Whether you were injured in an auto accident, an animal attack or a slip-and-fall, your life is no longer the same as it used to be. You may deal with chronic pain, emotional problems and physical disabilities that prevent you from enjoying your life as much as you once did. You may also be facing mountains of medical bills and/or an inability to return to work because of your injuries. Regardless of the specifics of your situation, you need a trustworthy attorney to help you understand your legal options and get your life back on track.
About Personal Injury Cases in Louisiana
Personal injury cases result when an individual is injured because of the actions or negligence of another person or organization. In such cases, the injured party can bring a lawsuit against the person or organization responsible. For example, if someone falls on an unmarked wet floor inside a shopping mall, the shopping mall may be responsible for the person’s injuries.
If you file a lawsuit against the party responsible for your injuries, you will either settle out of court or your case will go to trial. In either case, you may receive a monetary award to cover your medical bills, make up for lost wages and compensate you for the pain and suffering you experienced during and after the incident.
Do I Need an Attorney?
If you have been injured because of someone else’s actions or negligence, you can choose to file a lawsuit on your own. However, personal injury law in Louisiana is complex, and the process can be lengthy and frustrating. For this reason, it is best to consult an attorney who has experience with these types of case. The right attorney can explain Louisiana law as it applies to your case and help you make the best possible decisions during every phase of the process. If your case goes to trial, your attorney will also be by your side throughout the proceedings.
