Will I Have To Pay Anything Out-Of-Pocket In My Maryland Personal Injury Case?

Attorney Eric T. Kirk will tell you.

No. There are no upfront fees.


The general answer here is no. Most lawyers will handle personal injury cases on what’s called a contingency fee basis, meaning, if there is no financial recovery for the client, the client doesn’t owe anything to the lawyer in terms of attorney’s fees. Under these types of arrangements, most lawyers will also advance the costs, including the cost of litigation for the case. Again, if something goes south, there is no recovery. The client is not responsible for reimbursing the lawyer for the costs advanced and doesn’t owe the lawyer any money. If there is a recovery, then the costs and an agreed-upon attorney fee percentage come out of the recovery.

I hope this addressed your question. Over the course of 25 years, I’ve found that fully addressing a legal question is best handled in a one-on-one, in person strategy and case analysis conference. I offer these to potential clients on a complimentary basis. Please use any of the methods under the contact tab at the top of the page to arrange yours.
