Louisiana Car Accident Lawyer
Every day motor vehicle accidents cause serious personal injuries. Auto accident victims may suffer a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, burn injury, and even death.
A variety of factors may contribute to a serious car accident. Common auto accident causes include driver distraction (talking on the cell phone, fiddling with the radio or other devices, talking with passengers, dealing with children or pets, eating or grooming in the car, attempting to retrieve dropped items, etc.), driver impairment (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, sleepiness, illness, etc.), dangerous road conditions, dangerous products, and negligent driving.
Serious car and other motor vehicle accidents require the guidance of an experienced attorney. We have years of practice and an impressive track record representing people who have suffered significant injuries in motor vehicle accidents (commercial and personal). We work with physicians and other health care providers to assess and review all the short and long-term medical aspects of your case. Our detailed understanding of Louisiana's automobile, insurance, and liability laws means we understand the different sources of recovery available to car accident victims and their families as well as the various theories of liability that enable those victims to collect from the parties who caused them harm.
If you are involved in an accident, get the names of witnesses and write them down with contact information.
Get medical attention as soon as possible after the accident. If possible, take pictures of your vehicle and the other vehicle involved. Take pictures of the location where the accident took place. Claims investigators from the other driver's insurance company or representatives of your own insurance company may contact you. Other than reporting your claim to your insurance company, you should not give them statements about the accident. First, contact our firm.
