We can only answer this question for ourselves. Our Kentucky cerebral palsy lawyers believe that every child who has been hurt by medical negligence should be compensated for their injuries. Attorneys’ fees should not be a barrier to a parent seeking compensation for medical costs, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, pain, suffering, and other damages on behalf of their child.
Free Consultations and No Hourly Attorney Fees
To ensure that every child with a birth injury can make a fair recovery, we offer all families:
- A completely free consultation. We are happy to meet with you to review your child’s case at no charge and with no obligation to hire us. Our experienced attorneys will find out what happened to your child and let you know what your child’s legal rights are so that you can decide what to do next.
- A no fee policy. When you hire us, you won’t owe us any legal fees unless we win your case. At that time, we will be paid on a contingency fee basis. That means that we will be paid a previously agreed-upon percentage of your settlement or court recovery. We won’t be paid any hourly fees.
With these two policies, you don’t have to worry about the cost of hiring a lawyer to help your child.
The Cost of NOT Hiring a Birth Injury Lawyer
While you don’t have to worry about the cost of hiring a cerebral palsy attorney, you do have to worry about the cost of failing to hire an attorney. If you don’t hire a lawyer, you may leave money on the table. Often, an experienced birth injury lawyer can help you get more compensation than you could on your own, even after you factor in the contingency fee that you will pay for your lawyer’s assistance.
We understand that you have a lot of decisions to make after your child’s cerebral palsy diagnosis and that you may be overwhelmed. Let’s talk about your legal options so you can make the right decision for your child. Call us today to get started.
