  • Can I receive compensation for a car accident or truck accident injury?

If you have been injured in a car accident or truck accident through the fault of another, then you may be entitled to compensation. We urge you to contact LaGarde Law Firm as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights.

In assessing your situation, we will look primarily at two important factors: the nature and extent of your injuries and the person or persons at fault in the accident.

First, in order for a personal injury lawsuit to be appropriate, you must have injuries that are significant. Important factors include the pain and suffering you endured, the nature and extent of any medical treatment you received, whether you missed time from work as a result of the injury and whether you have any temporary or permanent disability caused by the accident.

We will also seek to determine who is at fault in the accident. If your injury was caused by another’s negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation. That fault extends to situations where a negligent driver collided with your vehicle, and it may even include situations in which you were partially at fault as well. If the accident was the result of equipment malfunction or failure, then there may have been a defect in design or manufacture, leading to liability on the part of the manufacturer.

These issues and others need to be analyzed by attorneys who are experienced in such matters. At LaGarde Law Firm, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to evaluate your rights, represent your interests and achieve the greatest possible compensation for you.
