Airplane Accidents


Airplanes and helicopters are intricate machines that must be designed well, built to exact standards, and meticulously maintained. Such mechanical or pilot error accidents usually cause death or serious injury. We are experienced in representing persons injured in aviation and helicopter cases. If you have been involved in an airplane or helicopter accident and would like to learn more about your legal rights, please contact the Cunard Law Firm.

   

Boat Accidents


Every year, increased boating activity in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River leads to boating and maritime accidents involving tugboats, barges, offshore rigs, crew boats, recreational speedboats, yachts, or other vessels. Collisions, boat malfunctions, and inexperienced or impaired operators can contribute to serious injuries, even death. If you or someone you know has suffered a severe injury while working offshore or boating recreationally, please contact the Cunard Law Firm.

   

Car Accidents


Most of our cases involve serious injuries resulting from auto accidents. We know and understand the injuries, the laws of the road, the legal issues involved and how serious injuries can permanently affect your life and that of your family. But car accidents can cause serious injuries even if there is little property damage. You should never assume that handling an automobile accident case is simple. Even cases involving minor injuries may involve complex legal issues. Insurance adjusters work for and are paid by the insurance company. Their job is to save money for the insurance company.

Chemical Exposure


Toxic and chemical exposure can seem harmless at the time but can lead to serious health problems. Environmental contamination and toxic tort claims arise when a person has an identifiable personal injury or property damage as a result of toxic releases into the environment such as chemical exposure and pollution. If you or someone you know has suffered a chemical exposure injury, please contact the Cunard Law Firm.
   

Maritime Accidents / Jones Act


We represent boilermakers, captains, cooks, crewmen, drillers, divers, galleyhands, merchant marines, oil rig workers, passengers, pilots, roughnecks, roustabouts, sailors and seamen injured in maritime accidents.

Medical Accidents


We place great trust in those who provide our medical care. It is unfortunate when medical care providers are negligent. It is tragic when such negligence results in serious injury or death. Fortunately, you have recourse. Medical malpractice insurance exists for a reason. If a medical provider harms you or your loved one, you are entitled to seek compensation. If you have been involved in a medical accident injury and would like to learn more about your legal rights, please contact the Cunard Law Firm.
   

Motorcycle Accidents


Motorcycle accidents often end with grave results. Because drivers often fail to see the bikes until the crash, a high percentage of motorcycle accidents involve injury or death. And unlike larger vehicles, motorcycles do not offer the extensive safety features that cars do. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and would like to learn more about your legal rights, please contact the Cunard Law Firm.
   

Nursing Home Accidents


Whenever you are forced to institutionalize a loved one, you place your trust in the facility and those who work at the facility. You trust and believe that they will provide at least minimum standards of care for your loved one. Whenever that trust is misplaced and serious harm occurs, you have the right and the duty to prosecute a claim for their negligence. Please complete the form at CONTACT US. Your case will be reviewed at no charge to you. Contact us as soon as possible because there are time limits to file the claim and much work to be done before the applicable time period. If you or someone you know has suffered a nursing home injury, please contact the Cunard Law Firm.

Truck Accidents


Truck accidents often involve some type of negligence on the part of the truck driver, the trucking company, or both.

Other Accidents
