ATTORNEY FEES: What kind of legal fees should I expect in a San Diego California slip and fall accident case?

California slip and fall personal injury lawyers generally charge their clients on a contingency fee basis. That means you pay your lawyer only if you win your specific slip and fall injury claim. Your lawyer is paid a percentage of the total amount recovered, and you'll sign a retainer or fee agreement with the lawyer you choose to represent you, clarifying all fees and charges. Generally, most San Diego slip and fall attorneys charge around 33% of the total settlement prior to a trial or anything else.  Remember that whether you win or lose the case, you are likely to have to pay the expenses of investigating and litigating your case, such as court filing fees and payments to investigators, court reporters, and medical experts, as well as the expenses of securing medical records and reports.  All of the above is required to be in writing with your lawyer per California law.
