Preventable accidents affect millions of people each year. In order to help compensate people who are injured by the negligence of others, Louisiana and every other state in the country have some form of personal injury law. Under general personal injury law principles, a person who can establish that their accident was caused by negligence can recover for losses such as medical expenses, property damage, lost income, and physical and emotional pain and suffering, among others. The links provided below are intended to help people who are not lawyers and have no legal training better understand personal injury law. It is extremely important to remember, however, that personal injury law varies significantly from state to state, so anyone who is considering pursuing a claim should be certain to discuss their case with an experienced personal injury lawyer in their jurisdiction.
