Insurance/Medical Claims​



Insurance is a necessity. We all have it and we all need it. We rely on our insurance policies to cover us every day for health, life, disability, property, casualty, etc.


However, it seems that all too often our insurance policies are never there when we need them. Families often spend an entire lifetime faithfully paying their premiums month after month, hoping to never need to use their insurance policy. However, if that unfortunate day comes and the insurance is needed, the last thing anyone wants to think about at that time is “What do we do if the insurance company denies our claim?” Far too many people simply throw their hands up and surrender. They assume that the insurance company’s word is the final word. Nothing could be further from the truth.


Louisiana law provides very strong remedies to individuals and families whose claims have been wrongfully denied. Specifically, LSA R.S. 22:1821 is a statute that requires insurance companies doing business in Louisiana to pay claims within 30 days from the date of demand or risk stiff penalties and possible attorney fees.


We know that taking on an insurance company can seem like the modern-day David versus Goliath story and many ways it is true. Insurance companies assume that their sheer size and power will intimidate anyone from questioning their decisions. At Sudduth & Associates, L.L.C., we like to say that we represent the underdog. We represent workers, employees, the injured, and families. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers to represent their interests, but who is left to fight for the individual? We are proud to be that firm. So, if an insurance company denies your claim – call us today to see if you have a case. We would be proud to stand with you and fight to hold the powerful accountable and to secure the benefits to which you are entitled.


We are prepared to provide you with quality legal representation in a compassionate and caring environment, where privacy and confidentiality are paramount.
