At Clay Dugas and Associates, we understand that our clients often come to us immediately after a life-changing event. Any type of accident could leave you struggling physically, emotionally, and mentally – but the financial burden that comes along with an unexpected injury can take a huge toll on your peace of mind.

If you were involved in an accident, do not assume that your insurance company will be looking out for your best interests. These corporate entities are preoccupied with doing whatever is needed to cushion their profit, which means you could be getting a low-ball offer for your settlement. Do not accept anything less than what you truly deserve.

Get the Answers You Need

  • Who will be held accountable for my accident?

    Answer:

    If you were injured in an accident caused by no fault of your own, or if a loved one has been wrongfully killed due to another party’s negligent or reckless behavior, then you could be eligible to file a claim and pursue financial compensation under your State’s personal injury laws. Different parties can be held responsible for an accident that resulted in injury, including individuals (like a reckless driver) or a corporate entity (such as a corporation or agency).

  • What is liability and what does it mean?

    Answer:

    In order to pursue a claim under your State’s personal injury laws, you will most likely need to prove “liability.” Liability simply refers to the at-fault party involved in the accident. Once a liable party has been identified, it will be responsible for covering the damages that resulted from the accident. Determining liability, however, can be a complex process and will often hinge on proving “negligence.”

  • What is negligence and what does it prove?

    Answer:

    In addition to identifying the at-fault party, you will also need to be able to prove “negligence.” In the most general sense, negligence refers to whether or not a person has acted outside of the scope of reasonable care to prevent injury or harm to another person. Speak with an attorney to determine what evidence is needed to prove that the party’s negligence directly resulted in the injury or property damage.

  • How much is my case worth?

    Answer:

    Every case is different and to give a ballpark value could actually be counterproductive. Every case must be carefully assessed: there are many working parts in a personal injury matter and we would be happy to determine how those working parts can increase or diminish the potential value of your claim. Things like negligence, liability, injury severity, property damage, and more can all be relevant factors when determining the potential value.
