Hiring a truck accident lawyer from our firm will not cost you anything up front to manage your case. Our personal injury attorneys handle cases based on contingency fees. We will use our resources to investigate, file your claim, and seek compensation on your behalf. We will deal with the insurance company so you do not have to.
You can discuss your case with our team for free before you agree to work with us. We provide free consultations for truck accident victims. You can learn more about your case, our services, and how our fee structure works during this initial conversation.
We Represent Clients on a Contingency-Fee Basis
A truck accident lawyer from our firm will not ask a client to pay a retainer or other upfront costs. Instead, our team will work based on contingency, which means our attorney fees will come as a percentage of the settlement or court judgment we recover in the case.
In this type of fee structure, our firm is not paid unless we recover compensation for the client. Receiving our fee is contingent on the win, and how much we receive depends on how much we recover. The benefits of this fee structure are:
- Your financial situation will not limit you from seeking legal help.
- Our team will front the costs of your case.
- You will owe us no attorneys’ fees if we do not deliver compensation to you.
- Our fees come out of your award rather than out of your pocket.
- We have further incentive to fight hard for you; when you win, we win.
We Explain Our Fee Structure Further During the Free Consultation
Before you sign on for representation, a team member will outline how our fee structure works and how it will apply to your case. That way, you can ask questions and learn what to expect if we win your case. We will outline the percentage in advance and explain how you will receive your settlement or court award at the end of the case.
When representing truck accident victims, we always do so on a contingency basis. Our legal services never require an upfront payment for us to hold the liable parties responsible and seek a fair settlement for you. We believe everyone should have access to strong legal representation. Part of our dedication to this is why we never charge crash victims an hourly rate.

Our Firm Has the Resources Necessary to Handle Your Case
Proving negligence and liability and pursuing compensation in a truck accident case is not cheap. A full investigation could include expenses related to:
- Obtaining the accident report
- Interviewing eyewitnesses
- Enlisting the help of accident reconstruction experts
- Calling in other experts and paying expert witness fees
- Filing motions to protect evidence held by the trucking company
- Surveying the accident scene
- Other necessary steps to determine fault and liability
Our legal team knows how to carry out each of these steps and has the resources to do so. We will not ask you to pay for any of these things up front. Instead, you can focus on undergoing treatment, healing from your injuries, and getting back to your previous activities. We take care of any filing costs and other related expenses.
Navigating a Truck Accident Claim Might Be More Challenging on Your Own
Many collision victims believe they will save money by handling the claims process on their own. They consider legal costs and the fees charged by a law firm extra expenses they do not want to sacrifice after a truck collision. However, there are several reasons why this may not be true:
- Our team may be able to find additional economic losses they overlooked.
- We will cover the cost of experts.
- We are familiar with calculating future and intangible damages.
Working with our firm on your truck accident case ensures you have someone on your side who knows how to navigate settlement negotiations and when to take a case to court. You will never have to make legal decisions alone. When you hire a personal injury lawyer from our team, you are getting an experienced attorney working for an agreed-upon percentage of your case recovery. This is true whether your case is worth a few thousand or millions of dollars.
How Can a Truck Accident Attorney Help with My Claim or Lawsuit?
In addition to investigating your accident and developing support for your claim, your attorney will protect your rights and ensure your best interests are always first. The insurer should not get to pay out less just because they want to save their company money. Our attorneys know how to build a case against a truck driver and commercial truck company, seeking compensation for our clients.
When we recover money for a client hurt in a truck crash, this money compensates them for the expenses and losses they suffered because of the collision. If this happened to you, you may be able to recover damages that include:
- Medical care costs
- Future related treatment and care
- Lost wages and reduced earning ability
- Property damages
- Miscellaneous expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death losses, if your loved one died from truck accident injuries
Your legal advocate will also determine the deadlines that apply in your case. Each state has a statute of limitations that sets a general rule for when you must act. Allowing this deadline to go by can bar you from seeking financial recovery.
However, exceptions exist. Based on the circumstances of your case, your deadline could come sooner or may be extended. Your attorney will be familiar with the statute of limitations and any exceptions that apply. Either way, you will want to act quickly to ensure you meet any deadlines.
It is best to work with a local lawyer who is experienced with state laws. If you were injured in a crash in New Orleans, a New Orleans truck accident attorney can shed light on the deadlines you face for seeking compensation.
