WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
Personal injury cases can be many things…an auto accident, 18-wheeler accident, motorcycle accident, boating and/or maritime and offshore accidents, airplane/aviation accident, bicycle accident and many other. Accidents involving products when they are designed, maintained and/or operated wrongfully or negligently are also types of personal injury cases.
Personal injury cases may also include fraud, where a business or person misrepresents something for financial gain. Also, some misrepresentations or acts by a person or company such an in insurance company or bank or financial business may also cause injury.
Work related injuries are personal injury cases and depending on the facts of each case, may be covered either by workers compensation or personal injury laws.
It is important to contact a lawyer that handles personal injury cases immediately after an accident/incident.
The dangers involved in alcohol-related accidents should be apparent to all of us. Operating a powerful machine like a car, truck, motorcycle, or boat while under the influence of drugs or alcohol means impaired judgment, slowed reflexes, and other problems which make someone less safe behind the wheel. These facts are reinforced from a very early age, and one can expect universal condemnation towards anyone caught driving while under the influence.

In the past years, riding has been a growing interest and passion in Acadiana. Along with the growth, accidents have increased. Most people will tell you that with more people than ever choosing this mode of transportation, the potential for injuries is higher than ever. Even for those experienced riders, it can be a dangerous way to travel. It may be surprising to people how terrible a “simple” bike accident can be, and head injuries are a major concern.
There is nothing like being able to make your way out onto the open water to enjoy the amazing breeze and the beautiful water. Every year, people everywhere hook up their boats, and zoom to the nearest waterway for a day of fishing, swimming, water-skiing, or just riding. Louisiana and our coast are a special place for hunters and fishermen, but, with so many places to boat, people can be injured. Experience has taught us that when you mix powerful machinery and human operators on the water, things can go wrong very quickly. One mistake made in a flash can have grave consequences. Injuries suffered during boating accidents are usually quite severe and many times life-threatening. Additionally, there are many laws applicable to boating and boating accidents. So it is no wonder that most people risk sinking their own ship when trying to make claims without the assistance of a skilled attorney.
Recently, more people and companies are becoming aware of the financial and reputation damage that fraud can cause. Risks faced as a result of fraud can be severe and include criminal prosecution, large fines, reputation damages, and competitor litigation leading to a loss. Individuals and companies need to be alert. There must be effective ways to ensure the security and integrity of an individual, a company, or an enterprise and its value. The Law Offices of Tony Morrow can help.
Offshore injuries and accidents have been a way of life in Louisiana for as long as there has been an oil industry. In the maritime industry, there are many different settings in which people work, and all have inherent risks that can lead to accidents, injuries, and even fatalities. Accidents on vessels in the open sea that involve serious or fatal injuries or property damage are commonly referred to as offshore accidents. The causes of these accidents are without measure — it could be that someone fell on a slippery deck, a piece of equipment failed, or even a fire caused a massive explosion. Maritime accidents are often more devastating than accidents in other occupations. This is due to a few factors. Many offshore accidents occur a long distance from the nearest aid. Working long hours doing tasks that require skill and training takes patience and determination. The lag time between injury and help arriving creates far worse consequences. Another reason is that maritime workers often deal with dangerous machinery in severe weather, increasing the chances of a terrible accident.
Premises liability is a legal concept that typically comes into play in personal injury cases where the injury was caused by an unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. Many personal injury cases are based on negligence, and premises liability cases are no exception. In these cases, the injured party must prove that the property owner was negligent concerning ownership and maintenance of the property. In general, negligence means that the property owner failed to use reasonable care in connection with the property.
Family law is one of those broad areas of the law that covers several types of cases. As one might expect, family law covers matters of divorce, spousal support, child support, custody and visitation.
We all think about the possibility of losing a loved one but go through life hoping that it never happens to us. Having a loved one pass away unexpectedly, especially if someone’s negligence caused the accident, can be extremely devastating. Sadly, thousands of people each year have lost loved ones in accidents. After such a loss, surviving family members often feel a paralyzing sense of grief. The sudden, profound nature of a wrongful death can feel positively overwhelming at times.
