Negligence

Someone is negligent if he or she fails to take reasonable care to avoid an accident that caused injury or death to another person. Louisiana’s Civil Code (CC) 2316 obligates every person for damages he or she causes because of his or her action, negligence, imprudence or “want of skill.”  People are expected to exercise due care; they are obligated to care for the safety of others.  You may be entitled to receive compensation, or “damages,” if a person’s breach of this duty causes your injury.

CC 232 outlines Louisiana’s comparative fault laws, which allows you to recover damages from any person responsible for the accident causing your injury irrespective of how big a role your conduct contributed to the accident. Taking your conduct into consideration, Louisiana courts will reduce the amount you may recover from other at-fault parties by the percentage of your own fault.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

You may face legal challenges in a motor vehicle accident case, such as:

  • Determining who is at fault for the accident
  • Determining your injuries, especially if your injuries are pre-existing
  • Getting the insurance company to pay a fair compensation

If you sustained injuries as a passenger of a motor vehicle accident, you may file a personal injury claim against any responsible party and the driver’s insurance company irrespective as to whether the driver was at fault.

Slip and Fall Accidents in St. Francisville

Property owners and tenants have an obligation to keep their property free of potential hazards. In a slip and fall accident case, you may recover damages if the owner or tenant:

  • Knew about the hazard and did nothing to remedy or to notify the public of the hazard, or
  • Denies knowledge of the hazard but someone else in their circumstances would have known of the hazard.

Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical malpractice occurs because of incompetent or unreasonable medical care, which falls under three areas:

  1) Lack of Informed Consent — occurs if the medical professional:

    • Failed to fully inform the patient of the risks and benefits of a given medical procedure, or
    • Performed a procedure on a patient against the patient’s wishes

2) Mistakes in Treatment — you must show:

    • The medical professional must have made a mistake in the treatment of your condition; and,
    • A reasonable, competent doctor would have not made the same mistake.

    3) Improper Diagnosis — you must show:

    • The diagnosis was made improperly; and,
    • A reasonable, competent doctor with the same information would not have made the same mistake and would have made the correct diagnosis.

A St. Francisville personal injury lawyer will examine the standard of care and retain an appropriate medical expert to support your medical malpractice claim.

Strict Liability

In certain situations, Louisiana will hold parties strictly liable for your injuries without the requirement of proving negligence.

Dog Bites and Other Injuries

Louisiana specifically holds dog owners strictly liable for damages for any injury the dog causes to a person or property if:

  • The owner could have prevented the injury; and,
  • The injury did not result from your provocation of the dog.

This is true irrespective of where the injury occurred.  Although dog owners are strictly liable for their dog’s behavior, other domestic animal owners are only liable for their pet’s behavior if the injury occurred because of the owner’s negligence.

Product Liability in St. Francisville

Manufacturers could be held strictly liable for damages caused by an unreasonably dangerous product used in a reasonable anticipate manner.  A product is unreasonably dangerous by:

  • Its design
  • In manufacturing, construction or composition
  • Due to failure to adequately warning
  • Because the product did not confirm the express warranty of the manufacturer

Examples of defective products include faulty airbags or brakes, malfunctioning medical product or device, or playground equipment.

Work-Related Injuries

Employers have a duty to provide a safe work environment for their employees.  If you were injured while performing your duties or while at your workplace, you may file a Workers’ Compensation claim against your employer for your injuries without needing to prove fault; however, you cannot sue your employer for compensation for those injuries.

Your St. Francisville personal injury lawyer will help you recover monetary damages for your economic (calculable) and non-economic (not readily calculable) losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
