What Do We Offer That Other Bayou Cane Personal Injury Lawyers Don't? We Treat You Like One of Our Own

Injured in a Wreck and Looking for a Bayou Cane Car Accident Lawyer?

If you live in Bayou Cane Louisiana, you’re probably all too familiar with cars speeding down Highway 90, big work trucks who think they own the road on LA 311, and distracted drivers on their cell phones running red lights on West Main Street and West Park Avenue.

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.

It’s a scary fact that automobile accidents are the biggest cause of personal injuries in Bayou Cane. 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 Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney in Bayou Cane, LA?

We get that you probably like to handle things on your own. Like most Terrebonne Parish residents, you are hard-working, and probably not the type to sue someone. We understand and respect that. Just keep in mind that the accident wasn’t your fault and now you have to deal with the aftermath of a painful, debilitating injury.

Going against the insurance company by yourself isn’t easy. The insurance companies will try their best to avoid paying you the full amount damages after a car crash.

A local personal injury attorney will work with your doctors to get a full understanding of the severity of your injury and how that injury has impacted your daily life. That knowledge will be used to make sure your settlement value is fair and covers your losses.

Damages that your attorney will fight for include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Future medical bills
  • Future lost wages

Which Bayou Cane Personal Injury Attorney is the Right One? There Are so Many!

After your accident, you may have been tempted to call that flashy lawyer you saw on TV or on that big billboard along Highway 90. You know who we’re talking about. The ones with the silly jingles and over-the-top commercials. And you’re not the only one. With so much exposure, they get A LOT of clients. You can hire them, but you’ll be lucky not to be treated like just another client. Just another case.

What we have that the big TV firms don’t even come close to offering is that we make it personal. We welcome you in as part of the family and fight for you like one of our own.

You need someone whose only interest is your best interest. Someone who will compassionately fight hard for you against the big bullies of the world – like insurance companies.

When you are injured in a wreck, you don't just need a car accident lawyer—you need a trustworthy advocate and confidant. Someone who will understand the physical pain and stress you are experiencing.

We only accept a limited number of cases each year because we want to ensure you and your case receive the time and attention that you deserve.

Our Bayou Cane Truck Accident Lawyer Will Help You With Your Claim

Living in Bayou Cane, it’s almost impossible to avoid Highway 90. When an accident occurs with an 18 wheeler, the effects are often catastrophic and the victim is left with very serious personal injuries. Occasionally wrongful death can tragically result from an 18 wheeler wreck.

Accidents involving large work trucks or 18 wheelers are much more serious than your average car crash and getting the trucking company to pay for your injuries can be difficult. The trucking companies usually have a team of lawyers skilled in deflecting accountability. They may say that the accident wasn’t their fault, or they may try to get you to settle out right away.

Depending on how you were hit and the type of injury you received, it may take a while for you to feel 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. These same rules apply for every type of automobile accident.
