Dedicated Personal Injury Representation for Injured Drivers
Driving is just another fact of life for most of us. We routinely rely on our cars to get to work, to school, and to the grocery store. Unfortunately, many Louisiana drivers don’t take the responsibility of driving seriously and choose to act carelessly or recklessly behind the wheel. Drivers who speed or drive while intoxicated aren’t just jeopardizing their own lives – they’re needlessly putting the lives of others at risk. If you are an individual who has been injured in a car crash in the State of Louisiana because of another driver’s misconduct or negligence, you should contact an experienced car accidents attorney immediately.
I’ve just been in a car accident! What should I do?
The time immediately following an automobile accident is critical. It can also be very disorienting, especially if you or anybody else has been injured. There are a few important things to remember:
- Don’t admit fault, EVER
- Take care of any injuries
- Call the police. Even if no one was injured, it is necessary in many instances to have a police report when you file a personal injury claim. When the police arrive, get their badge number and name
- Document the scene. Get as much information as possible including pictures of the cars involved, names and contact information of any witnesses, information from the other driver(s) involved (name, insurance, license plate, drivers license), and any other information that might prove helpful (road conditions, information offered by other driver, etc)
- Call a personal injury lawyer immediately. Before you make a statement to any insurance company, especially the other drivers, make sure that you speak with a qualified car accident attorney
Contacting our office as soon as possible after a car crash gives you the best chance of eventually getting the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries. Damages awarded as a result of personal injury claims can be used to cover lost income and medical bills (including the cost of physical therapy and continuing care, if needed). Damages can also compensate for your pain and suffering, allowing you to concentrate on healing and recovery rather than financial stability.
