Frequently Asked Questions about Accidents in New Orleans

What is considered a personal injury in Louisiana?

In Louisiana, a personal injury refers to any physical or emotional injury suffered by a person due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. Common examples include injuries from car accidents, slip and fall incidents, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents.

Can I still recover damages if I was partly at fault for the accident?

Louisiana follows a comparative fault rule, which allows you to recover damages even if you were partly at fault. However, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you.

What types of compensation can I recover in a personal injury lawsuit in New Orleans?

You may be entitled to various forms of compensation, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. In certain cases, punitive damages may also be awarded.

How long does a personal injury lawsuit take in New Orleans?

The duration of a personal injury lawsuit can vary significantly based on the complexity of the case, the clarity of facts, the cooperation of the parties involved, and the court’s schedule. Cases can resolve in a few months or take several years.

What happens if the person responsible for my injury does not have enough insurance?

If the at-fault party lacks sufficient insurance coverage, you may be able to seek compensation through your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage or pursue the individual’s assets directly.
