Lafayette Car Accident Lawyers Prepared to Represent You

Causes of car accidents

Countless factors can contribute to motor vehicle accidents. Some collisions, such as those caused by weather conditions or medical emergencies, simply cannot be avoided—others, however, are preventable. In accidents that occur due to error, carelessness, or negligence on the part of the other driver, injury victims are entitled to recourse. A Lafayette car accident lawyer from the Cooke Law Firm can help clients file personal injury claims seeking compensation for medical costs, property damage, lost wages due to missed work time, and even emotional pain and suffering.

If you believe you were injured in an accident stemming from negligence, such as the following behaviors or occurrences, visit one of our car accident attorneys in Lafayette as soon as possible:

  • Speeding: Driving recklessly, aggressively, and/or without regard for the speed limit
  • DUI/DWI: Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. While DUI/DWI is actually a criminal conviction, you can also file a civil lawsuit for damages.
  • Extreme fatigue: Driving while exhausted, or falling asleep at the wheel.
  • Distraction: Driving without giving full attention to the road, and instead concentrating on the radio, GPS or location device, mobile phone, passengers, or scenery
  • Equipment failure: A vehicle unexpectedly malfunctions
