When you have been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you may feel like you have nowhere to turn. You may have medical bills you can’t pay, ongoing health problems and emotional trauma. In many cases, people who have been involved in accidents aren’t even able to return to work and earn the money they need to cover the bills related to the injury. Regardless of your situation, you need an experienced attorney on your side to help you get the justice you deserve.
About Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury cases in Louisiana often arise when a person or organization is negligent and causes injury to a victim. Examples of incidents that may lead to personal injury claims include:
- Car accidents
- Dog bites
- Slip and falls
If you are involved in an incident that leads to your injury, you may be able to file a claim against the party responsible for your injuries. If your claim is successful, you may be able to recover compensation for any medical bills related to your case, wages you lost because of your injuries and property damage related to the incident. You may also be entitled to additional damages to compensate you for the pain, suffering and emotional trauma you experienced during and after the incident.
Filing a Claim in Louisiana
If you intend to file a claim against the party responsible for your injuries, Louisiana law requires you to file your claim within one year of the accident that led to your injuries. Louisiana also follows comparative fault rules, which means that the amount of damages you are entitled to receive may be reduced according to your level of fault for the accident.
Because the rules surrounding personal injury cases in the state of Louisiana can be confusing, it is best to consult an experienced attorney if you intend to file a claim. A qualified attorney can help you prepare your case for court and evaluate any settlement offers you may receive along the way.
