About Car Accidents


When you’re seriously injured in a car accident, your world can turn upside down in a matter of minutes. We understand how devastating this can be and know how complicated it is to wade through the legalities while recovering. In these hard times, we can be strong advocates for injured individuals and those grieving family members. We want to hear your story through a free consultation and discover if you have a case.

Car Accident Cases

Drunk Driving Accidents

Though the drunk driver will be criminally charged, you should know that the prosecutor in the criminal case does not represent you. For your own personal injury compensation and damages, you can file a separate civil lawsuit against the driver, and we can help you do just that.

Distracted Driving Accidents

In Louisiana, all activities that pull the driver’s attention away from the road is considered distracted driving with few exceptions. If you were involved in a car accident as a result of a distracted driver, you can file a lawsuit. Even if they were not ticketed by police, they can still be held accountable for the damage and injuries they caused you.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists

Though it is illegal to drive without auto insurance, roughly one in eight motorists drive every single day without it. Our experienced car accident lawyers can assist you in navigating your next steps after being involved in an accident with an uninsured/underinsured driver.

Strong evidence is key, and the statute of limitations is only one year for personal injury, so you must act fast. Our Lafayette and Lake Charles attorneys will be happy to help and see to it that you receive the justice you deserve.
