St. Charles Parish Car Accident Lawyer to Guide You
Between Highway 90, River Road, I-310, and Airline Highway, unfortunately, many residents of St. Charles Parish find themselves the victim of a car accident at some point in their lives. Many of these accidents are minor, however, some can have lasting effects and a few are tragically fatal.
After a car accident in St. Charles Parish, there are many issues that need to be handled immediately.
Dealing with doctors, repair shops, car rental companies, police, and insurance companies is overwhelming, especially when someone is seriously injured.
Most St. Charles Parish residents are hard-working, have never needed to hire a lawyer, and never thought they'd ever sue anyone.
However, the insurance company will usually do anything to avoid paying you the full amount that you deserve for your insurance claims after a car crash.
Or they want to settle quickly, before you know if you will need surgery or continued treatment.
Many times people realize that they may need an auto accident attorney to handle all of the paperwork for their car accident case and to make sure that they receive enough money from the other party’s insurer to cover their extensive medical bills and lost wages.
They don't want to sue, but are worried about paying their bills and taking care of their families.
The insurance company has a legal team, why don't you?

Common Myths About Personal Injury
Injury victims find well-meaning advice from relatives, friends, or co-workers plentiful in the days following their injury.
The advice can range from how to handle a claim without a personal injury lawyer, to which attorney they should hire.
When you are injured in a car crash, it seems everyone has their own perspective on what you should do!
Having represented injured and disabled individuals for a number of years now, I have heard some crazy stories about “advice” given to my clients by their friends and family.
Here are some of the top myths:
- My friend had this type of injury. He received $X. I expect to get the same amount.
- My friend received a good offer from the insurance company without an attorney, so I don’t think I need one.
- The defendant is at fault and has enough insurance to pay for all of my damages.
- You have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company.
- You have to sign medical, employment, and other releases to get a settlement offer from the insurance company.
- The insurance company will pay your medical bills and lost earnings as you incur them.
- All attorneys and law firms charge the same fee in personal injury cases.
- I am severely injured, so this case is a slam dunk and we will both get rich!
- The settlement or judgment value in a personal injury case can be determined by a set formula for a given type of injury.
Contrary to common belief, none of the above is remotely true.

Personal injury attorney Loyd J Bourgeois grew up in Bayou Gauche. He and his wife are both graduates of Hahnville High School and live in Luling with their 3 children.
Loyd wanted to serve the residents of St. Charles Parish so he opened his Luling law office right at the base of the Hale Boggs (aka "Luling-Destrehan") bridge on River Road. After the devastation of Hurricane Ida, his offices moved right off of Highway 90 on Wade Street. This location is convenient for everyone in St. Charles Parish, including Boutte, Destrehan, Des Allemands, Ama, St. Rose, Norco, and Montz!
At our firm, we welcome you in as part of the family and fight for you like one of our own.
