WE CAN HELP YOU NAVIGATE THE LOUISIANA LEGAL SYSTEM
We have experience and success in a variety of cases, including the following:
- A woman suffered a shoulder injury in a car accident that was not her fault. The other driver’s insurance, however, wouldn’t acknowledge the seriousness of the injury and did not offer adequate compensation. The woman hired our firm, and after sending her to the doctor once more, who determined she needed surgery, the insurance company ultimately paid nearly $100,000 for the injury.
- A worker sustained a back injury on a boat, but the employer refused to acknowledge it. The worker hired us, and we proved that the boat was not seaworthy, leading to the injury. The employer ultimately paid a settlement of $275,000.
Chris J. Roy, Jr., a third-generation attorney, was taught that a competent lawyer possesses the ability to change people’s lives for the better.

CASES SEEN BY OUR LOUISIANA PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
There are several usable legal definitions for the term personal injury, but it generally refers to a physical or emotional injury that is caused through the negligence, conduct, misconduct or lack of action of a person or entity.
Examples can include the employee who forgot to put the “Wet Floor” sign up after mopping, causing a customer to fall; the store that employed him can also be held liable. Another example could be the designers of a vehicle that did not perform up to standards, causing a vehicle accident, or the trucking company that did not complete proper maintenance on a big-rig involved in a collision.
Louisiana personal injury cases can be taken to court and the person or entity responsible sued for compensation for the injury. There are as many types of injuries as there are accidents.
WHY CHOOSE US?
Our firm provides personalized attention to each client. You hire an injury lawyer in Louisiana who is personally involved in your case, not a lawyer who lives out of state or out of the city whom you never get to meet or visit with. Chris has been a practicing attorney for 27 years. He takes a personal interest in each case, and makes it a habit to return all calls and to keep our clients updated about their cases.
Chris’s father and my grandfather were Louisiana attorneys and he learned their values and skills as a boy growing up. They set a stellar example for him in the legal field, and he is committed to offering the same high quality service that they did.
Being a lawyer has been passed down from generation to generation in his family, and in some ways it is more of a calling than a career. Because of the exemplary legal work done by his father and grandfather, Chris has set a high bar for himself when it comes to serving clients. The Roy name depends on it.
We realize that when there has been a serious injury to you, there are a lot of unanswered questions. Our firm provides hands on service to you to answer all questions and help deal with all problems whether from a medical standpoint or a financial standpoint.

DEADLINES FOR PERSONAL INJURY CASES IN LOUISIANA
The state of Louisiana sets a “statute of limitations,” or deadline, on the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit in court after an injury. In Louisiana, this deadline falls one year after the date of the accident in most cases. What’s important to remember is that you can lose your right to file a personal injury lawsuit if you miss the one-year window, so make sure you keep this rule in mind.
We are on your side at a time when you feel like no one else is.
HISTORY OF LAWS IN LOUISIANA
Being local means understanding the state you serve. Chris is deeply familiar with personal injury issues in Louisiana and has studied a great deal of case law related to it. One size does not fit all, and that’s why out-of-state large firms handling Louisiana cases miss a lot of the nuances and history of Louisiana law.
ORIGIN OF LOUISIANA LAWS
Laws in the state of Louisiana grew out of a more diverse set of sources than the laws of any other 49 states in the country. Private law — that is, substantive law between private sector parties, principally contracts and torts—has a civil law character that arose out of French and Spanish codes and ultimately Roman law.
Louisiana’s criminal law largely derives its influences from American common law. Louisiana’s administrative law fits hand-in-hand with administrative law of the U.S. federal government and all other states. Similarly, Louisiana’s procedural law flows closely with that of other U.S. states, which are compatible with U.S. Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
INFLUENCES ON LOUISIANA LAWS
Original influences on what would become Louisiana law date as far back as 1664 when the royal charter creating the French East India Company was signed, hence the significant influence of French laws on Louisiana’s earliest legal sentiments. It was later, in the 1700s, that the influence of Spanish law emerged more fully, adding a texture to future Louisiana law that more closely mirrored that culture.
Chris is a student of all things Louisiana…
…literally, given his education at LSU.
He enjoys digging deep into the origins and nuances of Louisiana law. Do you think attorneys who are natives of St. Louis or Chicago or Los Angeles can possibly understand the Louisiana laws that affect you in the same way Chris can? Those attorneys are not as heavily invested in Louisiana. They are not attorneys whose family has practiced law in the state for three generations. Chris genuinely cares about local Louisiana residents who are victims in personal injury cases.
