You Deserve Compensation for Each of Your Injury-Related Losses
Financial recovery in your case could account for:
The force of impact from your bicycle accident may have left you with costly medical bills. You shouldn’t have to pay for those expenses; the other party should. A settlement could account for:
- Follow-up appointments
- Imaging scans
- Physical therapy
- Medical equipment, such as a wheelchair
We will consult with your healthcare team to determine the value of your past, present, and future medical needs. That way, when your case concludes, you’re not left with any out-of-pocket expenses.
Property Damage Costs
If your bike and other personal property were damaged in the accident, we can include those losses in your claim. Compensation could account for your property’s repair or replacement costs.
Lost Job-Related Benefits
The accident may have affected your ability to work, causing you to use personal time off or even stop working altogether. By consulting with professionals in your field of employment (and reviewing your employment records), we can seek compensation for lost:
We can also seek any harm to your earning capacity.
Non-Economic Damages, Including Pain and Suffering
Our team understands that your losses extend beyond your financial hardships. We know your accident and injuries affect each corner of your life—and you deserve compensation for that. Non-economic damages account for these challenges and include:
- Pain and suffering
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
Louisiana does not cap how much one can seek for non-economic damages. We will base these losses’ value based on your injuries’ severity and quality of life–among other factors. You don’t have to do any guesswork when it comes to your case’s value.
Wrongful Death-Related Damages

- Funeral and burial costs

We Will File Your Lawsuit in Accordance with Louisiana’s Filing Deadline
According to CC Art. 3492, you generally have one year to file your injury lawsuit in Louisiana. If you miss the deadline, the state will bar you from seeking compensation, leaving you with various injury-related losses.
Our team resolves many bicycle accident cases through insurance settlements. This involves negotiating with claims adjusters, among other obligations. However, if the insurer refuses to offer a settlement, we may file a lawsuit. In that case, we need as much time as possible to investigate your situation, file your case, and advocate for what you need.
They treated us like no other people would. Whenever we needed something they were there for us. I put my trust in them and I don’t regret it.Client
