Comprehensive Answers to Common Personal Injury Questions
What is personal injury?
Personal injury is when one person suffers physical and sometimes emotional
damages because of someone else's negligence. Common causes of personal
injury are car accidents, premises liability, and
medical malpractice. Anyone who is wrongfully injured can recover compensation through a personal
How much is my claim worth?
It is not possible to determine exactly how much you will recover through
your claim. Each personal injury case is unique and involves unique factors.
Some of these have a set monetary value, such as medical bills and property
repairs, while others have no set value, such as emotional pain and suffering.
In order to have the highest possible chance of maximum compensation,
you need to hire a personal injury lawyer who can properly evaluate your
damages. Attorney Chris Soileau has 12 years of former experience as a
nurse and can provide a solid estimate of the extent of your injuries.
Although we cannot provide a definite value for your claim, our firm can
ensure that you win the highest possible settlement or verdict.
What is a catastrophic injury?
Catastrophic injuries are severe injuries, particularly those that result
in long-term or permanent impairment, disability, or disfigurement. Examples
include broken bones, severe burns, eye injuries, brain injuries, and
spinal cord injuries. Any of these injuries can have a lasting impact
on the victim's ability to enjoy life. Victims may never be unable
to return to the standard of living they held before their accident. Catastrophic
injuries deserve even more compensation due to their traumatic nature.
Our firm can fight to make sure that your compensation reflects the serious
nature of your catastrophic injuries. This is particularly true since
Attorney Soileau is a former nurse who can make sure that your injuries
are properly evaluated.
Who is liable for my accident?
One of the most important steps in any personal injury case is to establish
liability. In order to do so, your attorney will investigate your case
and gather evidence to prove that you were not responsible for your accident.
Police statements, witness statements, photographs, and medical evaluation
records can all be used to establish liability and ensure that you receive
the compensation that you deserve.
Why won't the insurance company pay me what I deserve?
Insurance companies are businesses. Their end goal is to make money, and
one of the best ways to do so is to deny as many claims and minimize as
much compensation as possible. Many individuals are surprised when their
insurance company denies their claim or offers less than the individual
thinks they deserve, but most people don't fight it. Insurance companies
try to trick or persuade people into thinking they are receiving the highest
amount possible, or that their policy doesn't cover their damages
when it actually does. The Soileau Law Firm, P.C. will not stand for this
and can stand up to the insurance company on your behalf to demand the
compensation that you deserve under your policy
