Louisiana Injury Defense Attorneys
"Tort" is the legal term for actions or activities that result in an injury or harm constituting the basis for a claim by the injured party. Injuries can be physical, monetary and emotional. The injured party can bring a lawsuit to stop the activity (an injunction) or to recover money. The money recovered in a lawsuit is referred to as damages.
Tort damages include reimbursement for loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and reasonable medical expenses. Damages can be recovered for current injuries and losses from the injury that can be expected in the future.
