When a personal injury is truly life-changing, many people are forced to take action—just to protect their families and their futures. At the Law Offices of Andrew R. Schwing in New Orleans, we understand that a personal injury lawsuit is never anyone’s first choice. It’s what families are forced to do when the negligent or reckless actions of another take away their health.
We take forceful action in Louisiana courts to protect our clients’ interests and get them the full and fair compensation they need to move forward after a catastrophic injury. Our work doesn’t just protect your future. It sends a stern message, holding the responsible party accountable.

There is a great deal at stake in catastrophic injury lawsuits. Because of the high financial stakes and the effect these personal injury cases have on everyone involved, the law firm you choose should have a solid strategy in place for winning your case.
This strategy should start with thorough and complete preparation for trial—not just preparation for settlement. Your lawyer should collect all evidence, including evidence available at the scene, police reports, medical records, witness testimony and insights from experts. At the Law Offices of Andrew R. Schwing, this is exactly what we do. We prepare your case for a winning verdict from the moment you retain us.
You can help inform your lawyer’s strategy. Start by keeping thorough records of everything you experience. If you are caring for a family member who has experienced a catastrophic injury, for example, it might be a good idea to keep a journal of all your activities. What appointments do you attend? What activities do you do on a daily basis? What challenges do you experience?
Keep all medical bills and letters from doctors, care providers and insurance companies—even if they look unimportant. And share everything you know with your lawyer, even the things you think might hurt your case. That way, your lawyer will be well prepared to give you the best possible representation in your catastrophic injury lawsuit.
