Considering filing a New Iberia LA personal injury lawsuit? Contact us

The knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Wattigny Law Firm understand the importance of having the right lawyer on your side if you’ve been injured in a serious personal injury accident in New Iberia, Lafayette or anywhere in Louisiana. That’s why we work so hard on every case we handle. We are down-to-earth, hard-working people who believe that each personal injury victim deserves respect and compassion—and we tackle every case aggressively and tirelessly.

We are an intentionally small firm founded by an honest, no-nonsense man who believes in doing what’s right. A Louisiana native, James Wattigny put himself through law school by working offshore on various rigs and vessels, and part of what inspired him to focus on personal injury law was the injustices to injured workers that he witnessed during those years. He has seen the dangerous jobs so many Louisianans do every day, on and off shore, and knows how devastating injuries and related financial hardship can be on entire families.

As a small firm, we have the opportunity to give each of our clients the one-on-one attention that they deserve. We know that no two cases are the same. No two clients are the same, either. We believe that it’s our responsibility to get to know you so we can better build your case. We’ll interview witnesses and examine police and medical records if we have to. We’ll also visit the site of the accident with an accident reconstruction team. What might seem like a trivial detail could be a crucial piece of evidence in your trial. No matter what type of injury you have or challenge you face, let us fight for your rights and the compensation you have coming to you.

Serious accidents can turn your life upside-down. An accident can hurt you financially, emotionally and physically. If you or a loved one was injured, or you lost a loved one in an accident due to someone’s reckless behavior, you will need an attorney with years of experience handling all types of complicated personal injury cases.
