Have you suffered injuries in an accident? If so, you need to make sure that you have experienced legal counsel by your side. A Slidell personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara will work to protect your rights.
The term personal injury covers a variety of injuries and circumstances. Not only is each case unique, it also depends upon a variety of factors that determine how much compensation you can expect to receive. A Slidell personal injury lawyer can examine your case and help you through each step of the claims process.
Below are a few different types of injuries that routinely qualify as a personal injury claim that may be appropriate for a lawsuit.
If you were the passenger in a car accident, you may be able to file a claim against the driver’s insurance company. This is true regardless of whether or not the driver of your car was at fault. Moreover, if you were a driver of the car in question, you may still have a case even if you were partially at fault for the accident.
Property owners have a duty to keep their property safe and free from potential hazards. An injured person can recover damages in slip and fall cases in two different types of situations:
If you suffered injury in a dog bite incident, the owner of the dog is often held liable. Liability can fall on the owner regardless of whether the bite occurred on your property or on public property. The dog owner may be liable even if the bite occurred on the owner’s property.

Your Slidell personal injury lawyer will retain a medical expert from the field in question to review the facts of your case.
People have a duty of care, meaning that they have an obligation to be mindful of and look out for the care and safety of others. If someone neglects this duty and causes injury to you as a result, you may be entitled to receive compensation.
Likewise, business owners have an obligation to exercise due care when it comes to their employees. This includes making sure that the workplace is safe, such as providing a hard hat in areas in which a hard hat is appropriate. Or it may mean providing proper protective equipment when employees are handling dangerous chemicals.
Falling where there is unattended water on the floor or where a platform lacked proper securing with a banister or railing are additional examples of work-related injuries. If you sustained work-related injuries, you may file a Workers’ Compensation claim.
You may also have a legal claim if injury or death resulted from defective products. Examples of defective products include:
Whether you are dealing with injuries from a car accident, slip and fall, dog bite, or medical malpractice claim, you may be entitled to receive monetary compensation for your losses:
