Drunk Driver

Motor vehicle accidents caused by drunk or impaired drivers are all too common in Louisiana. If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of the fault of an intoxicated driver, you may be able to recover punitive damages. You need an experienced attorney, and we have a thorough understanding of the law and successfully handled many drunk driver cases.

Some common injuries suffered in drunk driver cases include:
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts / lacerations
  • Head trauma
  • Concussion/brain injury
  • Spine injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Internal organ injuries

Although the consumption of alcohol is the most common form of intoxication, the law also imposes punitive damages on those who are impaired as a result of using illegal drugs or the abuse of prescription medications. When handling impaired driver cases, our attorneys often retain an expert (usually a toxicologist) to assess the positive test results of the impaired driver and give their opinion on the effect of the intoxicating substance on the driver’s ability to operate a vehicle safely. This helps us build the strongest case possible in pursuit of recovering damages for you.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Finding yourself in the middle of a personal injury case is not a pleasant experience. I could not have been more blessed than to have Mr. Boyd Anderson represent me in that difficult time. He treated me and my family with respect and earned my complete trust. Mr. Anderson is an extremely skilled attorney and did an exceptional job with my case. His support staff, Tammy and Donna, are also amazing to work with. They are very thorough and took care of every detail, so that I could concentrate on healing. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Boyd Anderson to family and friends. Angie T.

Boyd Anderson, along with his associates and staff always keep you in the know. He is very personable, offers great advise and he saw my suit to the end personally. It’s very rare that an attorney personally responds back to emails and calls. Not to mention the accolades, experience and expertise is top notch and really impressive. I would definitely recommend this firm to anybody if they are serious about winning. This firm gets the job done and exceeds expectations. Shantele J.

With the plethora of advertisements one sees nowdays, it's difficult to discern just who is best qualified to represent you if you need legal assistance. An overabundance of tv commercials does not necessarily point one in the correct direction. When I needed help, I choose Boyd Anderson and his firm. Best decision I ever made. Superlative service throughout the legal process...and I very much appreciated the prompt attention to details I suspect other firms would have probably overlooked. Anderson's team and experience made a huge difference in my life...an exceptional group of professionals...for sure. Paulette P.
