If you sustained injuries in an accident, it is imperative that you have experienced legal counsel. Having a Lafayette personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara by your side will help to ensure that you protect your rights.
Whether you are dealing with injuries from a car accident, slip and fall, dog bite, burn, or a wrongful death claim, you may be able to receive monetary compensation for your losses:
The term “personal injury” can cover any number of different injuries, and each injury has unique circumstances. One type of personal injury claim may make you eligible to receive compensation, while another type may not. A qualified Lafayette personal injury lawyer will consequently examine the facts and circumstances that led to your specific injury to determine what type of case you have.
Below are a few different types of injuries which may be appropriate for a suit.
If you have been injured as a passenger in a car accident, you may have a claim against the driver’s insurance company. This is true regardless of whether the driver of your car was at fault, or if the driver of another vehicle is at fault. Also, if you were the driver, and your car was in an accident, you may have a legitimate personal injury case even if you were partially at fault.

Business owners have a duty of care to their employees. Your employer has an obligation to make sure the workplace is safe. This includes providing proper protective equipment when handling dangerous chemicals. It also includes providing a hard hat where appropriate.
Work-related injuries also occur in cases of falling, for example, where there is unattended water on the floor. Another common workplace injury occurs if someone falls off a platform because it lacked proper securing with a banister or railing of some type. Generally, if you suffered from a work-related injury, you may file a claim with Workers’ Compensation.
Injuries and deaths from defective products can provide the basis for a legal claim. Examples of defective products include:
