Q What and how does a Virginia personal injury attorney charge?
Most Virginia personal injury attorneys charge a contingency fee, usually one third of the final settlement. Some attorneys may charge up to forty percent for cases considered a higher risk. A contingency fee is a fee that you pay to the attorney if the outcome of your case is successful. Most personal injury attorneys do not charge an hourly rate as they want their services to be affordable in a way that allows the best resolution possible for you.
