Areas of Law Description

- Personal Injury

Personal injury in a negligence, products liability, or workers compensation case involves bodily injury to a person such as a bruise, broken bone, pulled muscle or aggravation of a pre-existing condition. Our seasoned personal injury attorneys handle personal injury matters including: negligence; comparative and contributory negligence; intentional torts; personal injury damages; product liability; and statutes of limitations.

- Insurance Bad Faith

Louisiana law imposes penalties on insurers who arbitrarily or capriciously fail to pay a claim. In order to recover the statutory penalties, a claimant must submit a satisfactory proof of loss and show that the insurer failed to pay the claim within the applicable statutory period either without probable cause or in an arbitrary and capricious manner. If you need help with your Louisiana Bad Faith Insurance Claim, we can help.
