Accident Lawyers Who Care About Your Rights

If you have been injured, you’re about to discover how hard insurance companies work to protect themselves as well as what a difference trial experience makes. Despite what their television ads may say, you won’t feel like you’re in the hands of a good neighbor when it comes time for your company to pay up. Christopher Trahan, Attorney at Law has been standing up to the nation’s largest insurance giants for more than 20 years.

Our maritime and personal injury lawyers in Lafayette, LA, have advocated on behalf of people injured in maritime accidents, motor vehicle wrecks, nursing homes, and other accidents involving negligence or wrongdoing. We handle all personal injury cases on contingency: No recovery, no attorney fees. It’s that simple.

You are in a tough battle to protect your rights. Make no mistake: Trial experience makes a decisive difference in getting the full and fair compensation you deserve. We work directly with clients; when you call our office, you get to speak to an attorney. Our accident lawyers know how to combat the tactics insurance adjusters and insurance defense lawyers use. They try to minimize your injuries. They expect you to take their low settlement offer and go away.

We fight to get you a fair settlement or take your case to court. That’s why we prepare every case for trial from the first day. When the insurance company sees how serious we are about getting you every bit of the compensation you may be entitled to, they come prepared to negotiate fairly.
