The difficulty of recovering from a personal injury can’t be overestimated. You should not have to live with the consequences of someone else’s reckless behavior. When someone behaves negligently and it causes an injury or death, they should be held accountable.
If you or your loved one were injured in an accident as a result of another party’s negligence, one of our personal injury lawyers in Alexandria at Morris Bart, LLC can help you hold them responsible and collect financial compensation for what you’ve experienced.
What Is Personal Injury Law?
Not every injury we receive in life is something deliberate. Accidents happen. However, sometimes an accident wouldn’t have happened if someone was paying attention or acting in a dangerous way. This is the heart of personal injury law.
When you are injured by someone because of their negligence, the law gives you the right to sue them for compensation. Personal injury attorneys represent the injured when they are hurt by someone else.
One common reason is car accidents. These are so common that most states require all drivers to carry insurance to cover injuries and property damage. Your lawyer negotiates with the insurer to get you the money you need after your accident.

You Have A Right To Pursue The Compensation You Deserve
Your attorney should be dedicated to recuperating as much of your financial and emotional losses as allowable by civil laws and guidelines. Quite often, this is through a settlement negotiation, but we are also skilled at trial cases.
An Alexandria personal injury attorney can review the details of your case and establish a baseline number for negotiation purposes. You can get compensation for:
- Past, current, and future medical bills
- Lost work wages and benefits from missed work
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Wrongful death
- Property damage
Time missed at work and a shortage of insurance coverage adds to the stress and worry of an accident you did not cause. While it is true that money does not correct the past mistakes of another person, it may help you take care of yourself and the family that depends on you.
Understanding Your Rights After A Personal Injury Accident
Our personal injury attorneys in Alexandria can explain to you relevant laws that you might be unaware of. We want to protect you and fight for your right to compensation. We can do this by first determining negligence in your case and then proving fault.
In order for injured victims in Louisiana to seek compensation for their damages from the at-fault party, they must determine negligence. A jury cannot render a verdict in favor of the plaintiff unless a personal injury attorney can prove this. With the evidence we collect from your case, we can identify a duty of care, a breach of that duty, causation and your damages.
If you were partially responsible for your accident, you can still recover compensation from the at-fault party according to the comparative fault law, found in Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §2323.
The compensation you receive for your damages, however, will get reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, individuals who are 30% at fault for the accident would only recover 70% of their damages.
