Our Areas of Expertise
Bart Bernard is particularly adept at handling:
Where there is negligence or recklessness, we will find it. Sometimes there is more to a case than meets the eye. If a fatigued trucker drives into a passenger vehicle, is it solely the fault of the driver? Or does the company he works for have a long history of accidents due to inside policies that force drivers to falsify their record books and break the law, working for more hours than they’re allowed? Our skilled team of investigators includes law enforcement officers, private detectives, accident reconstructionists, medical experts, and professional analysts. Our personal injury lawyer will leave no stone unturned in pursuit of liability and justice. This expansive local network we’ve created also ensures that you will get the best possible medical care, should you need a referral.
Louisiana Personal Injury Law
In Louisiana, you have just one year to initiate a personal injury claim, so you’ll have to act fast if seeking compensation for your injuries is something you’re considering. The clock starts ticking as soon as the accident occurs – or, in some cases, when you realize the cause or extent of your injuries. Louisiana law also allows you to seek damages if you were partially to blame for the accident. The amount of compensation you receive might be reduced based on the percentage of fault ascribed to you, but you can still collect. For this reason, it’s especially important you seek the best possible representation to secure maximum recovery.
