Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC: Our Fees
Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC, doesn’t charge any legal fees unless we’re able to achieve a settlement or win compensation in the courtroom. Is this a risk? Only for us, but it’s one we want to take. We are confident in our skills, but that’s not why we offer this no-fee guarantee. Our clients go through some of the most horrendous situations imaginable. Some lose limbs. Others lose loved ones. Accidents and their injuries take a physical and mental toll on victims, but they also threaten financial ruin. Medical bills and lost wages leave victims wondering how to pay for it all while attempting to recover. These situations are difficult enough. We don’t want to add to the financial burden so we will not assess any legal fees until we can do our part to alleviate the financial stress our clients suffer.
Our Practice Areas
Attorney Fjeld and his team focus on certain types of personal injury cases that include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Wrongful Death
- Bicycle Accidents
- Dog Bites
Even if you don’t see your accident type outlined here, call us in any case. We have experience with other personal injury claims too. If we can’t take your case, we can typically recommend a Houston personal injury attorney who can. Personal injury claims can be complex, so you need an advocate who is well-versed in these types of cases.
To win a personal injury case, an attorney must prove the following:
- Owed a breach of duty to the victim (i.e. follow the rules of the road)
- The defendant breached their duty (i.e. ran a stop sign)
- The breach resulted in the injuries the victim sustained (hit victim’s vehicle)
- The victim suffered damages in association with their injuries (the victim was hospitalized with serious physical injuries: head and neck trauma)
Sometimes it’s a straight-forward matter to prove negligence. There may be witness accounts of the accident. There may even be video footage. Often, it’s more complicate than that. Sometimes victims even share some of the blame. In Texas as in many other states, parties involved in an accident can be assigned a percentage of blame. If you are texting at the time another driver runs through a red light, striking your car, you may be assigned 30 percent of the blame. In this case, the other driver would be accountable for 70 percent of the damages.
How Long Does It Take to Resolve a Personal Injury Case?
Every accident claim is different. It’s impossible to say—and no attorney should–how long a claim will take to resolve either through negotiation or litigation. Some claims can be resolved in weeks. It can take a couple years in some extremely complex cases. On average, most of these types of claims are resolved in several months to a year. We understand that clients fear their case will drag on and on. We’ll do everything we can to expediate the process while doing our best to hold the at-fault party accountable for their negligence or wrong-doing.

Compensation in Texas
The state of Texas allows victims of accidents the opportunity to seek damages in a civil suit. There are two categories of damages that victims can claim: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages are the medical expenses and lost work wages associated with the victim’s injuries. Some of the economic damages a plaintiff can demand include:
- Current medical expenses
- Future medical costs
- Funeral expenses
- Lost work wages
- Lost sales
- Lost benefits
- Lost pension
Non-economic damages refer to the pain and suffering that plaintiffs suffer. This sum is important. Although it can’t undo the physical and mental anguish the victim suffers, it forces the at-fault party to take accountability for their wrong-doing.
Negotiating a Settlement
Attorney Fjeld has a proven track record of success at the negotiation table. Many insurance providers and defendants are open to negotiating a settlement when their fault is clear. Avoiding a court battle and its costs is something many defendants prefer. Having calculated what we believe is a fair compensation amount, we can enter into negotiations with the at-fault party. It’s up to the client to accept or decline any offers. If our client finds an offer agreeable, we can settle the case. If the at-fault party refuses to sit down and talk about a settlement or does not offer a fair sum, we will take the case to court.
Litigating for Fair Compensation
Attorney Fjeld has 15 years of experience litigating personal injury cases. He will represent your claim aggressively before a judge and jury. He gets to know every detail of your case so that he can provide you with the effective representation you need in the courtroom.
