The Personal Injury Litigation Process in Louisiana

In the state of Louisiana, you are subject to the laws and statutes written by the State Legislature. You generally have one year from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. You and your attorney will follow these steps when seeking compensation.

Seek Medical Care Immediately

While you may fear that you cannot afford medical care, your life often depends on it. Moreover, receiving medical attention from the emergency room staff or your doctor creates a paper trail documenting your suffering.

Who Caused Your Injuries?

Determining fault is critical when you plan to seek damages. Share as much information as you can with your attorney. They will use that evidence to uncover the liable party. 

How Much Is Your Claim Worth?

Your lawsuit has a specific value your attorney calculates before filing. Your economic and non-economic damages factor into this number. Your attorney might even seek punitive damages from the defendant where applicable. 

Seek Compensation Via Settlement or Trial

Your attorney will represent you with the insurance company during negotiations. If your attorney can reach a favorable settlement, you can settle and move forward. If not, your lawyer can argue your case at trial.

Personal Injury Claims We Handle

Personal injury claims come in all shapes and sizes. Each case must be handled with care, ensuring we apply the appropriate laws, rules, or statutes to your claim. If you’re not sure how your case should be litigated, reach out to our legal team.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a New Orleans personal injury lawyer cost?

At Manard Law, LLC, you pay nothing upfront. You pay when you receive a settlement or a judgment, and you don’t pay for your accident if you do not receive a settlement or judgment.

Is it worth hiring a personal injury lawyer?

It is worth it to hire a personal injury lawyer who understands your legal rights, knows how to recover compensation for your injuries, and is a skilled negotiator. The court system strongly discourages accident victims from representing themselves.

What is a typical personal injury settlement?

Personal injury settlements vary depending on the severity of your injuries, your related losses, lost income, and other factors. Your lawyer cannot guarantee any sum of money when filing suit on your behalf, but they can assess the damage you suffered and determine what your accident claim is worth.

How do I choose an attorney?

Choose an attorney who has reviewed your case and explained that they can help you. If you feel comfortable, you can proceed with their representation. Also, remember that you can change representation at any time.

How is pain and suffering valued?

Pain and suffering is often valued based on the “per diem” rate, meaning that your lawyer determines how long you have suffered and how much you should be paid per day for said suffering. If you suffered for 30 days and your lawyer determined your suffering was worth $1000 per day, they would petition for $30,000 in damages.
