Louisiana Personal Injury Claims
Choosing the Best Venue for Your Lousiana Lawsuit
If you’ve suffered a personal injury in Louisiana, you may need to consider a lawsuit in order to get compensated for your injuries. Feeling overwhelmed or confused about how to go about filing a personal injury lawsuit? That’s where Herman Herman Katz can help. Our experienced New Orleans personal injury lawyers can walk you through the legal process and make the right decisions for your case. Here are some other things to consider when deciding where and how to file a personal injury lawsuit in Louisiana.
Filing in State or Federal Court: A personal injury suit will typically be filed in the venue where the incident occurred. In Louisiana, you can file in state or federal court, depending on the circumstances of your case. If the value of your claim exceeds $75,000 or the claims arise out of federal law or statute, you can file in federal court. Otherwise, you will need to file in state court.

I couldn’t be more thankful for Jed Cain and all the help and information he was able to provide while I was his client. He is very professional and an all around great person to work with. I felt very confident with as his client and couldn’t ask for better representation. I would recommend Jed and this firm to anyone who needs their service.
I was very grateful for this law firm in helping me with my personal injury claim. My attorney (Jed Cain) and paralegal (Erica Smith) were so professional, kind, helpful, and successful at meeting my needs and in achieving my desired outcome. They were organized, patient in answering my many questions, and always willing to help! I’d highly encourage anyone I know to go to them for any legal needs!
Jed and his staff were very understanding. They listened to my family’s concerns, kept us informed, and did whatever they could to help us out. He wasn’t just a lawyer, he treated us like a friend. Everyone of the staff that I had the pleasure of speaking with was helpful and kind. Thanks again Jed for the wonderful support we received.
I had to help select a firm to represent my stepfather after his offshore injury. I was impressed with the response time and also how personable Jed and his partner were. They truly seemed to care how things were handled. They sent a flower arrangement to my stepdad in the hospital. The plant, like my stepfather, are still both alive and well. I hope we never need their services again, but if so, I’d definitely call Jed!
