Personal Injury

PI is the largest category of civil lawsuits.

Personal injury (PI) law is a form of civil litigation that occurs when one private party sues another because of negligence. Through a PI lawsuit, the injured person can be awarded and collect damages, which will help cover medical bills or lost wages resulting from that injury. 

Automobile accidents represent over half of the personal injury cases annually, including collisions between two drivers or incidents where a driver hits a pedestrian or biker.

WHAT IS NEGLIGENCE

For the plaintiff to win a personal injury case, the accident must usually be caused by the defendant’s negligence. Negligence means that someone failed to take the precautions that a reasonable person would take in that situation. In car accidents, this can handle many forms. Some common examples include texting while driving, disobeying traffic laws, or drunk driving. Four main elements help prove negligence; duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages.

Here are some examples of personal injuries caused by negligence:

Car Accidents

Did you know Louisiana's annual collisions and fatal crashes are much higher than the national average? If you were injured while ridesharing or rear-ended by a distracted driver, you might be entitled to more compensation than your insurance providers offer. 

Bicycle Accidents

Whether you have experienced a personal injury or lost a loved one in a bicycle wreck, we can help you secure recovery and Justice.

Truck Accidents

Large or commercial vehicles, including 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers, adhere to stringent safety regulations. When truck drivers fail to follow the rules of the road, they put other drivers at significant risk.

Pedestrian Accidents

Careless drivers frequently injure or kill pedestrians despite having the right of way. Just a second of inattention can result in years of relearning to walk in physical therapy. If you or a loved one has been hit by a car, you can seek compensation for specific actions the driver failed to take.
