  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Whether you’ve been involved in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, our attorneys can help you seek compensation for your injuries and other losses.
  • Medical malpractice cases: Being harmed due to the negligence of a medical professional, such as a doctor or nurse, may give you grounds for a medical malpractice case.
  • Slip and falls: If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property due to unsafe conditions, you may be able to pursue a slip and fall case.
  • Work Injuries: Those who are injured on the job are likely eligible for workers’ compensation benefits or a personal injury lawsuit, depending on the circumstances of your accident.
  • Wrongful death: You may be able to pursue a wrongful death case if you lost a loved one due to another person’s carelessness.

What Is Your Case Worth?

Although the only way to find out the true value of your claim is with a cost-free evaluation and consultation, you can get a ballpark idea of what a personal injury settlement may include using the information provided below.

  • Medical Expenses:  One of the primary types of damages that can be recovered in a personal injury claim is medical expenses. The cost of surgery, hospital bills, rehabilitation, and other related expenses may be accounted for in your settlement.
  • Lost Wages: If you are unable to work as a result of your accident, you could be entitled to recover lost wages as part of your personal injury claim. This includes wages you would have earned had you not been injured, as well as any future lost income you may experience as a result of your injury.
  • Pain and Suffering: Another type of loss that can be recovered in a personal injury claim is pain and suffering. This includes physical pain, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. These damages are intended to compensate you for the non-economic impact of your injury.
  • Punitive Damages: Though less common, a court may award punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages. Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant for their wrongful conduct and to deter others from engaging in similar behavior in the future. These damages are typically reserved for cases in which the defendant’s behavior was particularly egregious.

What Comes Next?

The process begins with a 100% free review of your case. This will allow us to go over the finer details of your case and help you determine what options are available and best for you.

If you have a valid injury claim, we will take over from there! Any evidence that will prove the extent of your injuries and the at-fault party’s liability will be collected. This includes medical bills and reports, eyewitness statements, photographs and videos, expert testimony, and more.

Once we’ve compiled the evidence and built a strong case on your behalf, we will issue our demand letter and begin negotiating your claim. You’ll never have to talk to the insurance adjusters when you work with us because we handle all calls during the negotiation process.

In the end, you’ll be offered a choice: either accept the settlement offer or reject it. Your attorney will help by offering their expert advice, but the final decision will be in your hands.

If you accept their offer, we will make sure you get your money on time and as promised.

Frequently Asked Questions

For most personal injury cases in Louisiana, the injured person has one year from the date of the accident to file their claim and begin the process of recovering compensation. Failure to file by that deadline would likely result in losing the chance to pursue any damages at all.

When you’ve been injured, it’s imperative that you contact us immediately. The sooner we get to work, the better your chances are of receiving your maximum compensation before it’s too late.

We strongly advise against speaking with the insurance adjuster, whether it be your own or the at-fault party’s, without legal representation. At the very least, never agree to anything without a free consultation from our office.

If you sign the wrong document without realizing it, you could be accepting much less than your claim is worth and lose your right to seek full compensation. In the worst cases, you could even be accidentally waiving your right to seek any damages at all!

Our attorneys never charge legal fees upfront to take on a client, and our cost-free consultations allow us to answer your questions and provide sound, informed legal advice for your situation.

The financial burden of your injuries should never hold you back from the justice you deserve.

Though legal jargon can quickly become confusing, proving liability actually comes down to demonstrating three simple points:

1. The other party owed you a duty of care, or the reasonable amount of responsibility that a person in their position would owe to a person in your position.

For example, in a car accident case, this would be simple because all drivers owe it to other motorists to be safe, drive the speed limit, follow traffic laws, etc. However, in a medical malpractice case, proving the duty of care may become more complex and require expert testimony to prove the level of care the healthcare provider should have given.

2. Next, it must be shown that the duty of care was breached. In other words, the other party was negligent and did not uphold that basic responsibility.

This could take the form of distracted or impaired driving leading to a collision, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose resulting in medical malpractice, or a fall caused by failure to maintain a hazard-free property.

3. Finally, you have to demonstrate that the negligence of the at-fault party was directly responsible for your injuries.

Unfortunately, the liable party and their insurance adjusters will likely try to downplay their involvement and claim it was your fault.

Don’t worry about striking out with the insurance companies on your own — get Gauthier Amedee on your side!

Always be cautious when dealing with insurance companies after being injured in an accident. While insurance adjusters may seem friendly and helpful, their main goal is to minimize their own financial responsibility.

Before signing any documents from an insurance company, consult with the expert injury attorneys at Gauthier Amedee who can review the documents and advise you on your rights and options.

While it’s technically possible to file a bodily injury lawsuit without an attorney, it’s not recommended.

Personal injury law can be complex, and insurance companies have teams of attorneys whose job is to underpay your claim and protect their bottom line. By hiring an attorney who has plenty of experience with cases like yours, you can level the playing field and ensure that your rights are protected.
