Personal Injury Attorneys in Baton Rouge, Zachary, Gonzales & Denham Springs
Personal injury is described as any form of physical or mental harm suffered through the negligence of another person. The most common type of personal injury claims are car and truck accidents, but personal injuries can happen as the result of a variety of things such as defective products, negligent medical care or error, slip and falls, plant explosions and industrial workplace accidents, and the wrongful death of a family member or loved one.
The personal injury attorneys at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys in Baton Rouge, Zachary, Gonzales, and Denham Springs have successfully recovered compensation for victims of personal injury accidents. In order to recover this monetary compensation in a personal injury case, the injured party must demonstrate that their injuries were the result of the careless actions or wrongdoing of the at-fault party. In a car wreck or big truck accident, the other driver may be held liable for your injury or damages if they failed to follow traffic laws by speeding or driving distracted (Ex. texting while driving or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol).
How a Personal Injury Affects You ?
Regardless of the injuries you’ve sustained, the medical bills and associated expenses you incur can be extensive. Common car accident injuries include wrist and ankle fractures, whiplash, head trauma, and lower back injuries. In many cases, you’re unable to work and earn income as a result of your injury. Common consequences that you suffer at the result of a personal injury also include the inability to pay your mortgage or medical expenses and sustaining a painful chronic condition or a permanent physical impairment. At Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys in Baton Rouge, we believe that you shouldn’t have to face these burdens alone. The responsible and liable party and their insurance company should cover your losses fully. Unfortunately many times these insurance companies have tactics they use to limit their liability and settle cases for the smallest amount possible. For these reasons and many more, it is very important that you seek help from a lawyer if you’ve been involved in an accident that resulted in personal injury.
