All across America, automobile accidents are a daily occurrence and the same is true in Thibodaux, Louisiana. It seems as though some people are just too busy to put down their phones or are in too much of a hurry to pay attention to what is going on around them.
The selfish actions of a few negligent drivers can have serious life-changing consequences. It’s a relief that with so many accidents most are relatively minor, though unfortunately, many have long-lasting effects, and a few are tragically fatal.
Everyone in Thibodaux has the right to feel safe on the road, but when those rights are violated by a reckless, inattentive driver, that person should be held accountable.
Why You Need an Experienced Thibodaux Personal Injury Attorney
Regardless of what type of wreck you were in, a local personal injury attorney will help you obtain a fair settlement that covers all your damages.
Like most hard-working people in Thibodaux, you probably aren’t the type sue and like to handle things on your own. And we respect that. Just keep in mind that the accident wasn’t your fault and now you’re left with the aftermath of a serious personal injury.
Hiring a personal injury lawyer will prevent you from making costly mistakes. For starters, the insurance company may want to settle with you shortly after the accident.
Don’t do this!
Some injuries like head trauma and back injuries may take several weeks and several trips to the doctor to fully diagnose. You may not be aware of the full extent of your injuries in the days after your accident, and if you sign anything, you may be waiving your right to full compensation.
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 affected your everyday life. That knowledge will be used to make sure your settlement value is fair and covers all your medical bills and expenses.
Damages that your attorney will fight for include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Physical therapy
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Future medical bills
- Future lost wages
How do I Hire the Right Lawyer? There Are so Many Personal Injury Attorneys!
Yes, there are A LOT of personal injury attorneys out there. With so many lawyers advertising their services, choosing the right one can be difficult.
You may be tempted to contact one of those “big-time” lawyers you saw on TV or on a gigantic billboard. And you’re not the only one. But are they actually any good? Or do they seem “big-time” because they pay so much advertising? With so much exposure, their client base is huge. You can hire them but don’t be surprised if you end up feeling like just another number. Just another client.
What we have that the big firms can’t come close to offering is that we make it personal.
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.

Don’t Handle Your 18 Wheeler Accident Claim on Your Own! You Need an Experienced Thibodaux Truck Accident Lawyer
Living in Thibodaux, it’s almost impossible to avoid the hundreds of big trucks and 18 wheelers that drive through each day. Unfortunately, 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.
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 very 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.
