Attorney Affordability

Can I Afford a Truck Accident Attorney?

Deaths and injuries in truck accidents are, unfortunately, not a rarity. The National Safety Council (NSC) determined that almost 118,000 injury crashes involving large trucks occurred in 2021 alone. 

Being involved in a truck accident can be devastating physically, mentally, and financially. If your loved one died or you suffered significant injuries in a crash, handling a claim without an experienced truck accident lawyer could be a mistake and leave you unable to recover the compensation you deserve. 

Moving forward alone risks losing out on what you truly deserve. Our skilled truck accident lawyers can help you win your case. We only get paid when you get paid. The Ammons Law Firm wants to help you navigate the legal process and help you receive full compensation under the law. 

Contact us online or call us at (281) 801-5617 to learn how your truck accident case can be handled to determine liability and your right to recover compensation under the law. 

The Importance of Skilled Legal Representation in Truck Accidents

Before explaining how truck accident attorneys charge clients, it is crucial to understand why hiring an experienced truck accident lawyer can be essential for your claim. Truck accidents can be complex and involve multiple parties, such as:

These parties have one thing in common: escape liability by pointing to others as being responsible for the crash, including the innocent injury victim. 

Our focused truck accident lawyers specialize in handling complex truck accident claims and can provide victims with invaluable guidance and support. We level the playing field, stand up to powerful global corporations (such as truck manufacturers), and fight for what you deserve. 

Are You Partially At-Fault for the Crash?

Your compensation claim can be considerably more complex if you have some fault for the truck accident. While laws vary on this issue, most states operate under the legal doctrine of comparative negligence. In Texas, for example, you can pursue compensation from the at-fault party even if you are partially responsible for the accident. 

However, your ability to recover damages from the other party is typically reduced by your degree of fault. For instance, if you are found to be 30% at fault for the accident and your total damages amount to $100,000, you may only recover 70% of your total damages ($70,000). If we get to take your case to trial, then the jury will apportion fault based on the evidence presented at trial. However, most cases we bring settle because trucking companies do not want to bet the farm against our skilled truck accident attorneys. 

Don’t handle this type of claim alone. Working with our truck accident lawyer can be essential, as opposing counsel may try to assign you a higher degree of fault, thus reducing the damages you can recover. 

What Is a Contingency Fee Agreement?

Many of our clients initially express concerns about the cost of hiring a lawyer. We understand. You may have a stack of medical bills and other expenses waiting to get paid. Fortunately, our truck accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. Instead of charging an upfront attorney’s fee, we only get paid if we win your case. Our fee is a percentage of the compensation you receive. You don’t owe us any attorney’s fees if we don’t win.

We work on a contingency fee arrangement so our clients can receive access to the best legal representation in the industry despite their current financial position. Our fee arrangement has allowed us to achieve over 400 recoveries of over $1,000,000 on behalf of injured victims just like you. 

Initial Truck Accident Lawyer Consultations

Our truck accident attorneys also offer free initial consultations, which can be an excellent way to determine whether you have a case. During this first meeting, you can discuss the details of your truck accident and ask any questions and address any concerns you may have. An attorney will evaluate the strength of your case and provide you with an explanation of your legal rights and options.

The Ammons Law Firm can offer you valuable advice in a free case review, whether in the hospital, in your home, or over the phone. If you can’t come to us, we will come to you.

Maximizing Your Truck Accident Compensation

One of the main goals of hiring a truck accident lawyer is to maximize your compensation. Serious truck accidents often result in significant damages, including medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. A skilled lawyer at The Ammons Law Firm can fight for your rights and work diligently for fair compensation. 

Hiring a lawyer increases your chances of obtaining a higher settlement or verdict compared to handling a truck accident case on your own. This can help offset the costs associated with hiring legal representation.

Additional Legal Expenses

While the contingency fee arrangement covers the lawyer’s fees, clients need to understand that additional legal costs and expenses may arise, such as:

  • Court filing fees
  • Deposition expenses
  • Expert witness fees
  • Cost associated with pulling official documents
  • Mailing expenses 

However, The Ammons Law Firm doesn’t want you to pay anything out of pocket. We know that you have enough on your plate as an injured truck accident victim. Therefore, we advance these costs so you can pursue justice without worrying about more bills.
