No Fee For Kids – A Pledge to Families of Children 12 and Under Who Have Been Injured
10/09/2011

Philadelphia personal injury lawyer, Stuart A. Carpey has introduced his “No Fee for Kids!” program.

Online PR News – 09-October-2011 – – August 2, 2011 - Stuart A. Carpey, a nationally known Philadelphia personal injury lawyer, has introduced his “No Fee for Kids!” program. Whether an attorney should charge a legal fee to a child when that child's car accident case is settled without having to file a lawsuit, is a decision Mr. Carpey has decided to confront head-on.

What businessperson gives away services for free? "It's the right thing to do," says Carpey. "When a case involving a child is settled with the insurance company pre-suit, the settlement and the lawyer's fee must be approved by a judge in the county where the accident took place. Too many times I've been in court and have seen lawyers attempt to charge a fee on cases involving a child, where the child was in the same accident as his or her parent, and the fee, as far as I was concerned, was unjustified. I've decided to do something about that."

Here's how the "No Fee for Kids" program works.

It must be a car accident case where the child was involved in the same accident as one or both of his parents.

The program applies to car accident cases only.

It applies to cases that are settled where a lawsuit does not have to be filed.

It applies for any child who is 12 or under at the time of the accident.

It has to be a county where Mr. Carpey regularly practices.

It must be a case that is not referred to Mr. Carpey by another lawyer.

Carpey has been trying to get other Philadelphia lawyers to take the pledge, with only minimal success. Information about the program can be found at http://www.carpeylaw.com/about-us/no-fee-for-kids.
