No. You pay only if and when your case is resolved favorably. The Burrell Firm LLC deals with personal injury cases on a 100% contingency fee basis. Our law firm is compensated only if we obtain a financial recovery for you.
In Louisiana, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is one year from the date of the accident. For medical malpractice, the period is a bit tricky. You should consult with a lawyer ASAP after an incident so that you can preserve your right to be made whole.
You will meet with our team to discuss together what would be best for you and your family. The decision will ultimately be your decision to make. Our team will certainly advise you throughout the process and, through our experience, help you make the best decision for you and your case.

A: To recover damages as a result of an accident or medical malpractice in Louisiana you must have suffered an injury to your person or property as the result of someone else’s negligence. The person or company who caused the harm must be at fault for the accident.

It’s not enough that the other person was ticketed for the accident. The at-fault party’s insurance company has a right, which they typically exercise, to investigate an accident on their own and choose whether or not they will voluntarily pay for the damages. Medical malpractice is different.

Not only must the medical professional be at fault, but Louisiana has also enacted the Medical Malpractice Act which requires the complaining party to assert such claim within 1 year to a medical review panel. Only after presenting the case to the medical review panel can you then file suit. The MMA also limits recovery to $500,000.

Wrongful Death

The family members or the estate of a person who was killed due to recklessness or negligence can sue the liable party in civil court. These damages aren’t to put a value on human life lost.

Rather, damages family members can sue for are the loss of wages and benefits that were to be earned had the victim lived, and emotional pain and suffering as a consequence of the loss.

Typical Injuries That Result from Accidents & Negligence

In a personal injury case, the severity of one’s injuries varies greatly depending on the incident, but typically they include head and neck injuries, joint issues, and pain and suffering—both physical and mental.

Common injuries in personal injury cases include:

Head and neck injuries encompass everything from whiplash to paralysis, concussion to coma. Even if you were involved in a minor accident, it’s important to get checked out by a medical professional, as whiplash and concussions can be particularly dangerous if left untreated, but often have no initial symptoms.

Pain and suffering resulting from an accident or negligent act can include emotional and mental anguish.

If your accident left you unable to enjoy activities with your family, makes it physically impossible for you to continue in a career you found fulfilling, or caused you to suffer from depression or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), then you should talk to your personal injury attorney about these non-economic damages.

What Makes An Excellent Personal Injury Attorney

A New Orleans personal injury lawyer at a small firm and with a deep connection to the area will treat you with the compassion and respect you deserve. The risk of choosing an attorney at a large firm is that the client becomes a case number. At those firms, when clients call in to check on the status of their case or to submit updated documents, you will speak to a legal aid rather than your own attorney. We have worked closely with hundreds of scared, confused, and frustrated clients who are seeking to sue for lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical treatment. We take pride in helping people in need get justice and move on with their lives. This is why we will always take the time to listen to you.
