Automobile accidents can be one of the most stressful events an individual can go through. After the initial shock of the accident wears off, many people begin to worry about the costs of their vehicle repairs, medical bills associated with their injuries, and even a loss of income due to their inability to work. The financial pressures can be unbearable and many people feel hesitant about getting the legal help they need because they associate attorneys with high fees and outrageous costs. Because of this, you may find yourself asking, “should I hire an attorney, or represent myself?”
However, we’re here to tell you that there is a way for you to receive the quality legal representation you deserve! As a client of Craig P. Kenny & Associates, you will never have to worry about the cost of receiving top-notch legal representation. First and foremost, we offer free initial consultations so that we can get to know you, you can get to know your attorney, and we can learn about your accident and injuries. If we determine we can help, we will handle your accident case on a contingency-fee basis.
What is a contingency fee?
A contingency fee means that you will not have to pay any attorney’s fees unless and until you receive money from a settlement, arbitration award, or jury award. If you don’t recover, you owe us nothing! That means we only get paid for our legal services if we win your case. If you do recover, we only charge thirty-three and one-third percent (33 1/3%) of that amount as our fee for representing you for a standard case.
Additionally, unlike other personal injury firms, Craig P. Kenny & Associates guarantees that no matter the settlement amount, we never take more than our clients. If our contingency-fee stands to be more than what you would take home for pain and suffering, we will reduce our fee no matter the amount to make sure we never make more money than you do. After all, it’s your case and you deserve to be fully compensated.
What about costs?
The costs associated with your case are usually low in the claims stage. Examples of costs we may need to advance on your behalf are associated with postage, obtaining medical records and billing, and obtaining the police report. Costs may become more expensive if we have to litigate your case. However, you will not have to pay any of these costs out of pocket. The costs are reimbursed back to us at the end of the case from any settlement or award you receive. We always provide our clients with an itemized breakdown of any costs advanced so you can see exactly how the money was spent.
What’s the bottom line?
The bottom line is that obtaining outstanding legal representation should not be a concern for you after your accident. Let an experienced attorney handle the stress of your case so that you can focus on recovering and getting back to your normal life. The attorneys at Craig P. Kenny & Associates always have your best interest in mind and you owe us nothing unless we are successful. After all, we have and always will be a law firm committed to the client.
