Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Houston
Most of the motorcycle accidents in Houston that we see at the Baumgartner Law Firm involve significant injury. The recovery time, besides the mounting medical expenses and lost wages, can be overwhelming. What does it cost to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer? Fortunately, you don’t have to pay us out of your pocket for us to represent you after a motorcycle accident. The cost to hire a motorcycle accident attorney is nothing upfront.
The upfront cost for you to hire us. Zero
If we agree to accept your case, we will work on the case based on a contingency fee agreement. This means our pay is contingent upon us getting settlement money for you. If we succeed in getting money in your pocket, we charge a fee based on the gross money paid by the insurance company to settle.
How much is the contingency fee?
Our law firm charges between one-third and 40% of the total money recovered depending upon how far the claim advances. Other law firms may have different fee structures.
If we accept your case, we will pay the expenses to advance the case out of our pocket to be reimbursed if we obtain money from your case.
What are case expenses?
If we succeed in your case, we will be reimbursed for our out-of-pocket expenses. Expenses are money we have earned on other cases and are spending on your behalf.
Expenses are not part of our fee; they are reimbursed as costs incurred. Some typical case expenses include:
- Obtaining your medical records
- deposition costs
- filing fees
- experts and investigators
- obtaining other evidence, such as police reports
- Video and video editing
- trial exhibits
- and other related case expenses.
We do not charge for postage. We do not charge for faxes or even certified mail. We would be entitled to these expenses but don’t want to keep track of them. For that reason, we do not seek reimbursement of mail costs.
How do I get paid if the case settles?
Our motorcycle accident lawyers will receive the settlement check from the insurance company. The money is deposited in our law firm trust account, and we pay everyone simultaneously.
Can I talk to you before I agree to hire you?
We require you to consult us before we consider accepting your case. Typically, we will have a telephone conversation and determine whether we wish to take on this. We will be with you in person or by Zoom at your convenience.
If you are hospitalized, we can meet with you at the hospital at your request. As in all personal injury cases, the earlier you retain a top-rated injury attorney, the better.
How can a motorcycle accident attorney help?
You may not need a personal injury attorney. If your injuries are minor, it may be a case you can settle on your own. The general rule of thumb is that the more serious your injury, the more likely you need a qualified attorney.
Hiring a motorcycle accident attorney from Baumgartner Law Firm soon after the accident allows us to seek witnesses and view the scene before some evidence is gone. If you are struck by a commercial vehicle, the insurance company will probably send a team to the accident site before the vehicles have even been moved.
If more than one person was on the bike, dividing settlement money depends on many factors. Call us for a free consultation about your rights and options.
In short, don’t delay getting the best motorcycle accident lawyer you can.
