A personal injury can leave you in physical pain, emotional distress, and dire financial straits. With medical bills piling up and no paychecks coming in, it is normal to wonder how you will make it through the weeks and months ahead. If someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing caused or contributed to your injury, you may be able to collect compensation from that party.
A Henderson personal injury lawyer from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers can help you pursue a financial recovery. Our team goes after liable parties and takes on their insurance companies, helping our clients get paid what they are entitled to collect.
The Types of Cases We Help Victims Pursue
Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers is a full-service personal injury firm that helps injured Henderson residents fight for compensation. No matter what happened to you, we are here for you. We will protect your rights. Even if another lawyer has turned you away, you can come to us for help.
We can help you fight for monetary compensation for the following:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Whether you were injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers has the resources to investigate your crash and work to hold the responsible party (or parties) liable. We will pursue compensation from the other driver and anyone else who might have contributed to your accident – or who might bear legal liability. For example, a vehicle manufacturer or a trucking company may be liable for your accident.
Our Henderson personal injury lawyers take on insurance companies. Those companies have a slew of tactics they may use to pay you less than what is fair. Our team knows how to push back and fight to get our clients fair compensation. If they do not agree to pay you fairly, we will take your case to court.
We will investigate your boat accident and determine who was responsible. That may mean pursuing compensation from:
- Another boat driver
- A marina
- The boat manufacturer
- The insurance company that insures any of these parties
Defective Products or Pharmaceuticals
If you were injured while using a consumer product or good, we may help you recover compensation from the manufacturer. As long as you were using the product for its intended purpose – and you did not do anything to alter the product in a meaningful way before your injury – we may be able to hold the manufacturer liable.
We are also prepared to take on drug companies and medical facilities when patients get injured or become ill through no fault of their own. In some cases, we can also file a medical malpractice lawsuit against your doctor – for instance, if they prescribed you the wrong drug or the wrong dosage.
Slip and Fall Accidents
We will investigate and determine who was liable, whether you slipped and fell at:
- Someone’s home
- An apartment complex
- The office
- The gym
- A store
- Anywhere else
The liable party might be the property owner, manager, or someone else.
Dog owners may be responsible for the injuries their animals cause. RS 14:102.14 says that a dog is considered “dangerous” if it attacks a person more than once in a three-year period. Owners of “dangerous” dogs must keep their dogs restrained or confined at all times while on the owner’s property, and the dog must be kept on a leash whenever it leaves the property.
If a dog owner violated these rules and their dog attacked you or your child, we can help you seek compensation to cover medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.
One of the most difficult experiences a person can face is losing a loved one due to another party’s negligence. While money cannot bring your family member back, it can help you with the expenses that come from planning a funeral and burial.
Wrongful death plaintiffs, as defined by CC Art. 2315.1, may also be eligible for compensation to make up for the deceased’s loss of income, as well as the loss of guidance and companionship.
Regardless of the nature of your personal injury, Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers is here for you. Our lawyers will take the time to give you straightforward advice and inform you of all your options. The consultation is free, and we never collect a fee until we win.

We Will Fight for Fair Compensation on Your Behalf
Until we conduct a full evaluation of your personal injury, it is difficult to determine the value of your claim. We will pursue coverage for both economic and noneconomic losses. You may be able to recover a lot more than the cost of your medical expenses and lost income.
Our team can help you pursue noneconomic damages that are harder to quantify, like your emotional pain and suffering. We can also fight for your economic losses, like your car repairs and medical bills.
