We Will Prove That Another Party Should Pay For Your Losses
We can’t just request compensation from the liable party and expect your case to be resolved. We must prove that because the at-fault party acted negligently, you deserve financial recovery.
Proving negligence involves showing four elements: duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages.
What Is Duty?
Duty means the other party had a responsibility to act with caution and reasonable prudence. For instance, motorists have a duty of care to drive safely and courteously. Likewise, a company has a duty to provide a safe workplace to its employees.
What Is a Breach of Duty?
When someone violates their duty of care, this means they acted without regard for others’ safety. For example, when a motorist drives while intoxicated, they violate their responsibility to act with care.
What Is Causation?
Causation is tying the breach of duty into the cause of an accident. Going back to the drunk driving example, you would need evidence to show that because the other motorist drove while intoxicated (breaching their duty of care), you were injured.
How do I Prove Damages?
Proving damages means that the plaintiff (you) must show that the accident resulted in damages. Damages can be physical injuries, medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, or any other loss suffered due to the accident.

We Offer Legal Help on a Contingency-fee Basis
Contingency fee agreements are a risk-free way to get legal help without paying anything up front. We will take a percentage of your final settlement as payment for our help. If you don’t recover damages, you don’t pay us anything.
In addition to being risk-free, a contingency-fee agreement also means that you won’t have to cover additional fees associated with your case, such as filing fees or consultations.
Those will be deducted from your final settlement amount also. The process is transparent, and you will know what fees to expect up front. You won’t get any surprises during our partnership – ncluding hidden costs and unexpected bills in the mail.

All states impose a filing deadline on all civil cases. Louisiana has a shorter filing deadline than most states. You don’t have to worry about missing this deadline with our team on your side, however. We will assess your situation, determine how long you have to file a lawsuit, and act accordingly.
