Personal Injuries in Covington and Louisiana

How do I figure out who is at fault?

Fault is determined in Louisiana by negligence. Your attorney may be able to prove fault if the other party owed you a duty of care, failed to fulfill that duty, and such failure caused your injury from which you suffered damages.

What if I think my accident was partially my fault?

It is incredibly important to tell your lawyer if you think that. Louisiana follows a doctrine of pure comparative negligence, which means that your damages are reduced by the percentage amount to which fault can be attributed to you.

Can I sue more than one person for negligence?

If more than one person has been negligent toward you, each person may be found liable to you for the amount of damages proportionate to their responsibility to you.

What is my personal injury worth?

The person who injured you is responsible for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earning ability
  • Permanent disability
  • Emotional distress
  • Other costs related to the injury

 

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

In Louisiana, you have one year to file a personal injury claim.
