Commercial, 18 Wheeler, or Truck Accidents
Motor Vehicle accidents involving 18-wheeler tractor trailers or other commercial trucks can be some of the most dangerous types of incidents that may result in the worst of circumstances. When these accidents happen due to the negligence of the truck driver the trucker and their insurance company should be responsible for the damages to both property and person. You'll need an attorney that will fight for you and your families rights before these most heavy of circumstances causes even more suffering through the absence of the truck companies will to pay for their worker's mistakes. The injuries sustained in accidents involving commercial trucks can cause long term injuries or sometimes death of a loved one.

Maritime and Offshore Accidents
Accidents occurring off land can sometimes be difficult to deal with as the laws guiding them are many times different than those incidents occurring on land. That is why it is important for you to acquire representation with the highest level of experience in order to deal with the many laws guiding off shore incidents. We know working off shore can potentially be dangerous as it many times requires working with heavy moving machinery, o platforms raised to great heights, outside in the heat, and may become more complex due to wave action. For more information on specific case types we deal with or on the Acts governing maritime and offshore accidents please call us today.
Plant Explosions
Workers in the industrial sector face hazards and dangerous environments everyday. The constant fear of an explosion or fire hazard keeps all staff working at the utmost level of professionalism as the safety of their coworkers depends on this. When explosions happen they are many times the result of the employers or employees failing to maintain the equipment and machinery properly. The machinery used in plants is very complicated and must be inspected as well as maintained intensely by highly trained individuals before operations proceed, especially due to the heavy use of toxic and flammable materials used in the daily work routine. Something as small as a the end of a cigarette can produce a small fire that spreads out of control due to flammable materials in the work area, causing a slew of serious life threatening injuries. The attorneys at Naquin and Ward are largely familiar with the operations of a plant, and have further experience in representing many clients who have been laid victim to these horrific accidents. Survivors of plant explosions are cared for with the utmost respect as are the families of those who have lost loved ones in any plant explosion incident. We know how it feels to have little resources for help in these debilitating situations and want to secure a future for those negatively affected by negligence in the work place. Injuries can range from burns of all degrees, broken bones, and crushing injuries from falling debris. Call us today for free consultation on any injury sustained in a plant explosion.
Burn Injury
Burn injuries can be some of the most painful and enduring injuries any person may face. Heat, radiation, chemicals, and electricity can cause a burn injury and each type of burn is unique in nature. Whether it is a first, second or third degree burn the repercussions are likely to be dramatic. The possibilities of physical disfigurement along with the psychological damages from the incident, potential addictive problems caused by the use of multiple prescribed pain medications, and allotted time spent in rehabilitation all add up to an increased amount of stress. The bills associated with these problems are another large sum adding to the trauma of an already stressful situation. You deserve support in these times so that you can get back to your life one step at a time. We can help you bear the burden of medical bills, medical care, lost wages, and make sure your maximum settlement is justly allotted to the victim and their family.

Wrongful Death
No one can ever replace the ones you hold dearest to your heart. Losing a loved one is never easy, especially when their lives were cut short through no fault of their own. Often times the emotional toll is just as heavy as the financial burdens their death may cause, and the bills keep pilling up. Whether due to an accident on the road, a mishap in the workplace, medical malpractice, a defective product, or by other means the defending parties should be held responsible for their own negligence. Not only will this help you and your family, but could potentially save others from going through the same tragic scenario. We take the wrongful death of a family member as seriously as a tragedy in our lives. We will make sure that no matter what the cause of wrongful death that the powers held responsible will grant you the full entitlements you are owed.

Feel free to contact us at our offices for any questions you may have regarding wrongful death.
Unconstitutional or Negligent Police Action
The actions taken by the police force directly reflect upon our government. They are there to protect and serve the citizens of our beautiful country, and should be held responsible if they do not uphold this pledge. As citizens we all have rights and when those rights are infringed upon, even by our own government, we deserve a fair answer to make up for these rights being stolen from us. Many scenarios such as police brutality, police negligence along with unlawful search and seizure, just to name a few, can all classify as unconstitutional police action. Do not let your rights be taken away from you. Keep yourself safe with the comfort of knowing you are protected by you local and state governments. Call us today if you feel you have recently fallen victim to any sort of unconstitutional or negligent police action.
Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice refers to a healthcare providers misconduct or medical negligence that results in personal injury. In Louisiana, medical malpractice is a legal term of art referring to a claim of negligence brought against a medical healthcare provider. Many times these injuries can be serious arising from surgical errors, premature hospital release, misdiagnosis, and improper prescription just to name a few case types. You need an attorney that understands medical related issues as well as the legal procedures involved in bringing and prosecuting a medical malpractice claim as these claims can often times turn complex. Injuries are sometimes not discovered till long after medical treatment. Also, before a claim can be filed it must be evaluated by a medical review panel that in Louisiana is comprised of three doctors with experience in the practice area of the alleged malpractice suit. Naquin and Ward have dealt with these cases before, know how the legal system works, and have medical experts at their side that assist them in understanding all of the details of the case. If you think you may have been negatively affected by medical malpractice call us today to start getting answers.
