Will I Have to Pay Any Money for You to Handle My Case?
The legal team at Katz Wright Fleming Dodson & Mildenhall LLC handles car accident and personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee arrangement means you are not required to pay any money upfront for us to take your case. In fact, you will not owe us any money unless we obtain compensation on your behalf, whether it be a verdict at trial or pre-suit settlement. When you do receive compensation, you will cover the cost of our services by paying an agreed upon percentage of your recovery award. Read on for more information about how contingency fee arrangements work in personal injury cases.Contingency Fees Enable Injury Victims to Seek Recovery
When you agree to a contingency fee arrangement, your attorney’s fees are subtracted from the final verdict or negotiated settlement in your case. The payment to the attorney is an agreed upon percentage of the amount recovered. Contingency fees are frequently used in personal injury cases because the arrangement allows an accident victim to hire an attorney and recover fair compensation, regardless of whether he or she has the resources or can afford to pay an attorney at the beginning of the case.Benefits of Contingency Fee Arrangements
For injury victims, there are several benefits associated with a contingency fee arrangement, including:
- At the outset of your case and during the litigation process, you will not have to pay any large legal bills.
- You have access to legal assistance regardless of your income or financial resources.
- Except for agreed-upon expenses, you do not have to pay your attorney if you lose your case.
- If your attorney is working on a contingency fee basis, he or she is especially motivated to win because their payment depends on it.
In too many cases, accident victims do not receive fair compensation for their injuries and damages because they did not seek an attorney’s advice and representation under the misconception that they could not afford an attorney. The Georgia injury attorneys at KWFDM work on a contingency fee basis to ensure that people with valid personal injury claims can obtain the compensation they deserve.What to Expect with a Contingency Fee Agreement
The American Bar Association requires contingency fee agreements to be in writing and signed. The agreement must state how the final attorney’s fee will be determined, including the attorney’s percentage and whether expenses, such as costs for medical experts, police reports, and filing fees, will be deducted before or after the attorney’s percentage is calculated. Any expenses you will be responsible for at the conclusion of your case will be clearly outlined in your agreement.Contact the Legal Team at KWFDM to Handle Your Personal Injury Claim
