What types of compensation can I seek in my claim and when will I know if I need a lawyer?

Generally, the categories of damages under Louisiana injury law are:

  • Past and future physical pain and suffering
  • Past and future mental anguish and distress
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Reimbursement of household services
  • And possibly others

If you are the least bit unsure of any of the issues involved in your case or do not understand the process completely, chances are you need a lawyer to pursue your case. If you have significant injuries or damages, you need an attorney to help pursue your case.

Insurance companies are in the business of minimizing and eliminating valid claims. Most insurance policies require the insured to cooperate with his or her insurance company to investigate a claim. Generally, you are not required to talk directly to your insurance company and give a statement, recorded or otherwise, about the accident. What it generally means is that you have to timely notify your insurance company of an accident and potential claims and provide certain basic details. You can do this through a third-party, such as an attorney.

You should not give a statement about the accident to an insurance company or claims adjuster before you obtain experienced legal advice. You should contact an experienced attorney before you give a statement to anyone concerning an accident.

Insurance companies have developed a multitude of methods and processes to eliminate your valid claim. One way is to advise a claimant that the information provided is insufficient to support adequate proof of loss for the claims or damages being made. Documentation of certain items, such as future medical expenses, can be very difficult and expensive to obtain. Evidence supporting loss of earning capacity can be very difficult to develop, understand, and present to a judge or jury. If you want to give yourself the best chance to maximize the value of your claim, you should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to give the attorney time to obtain important information, which may be lost through the passage of time.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Matt & Allen have over forty years of combined legal experience. They work hard so that their clients get the compensation that they deserve. Contact the Law Offices of Matt & Allen for more information.

How do I pursue my claim and how long will it take?

Generally, the process involves investigation into liability and damages. Claims can be both legally and factually complex. A simple automobile accident can be complicated by several eye witnesses with different versions of how each thought the accident occurred. Courts in different jurisdictions may have applied the laws differently to similar factual settings, resulting in conflicting decisions. Your lawyer will investigate the facts of your case and advise you as to what the liability picture looks like. Your damages may not be completely known until you have finished all of your medical treatment and had some time to reflect on the residual effects of any disability, pain or mental anguish you may continue to suffer.

The effects on your ability to earn wages may take additional time to calculate. Once your damages are known, your attorney should be able to make a recommendation on the value of your claim. Your claim is then in a position to attempt to negotiate a settlement. If a settlement is reached, the other side usually has a limited amount of time to fund the settlement absent extenuating circumstances. If the parties are unable to reach a settlement, a lawsuit is filed. The time it takes for a lawsuit to resolve can vary widely depending on the parties and complexity of the issues involved. In most cases under Louisiana law, the plaintiff has one year from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. From our experience, most cases settle within thirty to sixty (30-60) days from the date treatment has ended. Lawsuits usually take from ten (10) months to several years to conclude. This is why many cases settle before a lawsuit is filed.
