Metairie Lawyers For Car Crashes, Tractor-Trailer Accidents And More

From multi-vehicle collisions on the Pontchartrain Causeway or Interstate 10 to smaller crashes on the Northshore or in Metairie or the Westbank, our law firm is available to represent clients in a wide array of motor vehicle accident cases, including:

  • Car accidents: Texting while driving, speeding and other careless actions on the road are a leading cause of injury and wrongful death in America. In such cases, the victims or their families can pursue compensation through personal injury lawsuits.
  • Truck accidents: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in only one year, approximately 80,000 people were injured in collisions with trucks nationwide. Many of these accidents were due to truck driver fatigue, poor truck maintenance, overloading and other types of negligence.
  • Motorcycle accidents: Because they are not protected by their vehicles, motorcyclists frequently suffer traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, road rash and other injuries.
  • Drunk driving accidents: If you were injured by a drunk driver, you may be eligible for punitive damages in addition to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
  • Commercial vehicle accidents: Our lawyers represent individuals harmed by careless delivery truck drivers, taxi cab drivers, garbage truck drivers and others.
