Recoverable Damages in a Mandeville Car Accident Case
When we accept a car accident case, our goal is to recover compensation for the expenses and losses our client endured because of the accident.

Under Louisiana Civil Code section 2323, Louisiana’s comparative fault law, victims have the right to seek damages. If we determine you can file an insurance claim and recover compensation, it could include:
- Current and future medical treatment and related care
- Current and future lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Pain and suffering
- Other non-economic damages
- Wrongful death damages, if you lost an immediate family member as a result of the accident

Our Car Accident Lawyers Serving Mandeville May Be Able to Build a Case on Your Behalf
We offer free case reviews to car accident victims. During these reviews, we can help you understand your rights and legal options and explain whether or not we believe you should pursue damages. Recovering compensation in these cases requires us to collect evidence that proves:
- The other driver had an obligation to follow certain laws and drive in a safe way.
- The other driver failed to follow these laws and other safe driving practices.
- The other driver’s careless or reckless behavior caused your accident and injuries.
- You sustained physical and financial damages as a result of the accident.
We will offer to handle your case based on contingency. This service means you will not pay anything out of pocket. We will only get paid if we recover a settlement or court award on your behalf. We can often settle car accident cases without going to trial. This approach is possible by filing an insurance claim based on the at-fault driver’s auto liability insurance policy. We can then present our evidence to the insurance company and demand a just settlement. If they refuse to work with us in good faith, it may be necessary to take your case to trial. Reach out to a car accident lawyer serving Mandeville today by calling (504) 613-4771. Our case reviews are always free for Louisiana car accident victims.

Louisiana Statute of Limitations on Car Accident Cases
Under Louisiana Civil Code Article 3492, car accident victims only have one year from the date of their accident to file a lawsuit and pursue compensation in court. If they do not meet this deadline, they will likely lose the right to take legal action and hold the negligent driver accountable. We can often avoid taking these cases to trial, but it is imperative that our clients retain the right to file a lawsuit if it becomes necessary. We need to get started on your case as soon as possible to ensure your right remains protected. Contact us as soon as your injuries are stable for your complimentary consultation with a member of our team.
