New Orleans Injury

When you have been hurt or lost a loved one in an accident, contacting a New Orleans injury law firm is a smart choice. The law in Louisiana give injured victims certain legal rights if someone was responsible for causing them harm. Lavis Law Firm can help you understand your rights and use the legal system to obtain compensation for your losses after an accident.

An injury can cause significant financial hardship. Medical bills will begin to accumulate and you may be forced to take time off from work to recover. In some cases you may not be able to return to your job, and if you lost a family member, you are also losing an income. As a victim, you deserve to be made “made whole” by receiving full compensation for all economic and non-financial losses after an injury. It is your attorney’s job to help you to pursue your claim to secure full and fair compensation.

How a New Orleans Injury Law Firm Can Help You

When you have suffered an injury because of another person’s negligence, it is up to you to make a claim for damages if you want to recover compensation.

You can file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and take your case to court in order to obtain monetary damages. You can also negotiate with the defendant or, in most cases, with the insurance company that represents the person or entity who is responsible for your injuries. The insurer may offer an out-of-court settlement that provides you compensation without the need for a trial.

Whether your case goes to court or is resolved through settlement, it is up to you to prove that you are entitled to money for your losses. To make a successful personal injury or wrongful death claim, you will need to show:

  • The defendant had an obligation to you. For example, product manufacturers have a legal obligation to release only safe products and avoid releasing items onto the marketplace that are defective and cause harm.

  • The defendant failed to live up to the obligation. You can prove this failure by showing that the defendant acted in a negligent or unreasonably careless manner. For example, a driver who violated a safety rule by exceeding the speed limit may be found negligent.

  • That the negligence or failure was the direct cause of harm to you. You will need to show that the defendant’s negligence caused your injuries and losses in order to receive compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress or wrongful death.

A New Orleans injury law firm can compile the evidence you need to prove your claim and present the information in a way that convinces an insurer or jury to compensate you fully for losses.
