What is a personal injury?
Personal injury is when
a 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 personal injury 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
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.
How do you prove liability?
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
