We will be happy to discuss your claim with you and provide you with the information you need to move forward with your case.
How do I pay for legal services?
In Louisiana, personal injury lawyers are usually paid on a contingency fee basis. At The Womac Law Firm, you pay us no fee, no costs, and no expenses, unless we get money for you.
How do I determine what a fair settlement is?
A fair settlement will take into account the current and projected costs for all injury-related expenses, including medical treatment, missing wages, pain and suffering, and more. An attorney will be able to assess the offer made by the insurance company and help you determine whether this amount is fair.
Will I have to go to court?
If the insurance company agrees to pay what you believe your case is worth, and you decide to settle for that amount, then you don't have to go to court. We take going to court very seriously, and we use our on-site, state-of-the-art mock jury courtroom to prepare for trials.
What are general damages?
In Louisiana, general damages can include costs for future mental anguish, future pain and suffering, permanent disability of the body, loss of consortium, and past/future loss of enjoyment of life.
What are special damages?
Louisiana allows injured victims to recover special damages that may include rental expenses, past/future medical costs, past/future loss of wages, loss of earning ability, and property damage.
How do I pay for legal fees?
Most personal injury lawyers in Louisiana take cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that your legal fees come out as a percentage of your financial recovery. At The Womac Law Firm, we do not charge legal fees, costs, or expenses unless we can win money for you.
How do I choose the right personal injury attorney for my case?

Will my personal injury claim go to court?
