Choosing the right personal injury lawyer is the most important decision you will make after you have been injured. You need a lawyer who understands what it takes to get you the best results. When you are involved in an accident the initial inquiry is to determine whether another party may be held liable for your injuries. The fundamental principal of tort liability in Louisiana is that "every act whatever of man that causes damage to another obliges him by whose fault it happened to repair it." C.C. Art. 2315. In order to establish liability, you must prove case-in-fact causation. Under the duty-risk approach to determining tort liability, the court first determines whether the defendant's conduct was a cause-in-fact of the plaintiff's damages. The plaintiff bears the burden of proving a causal relationship between the injuries sustained and the accident at issue. The plaintiff (injured party) must prove causation by a preponderance of evidence.
Causation is often the subject of great debate in personal injury cases. In many cases the defense attorney's for the insurance companies spend tens of thousands of dollars on expert opinion that support's their position.
