What are the most common causes of personal injuries?

Personal injuries can happen anywhere. Some of the most traumatic injuries, however, occur on the road. The most common personal injuries are related to:

  • Car crashes
  • Bicycle crashes
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Accidents with pedestrians
  • Trucking crashes
  • Boating accidents

Multiple factors come into play during a crash. Negligence of other drivers, poor road conditions, or manufacturer defects can all lead to injuries.

How we handle personal injuries from car crashes

Car crashes are among the most common causes of personal injuries. They frequently lead to whiplash or lower back injuries. In the most severe cases, they can lead to traumatic brain injuries or death.

At Huber Thomas & Marcelle, we're committed to getting the whole story when there's been a wreck. We're one of the best New Orleans personal injury law firms to work with after a car or motorcycle crash. We work with dedicated, world-class expert witnesses to review your case and provide testimony. We examine police reports and accident reconstructions.

From there, we ask critical questions like:

  • Did a poorly maintained road contribute to your crash?
  • Was there insufficient or inaccurate signage?
  • Were there poorly marked construction zones or potholes?
  • Was there gravel or sand in the road?
  • Was a manufacturer defect a factor in the crash?

We prepare for every case as if it's going to trial to give you an edge during every negotiation. Our personal injury attorneys have proven courtroom success, helping our previous clients recoup millions of dollars in damages.

Proven success in bicycle crash cases

Charlie Thomas is the Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi delegate for Bike Law, a national group dedicated to advocating for the rights of cyclists. He also chairs the Policy and Design Committee of Bike Easy, an advocacy group.

At our firm, we're avid commuter and recreational cyclists ourselves. We know how vulnerable cyclists are on the roads. These crashes can lead to:

  • Concussion and head trauma
  • Fractures, especially in the collarbone and wrists
  • Neck injuries, like whiplash
  • Traumatic spinal cord injuries

If someone else's negligence caused your injury, whether they were on a bike or in a motor vehicle, you do have options. When we take on cyclist injury cases, we work with expert witnesses to recreate the exact crash conditions based on forensic evidence. This allows a jury to see 3D models of what happened on the road during your crash.
