Meet our Baton Rouge personal injury attorneys.
If you were injured by a commercial truck driven by a careless tractor-trailer driver, you may find yourself battling large trucking businesses and their stingy insurance companies to recover financial compensation for your damages.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a Baton Rouge trucking accident due to no fault of your own, you have the right to know your legal options.
Among the many types of motor vehicle crashes, motorcycle collisions are the most dangerous. Motorcycle riders are fully exposed in an accident. They are not protected by safety features like seatbelts or airbags.
Most motorcycle traffic collisions result in injury or death to the rider. Motorcycle crashes usually involve a collision between the rider’s motorcycle and another vehicle.
When we purchase any product from a store or online retailer, we trust that it will work properly, safely, and as intended. Unfortunately, sometimes products turn out to be dangerous and leave us with life-changing injuries.
In Louisiana, the law holds manufacturers and retailers of defective or unreasonably dangerous products responsible for the harm that they cause.
If you suffer a slip and fall or trip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you may wonder about your legal rights and options. Following a slip and fall accident or a trip and fall accident, you may have a premises liability claim in Baton Rouge against the owner or occupier of the property.
The loss of a family member is a heartbreaking experience. When a relative’s death occurs due to someone else’s negligence or intentional acts, it can only increase the pain of your loss and leave you with feelings of anger or bitterness at those responsible. It can also leave the surviving family with serious financial burdens.
In these tragic circumstances, your family may be entitled to assert a wrongful death claim in Baton Rouge.
If you have a claim for compensation after suffering a personal injury, it is important to understand the personal injury claim process. Many people may not realize that most personal injury claims never go to trial or even see the inside of a courtroom.
Instead, the first step in the process of a personal injury lawsuit is to make a claim with the at-fault party or parties or their insurers to try and reach a settlement that pays you fair and full compensation. If the other party accepts fault for your injuries and your damages can be determined with certainty, it may be possible to reach a prompt settlement. However, if the at-fault party disputes liability or if there is some dispute over your damages, such as ongoing medical treatment or long-term care requirements, it may take longer to reach a settlement.
When it is not possible to reach an acceptable settlement, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit in court. This process officially begins when the injured party (the plaintiff), through their lawyer, files a complaint. The complaint and a summons must be served on the party (or parties) responsible for your injuries (the defendant), as well as submitted to the court.
The defendant or defendants then have an opportunity to respond to your complaint, either by seeking to dismiss the case on technical grounds or by filing an answer disputing the substance of your claims. If the defendant doesn’t respond to your complaint by the deadline, you may be able to obtain a default judgment.
Once your personal injury claim and the defendant’s answer have been filed in the courthouse, the personal injury attorney engages in a process known as discovery. During discovery, the parties exchange information and documents and take deposition testimony from relevant witnesses. This gives all parties a fuller picture of the evidence that is likely to be presented at trial. During or after discovery, either side may petition the court for a judgment on the premise the evidence is so one-sided that the case can be resolved without continuing the process any further.
If the case is not resolved by a motion for judgment or by a settlement between the parties, the case will move to trial. After each side has the opportunity to present evidence and engage in cross-examination, the judge or jury or judge renders a judgment or verdict. If it goes in your favor, you will be able to legally enforce that judgment against the defendant should they, for some reason, fail to pay what the court orders.
It is an unexpected and unfortunate fact of life that accidents happen. In many accidents, the people involved in the accident suffer personal injuries – harm to the body, mind, and emotions.
When these injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence, reckless or intentional misconduct, you could be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim either in or out of court.
