Contingency Fees for Car Accident Cases

The personal injury lawyers at Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC provide legal representation in car accident cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay no attorney’s fees unless and until we obtain a recovery award on your behalf. Read on for more information about how contingency fees work in Georgia auto accident claims.

Obtain the Legal Advice You Need After a Car Accident

A contingency fee arrangement ensures you receive the legal advice you need after being involved in a car accident without having to worry about how you are going to pay for the service. Only after you receive compensation, either through a settlement or verdict, will you owe attorney’s fees. The amount is deducted from the final verdict or settlement in your case.

Rules for Entering into a Valid Contingency Fee Arrangement

According to the American Bar Association (ABA) Rules for Professional Conduct, contingency fee agreements must be in writing and signed by the client. The agreement, or contingency fee contract, must state how the attorney’s fee will be calculated, including the attorney’s percentage of the final settlement or verdict, and whether expenses will be taken out before or after the attorney’s fee is calculated.

This means any expenses you will be responsible for at the end of your case will be clearly stated in the agreement you sign, and you will know how much of your award will go toward paying your lawyer. In other words, there should be no surprises when it comes to paying your legal fees.

The Advantages of Contingency Fees

For car accident victims, there are many advantages to using a contingency fee arrangement to obtain a lawyer. For example:

  • You avoid attorney’s fees at the beginning and during the legal process.
  • You can obtain the legal advice and representation you need regardless of your income or financial situation.
  • You will not owe attorney’s fees if your lawyer loses your case.
  • Your attorney is motivated to win your case because otherwise they do not get paid.

The bottom line is that contingency fees help car accident victims pursue compensation for their injuries. In too many cases, people do not hire lawyers and end up settling their case for less than they deserve. If you have a valid claim, we want you to have the best chance possible of receiving a maximum recovery award.  With a contingency fee arrangement, you can have the peace of mind knowing that you will have effective representation without necessarily having to pay monthly legal bills.

Client Reviews
I was in a head-on collision last year that put me in a wheelchair with a fractured femur. I needed an attorney and my cousin recommended this firm because he had used Briant Mildenhall for his accident. I was glad I called Briant because he always did what he said he would do and kept me informed. We settled with the insurance company and I'm happy with the result. If someone I know needs an attorney, I will tell them to call Briant because he will get the job done. Michael G.
After a head–on collision I had extremely serious injuries to my back and neck, and some internal injuries. I was airlifted to the hospital and started a huge amount of medical expenses accumulating. I hired a lawyer recommended by a friend but I was not satisfied. My cousin told me about this firm so I talked to Briant Mildenhall about handling the case. I was at ease from the get–go. Briant kept me informed all the way through, was always reassuring and did everything he said he would do. He helped us get the money we needed to get the treatment we needed. Briant was fantastic! Ronda W. (Car Accident)
I was in a car accident that was complicated from the start. I looked on the internet and called a few different lawyers but they turned me down after they heard my story. When I called this firm Lyn Dodson asked me to talk to her in person. I met with Lyn and Rob Katz and after hearing my story they were confident I had a case. They vigorously pursued my case and over time we built a trusting relationship. Lyn even took time to help me with the traffic issues and other aspects of the case. They were always on my side and talked to me about the advantages and disadvantages of my options... Robert W. (Car Accident)
After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC. My intuition told me to call. I called in and Briant Mildenhall talked to me. He was very clear and honest about my options. As the case went forward, Briant and the staff at the law office always answered my questions right away. I was very confident in Briant's legal ability. He kept me informed every step of the way. I would recommend Mr. Mildenhall and the firm to anyone who needs an attorney. Antonio J. (Car Accident)
I would recommend the law firm of Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC. Lyn Dodson was my attorney after my auto accident. I had confidence in her legal abilities and experience. She did a very good job for me. She was always there to answer the many questions I asked. The firm is very professional. Lyn always gave you her undivided attention. The firm, especially Lyn, worked with you like a long time friend. Joe B. (Auto Accident)
I am 100% satisfied. I called Rob the day after the accident. Everything he said that would happen did, every step of the way. He went beyond what we needed him to do. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer. Steve H.
Robert Katz isn't your average personal injury lawyer. He has specialized knowledge and experience that the others don't. Timothy W. (Trucking Accident)
I have nothing but good and positive things to say about Rob. One of the unique things about my case was that I was involved in a bicycle accident with another biker. He took an unorthodox case between two bicycle riders and he could see the logic and liability in it. I was very happy with the result. Rodney H. (Bicycle Accident)
We just loved him to death. He acted like he cared about us, not just our case. He kept us posted on everything. He even called us on Sundays to update us. My case involved a rear-end collision where I had herniated disks and I had had a prior back injury. Complicated as it was, we were very happy with the outcome. Kathy H. (Car accident)
Throughout the course of my case, Mr. Katz kept me informed about its status, returned my telephone calls and was very attentive to my needs and concerns. Simply put, he cared not just about my case, but about me. Joseph B.
I was, and still am, extremely satisfied with Rob's work and with the outcome of my case. Rob strives to be there for his clients, and I was no exception...I would happily recommend Rob to anyone who is seeking legal assistance after suffering a severe injury. Joey E.
