What Veron, Bice, Palermo & Wilson, LLC Can Do for You
Accidents are a part of life. Sometimes, they are no one’s fault. However, there are times when injuries happen because someone acts carelessly. Whether a store owner fails to remove a hazard from an aisle or a healthcare professional knowingly uses unsterilized tools, the error can lead to a person’s injury or even death.
It could be challenging trying to prove fault after an accident. You need sufficient evidence showing a person’s actions or lack of action resulted in your injury. It’s crucial to hire a personal injury lawyer immediately to assist you with your case.
When you hire Veron, Bice, Palermo & Wilson, LLC, we can investigate the incident to determine fault. If we discover someone else is responsible for your injury, we will gather all available evidence to prove you’re entitled to compensation.
The evidence we need will depend on the circumstances of your case but could include:
- Copies of liability insurance policies
- Police/incident reports
- Medical records and other documentation showing treatment of the injury
- Statements from eyewitnesses

- Statements from medical providers
- Lost wage reports

We can file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company during our investigation and submit the evidence we find. We will negotiate for a settlement we believe is fair that will cover your total losses.

Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
Although you might know how personal injury cases work, you should never attempt to handle yours alone. Most people think it’s a straightforward process. Unfortunately, it’s more complicated than you might realize. You must collect relevant evidence, follow strict deadlines, and complete confusing paperwork. One mistake could negatively impact the outcome of your case.
Accident victims often believe the insurance company wants to help. However, the adjuster handling your claim likely won’t be on your side. Their goal is to save money by avoiding large settlements. They might offer a low amount and intimidate you into accepting or trick you into saying something they can use to place you at fault. Without an experienced legal team on your side, you could fall for the tactics insurance carriers often use to deny claims.
At Veron, Bice, Palermo & Wilson, LLC, no case is too complex for us to handle. We are ready to take on the responsibility for your claim so you can focus your time and attention on recovering. You shouldn’t face the burden of pursuing legal action when you’re in pain and struggling to heal. Contact us and let us be your advocate and fight for the justice you deserve.
Compensation for an Injury
You have the option of filing an insurance claim or a lawsuit after someone causes your injury. The amount of available compensation depends on the at-fault party’s insurance coverage and a range of other factors.
When you negotiate for an insurance settlement or seek a favorable jury verdict, the money you receive could compensate for losses, such as:
- Mental anguish
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Property damage
If your loved one died in an accident due to someone else’s negligent conduct, you could file a wrongful death lawsuit. A spouse, child, parent, or sibling can recover compensation for losses, such as:
- Grief and anguish
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of companionship, emotional support, care, and guidance
- Lost earnings and benefits
- The value of lost household services
Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
Louisiana law places a strict deadline on filing a personal injury lawsuit. You must file suit in compliance with a one-year statute of limitations. That means you only have a year from the date of the accident to sue the at-fault party in civil court. Once the timeframe passes, you will likely lose your right to pursue compensation through the court system.
