There’s no set cost when it comes to fighting dog bite and other injury cases in New Orleans, but the way the system works in most instances is that the victim pays nothing at all if your attorney doesn’t win.
This is what is known as a “contingency fee basis,” where your legal team assumes the financial risk in your case, and is only paid if they win for you.
Approaching dog bite and other injury cases this way means several things for you, primarily that if an attorney agrees to take the case, they believe strongly that they can win.
It also means that your attorney will make every effort to ensure that the final payout you receive is as high as possible.
Research indicates that in most dog bite cases that are settled without an attorney, insurance companies pay out as little as 10% of the real value of the case.
When you work with an experienced attorney, you’re likely to be compensated in line with your actual losses and any anticipated future losses.
This means that even when you factor in the fee that your attorney collects, you’re likely to receive a much larger award in a dog bite case if you work with an attorney than without one.
