Personal Injury Attorneys New Orleans, Louisiana
What is the difference between Personal Injury law and other types of law?
Personal injury law is specifically tailored to seek compensation for injuries or damages suffered by an individual due to another party's negligence or misconduct. It is civil law, distinct from criminal law, which aims to penalize the wrongdoer. While both can coexist in cases like drunk driving accidents, personal injury law focuses on helping the victim recover losses, which can be both economic (like medical bills) and non-economic (like pain and suffering).
What are the different types of Personal Injury accidents?
Personal injuries can be categorized into various types based on their cause and nature:
Motor Vehicle Accidents: Involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other modes of transportation.
Medical Malpractice: Stemming from medical errors like misdiagnosis, surgical mistakes, or improper treatment.
Slip and Fall Accidents: Occurring due to unsafe premises, often involving property owners' negligence.
Workplace Injuries: Resulting from unsafe work environments or negligence on the part of employers or coworkers.
Product Liability: Injuries caused by defective or poorly designed products.
Wrongful Death: Cases involving fatal outcomes due to someone else’s negligence or intentional acts.

A Proven Reputation
"Forrest Cressy James is an amazing law firm that provides tremendous attention and care to all their clients and their needs.
When I was injured in my accident, Nick was never more than a call away from answering my questions and counseling through the process of rehab, recovery, and gaining restitution. I never once felt as if I was just another customer and instead felt like I was a friend and family member who they were willing to fight for to the end.
FCJ will always be the most trusted firm in my book."
“After trying to handle my personal injury claim on my own, and becoming completely overwhelmed, I reached out to Byron for assistance.
My claim was resolved quickly for well over six figures and most importantly, I had peace-of-mind in knowing that I wasn’t taken advantage of by insurance companies.
If you want a law firm that is professional, efficient, and treats you like a person, not just a “file number,” Forrest Cressy James is your team."
"I have had at least two occasions with accidents where the other drivers were not honest with their insurance company. It’s a situation police don’t always have time for right away, and my city has tourists that will treat it as if it never happened.
I can honestly say I didn’t have any stress in the cases. Not from the insurance companies (mine and theirs) and most importantly no pressure from my attorneys.
There was never a moment I felt alone in this. A+ from start to end. I ended up recovering $150,000 thanks to Byron and Eliza."
