If you live in Kenner, LA, you are all too familiar with drivers flying down W. Esplanade, weaving in and out of traffic on I-10, and basically not paying any attention while they talk on their cell phones. No wonder car accidents are a daily occurrence in Kenner.
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 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.
If you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury in Kenner because of someone else’s negligence or distracted driving, you may have a good personal injury claim.
How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer in Kenner Help You?
Regardless of what type of accident you were in, a Louisiana personal injury attorney will help you obtain a fair settlement that covers all your damages.
Like most hard-working Kenner residents, you probably aren’t the type to sue and usually 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 severe personal injury.
There is no shame in ensuring your medical bills are paid, your property is replaced, and your lost wages are covered. You have been injured and there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to be made whole again.
Hiring a personal injury lawyer will prevent you from making some 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 can 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 complete 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 your losses.
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
That TV Lawyer Isn’t Always Your Best Option
You may be tempted to call an attorney you saw on TV – you know the ones we’re talking about. The ones with the catchy jingles and theatrical productions. And you’re not the only one.
But are they any good? Or do they seem that way because they spend so much on commercials? With so much exposure their client base is huge and you may run the risk of being treated like just another client. Just another case.
What we have that the big firms can't 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.

Don’t Handle Your 18-Wheeler Accident Claim on Your Own! You Need an Experienced Kenner Truck Accident Lawyer
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.
Living in Kenner, it is nearly impossible to avoid I-10 and the thousands of work trucks and 18-wheelers that drive through each day. 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 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.
