Lemannville, LA – Various types of injuries can happen to people every day during normal activities such as driving, working, and shopping. These injuries can vary greatly, from life changing or fatal, to very minor and requiring little or not medical treatment. Most people and businesses have insurance that can cover the costs of these kinds of accidents when necessary, but there are also injury lawyers that focus their entire practice on helping people with their healthcare costs and other losses. Lawyers have special training and experience they can use to ensure that the business, person, or entity who caused the injury will pay their fair share and follow the law.
Here are some situations where an injured person will probably want to get legal advice and bring a lawsuit, although each individual should evaluate their own needs with the help of an attorney.
Serious motor vehicle accidents
The expenses associated with a severe car or truck accident can be very high and follow a person for years afterward. This is especially true if the victim sustains some kind of disability or permanent health issues. An injury lawyer can ask for various kinds of compensation for their client, such as damages for pain and suffering, along with the person’s lost income and wages.
Products liability lawsuits
When a company releases any kind of product into the stream of commerce in Louisiana or other states, it is expected to be suitable for use as directed. This is a kind of implied warranty. Those who were hurt while using any kind of product for its intended use can take legal action and hold the manufacturer, designer, distributor, or others in the chain of commerce liable. As with other injury cases, compensation can vary based on how seriously the person was hurt by the defective product.
Many insurance companies assume that people who were injured will not be represented. This causes them to try to save money by offering low amounts in their initial settlement. Lawyers who work on injury cases generally have extensive experience with the process to get compensation for their clients by negotiating with an insurance company for an amount that reflects the serious nature of their losses.
