Proving Fault and Liability in an Algiers Personal Injury Case
Proving a personal injury case requires presenting evidence that shows how the defendant’s actions caused your injuries and losses, and the value of the damages you suffered as a result. To prove negligence and liability, we will need to gather evidence that supports four primary factors:
- The defendant had a certain duty to you to prevent injury or harm.
- They failed to uphold their duty.
- Their failure directly caused an accident or incident.
- You suffered injuries and financial losses as a result.
Our team can take steps to secure a settlement in many personal injury cases, often without going to court. This may require us to:
- Identify the liable party
- Investigate your accident and injuries
- Work with experts who can help us prove your case
- Manage all communication with the defendant, insurer, and court
- Protect your right to take legal action
- Meet all applicable deadlines
- Put a fair settlement value on your case
- Negotiate a just settlement or determine that we need to go to trial
It is important to note that, per Louisiana Civil Code § 2323, Louisiana law will allow you to recover compensation even if you are partially at fault in your own accident and injuries, so long as the other party is primarily responsible for what happened. If this occurs in your case, we can help you understand the impacts and mitigate the effect it could have on your financial recovery.
