Lake Charles Personal Injury Lawyers
You Pay Nothing Unless We Win Your Case
Sustaining an injury in an accident that was no fault of your own can be an immensely painful and stressful ordeal. The financial cost of an injury can add up quickly—not only are there medical bills to pay, but you may also end up missing work while you recover, causing you to lose valuable income.

Why Hire a Lawyer?
Following any accident that causes injury, the at-fault party’s insurance company is tasked with paying out the victim. However, the insurer has a vested interest in paying you as little as possible. This is where a personal injury attorney comes in. We will act as your liaison in all dealings with insurers, making certain they do not engage in unnecessary delay or denial, and that they offer you a fair amount to settle your claim. Effective representation requires real trial lawyers, not “litigators” who settle quickly to avoid the courtroom at any cost.
At Sudduth & Associates, LLC, we employ state-of-the-art technology to develop and present the best case for your recovery and are always open to considering an out of court settlement if it meets your needs. However, we always prepare for trial to ensure we have the strongest case possible.
We believe that the most effective attorney-client relationship is built on trust and communication. We will always be proactive about keeping you up to date on any developments in your case so that you know where you stand. We will carefully explain the law and the legal process and the vital part you will play as well as your options and chances of success so that you can make educated decisions.
