Slip and Fall Accidents

If you slipped on something or fell because of someone else’s negligence, you may have a slip and fall claim. An Opelousas personal injury lawyer can help you assert a claim for personal injuries under the theory of premise liability if the property owner:

  • Knew about the hazard or danger but failed to do anything to fix the situation, or
  • Alleged he was not aware of the hazard or danger but a reasonable person under the same circumstances would have known of the hazard or danger.

Dog Attacks

Pursuant to Louisiana law, a dog owner is liable if you sustained injuries from a dog’s conduct, such as a bite or a mauling, so long as you did not provoke the dog. It does not matter where the incident occurred.

Medical Malpractice

You could have a medical malpractice claim if you were injured from a medical professional’s incompetence or unreasonable medical care. There are three ways you could have a medical malpractice claim:

  • Your medical professional performed a medical procedure against your wishes or failed to fully inform you of the risks and benefits of that medical procedure; or,
  • Your medical professional improperly diagnosed you and a reasonably, competent doctor with the same information would have made the correct diagnosis; or,
  • Your medical professional made a mistake during your treatment and a reasonably, competent doctor in the same situation would not have made that same mistake.

Wrongful Death and Severe Personal Injury

Many personal injury cases are stressful, but wrongful death and severe personal injury claims are the most destructive and traumatic.

Wrongful Death

In Louisiana, a wrongful death action can provide financial compensation whereas criminal prosecution won’t. If someone’s gross negligence caused the death of your loved one, an Opelousas personal injury lawyer can help you sue that person for wrongful death.

Severe Personal Injury

Most personal injury claims involve bruising, lacerations, sprains or even broken bones. However, severe personal injury cases are significantly more serious. The injuries are debilitating and often permanent. Injuries may include traumatic brain injury, loss of a limb, severe spinal injury, or burn injuries.

The above personal injury cases are not an exclusive list. Several theories of liability may be combined against more than one party when you file a personal injury case. As a knowledgeable and experienced Opelousas personal injury lawyer, J. Price McNamara can educate you on your rights. He can also help you navigate the complex personal injury theories, as well as compile evidence in support of your claim. This includes retaining the appropriate medical expert to explain the complex medical terms, prove the extent of your injuries and your prognosis, and link your injuries to the accident.

Benefits for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

When you are in an accident, often times you deal with an insurance company—your own or the other party’s insurance company—when you are seeking compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies, as private, for-profit entities—are both well equipped and staffed to handle personal injury claims on a daily basis. Their objective is to offer quick, often low-ball settlements where you waive your rights to sue, hoping you do not understand your rights. With an Opelousas personal injury lawyer fighting at your side, you increase your deserved compensation, which may include not only your current medical expenses but also:

  • Future medical expenses
  • Past and future lost wages or lost income
  • Rehabilitative expenses
  • Pain and suffering

Call an Opelousas Personal Injury Lawyer

If you suffered injuries due to an accident, contact seasoned Opelousas personal injury lawyer J. Price McNamara as soon as possible. You have one year from the date of your injury to file suit or you lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
