A lawsuit has been filed against Parking Management Services Inc. after a woman was injured while picking up her vehicle from valet parking. Bridget Salela filed the suit for a 2013 injury which she claims caused her severe damages. The incident occurred at the parking lot of the New Orleans’ Doubletree hotel.
Salela was retrieving her vehicle from valet when she reports she warned the attendant to refrain from opening her trunk. She then claims that the attendant did not heed her persistent warnings and a spare car battery stored in her trunk slammed onto her foot as a result.
Salela reports that the company’s negligence caused serious injury. The plaintiff has accused the company of several things including failing to properly train employees and failure to take reasonable actions to prevent objects from falling from the vehicle. As of now, the victim is seeking compensation for the permanent injuries she sustained. She is suing for suffering, medical bills, permanent disability, disfigurement, mental anguish and emotional distress.
When a person sustains an injury, lives can be changed in the blink of an eye. Irreversible damages can result after injuries are sustained. Often times, legal needs can be lost during the time of an injury, as everyone’s time and energy is consumed with making sure the injured party is taken care of medically. Although the well being of the victim is priority, this can cause problems getting the money necessary for fair compensation.
Personal injury claims can only be filed a set amount of time after an accident. It is important to hire an attorney who is well versed in personal injury proceedings. Attorneys can often times take the proper steps to get victims the compensation they rightfully deserve.
An attorney can help build your case and come up with reasonable compensation for injuries. In Louisiana, personal injury victims are entitled to money for medical expenses, lost wages, and future lost earnings. Additionally, pain and suffering compensation may be available to the injured party. The family of the victim may also be entitled to damages for losses. If a party’s intentional bad conduct caused injuries, then the victim can be awarded compensatory in any amount a jury sees fit.
