Serious injuries can after one’s life in unimaginable ways. Different accidents can cause permanent damage to one’s physical and mental health, along with a ﬁnancial impact that can be equally as devastating. Often, the most tragic part of these severe injuries is that they were caused by the negligence of others and could have been prevented if the responsible party had taken reasonable actions.
Paying for medical expenses, missing work, and adjusting to a diminished quality of life are just some of the issues that many personal injury victims cope with in the wake of a severe or catastrophic accident. Many victims are so overwhelmed with hardship that a legal ﬁght to receive the compensation that they rightfully deserve might seem unbearable. For that reason, too many people choose to settle for an amount that will never be adequate to cover their losses and damages.

Can I still pursue compensation for damages if I was partially at fault for the accident?
No. You should never sign a release or settlement until your injuries are completely resolved and you have reviewed the release with your lawyer.
Maybe. If your injuries are directly caused by the accident, then they should. In any event, the driver and their insurance are responsible for all damages caused by them in a car accident.
Maybe. If you are not at fault and the person that caused the accident did not have sufficient insurance limits, and you are forced to make a claim on your own insurance, it is illegal for your insurance company to raise your insurance premium.
No. In addition to the statement you likely provided to the police officer at the time of the accident, the insurance company will want another statement. If there are inconsistencies in your statements, they will likely use that inconsistency to deny or reduce their liability.
Yes. The payor of your medical bills does not change your recovery for general damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional damages, and lost wages.
It is critical that you see a doctor and be treated for any pain or injuries from your car accident at the earliest time possible. In Louisiana, if you wait a signiﬁcant period of time before being treated, you will lose the presumption that your injuries are related to the accident and will create further dispute in your recovery.
Louisiana charges any person who causes damages to repair it. Louisiana recognizes many injuries as damages including wrongful death, past and future medicals bills, past and future pain and suffering, mental anguish, past and future wages, and lose of earning capacity.
Not necessarily. A majority of car accident claims settle without having to ﬁle a lawsuit. Of the remaining claims, a large number of claims resolve after ﬁling suit. Generally, only if liability is disputed or if your claim has substantial injuries, including future damages, will you need to take a deposition.
Yes. In Louisiana, diminished value of a vehicle is recoverable. After your car has been in an accident, it loses value even if it is completely repaired. Depending on the age, mileage, and pre-loss value of the car, this amount can vary greatly.
