Whether caused by a blind spot, vehicular failure or just driver negligence, if you’ve been injured in a car accident, do not communicate with the insurance companies alone.

Drunk Driver

These accidents include injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents involving drivers who were impaired by alcohol or drug use. While the criminal court system can punish a drunk driver who caused the accident, it does nothing to compensate the victims of any trauma that the driver caused. Anderson Blanda & Saltzman have won multiple substantial damage awards for victims of accidents caused by intoxicated drivers throughout Louisiana. Read More

Punitive Damages

Louisiana law provides for two types of damages – compensatory and punitive. Punitive damages—or exemplary damages—are not designed to compensate, but rather punish the party responsible for the accident. In Louisiana, an individual who is injured as a result of an intoxicated driver’s actions is entitled to recover compensatory damages as well as punitive damages. Read more

Client Reviews
Finding yourself in the middle of a personal injury case is not a pleasant experience. I could not have been more blessed than to have Mr. Boyd Anderson represent me in that difficult time. He treated me and my family with respect and earned my complete trust. Mr. Anderson is an extremely skilled attorney and did an exceptional job with my case. His support staff, Tammy and Donna, are also amazing to work with. They are very thorough and took care of every detail, so that I could concentrate on healing. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Boyd Anderson to family and friends. Angie T.
Boyd Anderson, along with his associates and staff always keep you in the know. He is very personable, offers great advise and he saw my suit to the end personally. It’s very rare that an attorney personally responds back to emails and calls. Not to mention the accolades, experience and expertise is top notch and really impressive. I would definitely recommend this firm to anybody if they are serious about winning. This firm gets the job done and exceeds expectations. Shantele J.
With the plethora of advertisements one sees nowdays, it's difficult to discern just who is best qualified to represent you if you need legal assistance. An overabundance of tv commercials does not necessarily point one in the correct direction. When I needed help, I choose Boyd Anderson and his firm. Best decision I ever made. Superlative service throughout the legal process...and I very much appreciated the prompt attention to details I suspect other firms would have probably overlooked. Anderson's team and experience made a huge difference in my exceptional group of professionals...for sure. Paulette P.
