Is Morgan and Morgan Free?

At Morgan and Morgan, our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they will only get paid if they win your case. In other words, you won't pay any upfront fees when you hire us to represent you. Instead, we will take a percentage of the settlement awarded to you at the end of your case. That explains our slogan, the Fee Is Free™.

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Happens if I Do Not Win?

    It's pretty straightforward: you don't owe us anything if you don't win your case. So, we will accept the losses and move on.

  • What Does “No-Obligation Case Evaluation” Mean?

    A "no-obligation case evaluation" is a service that helps potential clients understand whether they have a viable case and their legal options. You can meet with a Morgan and Morgan personal injury lawyer to discuss your case and get a professional opinion on its merits without any obligation to hire that lawyer or pursue legal action.

    Here's a summary of what to expect during a free, no-obligation case evaluation:

    • A review of the details of your case, such as how the injury occurred, the extent of your injuries, and any medical treatment you've received.
    • An inquiry into the impact that the injury has had on your life, such as lost wages, depression, anxiety, or any other form of emotional distress.
    • An honest assessment of your chances of winning the case and explain the legal options available to you.
    • An estimate of the potential damages you could recover, such as compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

    Once you understand your case better, it will be entirely up to you to decide whether to hire a Morgan and Morgan attorney. If you let us represent you, we will discuss additional details, such as the contingency fee structure and what you need to do to help strengthen your case.

  • What if I Decide to Represent Myself?

    As mentioned, you're not obligated to hire Morgan & Morgan to represent you. However, you should consider some important factors before deciding not to hire an attorney.

    Firstly, hiring Morgan and Morgan to represent you means you can pursue your case without paying anything out of pocket. Keep in mind that personal injury cases are expensive, and you may end up spending more than your case’s value if you do not hire a lawyer.
     
    Secondly, a personal injury attorney who works on a contingency fee basis would want to win your case more. Again, this is because they only get paid if you win.

    Thirdly, while you can represent yourself, you need vast legal knowledge and experience to do so. And not just knowledge of the general personal injury law, you need to understand the specifics of your case, whether it's slip and fall, car accident, product liability, wrongful death, or anything between. It takes attorneys years of hard work and dedication in law school to understand these laws, let alone gain the confidence to practice them.

    Finally, and importantly, you may not have the resources required to pursue such a case. These include but are not limited to expert witnesses, medical experts, accident reconstruction experts, and paralegals.

    On the other hand, Morgan and Morgan is America's largest injury firm with powerful resources to build strong cases and fight for the rights of the injured. That's how we've managed to recover over $20 billion as compensation for our clients so far.

  • Will I Pay More Fees if My Personal Injury Case Goes to Trial?

    In the unlikely event that we cannot secure a fair settlement for your case during our negotiations out of court, it may become necessary to proceed to trial. It's important to note, however, that the contingency fee arrangement we have in place will not change in this situation.

    This means that you can rest assured that we will continue to work just as diligently to fight for your rights, whether the case is resolved with a settlement or requires additional preparation for trial. Regardless of the outcome, we will receive the same percentage of the settlement or award as agreed upon in the contingency fee agreement.

    We understand that the possibility of going to trial can be daunting, but we want you to know that we are fully committed to your case and will do everything in our power to achieve a positive outcome, regardless of the challenges we may face. With our expertise, track record, resources, and dedication, you can trust that your case is in good hands.

  • What Damages Can a Morgan and Morgan Attorney Help Me Recover?

    Economic, non-economic, and punitive damages are the most common in personal injury cases. That said, the exact damages we can recover depend on the nature of your case.

    Economic damages include tangible losses like medical expenses, household expenses, lost wages and earning potential, and property damage. On the other hand, non-economic damages include intangible losses like pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, scarring and disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life.

    In addition, if the defendant was extremely negligent, you may recover punitive damages. These damages are designed to punish the defendant for negligence and set an example for others in similar situations.

  • Are Personal Injury Settlements Taxable?

    Generally, personal injury settlements are not taxable by the federal government or most state governments. This means you will not have to pay income taxes on the money you receive as settlement for your injuries.

    However, some exceptions could apply to your case. For example, you may need to pay income taxes on compensation for lost wages or lost profits. This is because you would still pay income taxes had it not been for the injury you sustained due to someone else's negligence.

    Similarly, suppose you claimed a tax deduction for medical expenses related to your injury in a prior year and then received a settlement for those same expenses. In that case, you may be required to pay taxes on the settlement amount.

  • How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

    It is impossible to determine the value of your case without consulting an attorney. Only after reviewing your case's unique facts will the attorney understand what you may be entitled to as compensation. To have a rough idea of what you may be able to recover, the attorney will consider if:

    • your injuries were severe;
    • you incurred any medical costs due to the injury;
    • you lost wages and your earning capacity;
    • you endured extreme pain and suffering as a result of your injuries; and
    • your case is strong enough to warrant a particular settlement amount.

    These are just examples of factors your attorney will consider when determining the settlement amount you deserve, not a conclusive list.

  • What Are My Chances of Winning a Personal Injury Case With a Lawyer?

    Many studies have shown that hiring a personal injury lawyer can increase your chances of winning your case. While that's true, most people don't know that it all narrows down to the type of attorney you hire to represent you. If you hire an inexperienced or under-equipped attorney, you'll have lower chances of winning.

    Also, it's important to understand what the concept of 'winning' actually means in personal injury cases. For some, winning is being able to receive a payout for their injuries. But that's not how Morgan and Morgan attorneys look at it.

    At Morgan and Morgan, winning a case goes beyond securing compensation. Instead, we focus on obtaining the right compensation for our clients. In other words, we just don't settle to close the case and move on to the next.

    Sadly, such a scenario is far too common in many injury firms throughout the country. So, if you or your loved one has been injured due to someone else's negligence, don't just call any attorney; call Morgan and Morgan. Our attorneys understand what winning means and how important it is to help you secure the compensation you need and deserve.

  • How Can a Morgan and Morgan Personal Injury Attorney Help?

    Besides offering a free, no-obligation case evaluation and a contingent payment system, Morgan and Morgan can help build a case the defendant will struggle to beat. This is because our attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience in handling personal injury cases. They understand the legal process at the federal and state levels and know how to navigate the complex laws and regulations that govern such cases.

    When you hire us to represent you, we will thoroughly investigate your case, collect evidence to support your claim and maximize your compensation. Once we have sufficient evidence to prove the other party's negligence, we will develop a legal strategy tailored to the specific circumstances of your case. Then, we will file a claim with the other party's insurance provider or any entity responsible for your compensation.

    Over 90% of personal injury cases settle out of court. However, if the other party refuses to cooperate with us, we will take the matter in front of a judge or jury. And if we win, the other party will compensate us for our legal costs.
