    Houma Personal Injury Lawyers

    Putting Clients First in All We Do

    Some law firms are more concerned with prestige and paychecks than with clients. Injury attorney Joseph Kopfler, however, is different. We define success by helping the little guy. We get satisfaction out of helping an individual fight a large corporation or insurance company to achieve justice and vindication. The goal of our Houma personal injury lawyers is to ensure that our clients get full and fair compensation for their injuries and damages. For individualized attention from friendly, approachable lawyers, choose personal injury attorney Joseph Kopfler. We work closely with clients and their families, staying in touch even after the case is over. Our concern goes beyond legal matters.

    We want you to get the medical care you need, and can help you find doctors and specialists to treat your injuries. We want to make sure your family has the resources it needs to move forward, so we take the time to get to know you. If you or a loved one has been injured, you can rely on our commitment to you.

    A significant part of our practice is dedicated to injured maritime, offshore and oilfield workers. Our Houma personal injury attorneys represent workers injured in vessel and platform accidents, as well as injured longshoremen. Vehicle and auto accident injuries also make up a large number of our cases. We help people injured by drunken drivers, out-of-control 18-wheelers and negligent operators of any commercial company vehicle. The biggest problem confronting auto accident injury victims after they have been stabilized medically is what to do about their property damages. Our injury firm handles your property damage claim WITHOUT A FEE in most cases.

    Our Houma accident attorneys represent victims of medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect of elderly, group home abuse and neglect of developmentally disabled adults and sex offenses, injuries caused by dangerous or hazardous conditions on property, and cases where an insurance company has acted in bad faith in the handling of your claim. We hold negligent parties accountable for their actions, whether they let dangerous property conditions cause an injury or whether an insurance company fails to properly pay a valid claim in good faith and a timely manner.

    Hurricane Ida Claims in Houma

    In September of 2021, Hurricane Ida tore through Louisiana. In the wake of the storm, tens of thousands of property owners across southern Louisiana have filed insurance claims for home, vehicle, and boat damage caused by this uncommonly powerful storm. Unfortunately, supply chain shortages and other disruptions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic have made it exceptionally difficult for residents of impacted areas to get repairs completed and paid for, due to the extremely high demand for a limited supply of materials and services.

    In addition, many Houma residents looking to recover financially for the costs of Hurricane Ida are having substantial trouble getting the compensation they need from their insurance providers, even if they kept up to date with their premiums and fulfilled every obligation required by their policy. The formulas and algorithms that insurance companies use to calculate claim values are often slow to adjust to new circumstances. Unfortunately, this means that many claimants cannot get fair settlement offers that account for the unique challenges posed by this storm.


    If you are looking to make the most of your Hurricane Ida claim in Houma, representation from a legal professional with years of experience in the field of insurance negotiations can be vital. We can help you to protect your financial security and future best interests, working with you to pursue a fair claim for your losses. Call today to learn more about your options in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
