Experienced Representation for Your Personal Injury Case
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common reasons for serious personal injuries. If you or a loved one has been involved in one of these incidents, you should obtain legal counsel as soon as possible. We will handle the complexities of insurance paperwork and accident reconstruction. Then you can focus on healing, both physically and emotionally.
Drunk driving is a common cause of auto accidents. Drunk drivers often travel at high speeds and display complete disregard for traffic laws. Therefore, victims are at a much greater risk for severe injury and even death. If you were involved in an accident with a drunk driver, you are likely entitled to significant compensation. This may be the case even if alcohol was not the only contributing factor.
Drivers have a responsibility to pay close attention to their surroundings. Engaging in other activities behind the wheel puts everyone on the road at risk. Common distractions include texting, talking on the phone, adjusting the radio, eating, and putting on makeup. If a distracted driver caused your accident, we will fight for the compensation you deserve.
When a bicycle collides with a motor vehicle, even a small one, the bicyclist can receive serious injuries. Louisiana follows a pure comparative fault rule, which means that even if a victim is partly at fault for an accident, if another party is somewhat at fault, the victim can recover damages from that party. With the help of our experienced bicycle accident attorneys, you can focus on healing while we expertly handle your case.

Even with the many known dangers of working on construction sites, it is still the responsibility of management and ownership to maintain safety rules, precautions, and a safe work environment for their employees.
