Personal Injury Claims in Louisiana

Because Louisiana is a fault state, this means that accident victims must prove that the at-fault party was responsible for the injury. To receive compensation, the victim must prove the following:

  • The other party breached the duty of care.

  • The victim's injuries were directly caused by the other party's negligence, not another reason.

  • The victim suffered actual injuries and/or damages, which is also called "measurable damages".

You have three main options for filing a personal injury claim: against your own insurance, against the at-fault party, and/or through litigation.

Damages Available

Damages refer to the losses associated with your accident. Each case is individual, so that means that damages apply according to the case in question. However, here are some possible damages you may claim:

  • Compensatory damages. This can include medical bills, loss of income, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.

  • Punitive damages. Punitive damages are assessed to punish a defendant for negligence. Not every case will receive punitive damages, but some common examples include distracted or drunk driving.
