Louisiana Pedestrian Accident Cases Are Incredibly Complex. Let Us Do the Hard Parts

pedestrian accident lawyersIn 2008, 89 pedestrians were killed in Louisiana and another 1,085 pedestrians suffered injuries, according to the LSU Highway Safety Research Group. Despite strict laws and traffic regulations aimed at protecting pedestrians, drivers continue to hit and hurt people as they cross the street or walk on the sidewalk.

The pedestrian accident attorneys at Neblett, Beard & Arsenault have devoted more than 30 years to representing injury victims, including pedestrians in Alexandria, Baton Rouge and communities across the state of Louisiana. If you’ve been hit by a motorist while walking along or crossing Louisiana’s streets, contact our personal injury lawyers at 1-888-975-1728 for a free evaluation of your case, or submit an online request. We proudly serve the people of Louisiana including Baton Rouge, Alexandria, Lafayette, Shreveport, Lake Charles, Monroe and the surrounding communities.

Sadly, we’ve seen that very often, these injuries are completely preventable and occur due to factors such as:

  • Speeding
  • Alcohol use while driving
  • Inattentive motorists
  • Failing to yield right of way
  • Elderly drivers

Pedestrian injuries are almost always severe; when an unprotected person collides with a vehicle weighing 2,000 pounds or more, serious injury is inevitable and can include:

  • Severe head trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Brain damage
  • Leg injuries
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Neck and back injuries

Drivers will often claim you were at fault – but in many instances, pedestrians have the right of way. If you were following the rules of the road and the driver wasn’t, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages – and the pedestrian injury attorneys at Neblett, Beard & Arsenault are ready to help.

Our Areas of Practice

Louisiana injured accident victims have rights, and the attorneys of Neblett, Beard, and Arsenault want to help fight for them. Our attorneys understand that serious accident injuries can have a long-lasting impact on your life, and we will work hard to help you obtain compensation for your medical costs, property damage, lost time at work, and pain and suffering.
Personal injury cases can arise from a wide variety of accidents and other situations. Car accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, exposure to toxic substances, and more are all avoidable circumstances that can lead to the unnecessary injury to a victim. Often, victims suffer serious injuries that leave them facing a difficult recovery or even a permanent disability. When that happens, victims should be able to focus on their health and recovery, not the complex and often frustrating details of a legal case.
When you are injured or become ill because of a dangerous drug, defective medical device, or a toxic consumer product, you are very likely not the only person to suffer. When a product harms a large number of people, a court may determine that the case can be filed as a mass tort action, which saves time, effort, and money for each individual plaintiff. Our mass tort attorneys are prepared to take on major manufacturers to get you the compensation you deserve.
