Do I Have a Case?

There are a variety of factors that will determine whether you are eligible for compensation. When we review your case, here are some common things we will establish:

Are You Within the Legal Deadline?

There is a legal deadline, called the statute of limitations, for filing a personal injury claim. In Baton Rouge, the statute of limitations is one year after the date of the accident, which means you must file your claim within one year of your accident or you may lose your rights to compensation.

However, there are exceptions to this deadline. If you are worried about missing the legal deadline for your case, contact us today for a free case review and we will walk you through all of your legal options.

Was Someone Else at Fault for the Accident?

Determining who is legally at fault for an accident is known as liability. In order to receive compensation, you will need to prove who was liable for the accident that caused your injury. This means your Baton Rouge personal injury lawyer will need to prove the other person acted in an irresponsible manner, their actions caused the accident, and the accident caused your injury.

After we establish those factors, we will talk about your specific injuries and work to build a case to seek compensation.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get?

It’s hard to say what your specific case is worth upfront because every case is unique, and it depends on the specific injuries you have suffered. In general, you may be eligible to seek compensation for a wide range of injuries and resulting expenses. These may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of consortium
  • And more

Economic vs. Non-Economic Damages

Compensation for injury claims often gets divided into economic damages or non-economic damages. “Economic” defines damages with a value that can easily be calculated, such as medical expenses, loss of income, or property damage. “Non-economic” damages are those with values that are not as easy to define, such as PTSD, depression, or anxiety.

Our Baton Rouge personal injury attorneys may be able to give you a better idea of the damages you qualify for during your initial case evaluation.

Put an Award-Winning Firm on Your Side!

If you’ve been hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault, never forget that you have rights. You deserve justice, and you deserve to be compensated for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost future earnings potential, and the emotional damage you’ve suffered. That’s why our team at Gauthier Amedee is here for you.

If you’re looking for a law firm that truly understands what you’re going through while bringing years of experience to the table, we are ready to help. We’ve seen too many people come through our doors who are suffering because someone else was irresponsible, and we’ve dedicated our lives to fighting for the justice they deserve. We are your Go2Lawyers. All it takes is a simple phone call — you don’t even have to leave your house! Just reach out to us at 225-647-1700 and we’ll start your case review right away.

What Comes Next?

Our hard-hitting team of Baton Rouge personal injury lawyers will review your case at absolutely no cost to you. You can choose to have a consultation in person, over the phone, or on a video call.

We will compile all the evidence we need to build the strongest case possible so that you have your best chance at maximum compensation. This evidence includes medical records, witness statements, doctors’ testimonies, and more. We do the work so you can focus on recovering.

Once we build the strongest case possible, we will issue demand letters to the insurance companies and negotiate with the insurance adjusters. This process can take time, so we’ll keep you updated every step of the way.

Personal injury cases rarely have to go to trial. We only suggest taking your case to court when the insurance adjuster isn’t offering a fair settlement and is unwilling to negotiate. We want you to receive the settlement you deserve, so if we do have to go to court, our team will handle the litigation process. 

Our goal is to help you recover and move on as quickly as possible. As soon as a settlement is reached, our team stays hard at work to ensure you receive your check as quickly as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury

Generally not. Your payout is almost always going to be a one-time lump sum. The costs of future medical payments and future lost wages will be estimated into your final settlement, and your personal injury lawyer will negotiate with the other parties for a reasonable sum.

Proving responsibility in order to seek compensation for your injuries requires three factors that are at the core of almost every injury case.

First, you need to prove that the other party had a duty of care, or a duty to act in a safe way, or the way that a reasonable person would normally act under similar circumstances. Second, you need to show that they failed to act in a reasonable way and that their actions were reckless. Finally, you need to show that their reckless acts directly led to the accident and that you got hurt as a result. These three things might seem simple to demonstrate, but they can quickly become complicated without legal assistance. That’s why you need an experienced Baton Rouge personal injury lawyer on your side. 

Often, when you file an injury claim, you will be contacted by an insurance adjuster for the other party within a few days. It is advisable to let your attorney handle communication with them.

At first, they will act very compassionate and friendly, but be aware that their real job is to get you to sign off on as low an offer as possible. If you don’t do it right away, they will become less friendly. They might even tell you that if you don’t sign, you won’t get anything at all. Instead of talking to them, simply refer them to your personal injury lawyer at Gauthier Amedee.

If you signed insurance paperwork, you may have signed away your rights to further compensation. If you signed an agreement to accept a settlement, it’s more important than ever to contact our personal injury attorneys as soon as possible. There may still be options available, and your initial conversation with us will be completely free with no obligation. Without help, you may be stuck with a very low offer for your injuries. Let the Baton Rouge personal injury lawyers at Gauthier Amedee be your Go2Lawyers and fight for your rights.
