What Does It Cost To Hire An Attorney?

One of the most common reasons that people try to handle their own car accident claims is that they feel they cannot afford to pay for an attorney. They are already suffering financial challenges due to their accident, and they do not have any money to spare to hire someone to take their case.

At The Law Offices of Tim L. Fields, LLC, we handle all Louisiana personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis. We wanted to take a few moments to explain how contingency fees work, and help you understand how easy it is to have a lawyer by your side throughout your case.

There Is No Fee Up Front

First and foremost, you need to know that there are no costs that you will have to pay at the onset of your case. You are not going to have to pay us a large sum of money before we begin any work on your behalf. If we agree to take on your case, we immediately get to work gathering the information we need to support your claims.

All Of The Costs In Your Case Are Included In The Settlement We Seek

It is important for you to know that we are going to do everything that we can to get you the help you need. This includes having you see doctors or specialists to further evaluate and treat your injuries. You do not need to worry about paying for these costs, because any and all expenses that we incur while pursuing compensation for you are included in the amount of money we request from the other side.

How Can You Handle These Cases If There Are No Fees Up Front?

If your case settles or we prevail at trial, then we will receive a portion of the amount of money that you receive. We will explain this in greater detail during our initial consultation so that you understand exactly how and when we get paid. In the event that we are unable to recover compensation for you, there is no fee.
