Recovering Compensation After Car and Truck Accidents in Louisiana

At Hymel Davis & Petersen - Attorneys and Counselors at Law, we are not the kind of personal injury lawyers that take on a large number of cases just to settle them for a minimal amount. In fact, we refuse to settle for anything less than a fair compensation amount. We maximize recovery through innovation and old-fashioned hard work. If you were injured in a Louisiana car accident or truck accident, put the experience of a law office that is AV-rated* under the Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating system to work for you.

Our law firm was founded by attorneys with over 100 years of combined legal experience. We use our experience to represent individuals who have suffered significant injuries because of someone else's negligent or reckless driving.

Our truck accident lawyers assert your interests when you have been injured or lost a loved one to an 18-wheeler accident.

Accessing a Personal Injury Case

There are three factors at stake in a personal injury claim. Our lawyers assert your interests when you have been injured or lost a loved one to an 18-wheeler truck accident. Whatever caused the accident - a sleep-deprived or inattentive trucker, improperly loaded semi, a trucking company's serious error, failure to respond to dangerous road conditions, etc. - call on our attorneys.

  • Liability: Who caused the accident? Who is responsible for your damages?
  • Damages: How much money are you entitled to receive? Damages for truck and car accidents can include compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
  • Recoverability: Is there enough insurance to pay for your damages? If not, can the negligent party make up the difference?

Our lawyers look at all three issues when evaluating your personal injury claim. We will provide you with an honest evaluation of your claim and chances for success so that, together, we can decide how to move forward.
