Ohio attorneys working hard on your behalf
There is usually no reason for you to be concerned about having to pay a car accident or personal injury attorney to take your case. At Clements, Taylor, Butkovich & Cohen, L.P.A., Co., we offer a free initial consultation. And if you hire us to handle your case, we normally do so in return for a contingency fee. When you are in a car accident, the last thing you need to worry about is how much money it will take to hire a lawyer.
A free initial consultation and contingency fee arrangement mean that you do not have to deal with this headache. This means that you do not have to pay us any money up front. In fact, you don’t have to pay us anything at all, unless and until your vehicle accident case settles or you receive payment from a lawsuit.
What is a contingency fee in a car accident case?
A contingency fee is a percentage of your settlement or award amount, which compensates your law firm for helping you with your car accident or personal injury claim. When we take your case at Clements, Taylor, Butkovich & Cohen, L.P.A., Co., you agree up front what the percentage will be. This way, you know what portion of any settlement or award will be paid to us and, more importantly, what portion of any settlement or award is yours. Most car accident and personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency fee basis.
Who pays for costs and expenses in a car accident case?
Your car accident or personal injury case can also be expensive to litigate. If you are unable to advance the costs and expenses needed to pursue your personal injury claim, your attorney may agree to advance such costs and expenses on your behalf. If so, your attorney will be reimbursed for any costs and expenses advanced from the amount you receive in a negotiated settlement or in the verdict after your trial.
Costs and expenses can include many things necessary to pursue your personal injury claim, including:
Using a personal injury attorney with the financial strength to advance necessary costs to pursue your claim is important. Costs and expenses are not always significant, but in some cases, they may run in the tens of thousands of dollars — or even more. Your attorney should control costs and not spend unnecessarily, but at the same time be willing to spend the amount necessary to properly pursue your rights.
