LOUISVILLE CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER CHARGES A REASONABLE FEE IN CAR ACCIDENT CASE
April 28, 2015
Louisville car accident lawyer Matt Troutman has been a car accident lawyer since 1986 and, during the entire time he has been practicing law, his contingency fee in an auto accident case has been 33 & 1/3%. There is no law guiding the amount of attorneys’ fees other than the requirement that the fee must be “reasonable.” Other car accident lawyers have been raising their fee to 35% and 40% and the question is whether that is reasonable.
Due to inflation, verdicts for victims of auto accidents have increased over time and as a result I believe there is no justification for lawyers to raise their contingency fees. The attorneys who pay thousands of dollars on advertising may justify the higher fees to cover their advertising costs, but consumers need to be aware of this fact. When looking for a Louisville car accident lawyer carefully consider the amount of his fee and do not simply accept that what he requires is reasonable. Also, if a car accident lawyer ever tells you that his exceptional skills warrant a higher fee remind him that if this is true then he will make more money by obtaining a larger settlement or jury verdict and thereby be paid for his skill. By charging a higher fee he is simply taking more of the settlement regardless of skill.
