Lafayette Personal Injury Attorneys with a Reputation for Winning
Turning Wrong Into Right Since 1996
When an act of negligence causes serious injury or death, you deserve a successful advocate fighting for your recovery. At Galloway Jefcoat, LLP, our attorneys have resolved more than 1,000 personal injury cases, including people injured by defective drugs, car and 18 wheeler accidents, boating wrecks and oil rig accidents. Our work representing the injured has given us a reputation for winning. We fight for our clients until they get what they deserve, and your adversaries know that we do not back down.
What Do I Do After a Serious Accident?
After a serious injury or sudden death of a loved one, bills begin to pile up, along with questions about how to recover physically, emotionally and financially from a devastating trauma. While attorneys can never undo what happened, they can help provide a brighter outlook for your future by obtaining compensation to cover medical costs and lost wages from missing work. While we focus on dealing with insurance companies and procuring compensation for losses, injured victims and their family members can focus on healing and recovering.
Please call us and tell us about your situation, we can help you. We rely on a team of professionals, including medical experts and accident reconstructionists to recreate the conditions that caused your injury. We use this information to prove that other parties were responsible for the harm you suffered, and they should cover the expenses that you unfortunately incurred. Additionally, you may be entitled to receive additional money for damages that are difficult to put a price on, such as loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship from a departed loved one, emotional duress, as well as physical pain and suffering.
We understand that lawsuits and courtrooms are intimidating and unwelcome prospects, especially at this time in your life. This is why we negotiate with insurance companies and
exhaust every opportunity for a fair recovery without involving a trial. We only go to court if the responsible party refuses to make you a fair offer.
