What to expect if I file a personal injury lawsuit, part I: Selecting, retaining, and paying an attorney

Personal injury cases in this state are almost always handled as follows: The plaintiff (injured person) retains an experienced personal injury attorney who handles the case on a contingency fee basis (the attorney will only receive a percentage of the money recovered after winning or settling the case). The defendant is the person/company who caused the injury. The defendant's insurance company hires an experienced defense attorney who handles the case on an hourly fee basis, with the hourly fee being paid by the insurance company, not the defendant himself. The defendant's insurance company also pays for all damages and other expenses. The defendant himself pays nothing.
