How to Hire an Attorney When you Have No Money

Posted Wed 6th May, 2015 | by | on Attorney

If you’ve been injured in an accident and have been trying to handle your claim yourself, the legal system may seem impossibly confusing.  Insurance companies who treated you well when trying to get your business, now treat you badly and don’t want to compensate you for your injuries. Claims representatives who are supposed to help you, are too often either rude to you, or completely ignore you.  And most disheartening, when you are released from treatment, a mountain of medical bills awaits you. 


Even though they feel overwhelmed and don’t know what step to take next, many injured people continue to try to handle their claim on their own because they don’t have the money to hire an attorney.  However, at Kidneigh & Kaufman, you can hire an attorney even if you don’t have the money to pay us up front.  This is because our Denver personal injury attorneys handle cases on a contingent fee basis, meaning we don’t get paid until you get paid.


At Kidneigh & Kaufman, our injury attorneys understand that the insurance companies and their claims representatives have only one motivation- the more injured people they can move out of the system relatively quickly, or at little cost, or both, the more money they keep for themselves – and cost you!  By law, insurance companies must offer some compensation in order to stay in business, but  their main goal is to minimize the compensation coming to you- which maximizes profit for them.


Yet, you can utilize this same principle to your advantage.  When you hire a Kidneigh & Kaufman personal injury attorney without giving us any money up front, we will work on a contingency fee, meaning that when we make your share of compensation larger, we obtain more compensation for both of us!  Insurance companies are well aware that typically, an injured person represented by an attorney will receive more compensation, often multiple times more compensation – compared with those injured persons who are not represented and choose to go it alone.  The Denver injury lawyer you hire is your only protection against a team of experienced professionals, including insurance companies, claims representatives, and insurance defense attorneys, who are well trained at minimizing your compensation! Don’t go it alone!
