Why do I need a personal Injury attorney?

It has been shown that dealing with insurance companies on your own is not in your best interest. Insurance companies are in the business of making money.

A large percentage of their profits come from denying claims, no matter how legitimate the claim may be. Insurance adjusters are professionals who dedicate their lives to defending insurance companies, not you.

If you don’t have an attorney advocating for your rights, the insurance company will assume that you don’t know what your rights are, and you will be taken advantage of.

An experienced personal injury attorney is your insurance against being over looked by the insurance company or being cheated out of what you deserve.

Experience Level

You should always opt for the individual with the most experience in this particular area of law, because it is his or her ability to gather information quickly that will set them apart from the rest.

Make sure your Baton Rouge personal injury attorney has at least three years of experience, because a generalist will likely not be able to handle your case.

Insurance Coverage

You need a personal injury attorney who has the resources to take on a case that exceeds the limits of his or her insurance coverage. This way you don’t end up footing the bill for an accident that was clearly someone else’s fault.

Negotiate with your attorney to find out what insurance they carry and what limits there are on that policy. You also want to find out whether or not the policy is primary or if it has excess coverage so you know who will be footing the bill in the event of a judgment against you.

Fees

Personal injury lawyers can accept either a contingency fee or an hourly rate, but there are pros and cons to each. The advantage of hiring a personal injury lawyer on a contingent basis is that you won’t have to pay them if they lose your case. If they win though, then their fees are normally one-third of the final judgment so make sure you know what this amount is before you hire them.

If the personal injury attorney takes an hourly fee, make sure you know how much he or she expects it to cost and what kind of money is behind that. This way you can decide if their retainer agreement makes sense for your budget, or if it might be better to look elsewhere.

Baton Rouge Personal Injury FAQ's

In the state of Louisiana and in the city of Baton Rouge, people work hard and take pride in their community. If you are injured on the job you have a right to compensation for your injuries according to Louisiana state law. Here are some frequently asked questions or FAQ’s based on the clients we have represented in personal injury law. 

A personal injury is an injury to your body, mind or emotions. It can be physical, psychological or both.

Personal injuries are quite common. Every year, millions of people are injured in the United States alone. Many of these injuries could have been prevented if the individual had been more careful.

Workers' compensation covers many different types of injuries and illnesses, including work-related car accidents, injuries from falls, burns, and exposure to hazardous materials. Almost any injury or illness that is caused by work can be covered.

If you are injured, you should seek medical attention right away. You should also contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your legal options.

There are many different types of personal injury cases. Some of the most common include car accidents, slip and falls, product liability cases, and medical malpractice cases.

It depends on the state where you live. In some states, you can still file a lawsuit if you were partially at fault for the accident. In other states, you are not allowed to file a lawsuit if you were partially at fault.

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases varies from state to state. In most states, the statute of limitations is two or three years.

Louisiana has two different statutes of limitations, one related to written contracts and another dealing with oral agreements. For the majority of personal injury cases, the deadline is usually one or two years from the date of your injury.

A contingency fee is a fee that is paid to the lawyer only if the lawyer wins the case. Contingency fees are usually a percentage of the total amount of money that is recovered in the lawsuit.

If you are contacted by a personal injury lawyer, you should consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options. It is important to remember that you are under no obligation to hire the lawyer. You should also never sign any documents without first consulting with an attorney.

A third party is a person or company that is not involved in the accident. A third party can be held liable for your injuries if they are responsible for the accident.

A tort is a civil wrong that results in injury to another person. Torts can be intentional or unintentional.

Negligence is the failure to exercise reasonable care. Negligence can occur when a person fails to act reasonably or when they act recklessly.

A settlement is an agreement between the parties that resolves a lawsuit. The parties typically agree to settle a lawsuit because it is cheaper and faster than going to trial.

It depends on the state where you live. In some states, you will have to go to court if you file a personal injury lawsuit. In other states, the case may be resolved without going to court.

This differs from the statute of limitations in that it starts on the date when your product was created, not when you were injured. The deadline usually expires after 10 years .

The amount of money that you will get if you win your personal injury lawsuit varies from state to state. In most states, the damages are calculated based on the amount of money that you have lost as a result of the accident. This can include your medical expenses, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering.

Yes, but your compensation will be reduced according to the percentage you were at fault. For example, if you are 20% responsible for the accident then your compensation will be reduced by that same percentage as well.

A SLAPP suit is when someone tries to silence another person or group in regards to a public interest. The defendants are typically people who speak out or publicly participate in matters of public concern, communicate with the government or even file a lawsuit on behalf of the government.
