Personal Injury Cases
The most common types of personal injury cases are discussed below.
Whether you were walking across the street or in a motor vehicle when you were struck by another vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses. Your experienced Plaquemine personal injury lawyer can do the following:
- Evaluate your case to determine who is responsible for the accident;
- Gather evidence associated with your injuries;
- Negotiate or litigate for the compensation you deserve; and
- Get the insurance company to pay for your claim.
If you sustained injuries from a fall after you slipped on liquid or tripped on an obstruction, you could have a slip/trip and fall action. A Plaquemine personal injury lawyer can review your claim to determine whether you meet one of the two requirements:
- The property owner knew about the hazard but did not remedy the situation or provide adequate warning, or
- The property owner claims he was not aware of the hazard, but a reasonable person in the same situation would have known about it.
Louisiana law holds dog owners strictly liable for your injuries that resulted from the dog’s bite, so long as you did not provoke the dog.
If you suffered injury after receiving negligent medical treatment of your illness or injury, you may have a viable medical malpractice claim.
Employers are obligated to provide their employees with a safe work environment. If you were injured while working, you most likely would file a Worker’s Compensation claim with your employer to quickly obtain compensation for your injuries. In certain circumstances, you may be permitted to file a personal injury claim rather than a Worker’s Compensation claim.
Wrongful Death & Severe Personal Injuries
While most personal injury claims may be stressful, wrongful death and severe personal injury claims are the most catastrophic and traumatic.
If your loved one’s death occurred due to the negligence or gross negligence of another, you may file a wrongful death claim to recover medical and funeral expenses, loss of income, loss of consortium and society, and other damages.
Severe Personal Injury
Most personal injury claims involve bruises, broken or fractured bones, lacerations, sprains, or strains. Severe personal injury claims are considerably more serious and complex. They often permanent, disabling or debilitating injuries, such as traumatic brain injury, burns, amputated limb, or spinal injury.
