Injuries can come at a moment's notice and can devastate a person's life. When moments like these happen, it's important to have an experienced personal injury attorney like Peter Diiorio on your side.
At New Orleans Legal, we are a personal injury, workers compensation and civil litigation trial practice dedicated to solving problems and making things right. Our goal in all legal matters is to provide each and every client with individualized attention, diligent representation, and prompt communication. Attorney Peter J. Diiorio has seen the toll litigation takes on people; as such, his goal is to get his clients through the litigation process as quickly and efficiently as possible. When clients are injured, New Orleans Legal makes getting them prompt medical care a number one priority.
New Orleans Legal Fights for the Rights of Our Clients
We finance personal injury claims entirely, so those left injured, unable to work, and facing financial devastation can finally let go of some of the anxiety, stress, and worry. Peter J. Diiorio will do everything in his power to ensure clients facing the trauma of a personal injury claim will receive the maximum recovery, including money for medical expenses (current and future), lost wages (current and future), pain and suffering damages, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment and any other damages the client is entitled to receive.
We Want to Be the Advocate in Your Corner When Life Throws You a Curve
Clients facing a legal problem, or an insurance dispute or denial, also need an advocate in their corner—someone to step up and go toe to toe with a huge insurance company, demanding the company follow through with their promises. As with personal injury claims, our clients don’t need to come to us with money—we will finance the case in its entirety, taking immediate, aggressive action to force a recalcitrant insurance company to pay the client what he or she is owed. Whether a client faces a business dispute, a succession dispute, a bad-faith insurance claim, an insurance denial, or is facing the uncertainty of a personal injury, Peter Diiorio will work hard to secure a better future—financial, physical, and mental—for his clients.

Finally, we have leading experts in the areas of accident reconstruction, life-planning, construction, and insurance to ensure our clients’ cases are fully supported.
Despite the fact that insurance companies are often portrayed as our “friends,” therewhen we need them most, in reality, insurance companies often refuse to honor their promise to take care of us in return for the monthly premiums we faithfully pay. When this happens, New Orleans Legal steps in aggressively on behalf of their clients.
My injury was of a sensitive nature, and Peter was very compassionate and understanding about what I was going through. Peter was an excellent listener, and because of that was able to identify what I really wanted done in my case. And then he got it done. I was very happy with the settlement I received and even more happy with the speed at which I was able to get the settlement. Peter is an honest, very knowledgeable, and hard-working attorney..." - Ricky Noel, Sr. More Testimonials
Why Do We Do What We Do?
We focus on the types of cases we do so we can help those in need. Perhaps a client has been in an accident through no fault of his or her own and is left injured, facing mountains of medical bills, possibly unable to get the medical treatment needed. The injured person may have been unable to return to work, therefore, unable to pay even normal monthly expenses. If the injuries are particularly severe, the individual’s life may be changed forever, leaving them hurting—financially, physically, and emotionally—not knowing where to turn. Attorney Peter J. Diiorio believes New Orleans Legal can alleviate much of the suffering these individuals are feeling, helping them see a future with possibilities.
Attorney Peter Diiorio Believes in Each and Every Client
Peter J. Diiorio and New Orleans Legal believe deeply in the clients we represent—Louisiana individuals, families, and small businesses. We truly care about our clients, which means we always put them first. The difference between New Orleans Legal and many other law firms is personalization. We first get to know our clients, understanding their needs, and what they hope to gain from their lawsuit or claim. We make sure we are always available to our clients, even when that means going to them when they are unable to come to us. We are fully committed to seeing our clients’ cases through to the end, no matter the odds, no matter the costs.
How New Orleans Legal Helps Our Clients
The legal areas we focus on are those that will significantly help Louisiana residents. These areas include:
When an individual is injured—through no fault of his or her own—the future can look grim. Imagine being left injured, perhaps unable to work and make a living, maybe even unable to get the medical treatments needed to heal. Those involved in car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and those who are the victims of impaired drivers desperately need help. They need help to get the medical treatments they need, help to recover lost wages, so they are not left financially devastated, and help to recover medical expenses they have been attempting to pay.
Those who have been injured by an uninsured or underinsured driver are facing even more challenges. Often, an uninsured driver may attempt to flee the scene, thus avoiding more legal trouble for the lack of insurance. Or, a driver may be underinsured, without sufficient insurance to fully cover the damages incurred. Individuals may also have been injured in a slip and fall accident due to hazards on the property, or other premise liability issues. No matter the situation, New Orleans Legal will aggressively fight for each and every client who has suffered a personal injury. The personal injury cases we pursue on behalf of our clients include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Wrongful Death Claims
- Premises Liability Claims
- Drunk Driving Claims
- Uninsured/Underinsured Claims
Those injured at work expect that the state workers compensation fund will cover their injuries and lost wages—after all, that’s how the system is supposed to work. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and a fair and beneficial settlement is not always the outcome of a work injury. When a legitimate workers compensation claim is denied, it is essential to have a strong legal advocate to fight for what is right and just. New Orleans Legal can help clients with the following workers comp issues:
- Lost Wage Claims
- Medical Treatment Claims
- Settlement Representation
- Appealing a Denial
Despite the fact that insurance companies are often portrayed as our “friends,” there when we need them most, in reality, insurance companies often refuse to honor their promise to take care of us in return for the monthly premiums we faithfully pay. When this happens, New Orleans Legal steps in aggressively on behalf of their clients. Whether the insurance company is denying payment, delaying payment, or paying much less than the claim is worth, New Orleans Legal will fight to get what their clients are owed, never hesitating to face even the biggest insurance company.
Whether a client has made a homeowner’s claim that the insurance company refused to honor or a medical claim that the insurance company is denying, Peter Diiorio and New Orleans Legal advocate for their clients. New Orleans Legal also handles bad faith insurance claims on behalf of their clients, as well as claims by beneficiaries of a life insurance policy that have been denied the proceeds of the policy.
