Accidents change lives. One moment you are healthy and working to provide for your family; the next, you are hurting and are unable to return to your job. What’s equally hard is that every day of work you miss makes it that much harder to handle both the medical bills piling up because of the accident, and all of the other obligations that you were able to honor without a problem before you were hurt.

And in these times, it is best to seek out guidance from experienced counsel who understand what you’re going through and have the professional knowledge to insure that the right steps are taken to protect you when you need it most.

A person injured by the careless actions of another party may file a lawsuit based on negligence, which is the most common theory of recovery in personal injury lawsuits in Louisiana. The victim can prevail and hold the defendant liable by successfully proving each of the following four elements:
- The defendant owed the victim a duty of reasonable care;
- The defendant breached that duty;
- The breach caused the victim’s injury; and
- The victim suffered damages as a result of the injury.
Because of your accident, you may be eligible to recover money damages. Specifically, under Louisiana law, you may be entitled to compensation for your past and future medical bills; past and future lost earnings; loss of future earning capacity; and pain and suffering associated with the losses you have suffered. If you were injured as the result of a drunk driver or you were hurt offshore, you may be entitled to damages designed to punish the defendants for their reckless and wanton ways. Irrespective of how you or your loved one was hurt—offshore, in an auto accident, or a helicopter crash—let Broussard & David, LLC obtain justice for you and get you and your family the compensation that is deserved.Aggressive Legal Representation for Accident Victims in Louisiana
