WHAT IS PERSONAL INJURY?

Personal injuries are any injury caused by the negligence of another.

Negligence means that someone has failed to act as any reasonable person. Preventable or not, personal injury accidents are caused by carelessness. That’s why victims of negligence can seek funds to cover their pain, suffering, and medical expenses.

WHAT CAN I BE COMPENSATED FOR?

There are several things you can receive compensation for after an accident.

It depends on the details surrounding your injury but, in general, victims receive compensation for:

  • Lost Wages
  • Disability
  • Loss of Future Earning Abilities
  • Emotional Distress
  • Disfigurement/Mutilation
  • Therapy Costs
  • Medical Treatment
  • Funeral Costs
  • Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, insurance companies only look out for their best interests. They’ll lowball you or deny compensation altogether. As Lake Charles personal injury attorneys, it is our job to prevent this from happening. Some cases are settled out of court, but many times taking legal action is the only way to get the money you deserve.

 

HOW DO I CHOOSE AN ATTORNEY?

There are hundreds of personal injury lawyers who could represent your case. Having so many options can make picking an attorney daunting, so consider the following tips when starting your search:

  • If you’ve worked with a lawyer that doesn’t practice injury law, ask them for a referral. Family and friends can be great referral sources as well.
  • Choose an attorney that is rated on Avvo.com. This website helps you find local lawyers and gives you access to reviews from previous clients and legal peers.
  • The Louisiana State Bar Association provides multiple resources and tools to help you find a local attorney.
  • Consult with several attorneys and research their backgrounds, specialties, and successfully settled cases.

Once you’ve narrowed your options, think about how comfortable you are with those attorneys. Having a good relationship with your lawyer can be crucial to a successful outcome.
