Visit Our New Louisiana Automobile Accident Injury Web Site

By Timothy Young on July 11, 2010

Last month we launched our new web site dedicated to helping individuals injured in Louisiana automobile and vehicle accidents.  You can visit the web site,, to learn more about your options and rights if you have been injured in a vehicle accident.

The site contains excellent information including technical articles if you have been injured by an 18-wheeler as well as simple, practical articles if you have been involved in an automobile accident in Louisiana.  The content has been created by our Louisiana injury attorneys who handle serious automobile accident cases.  Unfortunately our office does not accept small, soft tissue type cases.  We believe that these cases typically result in very little recovery for the injured party.  If you have a serious claim that you would like to discuss with our attorneys, please contact us immediately.

We hope that you enjoy our new web site focusing on Louisiana automobile and 18‑wheeler accidents.  It is another effort we are making to keep you informed of your options, rights and choices if you have been injured in Louisiana.
