If you have been in an accident, you should consider getting medical help for your personal injuries right away, even if your personal injuries appear minor. Damage to your head, back or neck may not be apparent right away, and delays could impact your health.

How Will Help Me?

Before filing an insurance claim or negotiating with the insurance company, the team will gather evidence regarding the accident. This may include:

  • Reviewing medical records from treatment you received after the crash
  • Reviewing police reports, crime scene reports and photographs of the scene
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Using traffic camera footage, if available
  • Investigating the history of the other driver
  • Obtaining a recording of the 911 call
  • Examining photos of your car before and after the accident
  • Reviewing cell phone records
  • Reviewing specific information and history on the vehicles involved

If we accept your case, the team will use this information to demonstrate that other driver was at-fault for the accident, and is therefore responsible for your losses. Insurance companies will want to limit their payout and, in many cases, will offer an amount that does not adequately cover your losses. is not a “Settlement Mill.” We will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, seeking the maximum allowed under the law. If negotiations are unsuccessful, the team will determine whether you may be able to collect the maximum compensation by filing a lawsuit against the insurance company and other parties involved in the crash.

It is not a simple process, unless you just want a ‘quick check’ for less than full value for your case. In those cases, minimal lawyer work is required, and many times, the client’s case is not fully examined. These types of cases are most commonly associated with high-volume “Settlement Mill”  attorneys. At we are not a settlement mill.  We want to perform the best legal work for you possible. We would like to help you if you are in a Baton Rouge car accident, or almost anywhere in Louisiana.

Louisiana’s “No-Pay, No-Play” Law

Being the victim of a car accident can require hospitalization, surgery, and post-surgery rehab. A crash can make you miss time from work or damage your car beyond repair. When situations like these occur, you deserve an experienced attorney who can represent your interests fairly.

Louisiana Law Requires vehicle owners to purchase protection which, in the event of a crash, will cover the cost of damages to another to a certain extent. This is called the Louisiana “No-Pay, No-Play” Law.

The “No-Pay, No Play” law bars uninsured and underinsured drivers from collecting the first $15,000 of bodily injury damages and the first $25,000 of property damages. This means that even if the other driver is at fault, an uninsured driver will have to cover medical costs up to $15,000, and car repairs up to $25,000.

However, there are exceptions.
