Types Of Personal Injuries In Lafayette

Nobody gets through life unscathed. And while some accidents, illnesses and catastrophes feel like inexplicable acts of God, others have preventable, human causes.

Where you can trace the cause of your injury or of your loved one’s death to negligence – recklessness, wanton disregard or carelessness – you may have cause for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Speak to a local Lake Charles personal injury attorney about your case and explore your options.

Common Personal Injuries

Automobile accidents constitute by far the most common cause of Lake Charles’s personal injuries. In Louisiana and nationwide, motor vehicle accidents have long been the most frequent source of personal injury and death. If you are involved in a Lake Charles automobile accident, speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer from the Gaar Law Firm about asserting your right to be compensated for your injuries and loss.

Other personal injuries can occur through:

  • Slips and falls
  • Maritime accidents
  • Work injuries, including repetitive motion injuries
  • Food poisoning

A knowledgeable injury attorney can help you sort through the facts of your case and decide whether to sue the responsible party for negligence.

Accidental Death

  • Falls: from stairs, ladders, ships and boats, scaffolding or construction, etc.
