Serious Injuries Cause Serious Problems!


Serious injuries have the potential to cause major disruptions in your life. You can lose your job and suffer monetary damages. You can also experience severe pain, intense suffering, emotional trauma, outrageous medical bills, and PTSD as a result of an injury. These problems can require extensive medical treatment, special care and services, counseling, and numerous other issues.


It can be tempting to take a small settlement from a insurance company, but you should never settle your case unless you’re being fairly compensated for the damages you sustained in the accident. A future financial need or medical bill may arise. If you enter into a settlement agreement without fair compensation it is likely that you will have no recourse. Generally, the most important decision you make after an accident is deciding which lawyer to hire to represent your interest.  The second most important decision you make is whether to settle your case (and for how much).

Chris Faucheux has a long record of success on injury cases. Chris will make sure that your rights are protected and that you receive maximum compensation for your losses.

Personal Attention to your case:


After you are injured in an accident, you don't just need a personal injury lawyer, you need a lawyer who takes your case personal. Many law firms employ dozens of lawyers who glance at your case amidst hundreds of files on their desk. Often times, a paralegal or legal assistant knows more about your case than your lawyer. The disconnect can result in less than desirable results. If you hire Chris Faucheux, Chris guarantees his personal commitment to you and your case. Chris gives his entire professional focus, his complete expertise, and his total commitment to every client who comes through his door. It's that distinct advantage that allows Chris to maximize settlement and trial results for his clients.


The fundamental principle 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." LSA-C.C. Art. 2315. This essentially means that the at-fault party is responsible for any damages they cause when they do not exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. This law is expanded upon in situations involving wrongful deaths. See Louisiana Civil Code Article 2315.2 for more details.

proving Liability in Louisiana

To establish liability in Louisiana, you must prove cause-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 the evidence. This essentially means that it must be more probable that your injuries were caused by the accident than some other underlying cause.
