Frequently Asked Questions

Below you’ll find an updated list of frequently asked questions about Kentucky personal injury law:

What types of cases do you handle?

Mr. Thomas typically limits his representation to individuals injured as a result of tractor trailer collisions, automobile motorcycle accidents, defective products and medical malpractice. He also represents businesses in litigation in many areas including auditing and accounting malpractice. See the Practice Areas section for more information or call Mr. Thomas directly to discuss your case.

How much do you charge?

Fees vary from case to case. Most matters are handled on a contingent fee basis with fees ranging from 25% to 40% of the recovery depending on the complexity of the case. Other cases are handled on a flat fee or hourly basis. Court costs and case expenses are the responsibility of the client. In many contingent fee cases costs and expenses are advanced by the attorney and will be the responsibility of the client only if we win or settle your case.

What is a contingent fee?

A contingent fee is one that is earned only if money is recovered on your behalf. The attorney is paid a fee out of the gross proceeds of the case in addition to any expenses incurred by the attorney. In many cases the expenses of the litigation are advanced by the attorney rather than the client.

How do I know which attorney is right for me?

The only way to decide on a personal injury attorney is to talk to him or her in person or on the telephone.  It is also a good idea to ask friends or family about their experiences with attorneys in order to find one that might suit your needs.  Frequently, attorneys will assist you in finding another attorney that is more suitable for your type of case.
