personal injury: burn injuries

Burn Injuries

We often face the danger of a burn injury as we go about our day, without even realizing it. Whether you are in a home or workplace, if a burn risk is present, the owner of the property has a responsibility to warn occupants of their risk. Otherwise, they may be found negligent and held at-fault for an accident resulting in burn injury.

Personal Injury: Back Injuries

Back & Spinal Cord Injuries

Severe spine trauma and spinal injury can be devastating as your sensory functions and mobility can be permanently damaged. Our New Orleans injury attorney represents victims of accidents to help them recover financial compensation.

personal injury: brain injuries

Traumatic Brain Injuries

The brain is the control center of our bodies and personalities, which means an injury can have serious consequences for our quality of life. Depending on the part of the brain that is injured, a person can experience problems with their digestion, senses, muscle movement, immune system, and other bodily functions.

catastrophic personal injury

Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are injuries which cause damage to the victim’s physical mobility and cognitive abilities. These injuries are defined as “catastrophic” because when they occur, they have a permanent effect experienced by the victim.

Laws in New Orleans That Could Affect Your Case

Before you move forward with your case, you should know the laws in New Orleans that may affect your case. These laws include the statute of limitations and contributory negligence laws.

Statute of Limitations

The ‘statute of limitations’ is the amount of time you have to file a claim before it expires. You will need to file your claim within one year of the accident date to have your case heard. The statute of limitations could also start from the time you were diagnosed with injuries caused by your accident (if you discovered your injury at a later time.)

If the statute of limitations expires before you file your claim, Louisiana courts will not hear your case. You will NOT be able to proceed with your case or receive compensation for your losses.

Contributory Negligence

Contributory negligence laws can also be very important in a New Orleans car accident claim. This law is meant to help those who are partly at-fault in their accident.

Many injured victims don’t pursue their case because they don’t think they’ll be qualified to receive money since they partially caused the accident. However, the comparative negligence law clearly states that you can still receive payment for your losses, but the amount you win will be decreased based on your percentage of fault in the accident. For instance, if you were granted $100,000, but you were found 10% liable for the accident, you will come away with $90,000.

Your New Orleans personal injury lawyer will be knowledgeable in each of these areas and advise you based on your case’s facts.

Injuries Can Happen in Many Ways

There are various types of personal injury claims that can result from different accidents. The cases that result from each accident can vary considerably with different legal issues depending on many factors. It’s necessary to have a law firm on your side that knows how to handle your particular claim.

Our team handles many types of injury claims, including:

PERSONAL INJURY

Personal injuries can include spinal injuries, brain injuries, permanent disabilities, and more. Many different types of accidents can cause these injuries, such as slip-and-fall accidents or car wrecks. A New Orleans personal injury lawyer can fight for the compensation you deserve.

CAR ACCIDENTS

Car accidents often cause serious injuries in New Orleans. Suppose you know someone else is responsible for your collision. In that case, you can hold them accountable by obtaining a lawyer, suing them, and using evidence to prove their negligence.

MARITIME ACCIDENTS/ WORKERS COMPENSATION

Maritime can be one of the most dangerous careers in the world. Accidents frequently happen at sea and can leave you with life-changing injuries. Maritime workers may be covered under the Jones Act or Long Shore Act in Louisiana.

TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Trucks can cause accidents if they aren’t properly maintained or if a truck driver is negligent. When semi-trucks wreck, the potential for injury is extremely high. Knowing who to hold accountable for your damages is important to your case.

BICYCLE ACCIDENTS 

Crosswalks, bike lanes, and other unregulated areas become dangerous when it comes to negligent drivers. You can sue the liable party who injured you while riding a bike in New Orleans, and you may be able to win a settlement for the losses you experience.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

Motorcyclists often go unnoticed and end up with life-altering injuries after an accident. If someone hits you or a loved one while riding a motorcycle, you deserve to get justice. A New Orleans injury attorney can help with your case.

WRONGFUL DEATH

It is never easy losing a loved one, especially when negligence is involved. Suppose your family member died in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. In that case, you could file a wrongful death claim to obtain a settlement on their behalf.

More Questions About Personal Injury Cases in New Orleans

The process of filing a lawsuit after a New Orleans car accident can seem overwhelming. Below we have listed the answers to some of the most important personal injury questions. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here, please feel free to contact us to speak with a seasoned personal injury attorney. 1-800-899-7102

How long do I have to file an accident claim in Louisiana?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Louisiana is one year. You have one year from the date your injury or accident occurred to file a claim with the courts. It’s necessary to contact a New Orleans personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you wish to recover money from the accident.

How will comparative negligence law affect my New Orleans accident claim?

The comparative negligence law in Louisiana allows anyone involved in an accident to recover money for damages and injuries they’ve suffered, regardless of whether they shared fault in the accident. The court will deduct each party’s percentage of responsibility from its total settlement. Your accident attorney in New Orleans can give you information on how this law may relate to your accident claim.

What is the maximum settlement amount I can get from my New Orleans injury case?

The state of Louisiana does not regulate the amount you can receive in an injury case unless it involves medical malpractice. It’s necessary to determine all of your losses to recover the full amount you’re owed.

What should I do if I can’t afford a lawyer in New Orleans?

At our law firm, you don’t need to worry about not having enough money to hire a lawyer. We work with injury victims based on a contingency fee. This means that you will never have to pay anything to us upfront. You will only be obligated to pay our fee if we win your claim. The fee can be deducted from your settlement so that you don’t have to worry about paying us back later.

Can I make a claim for my injured child in New Orleans?

Yes, as a parent, you can file a claim for your injured child. Just because your child is underage and therefore unable to pursue a civil suit on their own doesn’t mean that they aren’t allowed to recover damages. You can also represent your injured child in court to recover the settlement that is deserved.

Do I need to go to court to resolve my case?

We can’t determine whether going to court is needed until your case starts. You should prepare for the chance of going to court; however, we hope to avoid this by successfully negotiating with the insurance company. If the defendant refuses to offer you the amount you deserve, we’re ready to fight in court for what you’re owed.

What is a contingency fee?

A contingency fee is a fee arrangement that makes it, so you don’t have to pay upfront for legal assistance. Our lawyer fees are contingent upon us winning your case. We’ll explain the contingency fee before proceeding with your case. Once we successfully settle your case, you’ll pay us the agreed-upon fee.
