What kinds of fees are associated with personal injury lawsuits?
In personal injury lawsuits in Florida, you should not be required to pay any fees or costs unless a recovery is made. Now, what type of fees are there? There are obviously the attorney’s fees. And then you may need expert witnesses, and they charge expert witness fees. There could be fees for accident reconstruction, for videotapes of depositions, so there’s lots of different fees. But the attorney will put up the costs and any fees in the beginning of the case. And you will not have to pay back that attorney unless and until he makes a recovery for you.
