Kirk obtains compensation for clients injured or killed in:
You’ve likely seen commercials, billboards, or other ads with personal injury lawyers declaring something to the effect of: “You pay nothing unless we get compensation for you” or “If we don’t win your case, our services are free.”
This is what is known as a contingency fee arrangement. Whether the personal injury lawyer attorney gets paid is completely contingent on whether he or she succeeds in obtaining compensation for their client. Almost all personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis.
When you hire a Lake Forest personal injury lawyer, they will bear the costs and risks of pursuing compensation for you. Accordingly, your attorney may wind up putting in hundreds or even thousands of hours into your case with absolutely no guarantee that they will ever get paid a dollar for all of that time, hard work, and expenses they incur.
But if your lawyer does obtain compensation for you, whether through a settlement or an award at trial, they will get paid out of those proceeds. How much they will receive for fees is based on a percentage of the recovery as outlined in the contingent fee agreement you’ll sign when you hire your personal injury lawyer. Also, they will take any costs or expenses they incurred in pursuing your claim out of the compensation they recover for you.
