Cars and Motorcycles

Sometimes a vehicular accident is a straightforward event. One car runs into another and the result is minor damage to property. However, when the resulting injuries are grave, or when the crash involves negligence, we need to take a closer look. A host of factors—from road conditions to auto manufacturer defaults—can contribute to the eventual compensation the injured party may receive.

Make no mistake: serious injuries sustained from automobile and motorcycle accidents require substantial compensation, because their effects can be serious and long-lasting. Spinal and back injuries can require a lifetime of care. Complex, multiple fractures can require surgery and lengthy rehabilitation times. Burn injuries can incur years of pain, surgery, and permanent scars. And brain injuries can change lives and transform families.

Injuries cost money—including medical expenses, lost income, and future rehabilitation. When it comes to seeking compensation for automobile wrecks and truck crashes, an in-depth investigation can make a world of difference.
At Huber, Slack, Thomas & Marcelle, we’re sure to examine every opportunity for compensation.

When it comes to automobile accidents, we make sure that we’re getting the whole story. In addition to police reports and accident reconstructions, we examine other factors to determine an accident’s causes. For instance, did the road contribute? Dangerous roads can be a significant factor, due to insufficient or inaccurate signage, poorly marked construction zones, potholes, dangerous shoulders, or gravel or sand in the road. Was a manufacturer defect a factor? We have extensive experience with product liability cases, and we know that proving that a dangerous product contributed to the severity of an accident can mean better compensation for our plaintiffs.

Bicycles and Pedestrians

Cyclists are among the most vulnerable users of our roads and streets. We’re avid commuter and recreational cyclists ourselves, so we know the struggle to share the road firsthand. From car doors to careless motorists to poor roadway conditions, bicycle riders face a host of unique threats.

When a cyclist is injured due to a negligent, reckless, or malicious driver, or due to poorly maintained streets, the cyclist
may be entitled to compensation for their harms and losses.

Bicycle collisions often involve disputed liability, hinging on which party caused the accident. And so, we often employ investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and three-dimensional modelers to recreate the situation based on forensic evidence. This allows jurors to see what happened firsthand.

Boats and Vessels – Maritime/Jones Act

Even though working offshore can be a high-risk occupation, workers should not reasonably expect to be injured on the job. We are well versed in all manners of maritime law and are ready to provide proven legal advice and representation to those who have suffered injuries offshore.

Throughout the Gulf of Mexico and the coastal regions of Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi, seamen, dockworkers, and oil & gas industry employees are often exposed to dangerous working conditions. Maritime injuries can occur as the result of diving, explosions, faulty equipment, crane failure, electrocution, vessel collision, line handling accidents, slip and falls, personnel basket transfer incidents, or helicopter crashes.

Our maritime lawyers are uniquely qualified to represent maritime workers and their families in serious injury or wrongful death claims resulting from accidents occurring at sea, in coastal areas, or on inland waters.

Mississippi, and nationwide.

Premises Liability

Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises. When they fail to do so, and someone is harmed as a result of their negligence, there may be cause for a premises liability suit. While these lawsuits can be difficult—and  while each case is unique—a thorough investigation can potentially prove owner negligence and liability.

At Huber Slack, we investigate potential premises cases for several issues, including whether the property owner knew
of the problem and had time to correct it. Additionally, we look for issues such as a lack of maintenance or negligent security. We use expert witnesses such as engineers, architects, maintenance experts and others can to help us understand how an accident happened and whether the owner could have prevented the accident.

Products Liability

When manufacturing defects, design flaws, or lack of proper warning labels and information lead to injury or harm, compensation may be in order. These cases can involve automobiles, watercraft, children’s toys, child safety seats, industrial machinery, recreational products, tires, and safety or sporting equipment. Additionally, these cases can involve medical devices and pharmaceuticals.

At Huber, Slack, Thomas & Marcelle, we know that in product liability cases, expert witnesses can be essential. They can provide testimony about how the product was dangerously designed or manufactured. Over the past two decades, we’ve amassed a wealth of knowledge through our work with expert witnesses across the country.
