Choosing a lawyer is an important decision. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked by clients and prospective clients:
I've been injured – how do I know if I have a lawsuit?
Every case is different, and the best way to know if you have a case is to contact an attorney specializing in injury cases right away. If you’re in Louisiana, you can contact Attorney Tony Tramontana for immediate help with your case.
How much time do I have to file a suit?
This will depend on where you live; here in Louisiana, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases and medical negligence cases is one year. The earlier you get in touch, the better. We’ll be able to act quickly to help you protect your rights and decide if a lawsuit is best for you.
When should I call a lawyer about my claim?
Contact a Louisiana personal injury lawyer as soon as you are able to after you’ve been injured. Your lawyer can help you identify and gather key evidence and information, plus offer advice on next steps. If you’ve been injured, you should get medical care for your injuries, then contact us for help.

Medical costs, both current and ongoing
Lost earnings, both current and future

How much will it cost for me to learn about my options?
We know how much an injury can cost you and your family, and offer a free consultation to help you sort out your options and determine if you have a case. You’ll be able to meet with attorney Tony Tramontana and discuss the incident and get advice about what you can do next.
If I do have a case, how much will I have to pay to get started?
Many of our cases operate on a contingency fee – -meaning you will not have any upfront costs and that we only collect a fee when Tony wins you a settlement or wins your lawsuit. We know just how badly you can be impacted by an injury, missing work and coping with high medical bills, so we strive to offer contingency plans as frequently as possible for personal injury cases.
How long will my case take?
Every case is unique, so the timeline will vary depending on what type of case it is, how severe your injuries are and the complexity of the legal issues involved.
Will I have to go to court?
It depends on your case; some cases are settled before they ever go to trial, while others will require a court appearance. If you do have to go, Tony and his team will be with you every step of the way and equip you with everything you need to understand and get through the experience.
