Suffering a serious personal injury is a traumatic experience. The life of the injured individual — and the lives of his or her family — is turned upside-down in an instant, which leads to worry and uncertainty about the future. At DeJean & Leger, LLC, our experienced attorneys are here to remove that worry and reduce the stress a serious injury has added to your life.
DeJean & Leger, LLC: Louisiana Personal Injury Attorneys
We have more than 55 years of combined personal injury experience serving the greater-Opelousas community. We are passionate about helping local clients get the compensation they need to replace lost wages and pay both current and future medical expenses. We take the time to get to know our clients to truly understand their concerns and goals. We then prepare a personalized case strategy to obtain the best outcome possible.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Hundreds of car, truck and motorcycle drivers are involved in a crash every week in Louisiana. Unfortunately, many of these car accidents could have been prevented if the negligent driver followed the rules of the road. For example, many accidents are caused by drunk driving or being under the influence of drugs, driving on too little sleep or texting while behind the wheel.
Our firm works quickly and efficiently to hold negligent drivers accountable for the injuries they cause. We are experienced negotiators and aggressive litigators who always keep clients up to date on the status of their case.
We work hard to make sure the other driver’s insurance company gives you everything to which you are entitled. We realize that not everyone has car insurance, however, and that policy limits might not cover the full cost of your injuries. We are well-versed in dealing with matters of underinsured or uninsured motorists, so please know that compensation is available in nearly all cases.
Other Personal Injury Services
While prevalent, motor vehicle accidents are not the only cause of personal injury litigation. Our firm serves anyone who was injured by another party’s negligence, including cases involving:
- Slip and falls and other premises liability claims
- Defective products
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage
- Medical malpractice
- Offshore and maritime injuries
- Injuries to children, including animal attacks or dog bites
We also help clients who suffered an injury while at work or performing duties associated with their job. We will carefully review your potential workers’ compensation claim and examine whether additional compensation is available via a third-party lawsuit.
