Metairie, New Orleans’ Favorite Neighborhood

Metairie, proudly known as New Orleans’ first suburb, is located in Jefferson Parish, adjacent to New Orleans. Named one of the best 50 cities in the country, this community offers residents and visitors a perfect balance between big city amenities and small town relaxation.

This family-friendly suburb has plenty to do, whether you want to relax in one of its many parks or seek more boisterous entertainment. It’s also a short drive to neighboring New Orleans for those who want a big city experience.

Old Metairie is a quaint area that’s home to historic 1920s homes as well as boutiques and coffee shops. Those looking for a relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon will enjoy strolling along the winding tree-lined streets.

If you’re looking for more active pursuits, then head on over to New Metairie, which offers:

  • The Jefferson Performing Arts Center: This thousand-seat venue puts on concerts, dance recitals, musicals, and more.
  • Shrine on Airline: The 10,000 seat minor league baseball stadium offers visitors VIP suites, a pool, and fireworks shows.
  • Lakeside Shopping Center: If you’re looking for a one-stop entertainment destination, this shopping mall has it all, in the form of over 100 shops and eateries, a play area for the kids, and live events.

It would be remiss not to include the phenomenal cuisine available in Metairie, from Parran’s seafood muffaletta po’ boys to R&O’s roast beef: this neighborhood has some of the best food in the New Orleans area. Be sure to head to Casey’s or Sal’s after your meal for a sno-ball.

Personal Injury Settlements in Metairie

If you’re involved in an accident in Metairie, LA, that’s not your fault, you might be entitled to a settlement to cover the cost of any bodily injuries you sustain. A personal injury or car accident settlement may include everything from medical bills to rehabilitative therapy and wages lost, provided you have sufficient proof that:

A knowledgeable Metairie personal injury attorney will be able to walk you through the injury or car accident settlement process to make it as stress-free and efficient as possible.

Whether you have a concussion from a slip and fall accident or a herniated disc caused by a collision, a Metairie personal injury attorney can help you:

  • Gather evidence like witness statements, medical bills, and even medical experts
  • Negotiate with insurance companies
  • File required paperwork within required timeframes

 

How Is Personal Injury Defined in Metairie, Louisiana?

In Metairie, personal injury, including car accidents, is defined by four elements. Those four elements make up a legal concept that’s required for you to have a successful legal claim. That concept is known as negligence or fault. The four elements are:

For example, all drivers have a legal duty to devote their full time and attention to the road.

The most common form of distracted driving is using a cell phone while driving a car. This breaches the duty that a driver has to pay full attention to the road.

For example, if the driver was staring at their cell phone, ran a red light, and plowed into the side of your car, while you were lawfully in the intersection, the breach of duty is the cause of the accident. This is often called the but-for test. But-for the driver of the other car being on their cell phone, they wouldn’t have ran the red light and hit your car.

Common damages in personal injury cases include but are not limited to: property damage, physical injuries, pain and suffering, and loss of wages. This is a list of the most commonly awarded damages. However, damages are considered on a case-by-case basis. If you’re hurt in Metairie, Louisiana or surrounding areas, immediately contact an experienced personal injury law firm or car accident lawyer.

Protecting Your Potential Legal Claim

No one leaves their home planning to be an accident victim. Unfortunately, it happens. Most car accidents happen within 20 minutes of your home. Slip and falls are more common than you’d think, too. Then, of course, there are on-the-job injuries. Being unable to work and dealing with unexpected medical bills can put you in a serious financial bind. To protect your potential legal claim as a Metairie accident victim:

If you’re involved in a car accident, call the police. The police will come to the scene and make a report. If you’re hurt on someone’s property, alert the property owner or manager about the accident and ask for an accident report. If you’re hurt on the job, tell your supervisor right away and complete a report. Make sure that you get a report number so that you can get a copy of the report to provide to the insurance company and your lawyer.

If you have a medical emergency, call 911.

One of the best ways to do this is to use your smartphone and take photos. You could take photos of what caused the accident, such as a wet floor without warning signs, broken sidewalk, or a dangerous work condition. If you’re in a car accident you should take photos of the vehicles involved. You should also take photos of the condition of the street where the accident happened. Finally, make sure that you take photos of your injuries.

Regardless of the cause of the accident, get medical care. Go and see your personal doctor or to an urgent care clinic to make sure that you’re not seriously hurt. Minor injuries can get worse if they’re left untreated. It could take hours before you realize that you’re hurt because of the adrenaline from the accident.

Don’t wait to call a lawyer. Under Louisiana law, you only have one year from the date of the accident to file your claim. A lawyer has one job: looking out for what’s in your best interest.
