Our law firm has over 40 years of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death cases in Shreveport-Bossier City and North Louisiana, including a great deal of jury trial experience. Your case may not go to trial; most cases don’t. But when insurance companies know they are up against a law firm that goes to trial and wins, they are more likely to settle out of court for a fair amount, without playing games or trying to lowball a settlement. After handling thousands of cases like yours, we know how much your case is worth and how to work toward getting the full value of your claim.
From your first consultation with Rice & Kendig, you’ll meet with your attorney personally, and that’s who you’ll get to represent you. You won’t have to worry about having your case handed off to a junior associate with lesser experience or a non-attorney case manager. Our Shreveport injury lawyers are here for you whenever you need us.
