Our Monroe LA Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You After an Accident

Nearly every personal injury case involves the law of negligence. A person can be held to be negligent when he or she fails to act as an ordinary and reasonable prudent person would act under the same or similar circumstance.

Damages

Hudson Potts & Bernstein will typically seek the following types of damages on behalf of a client:

  • Past and future medical bills.

The Other Insurer

After it learns of a possible personal injury claim against its policyholder, an opposing insurer might go to great lengths to push all or some of the blame onto the victim in an effort to try and devalue his or her case. Don’t give a statement of any kind to the other insurer. Louisiana law doesn’t require you to do that, and you’ll likely hurt your case.
