Personal injury is a type of tort law that deals with negligence and liability. If you were injured in an accident due to the negligence of another, you (plaintiff) can bring a law suit (tort) against the person or business (defendant) who was responsible for your injuries. You and your loved ones may be eligible for financial reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses. An Opelousas Personal Injury Attorney can file your claim, prove that your injury was caused by negligence, and fight insurance companies to ensure you receive fair compensation. Insurance companies will work to protect their interests and fight for the lowest settlement amounts possible. Working with our experienced Opelousas personal injury lawyers familiar with Louisiana law will make all the difference in your case. Contact The Law Offices of L.
