         Damages in Louisiana are based upon may factors that must be proven.   You do not receive damages because you were in an accident like many of the television commercials lead you believe.  You must have an injury, seek medical treatment over time and have enough insurance coverage from the other driver to adequately be compensated.  Many times there will be significant injury with minimal insurance and others high limit insurance with minimal injury.    DO NOT BE FOOLED BY TELEVISION ADS.

          Damages are based on what your injury is and its severity. Next whether that injury is caused by the incident you were in.  Also, what length of time and type of treatment you received.  Lastly, how did the injuries effect the aspects of life such as ability to earn a living and support your family.

Louisiana has in only very rare cases punitive or punishment damages.  These would be the excessive awards in other states to punish the defendant.  You may receive damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, future impairment to earn wages, and other categories.  All have to be proven by evidence.  An attorney must help you receive the treatment you need for the injury sustained but also assure that you and your family receive the damages you are entitled too.
