What Is the Typical/Standard Contingency Fee In New York?
Except in situations involving medical malpractice, New York law has decided that a contingency fee of a third of the plaintiff’s verdict or settlements is fair and reasonable, and the maximum permitted. In non-medical malpractice cases, US Legal Law levies a fixed fee of 33 1/3% (one-third). Their charges in medical malpractice actions are based on the New York State Judiciary Law sliding scale, which is 30% of $1.00 to $250,000.00; plus 25% of $250,000. to $500,000.00; plus 20% of $500,000.00 to $1,000,000.00; plus 15% of $1,000,000.00 to $1,250,000.00; plus 10% of recovery over $1,250,000.00.

Can I Sue the Driver of The Car That Hit Me to Get Punitive Damages?
Punitive or exemplary damages may be appropriate to punish the offender for exceptionally egregious behavior and to set an example to dissuade others from participating in similarly egregious behavior. In New York punitive damages are a tricky area that can be applied according to the court and the type of the case. Despite the difficulties, the attorneys at US Legal Law seek punitive damages judgements in suitable circumstances in order to maximize compensation for our clients and ensure that justice is served. Appropriate situations may include those in which the defendant behaved with the intent to cause harm to another, was deliberately negligent, or acted with reckless disdain for the safety of others. Will my personal injury settlement be considering taxable?
I’ve Been Handling My Own Case, And the Insurance Company Has Finally Offered to Settle. So, Now It’s Bit Late to Seek Your Professional Suggestions?
No, in fact, we recommend that you seek expert advice before making any settlement decisions. Meet with us and we will gladly share our thoughts. It is possible that we will be able to obtain a result for you that is significantly superior to the one offered by the insurance carrier when you did not have legal representation.
Is My Conversation with My Lawyer Should Be Confidential?
Your lawyer cannot speak to anybody about conversations you have with them, whether you are engaging us for a personal injury case or any other matter. Attorney-client privilege protects confidentiality.
Will I Have to Appear in Court?
While filing a lawsuit is frequently necessary in order to receive the maximum amount of compensation from the insurance company, the vast majority of personal injury cases are settled without the need for a trial. You may be required to give an oath deposition explaining the details of the accident or your injuries, but this is often done in an office with only the lawyers and a court reporter present, rather than in front of a judge or jury. We will prepare you for your appearance so you know what to expect, and we will always be there to protect your rights and ensure you are treated properly, whether you are giving a deposition or testifying in court.
I Can’t Afford to Hire an Attorney in Advance?
You don’t need to pay your attorney in advance. We offer a contingency fee retainer to our clients, which means you only pay us when you receive your compensation at the end of the case. If you do not retrieve anything, you owe us nothing.
Will My Personal Injury Settlement Be Considering Taxable?
When it comes to compensation, we understand your rights. Personal injury compensation is not taxable. So, it doesn’t make any difference if you went to trial and won. The government or your state cannot tax you.
