Louisiana Personal Injury Attorneys

The need for personal injury claims is often not apparent until an accident occurs. Personal injury claims serve an important purpose for victims of horrific accidents throughout Louisiana. An extreme accident can have dire financial repercussions on the victim and their family, and it is often only through these claims that the victim can be made somewhat “whole” again.

The immediate aftermath of an accident can seem overwhelming and chaotic, as victims are rushed to the hospital and face ongoing treatment and surgeries. During this time immediately after an accident, victims have the legal right to pursue a claim for the ongoing damages. In situations involving medical malpractice, a victim will still have the legal right to pursue a claim based on the omission or actions of the medical professional which led to the injury.

The recovery for each personal injury claim hinges on the ability to prove the defendant’s negligence. Negligence is established in Louisiana through a four-part test:

  • Duty of care;
  • Breach of the duty of care;
  • The breach led to the victim’s injuries; and
  • The victim’s injuries led to actual damages.

Compassionate Personal Injury lawyers in Louisiana

A Louisiana court will carefully consider these factors in determining whether a person’s behavior rose to the level of negligence, often considering the “reasonable person” standard. The court will ask thequestion as to whether a similarly-situated person would react or behave in the same manner. The amount of recovery stemming from a personal injury claim is an important part to consider when debating whether to bring a claim. A personal injury claim may include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship

The attorneys of Jones & Hill will be able to assist you in determining the total amount of compensation which you may be entitled to receive. We will take into consideration all factors of your claim, your financial burden, and the general damages stemming from your injury. It is important to keep in mind the difference between actual and general damages. Actual damages are those damages include the loss of income or ongoing medical expenses. General damages include emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Our job is to make sure our clients and their families receive enough justice to give them 100% compensation.

Shortly after an accident, the responsible party’s insurance company may attempt to contact you to coerce a settlement. It is important to refrain from signing any documentation prior to consulting with us. An insurance company settlement could impact your ability to bring a claim in the future. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, and they often do not consider ongoing expenses such as future earnings or the expense of rehabilitative care.

The Louisiana statute of limitations is only one year, which means that all victims of a personal injury action must bring a claim within one year from the date of the injury. This forces victims to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident.

The attorneys of Jones & Hill have years of experience in handling personal injury claims.

Our Oakdale and Oberlin offices are available for your immediate personal injury claims. As a victim of an accident, you have the legal right to bring a claim to recover your ongoing expenses and damages suffered as a result of your accident. We understand the personal devastation an accident can cause on your family, your future, and your financial stability. Contact our offices today for your initial free consultation.
