When it comes to being injured in a car accident, choosing the right attorney can be the difference between getting $1,400,000 in 9 months instead of $150,000 after six years.
This was the unfortunate reality of one of our recent clients, Ms. Landry, a paralegal from Alexandria, Louisiana.
Six Years of Suffering and No Compensation
Ms. Landry was left with a severe neck injury after being hit by a dump truck in Alexandria. Being a paralegal, she felt obligated to hire the attorney that she worked for to represent her.
This attorney worked on all types of cases, including successions, divorces, and personal injury. With his toes dipped in multiple practice areas, he did not have the level of experience with car accident cases that Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers has.
Due to his lack of experience in cases as complex as Ms. Landry’s, this attorney drug his feet for six long years, leaving her to suffer.
She could not get the neck surgery she desperately needed.
She lost her job because she could no longer look at a computer screen.
She had piling bills and no idea when her life would turn back around.
After six years of misery, her highest offer was $150,000. This wasn’t nearly enough to pay for her medical bills, loss of quality of life and career, and future costs related to her injuries.

The Life-Changing Decision of Choosing Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers
After six years of pain, losing her career and getting no compensation for an accident that was no fault of her own, Ms. Landry turned to Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers for help. Digger Earles took on the case and immediately moved it forward.
First, Digger met with her doctor and got her the neck surgery she had been needing for years. Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers paid for the surgery and made sure she received what she needed to finally begin her journey to better health.
Next, Digger knew that the $150,000 was not nearly what his client needed. He fought tooth and nail with the insurance company to get a date for a trial with a jury. If the insurance company wasn’t going to give Ms. Landry the money she deserved, Digger knew that with his trial experience, a jury would.
This increased pressure led to the insurance company offering Ms. Landry $1,400,000, 800% more than their original offer.
They were finally willing to give her the compensation she deserved when faced with Digger Earles.
Between the $1,400,000 and the surgery she so badly needed, Ms. Landry finally saw the possibility of a brighter future for herself.
Even the defense attorney said, “It’s always better, from my standpoint, to deal with really good lawyers”. He saw what six years of dealing with her previous attorney was like for Ms. Landry.
I thank God for Digger & David. I don’t know what we would have done if it hadn’t have been for them.Rick Smith | Client
