Things to consider After an injury

Medical Bills: How much will your medical bills be? Will you require future medical treatment for broken bones, disc injuries, and other injuries? How will you pay for these expenses?

Lost Income: How much income have you already lost since your car accident? How much more time will your injury require you to be out of work? Is your damage so severe that it may force you to give up your current employment? How will you make ends meet?

These are just a few issues that often come up in personal injury cases. But there are others, such as who is responsible for your injuries?

FAQs

Generally, the time limit to file a personal injury claim in New Orleans is one year from the date of your accident. This time limit is critical since most personal injury lawsuits filed past this deadline are denied. This site is not meant to offer a legal opinion on your specific legal need. Please consult an lawyer immediately on important case issues.

That’s why it is of utmost importance that you contact New Orleans personal injury attorney, Brent Cueria, today—even if you think the time limit may have expired on your accidents claim.

Many factors may affect your time limit to file a personal injury suit. For example, cases involving delayed injuries from a defective drug, defective product, or medical malpractice may result in a longer time limit. However, claims against a governmental entity will have a shorter time limit.

When most people think about damages they can recover in their personal injury lawsuit, they think of “economic damages.”

ECONOMIC DAMAGES MAY INCLUDE:

  • past and future medical expenses related to the injury
  • lost income from not being able to work due to the injury
  • the cost of repairs to your car or other property that may have been damaged in an accident.

However, there are also “non-economic damages” you can recover in your personal injury claim.

NON-ECONOMIC DAMAGES MAY INCLUDE:

  • pain and suffering
  • loss of consortium (including loss of love, companionship, affection, society, comfort, support, sexual relations, or services)

It is vital that you contact a skilled personal injury lawyer New Orleans who is familiar with New Orleans injury law so that you can be truly informed of the damages to which you may be entitled.

Most basic personal injury cases can be settled without going to court through what is called an “out-of-court settlement”. Louisiana personal injury attorney Brent Cueria has over two decades of experience in reaching fair agreements with insurance companies without having to go to court. However, as an aggressive advocate, he has also tried many cases in which the responsible person failed to offer fair compensation for his clients’ injuries.

The benefit of contacting New Orleans personal injury attorney Brent Cueria today is that he can assess your claim as early as possible to determine if the insurance company has proposed a fair offer, or if they are trying to “low ball” you. From there, he can skillfully negotiate a more appropriate settlement figure for your injuries. And finally, if need be, he will bring your case to trial to represent your best interests.

The length of time to receive a personal injury settlement ranges from a few weeks to years. Every accident injuries case is different. Some factors that may affect the time in your personal injury settlement are the amount of evidence, the analysis of the evidence, testimony and witnesses, and the court schedule.

Most accident cases settle out of court before ever arriving at trial. A settlement is an ideal situation. We want to find a settlement offer that is appropriate for your injuries without the hassle of litigating the case through litigation and appeals.

An experienced New Orleans personal injury attorney can—and should—review your initial settlement offer from an insurance company before you accept it. Many times insurance companies offer a low settlement to “nip your case in the bud.” However, an experienced New Orleans injury attorney can advise you of what fair and adequate compensation would look like in your accident case, as well as demand that the insurance company increases its settlement offer. If the parties cannot reach an agreement, your Louisiana personal injury attorney will take your case to court.
