"Boyd: Hi, I'm Boyd Anderson, a personal injury lawyer in Lafayette, Louisiana. We're often asked what are the expected attorney's fees and expenses with respect to a personal injury claims such as an auto accident or an 18-wheeler accident. Generally, in Louisiana, most attorneys charged between one-third and 40% of the gross recovery which is collected at the end of the claim. This allows people who cannot afford attorneys full access to the best attorneys in the land. Our firm charges 1/3, not 40%.
In addition to the attorney's fees, you can expect multiple expenses in prosecuting a personal injury claim, particularly, the medical reports as well as the medical expenses have to be prepaid. That's why it's important to hire an attorney with the financial background to fully prosecute your claim and represent you if you were injured through the fault of another.
