New Orleans Attorneys For Accident Victims
Foley, Lamy & Jefferson offers personalized service for accident victims, as well as discrimination victims, in the New Orleans area. Our lawyers are here to help anyone experiencing the following legal issues:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Victims of motor vehicle accidents can suffer catastrophic injuries that change the course of their life. Wrecks that involve semitrucks, personal vehicles, motorcycles, commercial vehicles and pedestrians all demand action from the victims. There isn’t any reason you should have to cover the costs of a wreck when you weren’t responsible for the crash. We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
Medical malpractice encompasses many different issues. Misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical errors and birth injuries are some of the more common problems that can lead to serious issues for the patient. Hold the medical professional accountable for their negligence and the damages you suffered.
Premises And Product Liability
Premises liability has to do with being harmed on someone else’s property, including personal and commercial properties. Product liability deals with being injured due to defective or recalled products. Property owners and manufacturers have specific duties to people that can’t be breached.
Offshore And Maritime Accidents
Maritime accidents can often lead to catastrophic injuries. When you think about the response time that it takes for the Coast Guard or others to make it to an offshore rig or vessel, you can understand why these accidents can be so tragic. The delay in medical care can exacerbate many injuries.
Workers who are injured in accidents on the job often need to seek medical care and might have to take time off work. Workers’ compensation can cover the costs associated with treatments for the injury. People who have to miss work for prolonged periods can receive partial wage replacement benefits. Unfortunately, some applicants must appeal incorrect decisions.
Employees who have to deal with negative employment actions due to a protected status, such as gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religion, have options for handling these situations. Specific steps must be taken in these cases, so working with someone with experience is beneficial.
