Experienced Baton Rouge and South Louisiana Attorney Helps Accident Victims Secure Substantial Compensation

Accomplished Louisiana lawyer handles a range of personal injury issues

If you were severely injured in an accident, you need an attorney skilled at achieving favorable settlements and mounting strong cases in the courtroom. At Amos Davis Law in Baton Rouge, I advocate for accident victims throughout the area in a variety of personal injury matters, including cases stemming from vehicle and trucking crashes, chemical and industrial plant accidents, slip-and-fall incidents and instances of medical malpractice. With over 40 years of legal experience, I have extensive knowledge of the law and know how to produce positive results. Whether you were hit by a truck driver, misdiagnosed by your doctor or hurt in a fall on a broken sidewalk, I will assess the merits of your claim and give you an informed assessment on the potential value of your case.

Who may be liable for your trucking accident injuries?

Many different people are involved in commercial truck driving operations, so proving liability often requires complex analysis of the facts and law. The following are examples of individuals and entities who may be to blame in trucking accident cases:

  • Truck driver
  • Trucking company
  • Trucking manufacturer
  • Owner of the truck
  • Other drivers involved in the accident

I am highly adept at finding the liable parties in these cases and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

What are the types of claims that may be filed in a motor vehicle accident case?

The types of claims that are commonly associated with motor vehicle accident cases include:

  • Negligence
  • Vehicle manufacturer liability for defects that contributed to the crash
  • Wrongful death claims arising from a fatal collision

Proving liability in motor vehicle accident cases requires a thorough investigation, and I will develop a comprehensive and effective legal strategy to support your claim.

Who is permitted to bring a wrongful death case?

Only certain family members are allowed to file a wrongful death case. Specifically, spouses and children are given priority. Only in the event the deceased was childless and unmarried can other family members seek legal redress. I understand how devastating the loss of a loved one is and am committed to securing some legal relief for bereaved loved ones.

What are three key legal issues that impact medical malpractice cases?

Filing a medical malpractice claim is often necessary to fully account for the harm medical errors cause. There are several legal standards you should be aware of if you file suit, such as:

  • A $500,000 cap on damages, plus past and future medical expenses
  • Required examination of the claim by the state Medical Review Board before a lawsuit can be filed
  • One-year time limit to file suit except three-years if not discovered earlier

While these issues can pose problems, I know how to address these obstacles and obtain favorable results.

How to prove a merchant’s negligence caused your slip-and-fall injury

Merchants and other property owners have a duty to keep their the premises safe. When someone is injured in a slip-and-fall incident, showing the merchant knew or should have known about a problem but still failed to fix it can be critical to a successful lawsuit. How long the hazard existed, whether adequate inspections were performed and if the condition was reported are all key factors in showing the merchant was negligent.
