There Is No Charge Or Fee For Your Personal Injury Case Until You Recover Compensation
After having a conversation with an Ohio personal injury lawyer at Kisling, Nestico & Redick, you may decide you would like us to pursue your case on your behalf. The consultation is free, yet many people think that they will have to pay a large fee to retain our services if they want us to take their case forward. However, we do not require any payment during the entire proceeding of your case, and we will only recover compensation for ourselves after you win or are awarded money in your case.
Our use of a contingency fee means that you will only pay us in the event that we successfully help you recover damages. A contingency fee can only work in cases where we are seeking money on your behalf, instead of requiring the other side to start or stop some sort of action. The details of our agreement with those with whom we are seeking to recover damages include:
- Our office will agree to work on your case for a fixed percentage of the recovery.
- We will pay for all of the fees and other costs that go into winning your case.
- If for some reason we are unable to recover any money for you, you will not be required to pay us anything.
What Exactly Are The Legal Costs And Fees In A Personal Injury Case?
When our office agrees to take a case, we understand that we will not make anything until our clients recover damages for their injuries. This means that we will bear the entire expense of your case as it proceeds to the very end. Conducting a successful personal injury suit can be costly, but our office has confidence that we can recover sufficient compensation from the parties responsible for your injuries.
While the terms “fees” and “costs” are often used interchangeably, a case’s legal fees are often considered to be the expenses that the attorneys handling the case take as payment for their services. As your personal injury attorneys, our office’s expenses include paying for the wages and salaries of attorneys, paralegals, administrative assistants, and any other professionals that may work on your case.
Beyond attorney fees, the term “costs” is often used when referring to the many expenses that are necessary for conducting a successful lawsuit. Costs can add up quickly in a lawsuit, but they vary in each case since no two set of circumstances are alike. When our office is working on your case, you will not be required to pay any of the costs related to your lawsuit which could include:
- Court costs, which include filing fees that can be up to $400 depending on the local court, and copies of official transcripts that can be hundreds of dollars for day-long testimonies.
- Professionally made accident reconstructions that can convince the court of the legitimacy of your case.
- Conducting depositions, which are non-trial official testimony, that are added to the record on your case. Several hours can add up to $1000, but it can be essential to allowing your attorney to illustrate on the official record exactly what happened in your case.
- Investigator expenses are common in cases where some information is difficult to find, and a specialized private investigator must be hired to find crucial evidence.
- Expert witnesses must have their time compensated if they are to be called to a deposition or trial hearing in order to testify about your attorney’s argument in your case. This is required if you are filing a malpractice claim, and the expert witness for your side will be a third-party doctor whose time will cost thousands of dollars.
