Personal Injury Lawyer Louisiana
In Louisiana, Revised Statute Art. 2315 (A) states, “Every act whatever of man that causes damage to another obliges him by whose fault it happened to repair it.” This statute clearly specifies the responsibilities of the party responsible for the injuries sustained because of another person’s actions or behavior.
Here at the Labourdette Law Firm, we handle a variety of personal injury claims that arise from another party’s negligence. Negligence can be defined as carelessness, lack of proper care and attention or failure to take proper care in doing something. We know that these accidents are not your fault. Some of the cases that we have represented clients in regarding personal injury include automobile wrecks, slip-and-falls, foreign objects in food, food poisoning, cuts from glass, injury from falling objects in stores, and injury due to a faulty product.
While these are all common types of cases, there are still many damaging and devastating accidents that occur where clients were unaware that they could even pursue a personal injury claim. That is why at Labourdette we recommend anyone who has been injured in the Slidell, Northshore or greater New Orleans area contact our office today! We offer free consultations, and we are always available to you! We know how stressful and difficult it is to recover from an injury without the additional complications of being unprepared for the legal battles ahead. We are dedicated to providing you with the legal aid you need and the compensation you might be entitled to. The lawyers at Labourdette Law Firm will protect you and your rights while pursuing everything you deserve.
Do I need an attorney?
Do not get tricked into accepting a quick settlement from an insurance company without first knowing all of your options. You should not be surprised if the responsible party’s insurance company contacts you attempting to make a speedy cash settlement to compensate you for your injuries or losses. These companies are assuming that you will take their offer and give up the rights to hold them to any further liability. Oftentimes, these settlements are offered very quickly after an accident before you know the full extent of injuries and/or damages and before you have a full understanding of the expenses associated with them. However, if you make the decision to have an experienced and respected representation from Labourdette, we can work with you and the insurance company to find a fair solution. Sometimes we are able to negotiate with them to agree upon an acceptable and adequate settlement. But if a settlement cannot be agreed upon, we will be ready to take your case to trial. We will get you the compensation you deserve!
