Were you in an unintentional injury accident in Louisiana? Do you have a personal injury and don’t know how you’ll pay for treatment? Does the thought of having to raise money for unexpected expenses stress you out? After all, expecting the unexpected is harder than it sounds. How can you expect the unexpected? Isn’t an accident, by definition, unexpected? Unexpected accidents and the injuries caused by them can be inconvenient at best and life-altering at worst. Who wants to pay for an ambulance ride when you did nothing wrong? Who wants to pay for an unexpected visit to the emergency room? Or who wants to pay the deductible to have their vehicle fixed because the person that hit you is contesting fault? It can be overwhelming and frustrating, but getting the help you need is essential.
We get it! You were not expecting these problems, and you do not know what to do. You wish you could hire a lawyer, but the last thing you need or can afford is another bill. Fear not! Many Louisiana personal injury lawyers are willing to review and possibly handle your case on a contingency basis. That means that there are no upfront, out-of-pocket legal fees for you to pay, and you only must pay the lawyer if you win your legal case. If you win your case, the lawyer will be entitled to a percentage of the monetary award that you receive.
Notably, the type of contingency fee and percentage of the monetary award that the lawyer receives may vary from lawyer to lawyer, so you should speak with the lawyer regarding his or her fee prior to undergoing representation. A written contract should be signed to memorialize the terms of any agreement for representation in a personal injury case. Additionally, if you win, you will generally be responsible for court fees, expert witness fees, and other expenses expended by the lawyer in pursuing your case. But if you are hurt and believe you may have a personal injury case, you should contact an accident attorney immediately for a free consultation.
Personal injuries cases include, but are not limited to, injuries that result from the following:
In such a tough time, you need someone that will fight for you, not someone that’s going to kick you while you're down or add fuel to the fire. You should not be prevented from pursuing a viable claim simply because you cannot afford to hire a lawyer upfront. A contingency contract allows you to obtain a lawyer without needing money upfront for legal representation.
