Elevator-keypad-300x200Elevator accidents can cause a lot of different injuries. Not all of them are physical, but any of them (physical or mental) can potentially be compensable with the right evidence.

Given the number of web pages dedicated to interpreting them, dreams about being inside a falling elevator are not uncommon. For most people, such a dream would certainly fall inside the definition of a “nightmare.” For an unfortunate few, however, these nightmarish events are no dream; they are all too real. When they happen, they have the potential to inflict a variety of injuries. Even if you suffer no physical damage, you may still be left with severe and lasting emotional scars from your elevator accident. If that happens to you, be sure to contact a knowledgeable Louisiana injury attorney about your accident.

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable on the road. Accidents involving motorcycles often leave bikers with severe or fatal injuries. Due to these accidents’ frequent severity, motorcyclists have an especially high need for knowing how to go about getting all of the compensation that the law allows. That includes identifying all of the people and entities who were liable for your crash and obtaining judgments or settlements involving each of them. All of these processes, and outcomes, can be enhanced by putting the knowledge of an experienced Louisiana injury attorney on your side.

What do we mean by identifying all defendants? The case of a motorcyclist named D.N. is a good example. Reportedly, D.N. was traveling on a four-lane road in Alexandria. As D.N. passed by a local restaurant, T.D. was trying to exit that restaurant and enter the road in his pickup truck. With his vision allegedly obscured by another pickup truck parked on the public right-of-way at edge of the restaurant’s parking lot, T.D. proceeded with his turn. The two vehicles crashed. The impact was massive enough to total both vehicles and cause D.N. to suffer severe injuries.

You’ve probably heard the phrase “trial strategy.” Trial strategy involves making certain legal or procedural decisions in order to take maximum advantage of the facts or the law surrounding your case. But how much does trial strategy really matter – aren’t most all trials generally the same? The answer is a resounding “no.” Each trial has its own unique twists and turns. Even if most were similar, would you want to gamble the compensation you need on your case not being one of the unusual ones? Protect yourself by making sure you have a knowledgeable Louisiana injury attorney on your side to protect your rights no matter how ordinary or extraordinary your case is.

R.N. and T.H. were two people who were also personal injury plaintiffs in a case that demonstrates how important trial strategy can be. R.N. and T.H. were injured in a two-vehicle auto accident.

Vehicle collisions are unpredictable and the severity of your injuries dependent on so many factors.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident, some of the most common injuries individuals suffer from are neck strains – also known as whiplash. Whiplash injuries frequently occur in rear-end accidents as occupants are generally thrust forward in a very unsafe manner.      

Truck crashes are almost always serious, and are very often catastrophic. They are emotionally grueling, but they are also, in many instances, legally complex. Be sure you have the services of an experienced Louisiana injury attorney to help you get the beneficial results you deserve.

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 2017 was a very deadly year for truck crashes that inflicted fatal injuries. (The institute has not released the numbers for 2018.) 4,102 people died in wrecks involving large trucks, making it the first time in a decade that the total number of deaths exceeded 4,100. Some fatal truck accidents are unavoidable, but too many occur as a result of someone failing to do his/her job as well as he/she should. Whether it was a driver driving unsafely, a maintenance worker failing to complete truck repairs properly, or a trucking company putting unsafe trucks and/or drivers on the road when it reasonably should have known better, many people die every year in this country due to negligence in relation to semi trucks. If you have been hurt, or have lost a loved one, due to a trucking accident reach out to a Louisiana personal injury attorney.

When facing a life-changing injury such as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), victims may have many questions. One such question we here at the Cardone Law Firm frequently receive is, “How much money is my traumatic brain injury worth?”

In 2005, Officer Coyle was riding with his father across the Causeway when their vehicle suffered a flat. An impaired driver would end up rear-ending their vehicle. While Christian survived the accident, his father, unfortunately, did not.
