Recoverable Damages in a Jefferson Parish Personal Injury Case
Personal injury cases have a wide range of causes. Yet, at the heart of each one is another party’s negligence. That is, a disregard for laws, rules, or reasonable actions meant to keep everyone safe. If our team can prove negligence occurred, the at-fault party may be legally obligated to pay our client’s expenses and losses. This often includes:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future income loss
- Property damage or loss
- Physical pain and suffering
- Physical disability or impairment
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Wrongful death damages if your family member died from their injuries
If you hire our team, one of Jefferson Parish attorneys will value your claim by carefully reviewing your injury-related expenses, bills, and estimates. This is the first step to negotiating compensation that seeks a fair payout based on your damages. You can count on our law office to ensure your compensation claim is not undervalued or underpaid.

Our Team Assigns Financial Liability on Grand Isle
When our personal injury attorney represents clients in a negligence case, we find out what happened. We also determine who is at fault and build a claim against that party or parties. This is true in any type of personal injury case, including:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Dog bites or attacks
- Premises liability incidents
- Defective devices
- Maritime injuries
- Dangerous drugs
- Wrongful death
It can be stressful and challenging to accurately identify the person responsible for your injuries and related expenses. We will seek a monetary award based on the injuries you endured and the losses you incurred while you take care of your physical and mental healing.
After we identify the at-fault party, we will help you build, file, and negotiate your claim. To support your case, protect your rights, and develop your case, we will:
- Read and review relevant police and incident reports
- Identify, locate, and interview accident witnesses
- Provide you with regular case updates
- Obtain, complete, and submit required forms and paperwork
- Prove the value of your damaged or destroyed property
- Manage all case-related communications
- Represent your best interests to the insurer or at trial
You don’t Have to Pay Up Front for Us to Start Working on Your Case
After an injury, you need time to recuperate. While you concentrate on getting better, we work on your compensation claim and focus on building your case. However, we are always available to our clients if they have questions or concerns or want an update on their case.
The Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers team works on contingency. We do not ask for a retainer or charge any other fees upfront. Instead, we bill the client only after their case ends. We get our attorney fees from the settlement or other monetary recovery we secure, never from their bank account.

We Create Comprehensive Case Files to Support Our Clients’ Claims
We must show specific elements are present to prove negligence occurred and that another party is legally responsible for your Jefferson Parish injuries. We will help you establish:
- The at-fault party in your injury case owed you a duty of care.
- They breached their responsibility.
- Their breach of duty led to your injuries.
- Their actions that led to your injuries cost you financially.
Once we establish these four elements of negligence and have the necessary evidence to support your claim, we need to prove the consequences you suffered as a result. This should be enough evidence to make a convincing argument to the insurance company that its policyholder is liable. If not, we can take the evidence to civil court and ask a judge and jury to decide who is liable and how much your injuries are worth.
Some of the most common evidence in a personal injury case file includes:
- Police and incident reports
- Proof of income loss
- Impartial witness statements
- Pictures of your injuries and property damage
- Expert statements
- Surveys of the incident site
- Video of your injuries occurring
- Your relevant medical records
Your case file will show that the accident led to your injuries and can help establish the at-fault party’s liability. It may also allow us to identify additional liable parties in these cases. A personal injury claim uses impartial evidence to prove negligence, liability, and our client’s right to pursue a settlement or other compensation.

Physical and Financial Recovery From Injuries Takes Time
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), your personal injury claim is more likely to end with an insurance settlement than a trial. Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers often reaches an acceptable settlement agreement with the at-fault party or their insurance provider in these cases.
If we cannot, we take our compensation fight to trial to seek the monetary award you deserve. Our trial lawyers are ready and willing to represent you in the courtroom if needed.
Act Quickly to Preserve Your Right to Sue
You must comply with the relevant statute of limitations to preserve your right to file a lawsuit in Jefferson Parish. According to CC Art. 3492, you generally have only a year to sue the liable parties in a personal injury case.
We must file personal injury lawsuits in a timely fashion. We can help you eliminate the risk of running out of time, protecting your rights. Our team will work hard to prepare and file your suit on time and ensure outright dismissal of your case due to an expired statute of limitations.
