Do I pay anything up front?

Most personal injury victims are, at the end of the day, concerned only with the ultimate value of their claim, i.e. the "net", that is, after all costs, fees and expenses are deducted. Understandably, that is really all that matters. So, if you're spending money up front, out of pocket, then that is obviously going to effect the net recovery, as your out of packet expenditures will need to be recouped. Most Baltimore personal injury lawyers handle Maryland car accident and other personal injury cases on a "contingency fee basis". Meaning, your personal injury lawyer's fees are taken, if at all, only out of your recovery. If there is no recovery, there are no lawyers fees. I offer my Maryland personal injury clients a reduced fee program that allows them to keep a higher percentage of the overall recovery, because the attorney's fee percentage is lower than that typically found in the community. Most Baltimore personal injury lawyers routinely advance costs in Maryland car accident and other personal injury cases. In the typical Maryland car accident claim, the injury victim is not going to have to pay up front for fees, or, unless you've agreed otherwise with your Baltimore personal injury lawyer, for costs.
