What Costs Are Typically Included in Addition to Attorney�s Fees?

In addition to the attorney�s hourly wage, fees include office overhead, payroll costs, printer, ink and toner expenses, courier fees, postage, and other built-in costs necessary for litigating a personal injury case. In a particularly large and complex personal injury cause of action, overhead costs to ship discovery materials to other parties can become extremely costly, requiring additional payment from the client. Understand that your Seattle injury lawyer is not pocketing the entire amount of his hourly wage, and probably makes closer to one-third of that amount per hour.

Are Clients Responsible for Other Costs?
Clients will most likely be required to front the costs of any correspondence with a doctor or hospital. Doctors� offices routinely charge a fee for medical reports, copies, and postage. Your Seattle injury lawyer may absorb these costs or may require the client to pay these fees. Insurance companies commonly require voluminous copies of all medical bills, police reports, witness statements, or lost income information which may require payment of additional copying expenses. Other common out-of-pocket client expenses can include long distance charges, photographs, expert reports and court costs.
