Come to Us for Help After an Accident

A sudden injury can disrupt every aspect of your life. Our Baton Rouge attorneys can help explain your legal options for a personal injury case and help you evaluate all available avenues for compensation. We will make sure you understand every step of the process.

We pursue personal injury claims for adults and children injured in accidents involving:

When we take on a case, we meticulously review the circumstances of your injury and provide you with our candid evaluation.

Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Action

Whenever you sue someone for personal injuries, you must prove specific facts. You must show that the person you are suing was negligent and that their negligence was the direct cause of your injuries.

A person, company, or government agency can be negligent. Negligence means not using a reasonable degree of care or caution. As your Baton Rouge attorneys, we will prove negligence by showing that the party you are suing—the defendant—owed you a duty, did not uphold their duty, and you sustained personal injuries.


Duty is sometimes misunderstood. Everyone owes everyone else a duty to obey the law. Drivers owe a duty to anyone else who uses the roads, property owners must keep their premises safe, and manufacturers must ensure their products are safe for use. People who supervise children have a duty to keep them from harm.

Direct Cause

You must prove that the defendant’s negligence directly caused your injury. In many cases, this is straightforward, but it is not always. Our attorneys will ensure there is evidence linking your injuries to the defendant’s conduct before bringing a case.

Actual Harm

You must prove the defendant’s failure to meet their duty caused you actual harm. If you claim an injury, you must have medical records proving it. A fear of future harm is not enough. Your attorney will review receipts and other documentation to prove your injury-related expenses and lost income.

Compensation Offers Financial Protection

The money you receive from a legal claim is called your damages. Your damages compensate you for your injury-related expenses and the impact your injury has on your quality of life. Damages from a personal injury lawsuit in Baton Rouge could help you protect your family’s financial security and ensure you get the treatment and services you need after your injury.

You can claim your medical expenses, including pharmaceuticals, durable medical equipment, rehabilitation expenses, and counseling to help you adjust to the injury. If you need home renovations to accommodate an injury-related disability, you could claim the cost as damages. Your damages also include lost income, and if you cannot return to work because of the injury, your future earning capacity will be diminished.

You can also claim pain and suffering damages, which is money to compensate you for your scars, inconvenience, physical pain, disability, emotional distress, and similar losses.


If you were injured by a commercial truck driven by a careless tractor-trailer driver, you may find yourself battling large trucking businesses and their stingy insurance companies to recover financial compensation for your damages.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Baton Rouge trucking accident due to no fault of your own, you have the right to know your legal options.

Among the many types of motor vehicle crashes, motorcycle collisions are the most dangerous. Motorcycle riders are fully exposed in an accident. They are not protected by safety features like seatbelts or airbags.

Most motorcycle traffic collisions result in injury or death to the rider. Motorcycle crashes usually involve a collision between the rider’s motorcycle and another vehicle.

When we purchase any product from a store or online retailer, we trust that it will work properly, safely, and as intended. Unfortunately, sometimes products turn out to be dangerous and leave us with life-changing injuries.

In Louisiana, the law holds manufacturers and retailers of defective or unreasonably dangerous products responsible for the harm that they cause.

The loss of a family member is a heartbreaking experience. When a relative’s death occurs due to someone else’s negligence or intentional acts, it can only increase the pain of your loss and leave you with feelings of anger or bitterness at those responsible. It can also leave the surviving family with serious financial burdens.

In these tragic circumstances, your family may be entitled to assert a wrongful death claim in Baton Rouge.

Your posts on Instagram about the types of injuries and the procedures involved with each are very informative. I can see why clients express how well you communicate with them throughout their case. Having a former insurance lawyer, Frank Tomeny, also is beneficial with his knowledge and years of experience. For these reasons I highly recommend your law firm to anyone needing a personal injury lawyer.

How Our Attorneys Could Help You

A severe injury requires a lot of adjustment. Contacting a Baton Rouge legal professional soon after the personal injury incident could help protect your rights and smooth some hurdles.

Once they have identified the potentially responsible parties, they will submit a demand for compensation. Negotiations begin. The parties typically reach an appropriate settlement if you work with a skilled lawyer. In the instance that negotiations fail, your attorney will aggressively pursue your interests in court.
