At the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara, we understand that a serious accident can be traumatic and often overwhelming. If you have sustained injuries in an accident, you will likely face numerous challenges. Don’t face them alone. A Thibodaux personal injury lawyer can help you protect your rights and receive the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
Each personal injury case is unique. As such, determining how much compensation you may receive is dependent on a variety of factors, depending on the unique circumstances of your case. That is why it is important to have an experienced Thibodaux personal injury lawyer who will examine your case to determine what steps to take next.
What type of injuries qualify as a personal injury claim? And how can you know if you have a lawsuit? Below, we list the most common types of injuries handled by our firm.
If an individual is negligent and fails to take measures to look out for the safety of other people, and this negligence subsequently causes injury to you, you may be able to receive damages.
Car accidents are responsible for many serious injuries, which bring with them several legal challenges. For example, you must determine who is at fault and who is liable, as well as get insurance companies to pay up. If you were a passenger of a vehicle in a car accident, you may be able to file a claim against the driver’s insurance company. Moreover, even if you were the driver and were partially at fault, you may still have a case.
In dog bite injury cases, the dog owner is often liable regardless of where the injury occurred. It may have occurred on your property, public property, and even the owner’s property — liability can still fall on the owner. Your Thibodaux personal injury lawyer will be able to walk you through any issues that may arise in determining appropriate compensation for your claim.
Property owners have a duty of care in the sense that they have an obligation to keep their property safe from hazards that could cause injury to others. If you sustained a slip and fall injury, you may be able to recover compensation in two different types of situations:
A medical malpractice case may arise due to incompetent or unreasonable medical care. Your Thibodaux personal injury lawyer will review your case, as well as the standard of care exercised by the medical professionals involved in your treatment. The three major areas he will look for are:

Proving improper diagnosis is similar to proving mistakes in treatment. You must prove that:
If you have a medical malpractice claim, your Thibodaux personal injury lawyer will retain a medical expert from the appropriate field to review your case.
When it comes to duty of care, business owners also have a duty to exercise care in making sure the workplace is safe for their employees. This may involve providing a hard hat in areas where wearing a hard hat would be appropriate. Similarly, business owners must provide protective equipment if employees are handling dangerous chemicals.
Work-related injuries may also occur if there is unattended water on the floor and an employee falls as a result. Another example is if an employee falls off a platform due to a lack of proper securing with a railing or a banister of some kind. Generally, employees who have sustained a work-related injury may file a Workers’ Compensation claim.
If injury or death of a loved one was caused by defective products, you may be able to hold the manufacturer responsible. Defective products may include, for example:
Dealing with injuries from any of the above can be difficult and distressing. Your Thibodaux personal injury lawyer can help you receive monetary compensation for your losses, such as for:
