Car Accident & Collision Attorney
Many people are driving properly following the rules of the road when a negligent driver changes everything in a mere instant. Medical bills are mounting and many people are unable to return to work, support themselves or pay their monthly bills after an accident. When the insurance company offers those injured by another driver’s negligence a small settlement, feelings of frustration and anxiety can set in. Hiring a strong personal injury attorney to negotiate with insurance can make all the difference in a person’s life.
Injured following a Truck Accident?
Due to the sheer size of a commercial truck, it is highly likely those in the smaller passenger vehicle will suffer serious, even fatal injuries. Truck accidents are unique because liability can be spread across parties. The truck driver may have been at fault. The trucking company may have hired an inexperienced driver or failed to complete a thorough background check. The loading company may have improperly loaded the cargo, causing an accident. The maintenance company may not have checked the truck out thoroughly. Or, the manufacturer of the truck may have sold a defective part. Because of this, it is necessary to have an experienced truck accident lawyer following an accident with injuries.
What is a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death claim is when someone is injured by the another’s negligence and the injuries cause death. The loved ones of the decedent can file a wrongful death claim for funeral expenses, lost future wages, and other damages as well.
Premises Liability Claims
Property owners are required to maintain their property in a reasonably safe manner, free from hazards and dangers. A slip and fall accident is handled under premises liability law, as are certain other accidents.
Drunk Driving Claims
Individuals injured by a drunk driver must prove the driver was at fault for their injuries. New Orleans Legal helps those injured by an impaired driver recover damages for their injuries, lost wages, and more.
What Is an Uninsured/Underinsured Claim in Louisiana?
All states require auto insurance, but many drivers do not have it. Those hit by an uninsured driver or an underinsured driver face even more obstacles to getting their lives back to normal; however, New Orleans Legal attorneys can help speed that process along.

We make sure those injured on the job receive the benefits they are entitled to receive, including lost wages and medical bills paid, and that they receive necessary medical treatment. While some workers compensation injuries are minor, many others can leave catastrophic injuries, or even fatalities, in their wake. New Orleans Legal can help with:
Did an Insurance Company Deny Your Claim?
New Orleans Legal helps individuals involved in insurance disputes, whether that dispute relates to property insurance, homeowners insurance, flood insurance, or other natural disasters. We will step in when insurance companies refuse to pay the full amount or anything of what they should.

We will aggressively pursue resolution for our clients, through a trial or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
