In a recent year, the Kansas Department of Transportation recorded 13,002 injury traffic accidents within the state. While most traffic accidents do not result in serious harm to the persons involved, approximately 20 percent of all accidents that year did result in injury.
Today, traffic crashes are a leading public safety concern in our city of Hutchison, Kansas, and statistics show that most people will be involved in several auto accidents during their lifetime. Unfortunately, many people who are seriously injured in traffic crashes do not think they can afford an auto accident attorney to fight for their rights.
For traffic accident clients of the Mann, Wyatt & Rice Midwest Injury Firm in Hutchinson, Kansas, there are no hourly fees or upfront fees. Rather, the law firm works on contingency fees.
According to the American Bar Association, “A client pays contingent fees to a lawyer only if the lawyer handles a case successfully.” The Bar Association explains that, in such arrangements, the attorney agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the recovery. If the case is won, the attorney’s fee comes out of the money awarded. If the case is lost, the individual is not required to pay the attorney.
