Attorney services in Shreveport Bossier City

What is Personal Injury Law?

You’ve been hurt – physically or psychologically as a result of carelessness of another party. Someone must be held accountable. This is what personal injury law is about. The other party can be a person or a company.

Accidents happen. But not all accidents are personal injury cases. In short, the difference boils down to three issues…

  • Can the defendant be held accountable?
  • Did he/she really overstep the boundary of precaution and safety measures?
  • If so, what are the extent of your injuries?

A personal injury case can be the ultimate result of an automobile accident, a defective product, a bad fall, or a wrongful death.

Auto Accident Attorney​

Liability in an automobile accident is often easy to prove. The at-fault driver is responsible for paying damages to the injured party.

Most people are insured. So, in effect, after a severe car accident, you are likely to enter the bewildering world of insurance claims and settlements. The damages due to you will oftentimes come from that source.

Doug Stinson is an experienced and knowledgeable attorney that deals with these cases every day. Our law office knows about the procedures, laws, and rules that may relate to your situation.

>For instance, there is a limited ‘window of opportunity’ during which a lawsuit can be filed against another person or company. If you miss it, you can’t file a claim against the party ever again and you will receive no compensation.

Insurance companies have seemingly unlimited resources and experience. They don’t want to compensate you. It is imperative to have someone on your side that is ready to fight for you. Stinson Law Firm in Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana, can level the playing field for you.

Truck Accident Attorney

A large truck, out of control, is terrifying and deadly. Truck owners must adhere to a long list of rules and regulations: from licensing to time spent on the road, size- and route limitations and more.

Without the help of a personal injury lawyer, it is almost impossible to know if one (or more) of these regulations have been broken at the time of your accident. You might be entitled to damages that can make your life much more comfortable after a horrifying collision with an 18-wheeler. However, you don’t want to wait long before seeking an attorney. Speak to us to see how we can help you.

Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful death can be anything, from murder to medical malpractice, that leads to the death of another human being. It is when someone died as a result of a negligent (or intentional!) act by someone else.

If you have lost a loved one, we’ll look at the facts of your case and help you decide if you have a feasible claim.

Of course, such a case can never bring your loved one back, but at least you can receive some money to help recover funeral- and medical care expenses as well as loss of income that your loved one provided.

Non-economic damages can also be retrieved in some cases (a jury will decide.) It is, therefore, possible to be compensated for pain and suffering, loss of love, moral support, companionship, and more.

Rely on our experience. We can help protect the interests of you and your family. Call us today for a free consultation about your case in Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is NO FEE UNLESS WE WIN. Stinson Law Firm handles all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you won’t pay a penny unless we win or settle your case. You will not be responsible for any costs, expenses, or legal fees until I recover damages for you.

Free! Consultations are free for all injury cases. You should contact Doug Stinson at Stinson Law Firm and I will conduct a free initial review of your case.

In Louisiana, you have one year from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit or your claim is barred forever. In some cases; however, you are allowed no more than three years to file a lawsuit if you did not discover your injury immediately. This is why it is essential that you seek legal counsel quickly.

Louisiana is a comparative fault state. Thus, someone injured in an accident might still be able to recover a certain percentage of damages regardless if they are partially at fault. In these cases, a judge or jury will determine a percentage of fault to both the plaintiff and the defendant, and the amount of compensation will be decided based on that determination. You should contact Stinson Law Firm to review your case to assist you before deciding on your own that you are solely at fault.

Insurance companies oftentimes make settlement offers soon after your injury. Individuals usually don’t know the full extent of their injuries soon after an accident, which makes it imprudent and unwise to settle a case without an experienced lawyer. There is a reason that insurance companies want to settle with you before you speak to an attorney. Once you settle your case, you are barred from recovering anything forever.
