About the Firm

Highly Qualified Baton Rouge Injury Attorneys

Because experience matters

Our experienced injury attorneys at Marks and Lear PLC represent only the severely injured and those who have lost a loved one through the fault of another. Whether injury or death was caused by an accident on a roadway or on a waterway (including off the coast of Louisiana), whether caused by unsafe equipment or the workplace — the Baton Rouge legal team at Marks and Lear PLC have the experience and skills needed to obtain just compensation for your loss.

Our firm focuses on personal injury, automobile accidents, industrial accidents, catastrophic injuries and maritime accidents.

Skilled legal team in Baton Rouge

As knowledgeable accident lawyers, our team works with individuals and surviving families affected by catastrophic auto accidents. The attorneys working on a case fully investigate if the car crash was the fault of another driver, a company responsible for maintenance of a vehicle that malfunctioned, the manufacturer of a defective auto part in a product liability claim or a municipality that failed to maintain a safe roadway.

In such auto accident claims, an attorney should have experience in personal injury law and be equally familiar with forensics and expert witnesses who can prove fault in car wreck events. For example, our experienced Baton Rouge accident lawyers demonstrate to the court the long-term financial losses suffered by an individual or family. Such losses can include past and future wages as well as expenses related to healthcare. Additional compensation may be awarded for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment.

In addition to achieving financial compensation for accident victims, a net effect of personal injury and wrongful death litigation is that it makes for a safer world. Auto manufacturers, road builders and ship operators have financial incentive to ensure safer vehicles and operations.

The experience you need

Having earned the highest AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, the only peer review rating service nationally recognized by other attorneys and judges, our law firm is listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. Over the years, members of the firm have served as President of the Louisiana Association for Justice, served on the Louisiana Courts of Appeal, been published in the Louisiana State University Law Review and been elected to the Louisiana State University Law School Hall of Fame. In cases of serious injury or death, you should not hesitate to inquire into our track record and reputation. In fact, we welcome it. We can also ask one or more of our thousands of clients to discuss with you how we have helped them.

We are located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and have had an active litigation practice in both State and Federal Courts since 1978. As injury lawyers, we also work jointly with attorneys located in Texas and Mississippi. Our injury firm has a reputation for thorough and professional handling of cases with personal attention to our clients’ needs. Though most cases settle because of preparation for trial from the outset, our trial presentations are guided by two goals — when the trial is over, our clients are confident that they have had their day in court and opposing attorneys, whoever they may be, will be less likely in the future to refuse a fair settlement offer.
