Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury

No one is ever ready for a serious accident, which is why you probably have numerous questions running through your head about personal injury claims and how to get compensation.

The Soileau Law Firm, P.C. serves to assist accident victims in obtaining the compensation that they deserve for all types of accidents and personal injury. Our legal team has extensive experience and knowledge, giving us the ability to answer any questions you may have. We can help you file a strong claim and can fight the insurance companies for the compensation you deserve.

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 injury claim.

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 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.

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
