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.

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.
