Contingency Fees for Car Accident Cases

The personal injury lawyers at Katz Personal Injury Lawyers 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.

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.

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...

After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Personal Injury Lawyers. My intuition told me to call. I called in and Briant Mildenhall talked to me.

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.

Robert Katz isn't your average personal injury lawyer. He has specialized knowledge and experience that the others don't.
