Truck Accidents

Trucks have the potential to cause catastrophic damage in the event of a crash. The results of a truck accident of any size include huge medical and repair bills, loss of income due to injury, and often tragic fatalities.

In most truck accident cases, the victim needs to fight large trucking conglomerates for their rightful compensation. This only adds to the hardship of your recovery.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists face dual disadvantages on the roadway. Not only are motorcycles less visible, but their riders are also always less protected than car or truck motorists.

This means even minor accidents can have severe injuries. From totaled vehicles to permanent life-changing injuries, the damage from such an accident can become catastrophic for not just those involved, but their loved ones.

Pedestrian Accidents

Car accidents don’t just happen to motorists. In fact, pedestrians are even more at risk of being involved in a car accident than most drivers. Bundled with gaps in insurance coverage and lack of protection between the pedestrian and the vehicle, even minor pedestrian accident cases are life-altering.

Every year more than 5,000 pedestrians are injured or killed in traffic accidents. And this number doesn’t seem to be dropping anytime soon. Comparing the first six months of 2016 to the same period of 2017, we see these accidents increase by 23.6% alone.

Boat Accidents

With close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, water sports are active nearly year-round and a big part of everyday life for many residents. In fact, many Louisiana natives own their own watercraft.

Boats are almost as common as mainland transportation here. With so many boats on the water, accidents are inevitable. If a boat is far from shore without medical supplies, a boating accident can easily become a life or death situation.

We’ll Hold The Guilty Parties Accountable

In some of the cases handled by our Baton Rouge personal injury attorneys, pure chance or uncontrollable weather were to blame for an accident. However, it is far more likely for these Baton Rouge accidents to have been caused by someone else’s careless or deliberate actions.

Everyone has a duty under the law to follow certain standards of care, and this duty is even stricter in certain industries. Despite this, we’ve seen many guilty parties try to avoid taking responsibility for the injuries they cause.

We won’t let this happen to you. Our Baton Rouge personal injury attorneys can assess whose negligence caused your accident. We’ll talk to multiple parties and begin negotiations on your behalf, so we can secure the maximum possible compensation.

You’ll need to give a statement and take photos of the scene if you are able. You may face unexpected medical bills that cripple you financially. It is often an easier choice to call a Baton Rouge car accident attorney as soon as you are able for a free consultation on your case.

We have litigated for our clients in state court, federal trial courts, and Louisiana appellate courts. We have won verdicts that recovered millions in compensation and are known as the attorneys that aren’t afraid to walk away from a settlement offer that is not favorable for our clients.

Our Personal Injury
Lawyers Will Talk To
Your Insurers

We don’t just handle cases with private individuals and companies. A Baton Rouge lawyer from our firm will readily negotiate with Louisiana insurance companies for you.

Every claim is considered lost income for insurance companies, so many insurers will try to offer the lowest possible offer or deny a claim by blaming you for the accident. But with a Baton Rouge attorney by your side, you’ll be able to provide all the proof you’ll need. When they know you have legal counsel, insurers are less likely to reject your pay-out, and you will be able to claim the maximum you’re entitled to under your policy.

While insurance companies have a responsibility to their policyholders, they’re not as thorough when it comes to assessing claimable damages – especially intangible ones like emotional distress. A Baton Rouge personal injury lawyer from our law firm will be far more determined to win you a higher compensable value.

Trained Litigators And Skilled Negotiators

Our lawyers have repeatedly proven their skill and knowledge in Louisiana courtrooms. They will plan and prepare you for all judicial processes. However, we are just as capable of settling matters out of court for you, which can save you the time and trouble of a court appearance.

Talk to us to find out what your best options are! Whether you plan to file a lawsuit, or prefer to avoid taking it to court, we will help you decide which steps to take to ensure fair compensation.

Baton Rouge Practice Areas: We Handle All Kinds Of Personal Injury Cases

Many Baton Rouge law firms won’t handle cases that don’t involve serious injuries, but our firm will file your personal injury suit regardless of the degree of your damages. Our Baton Rouge personal injury attorneys have years of experience in handling the following kinds of accidents.

  • Boating accidents. Louisiana is full of bodies of water, so boating accidents are frequent and can have devastating consequences.
  • Wrongful death. If your relative or spouse died in an accident, you may be qualified under Louisiana law to file a lawsuit on their behalf.
  • Motorcycle wrecks. Motorcyclists suffer serious injuries if there is a collision, even if they wear helmets. Sometimes a lawsuit is necessary to afford the medical bills.
  • Car accidents. An auto wreck can damage your vehicle and cause permanent injuries.
  • Medical malpractice. Every medical professional is required to observe a certain standard of care towards patients, and they can be held liable for their negligence.
  • Drunk driving accidents. Driving while intoxicated is a crime in Louisiana. The guilty driver can be charged with a DUI and a personal injury suit.
  • Truck accidents. Heavy vehicles cause greater damage to the other driver. Hold the trucking company and driver responsible with our help.
  • Hurricane Damage Claims. In Louisiana, storm damage from hurricanes is almost unavoidable. When your insurance company won't pay out for damages, our property damage claims attorneys are here to help.
  • Slip and fall cases. If a Louisiana business or homeowner did not maintain their property and this caused an accident, you can file personal injury cases against them.
  • Defective products. We can file a lawsuit if a product manufacturer sold a defective product that injured you.
  • Oilfield accidents. Fires, slips, and explosions are just some of the compensable hazards that you can face in a Louisiana oilfield.
  • Workers’ compensation cases. Injured while you were on the job? We’ll negotiate compensation from your employers.
  • Industrial accidents. Failure to observe legal safety standards and provide a safe workplace can make companies and supervisors liable for your injuries.

We Don’t Reject Cases With Contributory Negligence

Many Louisiana accident victims hesitate before filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, even if they should be rightfully compensated. This is because they may also have been careless or have done something to contribute to the accident. If you were also at fault, this is called contributory negligence, and makes you partially liable.

But, this doesn’t mean that you can’t file a successful lawsuit against responsible parties! As long as you were less at fault for what happened, we can still initiate a personal injury case and win your compensation.

All that contributory negligence will do is reduce a certain percentage of the final compensation, depending on how at fault you were. Our personal injury lawyers will keep them from shifting all the blame to you and prove who was responsible for the accident.
