Your California Personal Injury Lawyer | California Accident Attorney



Attorney Fees

Personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. That means the fee is a percentage of any recovery; The typical attorney fee which this attorney and most other attorneys have traditionally charged is 33 1/3 rd percent of any case that is settled without litigation, or 40% of any case that is litigated.

Fees are charged only on the bodily injury and economic loss portions of the claim. There is never any fee for vehicle repairs, rental reimbursement or personal property losses. In the rare event of no recovery, there is never any charge to the client regardless of the time spent or funds advanced by Attorney Altman in prosecuting the client's claim.

Fee Discounts for undisputed personal injury claims with valid insurance coverage may be available in certain instances such as:

  • Wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury claims*  

  • Serious injury and permanent disability claims*

  • Multiple claimants involved in the same personal injury accident*

  • Minors sustaining personal injuries*

* Note: Further fee discounts available under this section cannot be combined with any promotional discount offers or coupons.

Should the client instruct the Law Offices of David Laurence Altman to present separate and additional claims for group medical coverage, auto med pay, disability benefits, social security or other private insurance, attorney will be entitled to receive the same percentage of recovery as quoted for the bodily injury and economic loss claim.

The fees listed above are provided as a general overview only of the fee schedule and may not apply to all cases; the specific factual circumstances of a case may warrant deviating from this fee schedule. Client will be advised prior to signing any retainer agreement of the exact fee applicable to client's case.
