The courts should not be reserved for the wealthy and the powerful. Arkansas car accident lawyer Alan LeVar believes passionately that everyone should have a fair shot at justice. In order to make this possible, Mr. LeVar, like most personal injury lawyers, works under a contingency fee payment system, which means he doesn’t get paid unless your case is successful.
The legal sysem isn’t cheap, and many innocent victims would be shut out from the courts if personal injury lawyers operated on a per-hour fee basis. With a contingency fee system, our car accident lawyer can work for you without the need for a large up-front payment.
Here’s how it works. Your attorney will pursue the case. If the case isn’t successful and you don’t win a verdict or settlement, there will be no fee. However, if you do win a monetary award, the attorney will receive a percentage of that figure.
The exact percentage your attorney will receive will be discussed in clear, open terms so you know what to expect. It can vary based on the nature of your case and the complexity involved, but a figure around 30 percent (give or take a couple percentage points) is normal.
So, in a case where you win a settlement of $100,000, your attorney will receive $30,000, plus reimbursement for any expenses he accrued during the process. You receive $70,000.
This system not only helps victims who couldn’t afford an attorney otherwise, but it provides an economic incentive for our Arkansas car accident lawyer to be honest with potential clients about the prospects of their claim. Mr. LeVar will never mislead you about your chances of success.
