Causes of Personal Injury

Personal injury cases arise from many causes. Most of them fall into the following common categories, some of which may not seem obvious.

Types of Personal Injuries

  • Inadequate or incorrect medical care at a hospital or a physician’s office, such as a poorly performed surgical procedure.
  • Car accidents, with or without impaired driver function.
  • Dog bites, no matter how small the dog.
  • Bicycle accidents at any age.
  • Dangerous construction defects at a home, a commercial firm or a government facility.
  • Abuse or neglect at a nursing home, even if unintentional.
  • Assault by a stranger, an acquaintance or a household member.
  • Harmful prescription or non-prescription drugs.
  • Birth injuries to either the mother or the child.
  • Injury or death from defective consumer products such as children’s toys, off-road sports vehicles, and household appliances.
  • Brain damage of any kind.
  • Wrongful death, no matter how it occurs.
  • Premises liability, such as for slip-and-fall accidents or dangerous working conditions.
  • Product liability, such as for electric shocks from poorly designed electrical appliances or fires from malfunctioning space heaters.
  • Government liability, such as from pollution of drinking water supplies.
  • Contract disputes.
  • Business disputes.

Other possible causes exist. Discussing the details with an experienced personal injury attorney can tell you whether your case holds legal merit.

Don’t Accept A Settlement Without Legal Advice

The corporations often liable for negligence in manufacturing, hospitals, nursing homes, and the workplace have a legal team ready to handle such cases and will quickly move to settle before you find representation. You should never sign a legal document after a personal injury without proper legal representation. Insurance companies and lawyers for those at fault may be sympathetic and appear to offer a reasonable amount to cover your losses. They may even try to intimidate you into not seeking proper representation. The truth is that even your own insurance company may not have your best interest at heart.

Insurance companies make their profits by collecting premiums and then hindering, limiting or denying claims. When you have legal representation after a personal injury, you have leverage. A personal injury attorney understands the law. The insurance companies recognize that specialized attorneys know the law and have a wealth of experience in dealing with specific types of injuries and the costs associated with those injuries.

Do not attempt to settle a personal injury or wrongful death case without the help of a accident injury attorney, or you will most likely not receive enough compensation to cover medical bills, life care, lost wages, pain and emotional distress. Worst of all, they may try to convince you that the injury was your own fault. Personal injury attorneys in Shreveport have the experience and knowledge to fight for the settlement you rightly deserve. They also understand that these injuries can potentially affect personal injury victims for years. They will work hard to get every dime you are owed.

Local personal injury lawyers have assisted clients in recovering billions of dollars from wrongful death cases as well. They understand what a difficult time this is for clients. Grief and financial distress often overwhelm those affected by wrongful deaths. Although no amount of money can ease their pain, personal injury attorneys in Shreveport work diligently and respectfully with clients to relieve any financial distress brought on by such a tragedy.

Why You Should Choose A Specialized Attorney

Personal injury lawyers typically evaluate cases for free. There is no financial reason not to contact a lawyer to handle a personal injury case, especially since handling the situation without legal expertise puts you at a disadvantage. Free consultations come with no obligation or strings attached. Simply make an appointment and allow personal injury attorneys in Shreveport to go over your rights and responsibilities.

Many victims turn to their family lawyers for help after a personal injury, but personal injury attorneys in Shreveport are very familiar with specific laws relating to personal injury and regularly work with insurance companies, reconstruction companies and medical experts. Their expertise allows your case to move swiftly through the court system.

Why You Should Act Now

Settling a lawsuit is a process. Personal injury attorneys will work diligently, but the sooner they can get started, the better. When accident victims wait weeks or months before seeking legal advice, evidence can be misplaced or destroyed, witnesses may move or change their phone number, and insurance companies may use your slow response as an excuse not to pay you.

Personal injury attorneys in Shreveport will move quickly to conduct a thorough investigation, seek all available evidence, conduct accident reconstruction and consult medical experts to maximize your compensation. As an accident victim, you may be entitled to medical costs, pain and suffering, loss of earnings or earning capacity, loss of consortium, property damage, as well as other out-of-pocket expenses incurred after the accident.

What To Expect At A Free Consultation

After a traumatic injury or death of a loved one, you need peace of mind and time to heal, which is another reason to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Quit losing sleep and worrying about financial obligations. Set up an appointment today and start focusing on your recovery.

Here is a list of things that would be helpful to bring to your initial consultation.

  • Bring any medical records related to your injury to the initial consultation. Remember, you should not delay in seeking medical care after you’ve been injured. Doing so can lengthen the recovery process and also raise questions regarding the date and severity of your injuries.
  • It’s wise to keep a diary beginning the day of the accident in case your memory fades. Record your version of the story in the journal and discuss your healing process. Be sure to monitor your emotional state as well.
  • Share any contact information you received from witnesses on the scene.
  • Photos or videos taken at the scene of the accident can be helpful to our investigators.
  • Police reports can be helpful because they offer a third-party perspective of the accident scene. They also list witnesses.

Even if you have no recollection of the events leading up to an accident or records of any kind, personal injury attorneys and their expert teams are capable of gathering everything they need to ensure you get the maximum amount of compensation allowed in your particular situation.
