How Much Does a Car Accident Attorney Cost in Kansas City?

Posted on

Car Accident Lawyer Kansas City

I am a car accident attorney. I handle car accidents for a living. I have represented hundreds of individuals that have been involved in car accidents. That being said, the most common question that I am asked after someone has been in a car accident in Kansas City is how much do I cost to represent them.

I Do Not Recover Any Money Until I Win Your Case

When I take a car accident case I will advance all of the costs of the entire process. I pay for the medical bill retrieval, billing record retrieval, deposition costs, court costs, expert fees, impound fees, and all other fees that go along with the litigation. I have paid tens of thousands of dollars to help my client recover as much money as possible. I will only take a fee at the end of the representation. If we don’t recover any money then I won’t take a fee. Moreover, I will reduce my fee if I am going to recover more than you.

How Much Money Do I Charge at the End of the Case?Krause & Kinsman

This answer depends on how complex your case is and how much money the case is going to cost me. My fees typically start at 33% of the total recovery. This is a pretty typical fee amongst lawyers. If someone charges less it is because they are not going to spend the time and money that I am going to spend on your case. I had someone in my office today that was in a car wreck with an uninsured driver. He had been to the emergency room and was taken there by ambulance. He wanted me to settle his case right away because he needed the money to pay for a new car. I told him I was not the lawyer for him because I try to get as much money as possible for the case as possible. To put it bluntly, I refuse to take a low-ball offer. After I told him that, he signed my contract and was really happy. He was willing to take 3,000 dollars from his accident but when he found out that he could get far more by letting me work on his case he was on board. I had another case where the insurance company offered 200 dollars and I ended up settling the case for 25,000 dollars two weeks later. Insurance companies know that I don’t take a lowball offer and so they give me their best offer.

 Should You Handle Your Own CaseCar Accident

My advice is always no. I have spoken at length in other blog posts about the problems with handling your own case. You can read more about it below:

[What to Do and Dot do after an Auto Accident with your Insurance Company!]

[Should I call my Insurance Company After Being in an Accident?]

When you handle your own case the insurance company knows that they can give you a low offer. They know that someone isn’t handling your case that does this for a living. There are certain ways you must write your demand, order your bills, order your medical records and to properly talk to an insurance company. Further, I know how to read insurance contracts. This is important. Using the same example as above, my client got hit by someone who didn’t have insurance. I knew by looking at his policy that he had uninsured motorist coverage of 25,000 dollars. This means that he has 25,000 dollars available to pay him for the accident. He pays monthly for that protection and he is entitled to that money.

How Long Will My Case Take?

Most cases will take several months after you are done treating. Some cases will take a lot longer especially if there are larger damages (injuries) or if liability (who is at fault) is in question. We push cases as fast as we possibly can by getting records and putting insurance providers on notice. We know that you need the money fast and we work hard on getting your money in your hand as fast as possible.

How Can I get Ahold of You?

We are in the office everyday talking to potential clients about their car accident case. You can call our office and we will give you a free consultation over the phone. I always recommend calling us before calling your insurance company that way we can do the talking. Insurance companies are notorious for tricking people into saying the wrong thing. We can talk with the insurance company for you that way you are properly protected and ran receive the money that you deserve.
