Compassionate Personal Injury Representation
Accidents and injuries can take a significant toll on their victims, both physically and emotionally — not to mention the enormous medical costs they frequently entail, as well as the costs associated with damage to the vehicle and/or personal property. For many victims, these losses can prove devastating and significantly affect their quality of life. If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to recover for your damages through a personal injury suit. Some of the most common personal injury cases we handle include:
- Car accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Dog bites
- Wrongful death
When you partner with a New Orleans personal injury lawyer at Bloom Legal, you can rest assured that we will vigorously advocate for your interests and seek the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. We handle all aspects of the personal injury litigation process, including evaluating your case to determine the strength of a potential claim, coordinating with your healthcare providers, valuing your losses, gathering evidence that is most favorable to you, investigating the events that gave rise to your claim, interviewing witnesses, and negotiating settlements on your behalf. While most personal injury matters are settled without the need to go to court, we also have extensive experience representing personal injury plaintiffs at trial. If you have already received a settlement offer, we can also help you determine whether you should accept it or fight for higher compensation.
