Baton Rouge Personal Injury Lawyer

Home /  Baton Rouge Personal Injury Lawyer

A personal injury is painful, but it is made even more frustrating when it happens because another party was careless or reckless. When this happens, they can be held liable for the financial and emotional damages caused by the accident. The process of holding the at-fault party accountable is much easier with the help of a dedicated Baton Rouge personal injury lawyer.

Personal injuries take many forms. A car accident is the most common type, but personal injuries also happen in the workplace, on public and private premises, and at home from defective products. Depending on the injury you suffered, you could have significant medical costs and be missing weeks to months of work. These losses, when they are not your fault, can be recovered in a civil personal injury claim.

Working with an experienced and qualified attorney can give your claim a greater chance of success and improve the settlement value you obtain. You need an attorney with experience and dedication to you and your needs.

What is a Personal Injury?

The term “personal injury” can be a misnomer because it does not refer to an injury. Instead, personal injury is a field of law that helps victims recover after “torts,” or acts or omissions that give rise to injury or harm to another. Courts typically impose liability for torts using negligence. Negligence occurs when an individual or group does not exercise the level of expected care for your well-being.

Someone is negligent toward you if they:

  • Owe you a duty of care
  • Breach that duty
  • Cause your injury as a result
  • Cause you damages that are legally recognized.

Another party may also be liable for your damages if they breached their duty of care by behaving recklessly or acting with intentional misconduct. When a party is at fault, they must pay for your losses. In some cases, multiple parties are at fault. Generally, you will have to show your injury via medical records and use the legal theory of proximate cause to show that your injury would not have happened if the defendant had been more careful.

When to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Typically when deciding how soon after an accident you should seek out the services of a personal injury lawyer, a good rule of thumb is: the sooner the better. Aside from making sure your accident is still within the statute of limitations, you also want to make sure you have a lawyer by your side to provide you with counsel throughout the entirety of the process.

Now, you may be wondering if you even need a personal injury lawyer after you were injured in an accident. This is likely doubly true if the other party were the ones who caused the accident which resulted in you being injured. Unfortunately things usually aren’t so cut and dry. You will likely have to deal with an insurance company to get the compensation you deserve. That insurance company will undoubtedly have experts on their side to save them as much money as possible. A lawyer on your side will look out for your best interests and know what the fair compensation you deserve is.

Types of Personal Injuries and Potential Damages

The kinds of injuries that justify personal injury claims include broken bones, concussions, burns, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, and more. One of the most critical aspects of your case will be determining how these injuries affect you financially.

In other words, we can help you figure out exactly how much you have paid for your accident and how much your injury will likely cost you. We calculate this by examining your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage and repair costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Other potential expenses

Whether you have already paid your medical expenses or need to secure future medical care, these are the types of damages that our attorneys at Day Law Group can help you recover. When another party is proven at fault for your accident, they are liable for all the costs you suffered as a result. Our team fights hard to help ensure the insurance company or at-fault party compensates you for your losses.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

At Day Law Group, personal injury is what we do. Our experienced legal team handles everything from automobile accidents to wrongful death claims. Here are just a few of the types of personal injury claims we handle:

  • Automobile Accidents: After a car accident, you could file for a car insurance claim and a personal injury civil claim.
  • Truck Accidents: Truck accidents are significantly more complicated than other motor vehicle accidents. They can result in devastating and fatal injuries.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists are much more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries when involved in motor vehicle crashes.
  • Maritime/Jones Act: If you are a maritime and/or offshore worker, you may be eligible for additional compensation for a worksite injury under the Jones Act.
  • Mesothelioma Cases: Mesothelioma is most frequently caused by inhalation and ingestion of asbestos over a long period of time. Employees in shipyards, construction, demolition, and mining are at the highest risk for long-term asbestos exposure. They also risk developing mesothelioma cancer as a result.
  • Wrongful Death Cases: When someone dies due to the fault of another party, or is injured and then later dies from their injuries, their loved ones can file for a wrongful death claim. This could recover damages such as loss of financial support, medical costs after the accident, burial costs, and funeral costs.
  • Premises Liability: If a public or private property owner fails to address a known hazard in a reasonable period of time, you can file a claim for any injury you sustain from these hazards.
  • Defective Drugs: If you are injured due to a defective drug, the distributor or manufacturer can be held strictly liable for their endangerment of consumers.
  • Workers’ Compensation Cases: When you are injured on the job, you can recover a portion of lost wages and the cost of medical bills through a workers’ compensation claim. These claims do not require you to prove negligence or fault to receive compensation.
