Too much is at stake to guess about the best approach and strategy for fighting your denied insurance claim — years and years of financial security.
After spending years representing insurance companies, we don’t guess. We know their playbook and how they work behind the scenes. Using that knowledge, we’ve developed our own Clear Advantage Process for fighting claims.
It’s personally satisfying to use what I’ve learned as an insurance company insider, now for the good — helping families reverse unfair denials of insurance benefits they paid for, need and deserve.
Price McNamara began his law practice in 1990 representing insurance companies.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara founded McNamara Law Offices, where he represents people across the U.S. who are wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance, life insurance, and accidental death insurance benefits, with special focus on ERISA claims and lawsuits.
His is a member of the Louisiana and Texas Bars, with office locations by appointment only in Baton Rouge, Metairie, and Houston. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with his wife and their three children.
“Price showed no fear. The only thing I can use to actively describe what I saw that day in court was someone standing there protecting our family and fighting for them at the same time…he took control of the situation and was truthful.”
“It was a smooth process. I didn’t have to guess about what was going to happen next…I was reassured that he was going to do the right thing. I was reassured that he was looking out for me.”
“He was ready to fight for me…I felt like he had my best interest in mind. It wasn’t just for the paycheck at the end.”
“Price worked for an insurance company in the past and now he’s working against the insurance company so it was because of that we trusted that he knew how an insurance company worked and how to fight them.”
“I feel blessed that I can help turn things around for my clients who have been denied that piece of mind of financial stability and we make sure that the insurance company and the court realize that these are actual people, these are families that are suffering greatly.”

My client’s cause for an ERISA accidental death and dismemberment denial lawsuit began when both Esther and her husband were involved in a tragic head-on collision with an 18-wheeler. This tragic accident resulted in severe injuries to Esther, as well as David’s untimely death.
Our client, a young husband with two children, sustained closed-head brain injury as a result of an automobile accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay, but shortly before trial, agreed to pay the entirety of its insurance policy limits of $2,000,000.
Our client was a floor hand and Jones Act seaman who suffered a shoulder injury while working for Blake Offshore, LLC. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. Blake and its insurance company offered relatively little in settlement, so the case proceeded to trial.
Our client sustained a fractured hip and reduced ability to earn wages in the future as a result of an accident sustained on the offshore drilling rig to which he was assigned. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans.

If you slipped on something or fell because of someone else’s negligence, you may have a slip and fall claim. An Opelousas personal injury lawyer can help you assert a claim for personal injuries under the theory of premise liability if the property owner:
Pursuant to Louisiana law, a dog owner is liable if you sustained injuries from a dog’s conduct, such as a bite or a mauling, so long as you did not provoke the dog. It does not matter where the incident occurred.
You could have a medical malpractice claim if you were injured from a medical professional’s incompetence or unreasonable medical care. There are three ways you could have a medical malpractice claim:
Many personal injury cases are stressful, but wrongful death and severe personal injury claims are the most destructive and traumatic.
In Louisiana, a wrongful death action can provide financial compensation whereas criminal prosecution won’t. If someone’s gross negligence caused the death of your loved one, an Opelousas personal injury lawyer can help you sue that person for wrongful death.
Most personal injury claims involve bruising, lacerations, sprains or even broken bones. However, severe personal injury cases are significantly more serious. The injuries are debilitating and often permanent. Injuries may include traumatic brain injury, loss of a limb, severe spinal injury, or burn injuries.
The above personal injury cases are not an exclusive list. Several theories of liability may be combined against more than one party when you file a personal injury case. As a knowledgeable and experienced Opelousas personal injury lawyer, J. Price McNamara can educate you on your rights. He can also help you navigate the complex personal injury theories, as well as compile evidence in support of your claim. This includes retaining the appropriate medical expert to explain the complex medical terms, prove the extent of your injuries and your prognosis, and link your injuries to the accident.
When you are in an accident, often times you deal with an insurance company—your own or the other party’s insurance company—when you are seeking compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies, as private, for-profit entities—are both well equipped and staffed to handle personal injury claims on a daily basis. Their objective is to offer quick, often low-ball settlements where you waive your rights to sue, hoping you do not understand your rights. With an Opelousas personal injury lawyer fighting at your side, you increase your deserved compensation, which may include not only your current medical expenses but also:
If you suffered injuries due to an accident, contact seasoned Opelousas personal injury lawyer J. Price McNamara as soon as possible. You have one year from the date of your injury to file suit or you lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
