Question: What Do I Do After a Car Accident?
Answer: Wait. Exchange information with the other driver. Answer the police's questions. Ask witnesses for their phone number.
The highways in and around Lafayette can be dangerous places. At the Law Office of Joshua S. Guillory, we take cases from individuals who have been injured in every kind of motor vehicle accident, including car, motorcycle and truck crashes.
Joshua S. Guillory, Car Accident Attorney
In each case Josh Guillory is on the scene, conducting his own investigation, gathering evidence to support your claim. We look to see if the accident was caused by the other driver's negligence, or if a defective product (like safety equipment that failed to work) was responsible for your injuries.
In worst cases, as frequently happens in motorcycle and truck crashes, we file wrong death suits to benefit the victim's surviving family members.
Diligent New Iberia Trucking Accident Lawyer
Truck-related injuries are among the worst that we see, and the cases can be complex. We conduct our usual investigation in these accidents, but we go further, examining driver logs and truck company records, along with police reports and the testimony of eyewitnesses. We want to know if the accident was the result of poor maintenance or overtired or undertrained drivers.
We never set out to take a case to court. We settle many cases before that happens, when it is advantageous to clients. But we are not afraid of trial, either. When the situation requires, we will fight it out for you on the courtroom floor.
Adept Louisiana Custodian Liability Representation
The Law Office of Joshua S. Guillory has been successful filing claims on behalf of persons injured while on someone else's premises. You may know these kinds of accidents as custodian liability, or premises liability, or slip-and-fall torts:
- Falling down a stairwell because a railing gave way
- Getting bit or attacked by a neighbor's dog
- Tripping on a curb because a store didn't illuminate its parking lot
Protecting Rights and Wrongs
There is a related suit called an intentional tort. If you are watching a ball game in a tavern and another person comes over and attacks you, the law allows you to file a civil suit for damages (in addition to the police charging him with criminal battery).
At the law office of Joshua S. Guillory, we leave no stone unturned to protect your rights and obtain compensation for your wrongs.
