What is a
Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury is when you or a loved one is harmed due to the negligence or carelessness of another person or company. If you have suffered injuries due to the negligence or carelessness of another individual, it can be overwhelming, stressful, and add doubt and uncertainty as to what to do next. Perhaps you have lingering pain from an injury, or perhaps you find yourself sinking in countless repair to-do lists and heaps of medical debt that is leaving you hopeless. With the help of one of our personal injury lawyers, you may be able to recover compensation for damages that can alleviate your stress. Suffering an injury through no fault of your own can add unnecessary surprise and strain to your life, as well as the lives of your loved ones who rely on you. Dealing with pain caused by your injury can grow more and more uncomfortable each day as you continue to face mounting medical bills and, sometimes, even a loss of wages.

Common Types of
Personal Injury Cases
While there are numerous instances of negligence or recklessness that can result in a nasty personal injury case, some of the most common personal injury cases in Metairie, Louisiana include motor vehicle accidents, animal bites, and premises liability cases.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
As Metairie is so close to the buzzing city and busy roads of the New Orleans metropolitan area, motor vehicle accidents such as car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and truck accidents are unfortunately common and quickly life-altering. Vehicle accidents can occur for a wide range of reasons including drunk driving, distracted driving, road rage, and drowsy driving.
Premises Liability | Slip and Fall Accidents
One of the most common accident types related to personal injury claims includes slip and fall injuries which can happen to anyone. These accidents result from individuals falling on a wet floor that didn’t contain a warning sign, or slipping on ice, and can result in harrowing injuries including broken bones and concussions.
When a person becomes injured on another individual’s private or commercial property, a premise liability claim can arise. In these claims, individuals are commonly injured at stores, community centers, gas stations, or even a neighbor’s property due to lack of railing, inefficient warning signs, or broken steps, among other factors. In any circumstance, if negligence has occurred, you may be entitled to financial compensation for damages.
Unfortunately, animals, most commonly dogs, can leave their mark on unsuspecting victims, and sometimes these bites can lead to serious injuries. When someone’s pet bites you and leaves an injury, compensation may be available for damages.
