When you suffer catastrophic injuries in a car accident, motorcycle crash, or any other kind of preventable incident, the costs can pile up quickly. This includes ambulance fees, medical treatment costs, and other healthcare expenses, which can amount to tens of thousands of dollars. To make matters more difficult, you may not be able to work or access the financial resources needed to cover these costs while meeting your family’s living expenses.

At Carr & Carr, we protect the rights of those injured by another party’s negligence. Should you hire us, we take your case on a contingency fee arrangement, so you don’t have to worry about paying attorney fees unless we win or settle your claim. This approach allows you to pursue justice without the worry of upfront legal costs, making skilled legal representation accessible when you need it most. 

Do You Offer Free Consultations?

At Carr & Carr, we understand the uncertainty and stress that can come with personal injury cases. To ensure you feel fully informed and supported from the start, we offer free consultations. This initial meeting allows you to discuss your legal matter with a personal injury attorney without any financial commitment. During this consultation, our team will listen to your story, assess the merits of your claim, and provide initial legal advice on the best strategies to pursue.

Arranging your free initial consultation is straightforward. You can contact us via our website, where you’ll find an easy-to-use form to request a consultation. Alternatively, you can call our office directly. Our friendly staff will help you set up an appointment at a time that suits your schedule. This first step is not only about gathering information about your legal issue but also about building a relationship of trust and ensuring we are the right fit to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

What Does a Consultation Entail?

An initial consultation with a legal professional provides you with a clear understanding of your legal options and the possible paths forward in your personal injury case. Here is a step-by-step breakdown of what you can expect during this initial meeting:

Initial Meeting: Understanding Your Case and Personal Circumstances

Your consultation begins with our experienced attorneys listening to your story. This is your opportunity to share all relevant details about:

  • The incident that led to your injury
  • The impact it has had on your life
  • Any correspondence you’ve had with insurance companies or other parties involved. 

Our goal during this phase is to fully understand the specifics of your situation so we can offer tailored legal advice.

Legal Advice: Assessing Feasibility and Potential Outcomes

After reviewing your case, your prospective attorney will provide you with our initial impressions and discuss potential outcomes. This part of the consultation aims to give you an honest assessment of what you might expect moving forward, based on the information provided and our experience with similar cases. We also talk about our fee structure and contingency fee policy. This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you may have about the legal process or the next steps.

Our consultation is a no-pressure, informative session meant to help you decide how to proceed. If you conclude that Carr & Carr is the right fit for your needs, we will have you sign an agreement before we begin working on your case.

What is a Contingency Fee?

With a contingency fee arrangement, the accident attorney’s fees are contingent upon the successful resolution of the client’s case. Under this agreement, the attorney only receives payment if they win the case or achieve a settlement in favor of the client. The fee is typically a percentage of the compensation awarded, ensuring that payment is directly tied to a successful outcome.

Other common fee arrangements include hourly and retainer fees. With hourly fees, clients pay for every hour a qualified attorney works on their case, regardless of the outcome. This can make it difficult to predict total costs. Retainer fees involve an upfront amount paid to retain the attorney’s services, which may not cover the entire cost of legal representation and can be used in conjunction with other fee types.

Benefits associated with contingency fees include:

  • No Upfront Costs: You do not have to pay any upfront fees, which can be particularly beneficial when you’re worried about cost restraints.
  • Alignment of Interests: Since the lawyer’s payment depends on the case being successful, there is a natural alignment of interests between you and the attorney.
  • Risk Mitigation for Clients: You face less financial risk, as you are not obligated to pay legal fees if the case is unsuccessful.

A contingency fee arrangement allows you to access justice without the burden of high initial legal costs. It also ensures that your personal injury lawyer is closely aligned with your success: you’ll have a strong advocate at the negotiation table (and in court if necessary) while you take time to heal from the accident.

Do You Work on Contingency?

At Carr & Carr, we handle a variety of cases on a contingency arrangement basis. The most common types of cases are highlighted below.

Personal Injury 

Whether you’ve suffered a slip and fall, been injured in a car accident, or experienced any other personal injury, our firm can help. We understand the toll these injuries can take on your well-being and are prepared to advocate vigorously for you during this challenging time.

Workers’ Compensation

If you have been injured at work, navigating the workers’ compensation system can be challenging. We assist clients in claiming their rightful compensation for workplace injuries, including medical expenses and lost wages. Our workers’ compensation lawyers can also help you appeal a denial if necessary.

Social Security Disability/SSI

Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims can be both complicated and stressful. Our firm assists clients with these cases, and it’s important to note that the fees for these services are controlled by federal law. The law states that the fee is 25% of your back pay or $7,200, whichever amount is less.

With our contingency fee arrangement, we take on the risk so you can focus on your recovery and peace of mind. By aligning our success with yours, we provide representation aimed at getting results. We have been protecting the rights of injury victims since 1973, and look forward to helping you secure your future during this difficult time.

Are Any Fees Not Covered By a Contingency Fee Arrangement?

When engaging with a contingency fee arrangement, it’s important to understand that while this type of agreement covers the attorney’s fees, there may be other legal assistance expenses that are not included. These are typically costs that the personal injury law firm incurs on behalf of the client to advance their case. Here’s a breakdown of potential costs that might not be covered under a contingency fee arrangement:

  • Court Fees and Filing Costs: These are fees charged by the court for the filing of legal documents. They are mandatory for processing your case through the judicial system.
  • Expenses for Gathering Evidence: This can include costs associated with obtaining medical records, police reports, witness statements, and other pertinent documents essential to building your case.
  • Expert Witness Fees: In many personal injury cases, expert witnesses may be required to testify or provide evidence on your behalf. The fees for these professionals are not typically covered by contingency fees.
  • Deposition and Court Reporter Costs: If depositions are necessary, the costs for court reporters and transcription services will also need to be considered.
  • Trial Exhibits and Preparation Costs: The contingency fee does not typically cover expenses related to preparing and presenting legal resources like trial exhibits.
  • Post-Judgment Costs: If a judgment needs to be enforced or defended on appeal, there may be additional costs involved.

At Carr & Carr, transparency is a key part of our client relationships. We ensure that all potential costs are clearly explained so that there are no surprises down the line. This approach allows you to make informed decisions throughout the duration of your case.
