Many people put off the decision to hire a lawyer for financial reasons. Accident victims may be unable to work during their recovery and often struggle to keep up with the costs of ongoing medical bills related to their injuries. However, many personal injury lawyers offer a contingent fee arrangement for injury clients, making it possible for accident victims to get legal help without taking on additional debt.
How a Contingent Fee Works
At Kirshenbaum & Kirshenbaum, all of our injury cases begin with a free initial consultation to answer your questions, identify any potential problems, and explain your next steps. If you wish to hire us, we will sign a fee agreement that provides transparency of all of our costs and protects you from any further losses.
Financial benefits of our contingency fee arrangement include:
No costs up front.
In a contingency fee arrangement, our firm covers all court costs and legal expenses until your case has been resolved. Our fees are paid with a portion of the amount we recover for you, as well as reimbursement for any out-of-pocket expenses paid on your behalf. We ensure that you will have sufficient funds to cover your lost income, medical treatment, disability costs, and other losses stemming from the accident even after our fees have been deducted from the settlement.
No hourly fees.
There is no hourly billing in a contingent fee agreement. Our attorneys will determine the contingency percentage based on the time and effort it will take us to get you what you deserve in your case.
No fees if your case is not successful.
If your case is not successful, you will not owe us any fees for our legal services. You are only responsible for out-of-pocket expenses and the costs of filing the case.
