Personal Injury FAQs

Every case is unique, but generally, you must prove these factors in order to win your personal injury case:

  1. The defendant owed you a duty of care
  2. The defendant did not uphold their duty of care
  3. The defendant’s failure to uphold that duty of care caused your accident
  4. Your injuries were a direct result of the accident

These factors show negligence on the part of the defendant, which proves that they are responsible for your injuries and the damages caused by the accident.

Typically, yes. However, it depends on the context of the claim and the specifics of your insurance policy. Here are some relevant scenarios:

  • Subrogation: If your insurance company pays for your medical expenses and believes that another party is at fault, they may pursue a process called subrogation. In subrogation, your insurer seeks reimbursement from the party at fault or their insurance. If you receive a settlement or award from the third party after your insurer has pursued subrogation, the amount may be reduced by what your insurer has already paid.
  • Secondary Insurance Claims: If you have multiple insurance policies, such as primary and secondary health insurance, you might be able to file a claim with your secondary insurance after your primary insurance has paid. This is usually subject to coordination of benefits rules, and the secondary insurer will typically cover costs not covered by the primary insurance, up to the limits of the policy.
  • Policy Limits & Conditions: Your ability to file another claim may depend on the limits of your policy and the specific conditions outlined in your insurance agreement. Some policies may have provisions that limit the ability to file additional claims once a claim has been paid.
  • Deductibles & Copayments: If your insurance covered the bulk of your medical expenses but you were still out-of-pocket for deductibles, copayments, or non-covered services, you may be able to claim these expenses depending on the circumstances of your case and the specifics of your insurance coverage.

It’s important to contact our Gonzales personal injury law firm before filing a claim to determine what compensation you can pursue.

There are no upfront costs. Gauthier Amedee believes no one should be denied access to good legal counsel because of the cost. That’s why we don’t get paid until we win your case. Our legal fees are taken directly from your settlement amount, so you never have to pay out-of-pocket.

Potentially. It is not uncommon for injuries to appear a few days (or sometimes weeks) after the accident. Seeking medical attention immediately after an accident, even if you don’t feel hurt, will enable a medical professional to identify and document any potential underlying injuries before they surface. This documentation can serve as important evidence in your case.

Possibly. In most cases, our personal injury law firm is able to obtain compensation without going to court. It is typically in the best interests of the insurance companies and the at-fault party to settle out of court, so it is likely that your case will not have to go to trial.

In the unlikely event that your case does go to trial, our attorneys can represent you and argue your case in court.
