I Work Directly With My Clients I know how to combat the tactics insurance adjusters and insurance defense lawyers use. They try to minimize your injuries. They expect you to take their low settlement offer and go away. I will fight to get you a fair settlement or I will take your case to court. That's why I prepare every case for trial from the first day. When the insurance company sees how serious we are about getting you every bit of the compensation you may be entitled to, they come prepared to negotiate fairly. A Lawyer Who Cares About Your Rights I represent clients throughout Louisiana in all types of personal injury and wrongful death cases, such as: Maritime accidents: Workers injured in an oil rig accident or copter crash while traveling to an oil rig, as well as fishing trawler injuries and all other types of boating and shipping accidents, at sea, on the docks and in between. Motor vehicle accidents: Including 18-wheeler truck accidents, car wrecks and motorcycle accidents. On-the-job injuries and workers' compensation claims Car accidents and 18 wheeler accidents.
