Car Accident Attorneys in Baton Rouge
Each year, an average of 6 million car accidents occur across the country. In Louisiana, car accidents accounted for 760 fatalities in 2017. Although the rate of occurrence of motor vehicle accidents is declining in the U.S., accidents are still frequently occurring.
Automobile accidents can cause minor to catastrophic injuries in which victims are forced to seek immediate medical care. It is not uncommon for victims to be hospitalized for days or even months after an accident. A number of accident victims will lose their jobs if they are unable to return to work due to injuries sustained in their accident. Many more will suffer life-altering and permanent injuries that will affect them physically, mentally, or emotionally.
Our personal injury attorneys in Baton Rouge have years of experience handling personal injury cases, including a wide variety of motor vehicle accident cases, including:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Semi-Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Scooter Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents

- Uber/Lyft/Rideshare Accidents
Accidents like these can happen suddenly and without warning. Sadly, a number of these accidents are caused by an unfocused driver. Drivers can become easily distracted by cellphones, loud music, lack of sleep, and alcohol or drugs.

Have Any Questions To Ask?
Under Louisiana state law, employers are required to have worker’s compensation insurance or would have to be approved to self-insure. And generally, an employee who is injured in the workplace, or performing their official duties on behalf of the employer, is eligible for worker’s compensation without regard to who is at fault for the injury.
Being a party to a slip and fall or a premise liability case poses severe financial and medical consequences. Even a slight fall could cause substantial injury to specific individuals.
Although some of the injuries are obvious, there are also a lot of injuries that are not easily observed or physical in nature. Therefore, it is essential to seek medical attention after the accident and seek follow-up medical evaluation if new symptoms arise or your condition worsens even after your initial medical consultation.
