I cannot recommend Jody Amedee and his staff, April and Krystal, enough. They took great care of me throughout my whole case, eased all of my worries and let me focus on healing. They were extremely fast to respond to every email or call I made to them. I felt like they really cared about me and my husband, and never felt like just another client. They are good people and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone needing Gauthier Amedee’s services.

When your gifts/talents don’t include the legal system, it can be very scary to choose qualified help that you can trust. From the beginning, the staff at Gauthier Amedee (especially Nancy) demonstrated professionalism seasoned with sincere care and compassion. Regardless of the roadblocks we seemed to encounter, they patiently and exhaustively looked for answers. Those answers were found and without this law team that would not have been possible. We are thankful for them and recommend them wholeheartedly.

Do I Have a Case?

Compensable personal injury cases may involve a lot of different types of accidents and injuries, but the one thing they have in common that allows our experienced attorneys to secure settlements is that the accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness or recklessness. Let’s look at a few of the common compensable circumstances we work with to help you determine your next best steps.

The statute of limitations is the time limit for filing a personal injury lawsuit. In Louisiana, the statute of limitations for personal injury is one year from the date of the injury. In other words, you generally have one year from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit for fair compensation. However, there can be exceptions to this law based on your unique circumstances. That’s why it’s important to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can ensure you don’t miss any important deadlines.

  • Loss of current or future wages
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

When you let Gauthier Amedee go to bat for you, you will have an experienced personal injury team working on your behalf for the absolute maximum compensation amount possible. We will go into every detail of your case to ensure we don’t leave a single penny off your claim and fight for your right to the full settlement.

Frequently Asked Questions

While there’s nothing legally stopping you from filing your own personal injury claim or lawsuit, you may be at a disadvantage. A personal injury attorney knows the law, what compensation you may receive, and how to build a strong case on your behalf. Let our experienced attorneys go to bat for you and the full amount of compensation you deserve while you focus on recovering.

If you have a pre-existing condition, you’re still entitled to compensation for your injuries from the accident. However, you may have your compensation reduced or be entitled to more since the accident could have aggravated the condition. One of our Ascension Parish personal injury lawyers can help you understand what you’re entitled to in a free case review.

In some cases, the law imposes limits on the amount of money you may receive for certain types of personal injuries, such as medical malpractice lawsuits or wrongful death lawsuits. In Louisiana, there is a limit of $500,000 for medical malpractice.

Negligence is a legal term that means someone failed to act with an appropriate amount of care, leading to an accident. With personal injury claims, negligence must be proven and a connection between the accident and the injury must be established. Our attorneys are here to put the work in so you don’t have to. We will do everything in our power to prove your injuries were caused by the negligence of someone else so you can secure the settlement you deserve.

Louisiana has a comparative negligence law, which means that you may have your compensation reduced if you were partly at fault for the accident. The court assigns a percentage of fault to you, and your compensation may be reduced by that percentage. That’s why it’s important to let an experienced attorney go to bat for you so you can ensure you are seeking the maximum amount of compensation possible.
