Tenacious New Orleans Personal Injury Attorney Fights for the Compensation You Deserve

Dedicated Louisiana lawyer presses for full, fair damages for clients

No one plans to have their life disrupted by a personal injury. But suddenly one day a truck accident or a fall on uneven pavement can turn your world upside down. Insurance companies may seem helpful at first, but they’re businesses whose bottom line is to save the company money — not pay out claims no matter how worthy they are. That’s why you need a tireless legal advocate who will press them for the damages you deserve. At the Law Office of Steven J. Rando, LLC, I take care of the legal concerns so that you can focus on making a full recovery. Since 1994, I have represented clients throughout the New Orleans area in their personal injury claims, and I am ready to put my experience to work to help you obtain the maximum available compensation for the losses you’ve incurred.

Dedicated advocate represents victims of vehicle accidents

When you’ve been injured in crash, worries about medical bills, legal liability and insurance claims can quickly become overwhelming, but advice from an experienced attorney can make all the difference. I represent accident victims in New Orleans and the surrounding area in claims stemming from:

  • Auto accidents — A car crash can leave victims with serious injuries, leading to ongoing medical expenses, lost wages and property damage. If you’ve been in a car or motorcycle accident in Louisiana, which is a fault state when it comes to auto insurance, you can file a claim with your own insurer, with the other driver’s carrier or file a personal injury claim. I can ensure the compensation you receive fully accounts for the harm you’ve suffered.
  • Truck accidents — Since trucks weigh so much more and take so much longer to stop than other vehicles, they pose great danger on the roads. For that reason, trucking companies are required to follow safety regulations. If you’ve been in a collision with a truck, I can investigate to see whether those regulations were violated and determine whether the trucking company, the driver, or another party was responsible for your accident.
  • Wrongful death claims — Taking legal action after the death of a loved one can be difficult, but if a family member “dies due to the fault of another,” per the Louisiana Code, surviving spouses, children, parents, siblings and grandparents (in that order) may file a wrongful death claim. I can help you recover damages for funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, among other compensation.

In any of these cases, your time is limited in filing a claim. And to collect and preserve evidence, it’s important to secure legal representation for your claim as soon as possible. I offer a free consultation so we can evaluate your case and discuss a plan of action.

Types of compensation available in your claim

When a personal injury is caused by the negligence of another, it means that the individual or entity at fault owed a duty of care to the injured person but failed to live up to that duty. For instance, a landlord may have failed to repair a loose tread on a poorly lighted staircase, or a driver may have failed to look both ways before pulling out of a driveway. In each case, the person injured as a result of that negligence may be entitled to compensation to cover both economic harm, such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as noneconomic harm, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment or companionship. This compensation is referred to as damages. By carefully evaluating the circumstances of your accident, I will help you seek the damages you deserve.
