Can I Hire an Attorney Without Paying a Dime?
If you have been injured in an accident, the injury lawyer who accepts your case will work on a “contingency fee” basis. That means the attorney will be paid only a percentage of the amount obtained for you in a settlement or court award. The percentage is not set by law, but can be determined by agreement between you and the attorney. If the attorney is not able to obtain a settlement or award for you, you don’t owe a dime for attorney fees.
Costs for the fees charged by expert witnesses, such as doctors and accident reconstruction experts, can be high. If Stokes & Kopitsky accept your case, we advance the costs and will wait for reimbursement from the settlement or award. In one case where the police had wrongfully killed a man with young children, Stokes & Kopitsky advanced close to $150,000 of their own money in court fees and costs, took over 50 depositions, went to two meditations, and prepared for trial for weeks. At the last minute, the insurance company settled for a large amount, sufficient to fully take care of the man’s children.
If you have been injured, or someone in your family has been killed because someone else was neglectful or acted wrongfully, don’t worry about how you will pay for an attorney or court costs. If you have a good case, an experienced injury attorney will accept your case on a contingency fee basis, will advance the court costs, and will await fee payment and cost reimbursement from the settlement or court award. Stokes & Kopitsky have the experience and knowledge needed to handle the most complicated injury cases.
