Fees You Will Pay Seattle Injury Lawyers For A Case Going To Trial

Posted Monday, January 11, 2016 by Chris Thayer

Your Seattle injury lawyers will explain the fees that you will have to pay if the case goes to trial.

Understanding Facts About Settlements And Trials

It is not possible to come to an accurate prediction as to which cases will be settled and which will go to trial. If a lawsuit is necessary, it is imperative that you do the following:

  1. Maintain contact with your attorney.
  2. Let your attorney know if any of your personal information such as your address, employment status, injuries or anything else has changed.
  3. Answer your lawyer’s correspondence if you are asked to do so.
  4. Provide documents your lawyer requests immediately.
  5. Keep a record of all medical expenses and income you have lost.
  6. Do not get into any trouble that could cause you problems in your case. This includes driving under the influence, stealing or any other illegal acts.
  7. Continue to work as normal and do not have any confrontations with your employer that can damage your case.

How Your Attorney Charges You For The Amount Of Work Done

A concern for clients is whether extra work for the lawyer from a case going to trial means it will cost extra. Some agreements require a higher percentage if a lawsuit is filed. You will be informed of this from the outset. Litigation can be difficult and take a lot of time. Preparing documents, taking depositions, preparing witnesses and doing research will all be part of the process. Because of that, there is a chance that you will have to pay extra for a lawsuit.
