We will take the time to explain your legal options so that you can make an informed legal decision.

What Damages Can I Seek?

If you suffer a personal injury at the hands of a negligent individual, you may be entitled to many different forms of compensation in Louisiana. For instance, depending on the circumstances, you may be able to seek damages for the following:

  • Medical expenses, both past and future
  • Lost wages, including ongoing lost income and loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional or mental distress
  • Scarring or disfigurement
