PERSONAL INJURY

If you are hurt in a car wreck, by a slip and fall, or any other way through someone else’s negligence, things can change in a split second. Your injury could leave you suffering through pain, medical bills, lost wages, and so much more. All of this is due to the carelessness of someone else. We believe that you shouldn’t have to go through this alone, so we are here to fight for you.

FAMILY LAW

When a couple separates or divorces, the law governs custody of children, child support and the support of a needy spouse. The law also governs the division of marital property and marital debt. There are laws that determine when you may divorce, the procedure you must follow, and what proof you need. We are ready to assist you.

Succession law

Creating a basic estate plan can save your family the burden of making important decisions should you become incapacitated or after you pass away. Having a plan in place now offers you the best chance of ensuring that your wishes regarding the distribution of your assets or medical care will be followed.

Causes of Vehicle Accidents

Causes of Vehicle Accidents

The risk of an accident is an unfortunate part of life on the road, even for the most experienced and careful drivers. You can take all of the available precautions and still end up in a crash for a number of reasons. Some of the most common causes of accidents include:

Drinking and Driving

Speeding

Failure to Signal Turns and/or Lane Changes

Disregarding Traffic Lights and Street Signs

Distracted Driving

Inclement Weather

Hazardous Road Conditions

Defective Vehicles and/or Parts

The money damages typically available in Louisiana car accident cases include compensation for property damage and the cost of repairing or replacing the vehicle, as well as medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages due to time away from work while recuperating. In the tragic event that a person is killed in an accident, his or her family has the right to seek similar compensation for wrongful death.

A person seeking compensation from another individual or entity for injuries caused in an auto accident typically needs to show that the person or entity was negligent. To prove negligence, you have to show that the person or entity violated what courts and lawyers call a “duty of care,” that their actions or inactions caused the crash and you were injured as a result.

Individuals injured in an auto accident have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit for compensation. That is why it is important to speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after an accident. We provide free consultations for personal injury cases.

Getting compensation for car accident injuries can also require a significant amount of haggling with insurance companies, both your own and that of the person or entity responsible for the crash. It is vital to understand insurers’ obligations before signing off on any agreements with an insurance company.
