Unfortunately lawyers will be unable to offer you any rates from Avvo without knowing the details of your case. Contingency fees typically range anywhere from 25% to 40% depending on the details of the case and on other factors such as whether a trial is involved. My office does offer free consultations. I would be happy to speak with you further if you would like.

Contingency fees are generally based on the complexity of a case -- i.e. how much time and effort will a lawyer need to expend to resolve your case. In addition, in court you may or may not recover the full amount of damages you suffered...i.e. medical bills. There's also the consideration as to whether there are any outstanding health insurance liens which will need to be repaid.
Consult an attorney for a thorough evaluation of your case.

Typical contingency fee is 33 -1/3%, but it can vary depending on the facts. The contingency usually only applies to the personal injury claim, not the property damage, since that is generally covered separately by the insurance companies involved. Most lawyers retained for a personal injury claim handle the property side of the claim as a courtesy for their client when all it involves is negotiating the claim with the insurance adjuster. If there is no insurance available to cover the property damage, then that is a different story, and raises other questions. Call for a free consultation.
