What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is a lawsuit or insurance claim filed by someone that suffered an injury or damage to his or her property because of someone else’s negligence. Personal injury claims can also be filed by the bereaved on behalf of a person that was killed because of someone else’s negligence.

If you and your lawyer can prove, either in a court of law or in a negotiation, that the other party’s negligence makes them liable, then you can recover monetary compensation for damages like medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.

There are lots of different kinds of personal injury claims and cases, such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Defective products
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Wrongful death

Do I have a case?

Not every injury or death stemming from an accident is viable for a personal injury case or claim. Louisiana has very clear state laws about what makes a valid personal injury case: an injury claim is not valid unless there is evidence of negligence and liability.

Specifically, there are 4 elements of negligence your lawyer must prove in order for you to have a valid personal injury case:

  • Duty of care – Duty of care is a person’s legal duty to take reasonable measures to prevent harming others.
  • Breach of duty of care  – Your attorney must prove that the negligent party had duty of care to you, and that the party did not fulfill that duty.
  • Breach of duty is the main cause of the injury – Not only do you have to prove that the duty of care was breached, but also that that breach was the main cause of the accident and subsequent injury or damage.
  • The injury caused damages – You also must be able to prove that the injury sustained from the accident was the direct cause of financial, emotional, or physical damages.
