Navigating Personal Injury Lawyer Fees in Kentucky: A Comprehensive Guide


At Mory & Colliersmith, PLLC, we recognize that sustaining an injury due to someone else's negligence can lead to significant physical, emotional, and financial burdens. As your trusted legal advocates, we aim to provide clarity and support throughout your journey to justice. Understanding personal injury lawyer fees is essential for our clients in Kentucky, and we're here to shed light on this crucial aspect of the legal process.


Contingency Fee Structure in Kentucky

Similar to many other states, Kentucky personal injury lawyers typically operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that instead of requiring upfront payments or hourly fees, our compensation is contingent upon the successful outcome of your case. If we secure a settlement or win a judgment on your behalf, our fee will be a percentage of the total recovery. If the case is unsuccessful, you owe us nothing for our legal services.


Percentage of Recovery

In Kentucky, the percentage of the recovery that attorneys charge as their contingency fee can vary but often ranges from 33% to 40%. This percentage covers our legal fees and the costs associated with representing you in your personal injury claim. The specific percentage may depend on factors such as the complexity of your case, the likelihood of success, and any unique circumstances involved. We believe in fair and transparent fee arrangements and will discuss this with you upfront.


Case Expenses

In addition to our contingency fee, there may be other expenses associated with pursuing your personal injury claim. These expenses can include court filing fees, expert witness fees, medical records retrieval costs, and more. At Mory & Colliersmith, PLLC, we typically cover these expenses upfront and deduct them from your settlement or award later. However, it's essential to clarify how case expenses will be handled with your attorney from the beginning.
