Our Team Handles Many Types of Personal Injury Cases
There is no exhaustive list of injuries or methods of injury that fall under the category of “personal injury.” This is one reason why our free consultations are so important. Our team can help you understand if your injuries may support legal action.
In general, to recover compensation, you will need to have suffered documented injuries and financial losses because of someone else’s negligent behavior. Some types of accidents that can occur as a result of negligent behavior involve:
- Cars, trucks, and buses.
- Pedestrians or bicycles.
- Uber, Lyft, and other rideshares.
- Intoxicated driving.
- Hit and run.
- Uninsured/underinsured motorists.
- Medical malpractice and birth injuries.
- Slip and falls or trip and falls.
- Falls from a height.
While all personal injury cases are based on the defendant’s liability, there are some cases when you may be able to pursue compensation despite sharing in the fault. This is known as comparative fault, under Louisiana Civil Code (CC) § 2323. If this applies in your case, we can help you understand the effect it may have and work to reduce that effect.

Securing Compensation for Your Mandeville Injuries and Damages
When you have a case for compensation against the party who caused your Mandeville injuries, it may be possible to present the supporting evidence to the insurance company representing the defendant and recover a payout. Most would rather avoid going to court in order to settle a personal injury claim.
An attorney from our team can present the facts of your case to the insurer and demand a fair settlement. This generally leads to settlement negotiations, and we will fight for a just settlement throughout this process.
Generally, we only need to escalate this process to a personal injury lawsuit if the insurer balks at a fair settlement, denies your claim, or claims unrealistic contributory negligence.
The recoverable damages in a fair settlement or award may include:
- Medical treatment, prescribed medication and devices, and related care.
- Lost income and diminished earning ability.
- Property damages.
- Pain and suffering.
- Other tangible and intangible losses.
- Wrongful death damages.
Let Us Go to Work on Your Mandeville Injury Case Today
Louisiana has deadlines on filing personal injury lawsuits. Under Louisiana CC § 3492, you must file the paperwork for your lawsuit before the anniversary of your injuries, in most cases. If you miss the deadline, you could permanently lose the right to take this injury case to court and recover compensation.
This also means you may lose leverage to negotiate a better out-of-court settlement, which could leave you without the compensation you need to cover your damages. To protect your potential payout, it is important to reach out to our team and enlist our help in advance of this deadline.
