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.

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.
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.
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.
