Personal Injury in Louisiana

The personal injury attorneys at Vilar & Green successfully help people recover damages for all types of injuries caused in auto and 18-wheeler accidents, electrocutions, work place accidents, slip and falls, and medical malpractice.
We help the victims of someone else’s negligence recover damages for their physical, psychological and economic injuries.  

What are your damages in a personal injury claim?

Having the right attorney as early in the process as possible can help you begin the road to recovery immediately.  Every case is different.  The damages you are entitled to recover will vary depending on the type of accident you endured, the duration of your injuries, how long you were unable to work, whether you can work in the future and your life circumstances both before and after you were injured.    

Damages commonly include: past, present and future pain and suffering; past and future medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of earnings capacity (inability to work in the future). 

Many attorneys devote much of their time establishing the other party’s negligence.   While it is necessary to prove that the defendant is legally responsible, an experienced attorney will also remain focused on your injuries, your pain and suffering and the toll your injuries have had on you and your family.  We can help throughout this process.  We use our extensive litigation experience, our knowledge of defendant and insurance company tactics, and our skills in settlement negotiation to obtain the best possible recovery for our clients.

Legal representation tailored to your individual needs.

The attorneys at Vilar & Green provide personalized guidance every step of the way.  You will be fully informed from start to finish.  Our attorneys consult with knowledgeable and respected experts to assist with case preparation.  With the support of physicians, trauma doctors, chiropractors, engineers, accident reconstruction analysts, accountants and other specialists, we take the steps necessary to put your case in the best possible position to maximize your recovery. 

Time is limited to protect your claim

Louisiana law limits the length of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit.  If your claim is not filed within the mandatory deadlines, you will likely lose your right to recover for your injuries.  We will investigate your claim immediately, help determine the applicable deadline for filing your claim, and will work to secure valuable evidence so that it remains available for use at trial.
