A Law Firm Committed
To Fighting For Justice
In Personal Injury
Suffering injuries due to the carless of another individual can be overwhelming, stressful, and can make you have questions about what to do next. Depending on the details of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for damages. However, you will need the help of an experienced Slidell personal injury lawyer who can review the various components regarding your claim to accurately determine if you have a case.
Building Personal Injury Lawsuits That Hold Negligent Parties Accountable
Personal injury lawyers play a significant role by helping injured victims who have been injured due to another person’s negligence receive compensation for damages. When you or a loved one was injured as a result of someone else’s poor choice, you should not be held responsible for paying for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses that may be related to the accident.
How Much is my
Many people often wonder how much their case may be worth. The overall value of a case is determined by various factors: the extent of your injuries, property damage, and future costs. Also, the following damages are calculated into the compensation amount:
-Medical expenses and future medical bills
-Pain and suffering
-Loss of consortium
-Loss of earning capacity
Consulting with a personal injury lawyer who knows how to review the details of a case can help provide a more accurate calculation of the compensation you will receive.
Personal Injury Cases
Motor Vehicle Accidents – Motor vehicles such as car accidents, motorcycle collisions, and truck accidents can result in life-altering injuries or even death. Vehicle accidents happen for a wide range of reasons, such as drunk driving, distracted driving, road rage, and driving tired.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Slip and fall accidents are more common than most people are aware of. Accidents such as falling on a wet floor with no warning sign to slipping on ice are examples of slip and fall accidents.
Animal Bites – Animal bites such as dogs can result in serious injuries. When someone’s pet bites, leaving an injury, compensation may be available for damages.
Premises Liability – Premise liability is when an individual is injured on another person’s property. This can include being injured at commercial properties such as grocery stores, gas stations, or neighbors’ property. From a business not having proper hand railing or a neighbor having a hole in their yard without having any type of warning in their yard, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Statute of Limitations
Every state has statute of limitations which a law set in place that gives an injured victim a set amount of time to file a lawsuit. It is essential to be aware of the law to ensure that you do not miss out on any potential compensation you may be entitled to receive. In Louisiana, an injured victim has exactly one year starting the day the accident occurred to file a claim. Failing to file a claim within that timeframe may result in little to no compensation. For this reason, being involved in an accident that was no fault of your own, you should contact an experienced Slidell personal injury lawyer who understands the statute of limitations and can help you protect your legal rights.
