Common Personal Injury Misconceptions

Misconceptions we often hear about personal injury cases include:

  • People with insurance don’t need to bother with a personal injury claim. False. Even if you have insurance, your insurance policy may not be enough to cover your expenses. You may also experience insurance bad faith which occurs when an insurance company wrongly denies paying you the coverage owed.
  • Personal injury cases take a very long time to settle. Not necessarily. If you file your claim promptly after your accident and the defendant’s insurance company agrees to pay a settlement during negotiations, your personal injury case can settle quickly. Only cases that need to go to trial tend to get drawn out, but most personal injury lawsuits are settled outside of court.
  • People who file personal injury claims are litigious. Not necessarily. There is a stigma against people who sue, but the unfortunate reality is that sometimes lawsuits are necessary.

If you have been hurt due to the actions of someone else and your or the at-fault party’s insurance company isn’t covering your damages for whatever reason, a personal injury claim is your best shot at getting the compensation you deserve.

Practice Areas

Personal injury encompasses many practice areas—the overall similarity in cases is that the plaintiff (or victim) was hurt by the actions (or lack of action) of the defendant (the person or company who caused the injury). This means that if you were hurt due to the negligence or carelessness of an individual or entity, you are entitled to sue for damages. Below are our main personal injury practice areas.

18-Wheeler Accidents

When you are involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler you may be faced with severe or catastrophic injuries. We have the experience, dedication, and knowledge to properly preserve evidence and effectively handle your 18-wheeler accident case.

Auto Accidents

Every car accident is different, although a wreck is almost always a traumatic experience. Our office provides personal attention and dedication to your case in an effort to make you whole again. We will fight to get you fully compensated for damages resulting from auto accidents.

Serious Back Injury & Neck Injuries

Back and neck injuries are common effects of personal injury accidents—both are also very serious. If you have a neck or back injury you may be facing a life of hardship through continued physical therapy and medical treatment. We can help you secure the money you need now and for the long term.

Wrongful Death

The family members or the estate of a person who was killed due to recklessness or negligence can sue the liable party in civil court. These damages aren’t to put a value on human life lost. Rather, damages family members can sue for are the loss of wages and benefits that were to be earned had the victim lived, and emotional pain and suffering as a consequence of the loss.

Typical Injuries That Result from Accidents & Negligence

In a personal injury case, the severity of one’s injuries varies greatly depending on the incident, but typically they include head and neck injuries, joint issues, and pain and suffering—both physical and mental.

Common injuries in personal injury cases include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Bruises and cuts

Head and neck injuries encompass everything from whiplash to paralysis, concussion to coma. Even if you were involved in a minor accident, it’s important to get checked out by a medical professional, as whiplash and concussions can be particularly dangerous if left untreated, but often have no initial symptoms.

Pain and suffering resulting from an accident or negligent act can include emotional and mental anguish. If your accident left you unable to enjoy activities with your family, makes it physically impossible for you to continue in a career you found fulfilling, or caused you to suffer from depression or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), then you should talk to your personal injury attorney about these non-economic damages.

With offices in both New Orleans and Ruston, we proudly extend our services to individuals throughout the state of Louisiana.

Our goal is to maximize compensation awards for our clients so that they don’t experience any financial strain as a result of their injuries. As our client, you can rest assured in knowing that we will protect your rights to fair compensation.

What Makes An Excellent Personal Injury Attorney

A New Orleans personal injury lawyer at a small firm and with a deep connection to the area will treat you with the compassion and respect you deserve. The risk of choosing an attorney at a large firm is that the client becomes a case number. At those firms, when clients call in to check on the status of their case or to submit updated documents, you will speak to a legal aid rather than your own attorney. We have worked closely with hundreds of scared, confused, and frustrated clients who are seeking to sue for lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical treatment. We take pride in helping people in need get justice and move on with their lives. This is why we will always take the time to listen to you.
