PI attorneys work on a contingency fee - no recovery, no fees. Be aware that there is a rather short time to bring sn action against a governmental unit. Usually six months.

You should contact the State Bar in your state. Many State Bars offer a low income or modest means program so people can sit down with a lawyer for a small fee for the initial consultation. The Oregon State Bar has such a program where the initial consultation cannot be over $35. Additionally, since you have a personal injury case, most personal injury attorneys offer a free consultation because they take cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that they front all of the costs of the case for you and get paid back when the case is resolved. You could try to find an attorney in your area who offers a free consultation and takes cases on a contingency fee basis. That way you would not have to pay anything until you receive your award from the defendant.

Most attorneys will take on a good personal injury case based on a contingency fee, meaning you pay nothing unless you obtain a settlement. However, if your case is not very good, you may not be able to find an attorney.

    Some lawyers will consider some personal injury and other cases on a contingency fee basis, but you should consult with lawyers in your area about it and ask, up front, if a free consultation is available. Good luck.

    I don't really see question here. If you need help at low cost then you may be able to get a free or low cost consultation with a lawyer. Try Legal Aid, not-for-profits and local bar associations.
