Helping Families and Seriously Injured Victims Every Step of the Way
In a split second, a devastating accident can occur. Looking at your cellular phone while driving, not cleaning up the floor after a spill, having a stairway not constructed in accordance with building codes, an employer who maintains an unsafe work environment, an unseaworthy commercial vessel — these are examples of decisions people make that can cause serious accidents, even death. If you have lost a loved one as a result of wrongful death or have been severely injured after an accident caused by the negligence or recklessness of others, you are protected by law.
According to the Louisiana Civil Code, Article 2315: “Every act whatever of man that causes damage to another obliges him by whose fault it happened to repair it.”
This code article is the foundation of our tort law system. Its meaning is simple — if you break something, you fix it. This law seeks to protect innocent victims and their families from harm due to negligent acts of others. Unfortunately, insurance companies often ignore the intent of this law by denying and minimizing legitimate claims solely for their own financial gain.
Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the law firm of Saunders & Chabert has extensive experience and knowledge in personal injury law. We have a personal understanding of the various hardships you are facing, such as medical expenses, lost wages and the intangible damages such as pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life. We also have a vast network of experts at our disposal, and the information they provide can help us build an effective personal injury claim for you.
Representation You Can Count On
Often in these cases, businesses and insurance companies fail to properly compensate injured victims and their families looking to fully recover after the accident. By working closely with you, we are determined to seek the maximum compensation that you deserve.
We represent clients who have suffered serious injuries, such as:
- Brain/spine injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Chemical exposures
