Automotive Casualty and Auto Insurance Defense

Many national insurance clients rely on our firm to provide regional knowledge in automotive casualty and auto insurance defense cases. Louisiana is a “direct action” state where an insurer can be sued directly in most third-party liability claims. As a result, insurers usually have increased exposure, and other issues arise that do not commonly occur in other jurisdictions which can complicate insurance defense. Our experienced team is adept at navigating by litigating in a “direct action” jurisdiction. Our attorneys can quickly assess your case, handle it effectively and efficiently, and zealously defend your interests.

 

Property Damage Insurance

We have years of experience representing clients in the maritime industry, which has given our team a thorough understanding of the legal issues pertaining to admiralty cases.  When accidents, claims and disputes arise during maritime ventures, our lawyers can efficiently defend your business.

Professional Liability

Because of their specialized knowledge, professionals, such as insurance agents, brokers, financial consultants, architects, engineers, home inspectors, accountants, doctors and lawyers, among other types of professionals, have a special relationship with their clients. This special relationship usually imposes upon the professional a stringent standard of care, and often fiduciary obligations. Specialized laws will usually govern the professional’s conduct. We have successfully defended numerous professionals, of many types, and we have the experience, knowledge and skill required to minimize the substantial risk professionals are exposed to.

Construction Litigation

Disputes involving construction projects can be complex and costly since they often involve multiple parties and several conflicting interests. When defending homeowners, builders, insurers, and contractors, our attorneys utilize extensive knowledge and resources to efficiently resolve or litigate these complicated legal matters.

 

Premises Liability

Property owners, whether individual homeowners, shopping center owners, or small business owners and merchants, are faced with a dizzying array of risks that may lead to bodily injury or property damage to those who come upon their property. Physical defects or conditions in or on the property can lead to accidents, as can negligent operations or failing to conform to codes and standards, or safe business practices. Even criminal activity of others that occur on or near the property may create exposure. We have defended all types of premises liability cases – whether it is a claim against a homeowner, or claim against the owner or property manager of a shopping center; or a claim against a restaurant, bar or other type of merchant; a claim against an apartment complex or condominium association; a claim against a nursing home, school or church. We have the knowledge, experience and resources required to fiercely protect the investment in your property.

 

Product Liability
