Some of the types of accidents we have successfully represented Lake Charles clients in include: 

We know that every personal injury case is unique. Our attorneys take the time to get to know our clients on a personal level, and pay close personal attention to each case. You can talk to our experienced attorneys directly, who will evaluate your situation thoroughly before deciding the next course of action. 

Our job is to simplify your legal claim process and help you get full and fair compensation as quickly as possible. While our attorneys try to resolve cases through negotiation, we are ready to take your case to trial if the insurance company is trying to force you to settle for less. 

From the very beginning, only an experienced accident attorney will handle your case, making note of the smallest details and advising you of the best legal choices available. We will leave no stone unturned in helping you get your life back on track.

A personal injury attorney in Lake Charles can help get you back on your feet after an accident.

If you were injured at work, you need someone who will stand in your corner and fight for you.


Some cases involve multiple claims against multiple parties. The Johnson Firm works to investigate any negligence involved in causing your injury before making claims against every person or company who contributed to an injury. This legal strategy increases the chances that you will have a successful injury claim that compensates you for all of your injuries.

Many of the cases we pursue, especially in the Lake Charles area, are against:

  • At-fault drivers who caused your motor vehicle accident
  • Employers of truck drivers who caused your accident
  • Negligent companies that allowed conditions for an accident to develop[KL11] 
  • Manufacturers of defective products, including refinery safety systems
  • Property owners who allow hazards to injure visitors
  • Care provider agencies (malpractice claims)
  • Owners of dangerous dogs
  • Contractors that negligently put subcontractors and other contractors in danger


“Damages” refers to the harms and losses you experienced as a result of someone else’s negligence, or their deliberate wrongful acts.

Common damages claimed in a personal injury case include:

  • Medical bills – past and future
  • Out-of-pocket costs
  • Personal property replacement
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Replacement domestic services
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Funeral and burial costs (wrongful death)

There are also harms and losses that are not strictly financial. Nonetheless, victims deserve compensation for these damages. They include:

  • Pain, suffering, and emotional hardship
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disability, scarring, or disfigurement
  • Mental suffering
  • Humiliation
  • Embarrassment
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of comfort of a close family member

We refuse to back down from insurance companies and big corporations that want to deny your claim or stick you with an unreasonable offer. We believe people in Lake Charles deserve compensation for all of the harms and losses they suffer, and our personal injury lawyers fight for that every day.


In addition to decades of combined legal experience, there are several beneficial services a legal team can provide for your case. 

First, we help you investigate your claim so that you can document 100% of your damages in full and identify everyone who may be at fault. We then determine how each party was negligent, and how that negligence directly led to your accident and your subsequent losses.

The Johnson Firm has experience arguing cases in front of jurors, so we build each case as though it will go to trial. In fact, many of our most positive outcomes have resulted from jury verdicts. We are not afraid to take liable parties to court to ensure that you can recover from the consequences of someone not following the rules of the road, basic safety procedures, or using the kind of care we expect of the average person.


It is your right to seek compensation for a personal injury resulting from negligence, an accident, or an intentional wrongful act. In fact, it is the wrongdoer’s responsibility to compensate you for your injuries.  A successful claim can get you compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, physical and emotional pain and suffering, disfigurement, rehabilitation, and more.

Many people refer to these incidents as “accidents,” but they are not always really “accidents.” These incidents are caused by someone not following basic safety procedures or using the kind of normal care we expect of others going about their daily lives.

As a trusted personal injury law firm, it is our responsibility to make sure you get the right amount of compensation. However, we don’t want to further compromise your financial situation after a traumatic injury. That’s why we operate on a contingency basis. This means we don’t charge you unless you successfully recover compensation. Our motto is simple: We don’t get paid until you do.


The Johnson Firm’s personal injury attorneys in Lake Charles are ready and waiting to take your case. Call us today to schedule your free, no-obligation consultation and learn more about your legal rights and options. Call 3337-433-1414 or contact us online to schedule your free case review now.
