Personal Injury
If you have been injured in an accident or by the negligence of someone else, you have reached the right website.  I am Alfred C. Barrera, personal injury attorney handling accidents of any kind in New Orleans, Jefferson and throughout Louisiana.  I have been practicing law since 1994 and have the experience and proven record of success getting people what they deserve. 
Motor Vehicle Accidents
The team of Alfred Barrera & Associates encourages all accident victims to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.  As time passes, evidence can be lost and witnesses may forget important details.  Also, it is important that you speak to our office before you speak to the insurance companies, because they have trained professionals who will contact you in an effort to get you to settle quickly for much less than you deserve.
Practical Tips if you are in a Vehicle Accident:
As a practical note, if you should get into an automobile accident caused by another, call and wait for the police.   Do not move your vehicles until the police arrive if at all possible.  Should you need to move your vehicle, take photographs of the scene and the vehicles from every angle.  Be sure to include the license plate(s) of the other vehicles involved as well as the person driving the vehicle(s) in case anyone flees the scene.   Avoid apologizing for anything and don’t admit to anything to anyone at the scene.   Collect your thoughts and make every attempt to express yourself clearly to the responding officer(s).  Avoid being rude to the officers no matter how they react.
Seek immediate medical attention at the scene if necessary.  Many times injured persons are wrapped-up in the excitement of the moment and with the adrenaline rush they do not recognize any pain at the scene.  Later that evening or the following days they begin to experience pain and should seek immediate medical attention either at the emergency room, primary care physician or by contacting our office to arrange treatment with a doctor.
It is important that you contact our office before you speak to the insurance companies before you proceed further.
Premises Liability & Slip-and-Fall Accidents
If you get hurt on someone else’s property, whether by falling objects, dog bites, slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents, it is important that you seek an experienced personal injury attorney.  These cases vary in how they should be handled.  For example, a trip-and-fall at a retailer may involve a temporary defect—substance on the floor or item in the isle, which may require immediate attention to preserve evidence. 
I have been handling premises cases since 1994.  From dog bite cases to design and construction defects, I have the experience to handle your case.  The laws have changed over the years, but having an experienced attorney will make or break your case.
Accidents at the Workplace
If you have been hurt on the job, you should seek the assistance of an experienced workplace accident lawyer as soon as possible. In addition to your wage losses, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other losses.
With some workplace accidents, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim in addition to any workers' compensation benefits you may be entitled.  For example, if your injury was caused by a negligent third party such as a careless driver or independent contractor, you may have a third-party action against the negligent party.  You could then seek compensation for pain and suffering and other damages not covered under workers' compensation.
