If you were recently injured in a car accident in Henderson, LA, or if someone you love was hurt and lost their life in a crash, you may be eligible for a substantial monetary award from the other driver and their insurance company. In Louisiana, car accident victims can recover both economic and noneconomic damages, meaning you can get paid not only for your financial losses like medical bills and lost wages, but also for items such as pain and suffering that do not involve actual monetary loss.
A Henderson car accident lawyer from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers can pursue compensation. We will investigate your accident to determine where the fault lies, and we will collect evidence and build a claim for damages on your behalf. Our legal team will pursue compensation from the at-fault driver and their insurance company, not letting them saddle you with an unfair settlement. We are so dedicated to your case that we do not charge any fees until we win.
To start the process today with a free, no-obligation case evaluation, call Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers at (337) 777-7777.
We Will Help You Regardless of How Your Car Accident Happened
At Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, we have spent decades helping Louisiana car accident victims recover compensation so they can get on with their lives. We understand the complex liability laws surrounding car accidents in the state, and we can navigate you through the process.
We want to hear from you no matter how your car accident occurred—even if you believe you were partly at fault or worry you might not be eligible for compensation. We have heard from many clients in your shoes and, in many cases, were still able to help them get paid.
We work with clients who suffered the following and more:
Rear-end accidents can lead to serious injuries, particularly whiplash and other spinal trauma. Many people believe that a rear-end collision is always the fault of the back driver, and while this is usually true, there are exceptions to the rule. We can help you pursue compensation for a rear-end collision no matter how it happened or what your role was.
Side-impact collisions—which often occur at intersections—involve the front of one vehicle striking the side of another. If someone ran a red light or stop sign, or disregarded a yield sign, we can work to hold them accountable for hitting your vehicle and injuring you.
Head-on collisions are a particularly dangerous type of car accident because of the double-impact effect (when the speed of the vehicles involved is compounded at the moment of impact), often leading to traumatic injuries and even death. If another driver crossed the center line and hit you—or was driving on the wrong side of the road—we want to hold them accountable.
Impaired Driving Accidents
Drunk driving can lead to many serious accidents and injuries. We will look for evidence that could indicate that the driver who hit you was intoxicated (either by alcohol or drugs, including prescription medication) at the time of the collision.
Distracted Driving Accidents
If the driver who hit you was using a smartphone or GPS device, or was doing anything—shaving or eating, perhaps—that diverted their eyes and mind from the road, they were involved in distracted driving. Distracted driving is a form of negligence behind the wheel. We will hold the liable driver accountable and help you recover compensation.
We can help you recover compensation even if you were partly at fault for your accident. We help clients understand how they could be eligible for compensation under CC 2323, and we want to help you, too.

Potentially Recoverable Economic and Noneconomic Compensation
Louisiana car accident victims are eligible to collect both economic and noneconomic compensation for their injuries. At Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, we pursue both forms to get you the settlement you are eligible for by law.
Economic damages refer to losses that can be quantified in dollar terms. These are things that actually require payment for and cause you to have to spend money (or to lose out on money you would have otherwise received). For example:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Prescription drug costs
- Vehicle repair or replacement
Noneconomic damages are those that do not involve actual monetary depletion, but that you are entitled to receive compensation for anyway. Noneconomic damages include:
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
