How Long Will a PFAS Lawsuit Take?

As with any case, there is no set amount of time for a PFAS lawsuit to be completed. These cases can be complex and may take months or even years to be fully resolved.

Additionally, there may be a filing deadline known as a statute of limitations in a PFAS lawsuit. Once this period has passed, you won’t be able to file a claim seeking compensation for your injuries. If you were injured by PFAS chemicals, you should contact our lawyers immediately so you won’t miss your filing window.

What is a Contingency Fee Agreement?

Contingency fees mean you will pay the attorney a certain percentage of the money you receive if you win the case or settle it out of court. If you lose your case, the attorney does not get paid.

What Do Most Lawyers Charge for a Contingency Fee?

While it depends on the type of lawsuit and specifics of the case, in general, contingency fee percentages range from 33% to 40%. This percentage varies depending on the amount the client could potentially win, the strength of the case, and other factors. Some contingency fees run as high as 50% (for small cases) and as low as 15% (for very large cases).

What Damages Could I Be Awarded?

There is no set amount of financial compensation awarded in a PFAS lawsuit. The amount awarded to injured parties depends on the following factors:

  • Severity and nature of the injury
  • Degree of the negligence of the liable party
  • Skill and capability of the attorney
  • State laws on damages

What Should You Do?

The most important thing to consider when seeking legal counsel for your case is not to let price dictate your choice. The best way to choose an attorney is to meet them, discuss the particulars of your case, ask questions, and have your concerns addressed directly.

Our lawyers will be upfront with you about how much we charge and what you could reasonably expect to pay. We are also willing to work out a payment schedule and/or other arrangements for your convenience. We may also be able to refer you to another lawyer who charges less but still provides high-quality representation if this fits your situation.
