In Florida, most personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, which means that they are paid a percentage of the proceeds they are able to recover from the responsible party. ​​​Thus, under most contingency fee contracts, personal injury clients do not have to pay any up front legal fees and costs, and the lawyer does not get paid unless there is monetary recovery in the case.  Florida Bar Rules of Professional Conduct set out the maximum permissible percentages for personal injury contingency fees agreements which vary depending on various factors:

Pre-suit settlement (before an answer is filed):                                          

  • settlements under 1 million - 33 ½ percent                                                                                                       
  • settlements between 1-2 million – 30 percent                                                                               
  • settlements above 2 million – 20 percent                                                                                                                        ​

Litigation settlement when defendant admits liability:

  • settlement under 1 million - 33 ½ percent                                                                            
  • settlement between 1-2 million – 20 percent                                                                            
  • settlement in excess of 2 million – 15 percent              


Litigation settlement when defendant denies liability:

  • settlement under 1 million - 40 percent                       
  • settlement between 1-2 million – 30 percent              
  • settlement in excess of 2 million – 20 percent
