The Lambert Firm represents a wide range of individuals who have been injured at work, in a car accident, at a refinery, working offshore, and generally any place that people live and work. Accidents happen and are often caused by the negligence of another party. Unfortunately, fault is not always clear-cut, and the party at fault must often be sued to pay for damages caused.
A New Orleans personal injury lawyer from The Lambert Firm represents injured individuals by finding the legally responsible parties who caused the accident and making sure that they or their insurance companies pay for the damages they have caused.
Our personal injury trial lawyers handle cases including:
Aviation Accidents – Air travel is generally considered a safer means of transportation, however at least one U.S. carrier has suffered some type of accident that resulted in the loss of life every year since 1990.
Car Accidents – Automobile accidents occur more frequently than any of us would like. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly three million people are injured in car, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents each year. Experienced legal representation from a personal injury lawyer is crucial to ensuring victims are sufficiently compensated for injuries suffered in an automobile accident.
Maritime Accidents – Since the late 1970′s, The Lambert Firm has successfully resolved hundreds of maritime claims involving offshore drilling activities in the Gulf of Mexico and worldwide.
Mass Torts – When a medical device or consumer product is defective, it can cause the same type of harm to hundreds, if not thousands of users. The legal issues among the claims are also similar.
Motorcycle Accidents – Only a New Orleans personal injury lawyer who has experience in handling motorcycle injury litigation will be familiar with potential motorcycle defects, the biases of juries and insurance carriers and adjusters, and the resources available to best represent your interests.
Products Liability – When you purchase a product, you expect it to work properly and that it will not injure you or a loved one. However, almost any product has the potential to cause significant injuries.
Railroad Accidents – If you were injured in a railroad accident while working for or on a railroad, your case will likely fall under the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA). This federal law directs railroads to maintain their fleets, ensuring that their trains are in good working order and free of defect. If a railroad fails to comply with FELA standards, it may be found 100% liable for your damages.
Refinery and Chemical Plant Accidents – The Gulf Coast has a high concentration of chemical plants and refineries, creating an environment in which personal injury, property damage or wrongful death often occur. The Louisiana refinery accident lawyers of The Lambert Firm have an impressive record of handling refinery and chemical plant injury lawsuits across more than 35 years of practice.
Truck Accidents – While large trucks only account for three percent of vehicles on our roadways, the fatality percentage in trucking accidents is disproportionately high. Large trucks present a significant danger to smaller motor vehicles across Louisiana and throughout the United States.
Wrongful Death – Coping with the loss of a loved one can be one of the most trying times of your life. When your family member’s death was caused by another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, the family of the victim can pursue a wrongful death claim for the deceased’s medical bills, loss of wages, funeral, burial expenses and other financial losses.
