The best way to answer your question would be to schedule an initial consultation with a traumatic brain injury attorney. Most of the lawyers offer a free consultation and get your approval in advance about the billing method. T
There are lawyers who charge on an hourly basis. You may also want to know about the other fees you have to pay other than the hourly fee. It’s also important to discuss the fees involved in the event that you and the other party involved arrive at a favorable settlement.
Most lawyers offer their services on contingency. This means that you owe nothing unless you arrive at a favorable settlement or the court leans in your favor. If you win a settlement or a verdict, the legal fee is about a third of the amount of money you’ll recover. If you don’t win the case, you’re free to walk away without paying a cent to lawyer fees.
In some cases, lawyers that charge on a contingency basis will refuse a case for whatever reason (no grounds, cost and time does not justify the amount you can possible recover, etc). At this point, you may want to consider hiring an attorney who charges per hour. Most of these attorneys require you to pay an up-front amount before they proceed with the case. Generally, their fees are between $100-$300 per hour. Remember to ask your attorney up front how much they charge and how long they think your case will take.
