Are you asking what is the fee for an attorney to represent you following your involvement in an accident while riding on a city bus? Most personal injury attorneys operate ona contingent fee basis, meaning they get paid when you get paid, anything from 25 to 40%.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.

What is your question? If you are asking what lawyers will charge for this sort of work, it is often on a contingency basis but you will need to discuss that with each attorney you consult with before you hire him/her.
The typical attorney's fee for Ohio is between 25% to 40% plus any costs incurred by the attorney in attaining a judgment/settlement. One issue that you will need to have addressed is the fact it is a city bus. These buses are often covered by laws limiting the amount of claims against a municipality. Also, do you know if the accident was caused by the city bus driver or by another driver? There are many questions that you will need to have answered. Claims against municipal transit systems can be tricky and you should seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney.
