Personal Injury Lawyers That Care

Once we have been retained, we will immediately begin gathering the evidence needed for a successful adjudication.  We will work with the insurance companies and highlight the strengths of your case.  Once your claim is filed in court, we will fight every step of the way to ensure you get the result you deserve.  While many cases settle, we will not hesitate to go to trial if the insurance company is unreasonable at the negotiation table.


In most cases you have a limited time to file your case.  The prescriptive period for most injuries in Louisiana is one year from the date of the accident.  Thus, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible.  If possible, take pictures after your accident, call your insurance company, and get insurance information from the other parties.  If possible, wait for an accident report; but if severely injured, seek medical treatment immediately.

    In Personal Injury
    What is the Louisiana Direct Action Statute? Louisiana is a “direct action” state, meaning a plaintiff may name an insurer in a lawsuit.  In most other states, if you bring a personal injury lawsuit, you cannot name the insurance carrier in that lawsuit.  Louisiana on the other hand was one of the first to enact a direct action statute.  It expresses Louisiana’s long public policy that “an insurance policy against liability is not issued primarily for the protection of the [READ MORE]

    What is Comparative Fault? The term “comparative fault” refers to a system of apportioning damages between negligent parties based on their proportionate shares of fault.  Under a comparative fault system, a plaintiff’s negligence will not completely bar recovery like states that employ the harsh contributory negligence rule, but it will reduce the amount of damages the plaintiff can recover based on the plaintiff’s percentage of fault.
