Personal Injuries Can Include Many Types of Negligence

- Trucks and commercial vehicles.
- Rideshares, including Uber and Lyft.
- Hit and runs.
- Uninsured/underinsured motorists.
- Medical malpractice.
- Birth injuries.
- Falls and other premises liability cases.
- Workers’ compensation and workplace injury.
When a family member passes away as a result of their Luling accident injuries, our team can also help. Under Louisiana law, certain family members can pursue a case based on negligence and recover damages. This may include the following:
- Civil Code (CC) § 2315.1 allows for a survival action to recover similar losses available in a personal injury case.
- CC § 2315.2 allows for a wrongful death action to recover the losses experienced by the surviving family members.

Let Our Team Review Your Luling Personal Injury Case for Free Today
If your complimentary consultation points to your injuries occurring as a result of another party’s careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent behavior, our team can explain how we may be able to help you with your case. This includes identifying the liable party or parties and proving negligence using evidence recovered in your case.
A Luling personal injury lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm will need to recover evidence to prove the four primary factors of negligence, including that:
- The negligent party had an obligation to take certain actions to keep you safe.
- That party failed to do their part.
- The party’s failure led to your incident or accident.
- You suffered injuries and financial losses as a result.
If we believe you have a strong enough case to hold the party accountable for your injuries, we will offer to represent you on a contingency basis. This means you will not need to pay us any fees unless we recover compensation in your case. We can discuss these fees more before you sign a contract for our services.
Deadlines to File
We need to get started on investigating your accident as soon as we can because there are deadlines you will need to meet in order to protect your right to file a lawsuit. Per Louisiana CC § 3492, Louisiana only gives accident victims one year to pursue a legal case, in most cases. We need time to collect evidence, develop a strong argument, and take other steps before we can complete the paperwork for your lawsuit if that becomes necessary.
Pursuing Damages in a Luling Personal Injury Case
An insurance claim may allow our team to recover a financial payout in your case, depending on how your injuries occurred and the coverage available under the at-fault party’s policy. This may include the following:
- Car insurance liability policy
- Homeowners insurance liability policy
- Corporate liability policy
- An umbrella policy specific to the activity or item, such as a policy covering a boat
Whether we can reach a settlement to compensate you fairly or if we need to represent you in court, we will seek a just award on your behalf. We can determine a fair settlement value following our investigation into your accident and injuries. Recoverable damages may include:
- Current and future treatment, hospitalization, and related care costs.
- Current and future lost income, including reduced earning ability.
- Property damages.
- Pain and suffering damages.
- Mental anguish.
- Wrongful death damages for qualifying family members.
Contact us today about your case. The recoverable damages and value of each case vary based on the losses that you experienced. We may be able to uncover a wide range of expenses and other damages in your case.
