Hiring a lawyer in Kansas
The initial meeting with a personal injury attorney is normally free of charge. (Note that other legal specialties, such as criminal defense law or intellectual property law, are different.) After that, lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that they will receive a third of the eventual reward or settlement, plus whatever office expenses they incurred.
If your case ends up going to trial, the percentage could rise to 40% of the eventual reward or judgment. These numbers aren't set by law, so don't be surprised if your lawyer suggests something else.
