Here at Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC, we have extensive experience in personal injury representation. Have you suffered an injury while on the job, or been bitten by an aggressive dog? Or have you suffered a serious burn or slipped and suffered an injury from a fall due to someone’s negligence?

Burn Injuries

Even a slight burn injury may be one of the most difficult to recover from. Severe burns often result in disfigurement and severe pain and are extraordinarily difficult to recover from; the victim may require rehabilitation or, in the worst case, care givers.

CATASTROPHIC INJURIES

Brain Injury | Spinal Cord Injuries

Severe injuries can have life-long debilitating effects. The attorneys at Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC can help you earn valuable compensation to ease your financial distress. Brain injuries and spinal cord injuries are two of the more common catastrophic injuries that we practice representation for.

BRAIN INJURIES

Brain injuries can include anything from a mild concussion to severe damage. Major brain injuries are referred to as Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI.) As the brain controls not only the ability to think, reason and interact, but also controls the rest of the body, an injury to the brain has the potential to affect many functions; in severe cases, a TBI can completely incapacitate a previously normal individual. Chris J. Roy Jr., APLC has provided aggressive legal representation for clients in the Alexandria, Louisiana, area for 27 years. Our attorneys take every case seriously, but we are particularly cognizant of how a brain injury can permanently change a person’s life. Contact us today for a FREE consultation.

SPINAL INJURIES

The effects of spinal cord injuries can range from discomfort to complete paralysis. Generally, most spinal cord injuries are irreversible. While it is possible to regain some function, this is the most debilitating of spinal injuries. Incomplete spinal cord injuries, while not as serious as complete, can still be devastating. Even incomplete injuries may result in loss of function, but the opportunity for even a marginal recovery is higher than if the spine is completely severed. Often, ongoing treatment and modifications to living areas are needed to assist the injured party with their daily functions and quality of life. At Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC, we understand the devastation that these injuries can bring to your life. Let us help you in obtain a legal outcome that can assist in lifting the emotional and financial burdens your injury has caused.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Birth Defects | Birth Injuries | Emergency Room Errors | Surgical Errors

Medical malpractice occurs each and every day, and as a result countless people are injured or even killed. This is the result of a doctor or medical facility being negligent in the care of their patient.

We all hear the stories about the doctor who performed a surgery on the wrong arm or the nurse who gave a patient ten times the amount of medication that they were supposed to – but for some reason we never think this type of thing will happen to us. If a medical professional has harmed you or your loved one, turn to Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC. We have handled countless malpractice cases since we opened our doors in 1989.

NURSING HOME ABUSE

A nursing home is an establishment entrusted with the care of the elderly. However, each and every day there are reports of abuse in these facilities. When you place your loved one in a nursing home, you are trusting that he or she will receive the best care possible. When this does not happen it can be devastating to the victim as well as to their family members. If you suspect that your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse, you need to contact Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC right away for a FREE consultation.

WRONGFUL DEATH

Wrongful death occurs when someone dies through another’s actions, failure to act, negligence or misconduct. For example, if a company fails to lock off or warn about unsafe stairs and an individual dies in their collapse, the company is liable for wrongful death. Another example would be a vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver in which someone is killed; criminal charges may be filed, and the drunk driver may be sued in civil court for damages. Through our thorough preparation and our aggressive approach, we know how to build a winning case and obtain both compensation and justice for our clients.

MARITIME LAW

Injuries that happen on the water are bound by a different set of laws, known as maritime law. People who are injured in these situations need attorneys who are well acquainted with the specialized laws that govern shipboard injuries. Chris J. Roy, Jr. has been a practicing attorney for almost 30 years, and he has experience in dealing with personal injury and maritime law cases. Contact us today for a FREE consultation.

INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT INJURIES

The results of accidents on an industrial work-site can be tragic. It is important to note that aside from worker’s compensation if an injury occurs, the employer may not be the only one liable: it may be possible to seek compensation from other sources. For example, the manufacturer of a machine that malfunctioned, the independent safety inspector that failed to notice dangerous and substandard practices, and others. Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC can help ease your trouble and pain by offering legal counsel for workplace injuries, liability, and negligence. You may be able to receive compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

PREMISES LIABILITY

Premises liability is an area of law that invokes liability onto the individual who possesses the property when a visitor is injured. Injuries resulting from the following occurrences may prompt a premises liability action: slip and fall, improper signage, uneven walkways or sidewalks, inadequate security, and failure of a property possessor to warn of defective conditions. There are numerous injuries that can result from the negligence of a property owner. Many are minor injuries, such as sprains or contusions; but sometimes even accidents like slips or falls can cause severe injuries or death. Contact us today if you have suffered an injury from any of these incidents on another person’s property.

DOG BITE INJURY

There are provisions in Louisiana law that makes dog owners responsible for the care and actions of their pets. As a result, if a dog bites a human, it is the owners that are liable for any injuries or financial considerations that arise as a result. A dog bite can also be an incredibly dangerous injury. The dog bite itself may do a large amount of damage, not the least of which is disfigurement, tearing blood vessels and tissue; the bacteria from a dog’s mouth may cause infections, which can be more dangerous than the bite itself, causing hospitalization and rehabilitative care in some cases. In addition, a dog bite may do psychological damage, leaving the victim with debilitating fears and anxiety. The law provides for penalties, both civil and criminal, when owners fail to live up to their responsibilities. If you have been the victim of a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation. Chris J. Roy, Jr. APLC will closely examine the facts and circumstances of your claim and give you honest, straightforward information you can count on.

EXPUNGEMENT

Criminal charges, arrests and/or convictions can have serious effects on a person’s professional and private life, and Louisiana expungement lawyers are the proactive way to remove some felony convictions, misdemeanor convictions, and arrests from a person’s record. Chris J. Roy, Jr. can help you with these issues through a process called expungement.
