FAQS

When you are hurt in a motor vehicle accident, workplace injury, medical mistake, or any other type of serious injury that was not your fault, you will be faced with many important questions that demand immediate attention.

At Gauthier Amedee, we are happy to provide injured Louisiana residents with a confidential and no-obligation consultation about their case absolutely FREE when they call us at 225-647-1700.

However, if you feel that you would like more information before calling the experienced Louisiana Personal Injury attorneys of Gauthier Amedee, we have provided answers to some of our most frequently asked questions below.

 

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

The simple answer to this question is that a serious injury can impact anyone, and in a majority of cases, injured people do not have time to prepare for the consequences of an unexpected accident. We purchase insurance coverage with the belief that it will help protect us and our families during these times of hardship, but unfortunately, that is not always the reality.

Insurance companies say they are there to protect you, but the only thing they really care about protecting is their company’s bottom line. The job of an insurance adjuster is to review every detail of your case and deduct expenses that the insurance company is not liable to pay. That means that they make their living by ensuring that you get the minimum amount of compensation possible after an accident.

At Gauthier Amedee, our mission is the complete opposite. We stand up to insurance companies and fight to get you every penny of monetary compensation that is available after an accident. If you deal with the insurance companies on your own after an accident without the help of an experienced Personal Injury attorney, you could end up receiving a fraction of what you deserve to help cover the costs of medical bills, property damage, lost wages and pain & suffering.

You’ve already been injured in an accident that was not your fault. Don’t get hurt twice by letting the insurance company withhold the money you deserve. Call Gauthier Amedee and we will aggressively defend your rights in order to secure the maximum compensation.


How Can Injured People Recover The Compensation They Deserve?

A Personal Injury claim is a complex process that demands the full attention of a dedicated and experienced legal team. At Gauthier Amedee, our attorneys will make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve after an accident by performing a detailed evaluation of your case.

No piece of information about your accident or injury is too small for our experienced legal team, and we fight to uncover every detail that may help establish the value of your case.

You should never let the insurance company determine the value of your injury claim without first seeking the counsel of the experienced Personal Injury attorneys at Gauthier Amedee. We will work with you to formulate a plan of attack that will get you the maximum compensation for your injuries.


How Much Is My Case Worth?

For most types of Personal Injury claims, the value of a case depends largely on three main factors:

  • Liability: Who is responsible for causing the accident? Did someone else’s negligence allow an accident or dangerous situation to take place? Establishing liability is the first major hurdle you and your legal team need to complete in order to win your case and establish the value of your claim.
  • Damages: After an accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation to help cover the costs of more than just your immediate injuries. Did your injuries cause permanent disability or major adjustments to the lifestyle of you or your family? Did your injuries cause you to miss time at work and forego the wages you would have collected during that period? If so, you may also be eligible to collect compensation for the costs of all future medical care and future lost income.
  • Source of Payment: Who will ultimately be responsible for paying your damages and financial compensation? Often, this question is closely connected with determining who is liable for your injuries.

After Gauthier Amedee evaluates all of the evidence surrounding your case, we will be able to provide a more accurate and specific estimate about what your case may be worth.

Whether your injuries were caused by a negligent driver, workplace supervisor, doctor, or property owner, the attorneys at Gauthier Amedee will help you get to the bottom of your claim and determine exactly how much you should receive in damages.
