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.

Do I Have a Case?
Many people wonder if a lawyer can help them recover the money they need after being injured. The truth is, a lawyer will only be able to help if you have a case, and because each situation is unique, it’s imperative to call us as soon as you can. Let’s look at a few factors our attorneys will go over with you in your free case review to help you determine if you have a case and your next best steps.
Each state sets a time limit on an injured person’s legal ability to seek compensation for their injury-related expenses. This time limit is called a statute of limitations. In the state of Louisiana, the statute of limitations for a personal injury is one year from the date of the accident. However, there can be exceptions to this law based on your unique circumstances. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced Livingston Parish personal injury lawyer on your side who can ensure you don’t miss any important deadlines.

What Compensation am I Entitled to Recover?
Suffering an injury in an accident can lead to a lot of different expenses. If it can be proven that someone else’s careless actions caused the accident, you’re entitled to compensation for all the expenses related to the accident. These may include:
- Medical bills for hospitalization, medication, and physical therapy
- Lost income for medical treatment or lost future wages from disability
- The costs of living with a temporary disability or permanent disability
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses in the case of wrongful death
Whatever you lost from the time you were injured until the time you’ve healed, we’re here to help you recover. We’ll go to bat for your rights and help you seek the maximum amount of compensation possible for your losses.

Frequently Asked Questions
The statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit is one year after the injury. If you miss this deadline, you may lose your right to file a lawsuit for compensation. If you think you may have already surpassed the statute of limitations, give our experienced attorneys a call for a free case review. We’ll help you determine your next best steps.
In some cases, the statute of limitations is “paused” due to extenuating circumstances. These may include accident injuries that involve a minor or an accident that resulted from a defective product, as this may be more difficult to identify the initial cause. Contact our attorneys to learn more in a free case review.
In personal injury cases, the damages are the dollar amount you receive for medical expenses and other losses. In Louisiana, the amounts you’re eligible to receive have “caps” or limits. Louisiana caps damages for medical malpractice at $500,000, for example. When you sit down with your attorney to discuss your case, they will lay out all of your options so you have a clear idea of what you’re signing up for.
In Louisiana, strict liability refers to the damages caused by persons or animals for whom we are answerable. This is most commonly associated with dog bite cases. In most states, dog owners are protected from responsibility the first time their dog bites or attacks someone. In Louisiana, owners are strictly liable for a dog bite or attack, regardless of the animal’s past behavior.
Negligence is the failure to use a reasonable amount of care that leads to someone else’s injury. A personal injury claim requires proving that the at-fault party was careless and that this led to the accident and your injuries. You also need to prove that the injuries resulted in medical expenses or loss of wages.
