Attorney Truong provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. This area of law, known as tort law, includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.

Summary ¹

Some common examples of tort law include automobile accidents, defective products, medical mistakes, and slip and fall accidents.

The attorney’s fee for tort cases varies and may be a contingency fee, an hourly fee or a flat fee. A contingency fee is a prior arrangement between lawyer and client in which the lawyer receives a set percentage of the amount of recovery awarded to the plaintiff in a case—usually one-third.

This means that a client has no obligation to pay his/her lawyer unless the case is successfully resolved. An hourly rate is also a common payment option that involves an agreed amount of compensation for each hour the lawyer spends on the case until its resolution. In some cases, personal injury lawyers charge a flat fee, which is a set amount. These fee arrangements may also be combined depending on the nature and complexity of the case.
