Based in Bossier City, Louisiana, H. Lyn Lawrence, Jr. APLC assists injury victims and their families throughout the Shreveport and Northwest Louisiana area who have been harmed in car accidents, trucking accidents, accidents involving heavy machinery, oil and gas explosions, or who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or the loss of a family member in a wrongful death action.
Facing a personal injury is painful physically, emotionally, and financially. Injured victims may be unable to work temporarily or permanently and are likely facing high medical bills. At H. Lyn Lawrence, Jr. APLC, we accept all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only collect a fee if we successfully recover on your behalf. This allows you to focus on getting well, while we focus on ensuring that your expenses are taken care of.
Negotiating With Insurance Companies
In many personal injury cases, you will have to deal directly with an insurance company - either your own insurance carrier or that of the person who caused the accident - in order to obtain compensation for your medical bills and property damage. While you may think the insurance company is there to protect you, always remember that its goal is to pay out as little as possible, meaning that initial settlement offers are often far less than the amount to which you are entitled. With an experienced trial attorney on your side, the insurance company is far more likely to offer a fair settlement, or risk facing you and your attorney in court.
Louisiana law allows injury victims to recover for a range of damages, including such medical expenses as medication, rehabilitation, and future care expenses, as well as lost wages, future lost wages, lost earning capacity, and any incidental costs incurred because of the injury. You may also recover for the pain and suffering you have had to endure and any pain and suffering you are likely to experience in the future.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to the fault of another, seek experienced legal counsel as soon as possible, as Louisiana law only allows you one year to file a lawsuit for personal injury or wrongful death.
