The world comes to a screeching halt in the hours and days following a sudden accident. You may be transported away from the scene of the accident to a hospital, where taking photographs, getting a copy of the police report, interviewing witnesses, and gathering evidence are the last tasks on your mind. During an emergency, it’s worth every cent to have a compassionate and knowledgeable friend who can take care of all the details for you and fight to obtain maximum compensation on your behalf. Of all the Gardere personal injury lawyers, Bart Bernard stands out.
A Proven Track Record
Since 1997, Bart Bernard has served as an advocate for the sick, the injured, and the grieving family members who lost a loved one in Gardere, Louisiana. His case results speak volumes, from $23 million for a boating accident and $13 million for an oilfield injury, to $4.2 million for an automobile accident and $853,000 for a broken elevator premises liability claim.
A Heart of Gold
When he’s not busy securing settlements and jury awards for his personal injury clients, Bart Bernard is active in the local community, donating time and money to organizations like Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Acadiana, Dreams Come True of Louisiana, Race for the Cure, and Ragin’ Cajun Athletics, among others.
At some large firms, clients get passed around paralegals and rarely speak with the head attorney in charge of the case. Bart Bernard Injury Lawyers is a small firm with big local connections and resources. Each client receives individual attention and direct communication every step of the way. We understand that the legal process can be lengthy, so we take care to share developments in the case, so no one feels lost in the shuffle.
Financial strain greatly impedes physical healing and mental recovery. Knowing this, Bart Bernard can help you sort out some of your most pressing monetary matters. In some cases, we pay for clients to get examined by a doctor to render the opinion that the accident was directly responsible for your injuries. We routinely help clients understand how to maximize their health insurance policy coverage. If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident, our firm will explore whether you can benefit from MEDPAY coverage. If you are uninsured or underinsured, we can let you know which doctors are willing to treat on a lien basis, which comes out of the final settlement or award much like our legal fees. The diligence we expend in coordinating medical benefits routinely pays dividends when we effectively increase the value of personal injury settlements.
Free and Confidential Consultations
Many Louisiana residents are surprised to learn they can meet with an experienced personal injury lawyer, without paying a single cent. As a successful law firm, Bart Bernard is able to offer confidential, no-obligation consultations free of charge. In fact, our clients pay nothing, while we take care of filing fees, the hiring of expert witnesses, and other legal expenses. Payment for legal services come out of winning settlements and jury awards only. That fact is a testament to how successful the firm is. Elite legal representation is available for Gardere residents in their time of need, whether they can afford an attorney out of pocket or not.
Help Getting Through Hardship
Some lawsuits are straightforward: a distracted driver plows through a red light while texting and crashes into you. Other lawsuits involving a defective drug, birth injury, or premises liability dispute may involve detective work to get to the bottom of what really happened. If you suspect another party was responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by meeting Gardere personal injury lawyers for a free consultation.
