Dedicated to Quality
We will fight to get the best result for you.
litigating personal injury claims
If you have suffered a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and more. You need an injury attorney on your side. At Petkovich Law Firm, we are experienced at handling injury claims across the state of Louisiana and beyond, so do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation. We have the skills necessary to ensure you get every penny you deserve.
In most cases you have a limited time to file your case. The prescriptive period for most injuries in Louisiana is one year form the date of the accident. Thus, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. If possible, take pictures after your accident, call your insurance company, and get insurance information from the other parties. If possible, wait for an accident report, but if severely injured, seek medical treatment immediately.
Once we have been retained, we will immediately begin gathering the evidence needed for a successful adjudication. We will work with the insurance companies and highlight the strengths of your case. Once your claim is filed in court, we will fight every step of the way to ensure you get the result you deserve. While many cases settle, we will not hesitate to go to trial if the insurance company is unreasonable at the negotiation table.
