Louisiana Personal Injury Attorney


It is essential that you are well-informed about your rights and the legal avenues available to pursue financial compensation when you have been injured in an accident. Our clients know they are receiving the experience and maximum legal power necessary to get the highest possible settlement and or verdict.

Through a personal injury claim, you and your family may be eligible to receive financial reimbursement for any physical and emotional damages caused by the negligence of another.

We Are Not Afraid To Go To Trial

Most claims can be negotiated and settled out of the courtroom. Settling out of court saves you from the hassle of a trial. You can collect an agreed upon sum and forgo future legal actions related to the injury or incident in question.

Injury cases are valued based on the injury in question and the insurance coverage available. However, insurance companies are not in the business to pay settlements. They want to protect their bottom line. If a fair settlement can’t be agreed upon, a personal injury lawsuit is filed.

We work with insurance companies and in courtrooms on a daily basis. We know how to prepare our clients for court. It is our job and our goal to ensure that your voice is heard.

The opposing legal team will do everything they can to show that their client is not liable. If your injures are from no fault of your own, you need someone that can fight for your right to fair compensation. You need someone that will not take no for an answer.

Choosing the right lawyer is crucial. You need an lawyer that is not afraid to bring your case to trial if a there cannot be a reasonable settlement. The personal injury attorneys on our team are fearless trial attorneys.

The faster we are able to get to work on your case, the better. Insurance companies will begin to pressure you. They will want you to settle with low-ball settlement offers. Sometimes, evidence may go missing. Witnesses may become forgetful. The scene of the accident might become compromised. If your case involves a company or corporation, a cover-up may very well begin.

The temptation to settle out-of-court is understandable. Medical bills are piling up and you need money now. If you have injuries or damages, it’s best to let an attorney review your case before you decide to settle.
