Personal injury attorneys in Louisiana and the rest of the country often get a bad rap. Often times, personal injury attorneys are believed to be greedy, motivated by money only, and cold-hearted when it comes to actually caring about victims and their injuries. While the above characteristics may be true for some lawyers, there are hundreds of other attorneys out there for whom the above is completely false. This latter group of personal injury lawyers care about their victims, are empathetic to victims’ suffering, and are motivated by the idea of helping their victims recover the money they deserve, not just filling their own pockets.
We have recognized that when people come to us it’s usually a very difficult time in their life and we are often times their last hope for a financial recovery from the traumatic accidentthey just dealt with.
If you are searching for an attorney whom you can trust after you have suffered a serious personal injury in Louisiana, one who is experienced and empathetic to your needs we can help.
Working on a Contingency Fee Basis – We Succeed When Our Clients Succeed
One way that you can often tell a law firm’s true intentions is to pay attention to how the law firm charges.
Those attorneys who require an upfront or retainer fee (an advanced payment, usually based on an hourly rate) may be out to make a profit, and are less interested in actually helping you than they are in filling their own personal bank accounts.
While this is not always the case, those law firms that work on a contingency fee basis instead may have better intentions at heart.
The American Bar Association explains that a contingency fee basis means that the law firm getting paid (by you) is contingent on whether or not your case is actually won.
In a contingency fee system, you will never pay an attorney up front, and will not owe an attorney money unless you get paid, too.
In a contingency fee system, lawyers are not motivated simply by getting paid, but also ensuring that you recover the money amount of money for your losses as well.
Usually, the amount that the attorney gets paid is equal to a percentage of the amount of damages that you receive. As such, the more money that you get paid, the more the attorney will get – this helps to incentivize the latter party to work hard.
Money Helps the Injured
Whatever your feelings are surrounding personal injury attorneys, one thing is true: money helps the injured after a devastating accident has occurred.
When a person has accrued high medical expenses, the lack of a fair settlement amount can leave him or her bankrupt.
This is also true when a person has suffered a disability due to an accident through no fault of his or her own; not receiving a fair compensation amount can leave that individual unable to provide shelter, food, clothing, and other basic necessities for his or her family or one’s self.
Experienced personal injury attorneys work tirelessly on the behalf of victims for whom compensation really matters.
These victims are not those who are pursuing legal action as a get rich quick scheme; rather, they are people who have truly suffered losses and have no idea what to do moving forward in order to care for themselves or their loved ones.
Financial challenges that result from a severe personal injury can be crushing – personal injury attorneys help victims rise above suffocating financial burdens.
How Experience Affects Lawyers
When lawyers have been working at their jobs for years, they see a lot, and learn a lot from what they see.
The law firm of Neblett, Beard & Arsenault has over 150 years of combined experience helping accident victims. Over these years, we have learned how desperate many injury victims are, and how turning to an attorney is a last hope for many.
We have seen hundreds of people who are struggling physically, emotionally, and financially, who have suffered injuries that will forever change their lives, and who have lost loved ones in the blink of an eye.
Working on the behalf of these victims has not only provided us with years’ worth of experience—which allows us to know exactly what we need to do when a victim contacts us—but also has opened our eyes to how important recovering compensation on the behalf of injured persons really is.
How the Empathy of Your Attorney May Help Your Case
When you have been injured, you do not want an attorney working for you who is not empathetic to your situation. When your attorney is not passionate about representing you, does not believe in the work that he or she is doing, and is not dedicated to righting the wrong that you have suffered, then your case has a smaller chance of being successful.
Just as you would want a teacher, doctor, police officer, contractor, etc. who loves his or her job and really cares about the issues and the customer working for you, so do you want an attorney who is experienced, compassionate, and believes in your right to damages. You should never settle for less. You deserve someone on your side who is passionate about helping others.
