|How much does it cost to file a boat accident lawsuit?|
I recently spoke to a man who was injured in a boating accident, and one of the first questions that he had, like many people, was how much money this was going to cost him up front and how much money it would cost him overall. I told him that the way that our firm operates – and I think the way most, if not all, plaintiff’s firms in South Carolina operate – is that we handle a case on what’s called a contingency basis. That means that the law firm itself actually advances all of the costs that are associated with prosecuting the case. In boating accident cases, this can include having expert witnesses or hiring medical expert witnesses to go ahead and evaluate your injuries and prove liability in the case. Those necessary ingredients to proving your case can get very, very expensive; for that reason, it doesn’t cost the person anything upfront. That’s how a contingency fee works, is that the lawyer basically advances all of the costs associated with prosecuting the case and, at the same time, the lawyer, at the end of the case, will take a percentage of whatever is recovered.
That’s why it’s important that you find an attorney early on who is experienced in handling boating accident cases. You want an attorney that you can work with who can go ahead and start vigorously prosecuting your case and building your case up for presentment to the insurance company, carrying it through litigation, if necessary. If anyone out there has been the victim in a boating accident case, please give us a call. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
