Car and truck wrecks are some of the most common causes of personal injury in Houma, LA. If you live in Houma, you’re probably all too familiar with cars speeding down Highway 90, big work trucks who think they own the roads, and distracted drivers on their cell phones.
Everyone has the right to feel safe on the roads. When these rights are violated by the careless actions of a reckless driver, that person must be held accountable.
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident or suffered a personal injury because of someone else’s negligence, you may be owed compensation.
Why Hire a Houma Personal Injury Attorney?
Most Houma residents are hard-working, have never needed to hire a lawyer, and certainly aren’t the type of people who go around suing everyone.
Keep in mind that the accident wasn’t your fault and now you have to deal with the aftermath of a painful, debilitating injury. On top of that, the insurance companies will usually do just about anything to avoid paying you the full amount of compensation that you deserve.
There’s no shame in wanting your medical bills to be paid, your property replaced, and your lost wages – and possibly future lost wages- to be covered. That isn’t too much to ask for.
You can go it alone and deal with the insurance company yourself, but it’s not recommended. The insurance company will want you to settle out quickly, but depending on what happened during your accident, you may not be feeling the full effects of your injury.
Some injuries like back injuries and head trauma may take several weeks and many trips to the doctor to get fully diagnosed. If you sign paperwork with the insurance company right after your accident, you may lose your right to compensation for future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
You need an experienced local personal injury attorney. Our team has experience with Houma car accidents and personal injuries.

We then use that knowledge against the insurance company to make sure your settlement is fair and is the highest amount possible. Our goal is to make you feel whole again. That is our highest priority.

Don’t Handle Your 18 Wheeler Claim on Your Own! You Need an Experienced Houma Truck Accident Attorney
Large truck and 18 wheeler accidents result in some of the most devastating and life-altering personal injuries, and on occasion, some have tragic consequences.
Living in Houma, it is nearly impossible to avoid Highway 90 and the hundreds of work trucks and 18 wheelers that drive through each day. If you were injured by a large work truck or 18 wheeler, you may be considering handling the case yourself. You can do this, but it isn’t wise.
The trucking companies can afford to hire teams of lawyers who are very skilled at deflecting accountability. They may say that the accident wasn’t their fault or that it was the fault of the driver and the company had nothing to do with it.
The trucking company’s number one priority is their bottom line, not your injury or well-being.
