After an accident, it is recommended that you consult with a Personal Injury Attorney.  Many people think that lawyers are needed only if you intend to go to court, but that is not the case. If you are injured in Louisiana during a maritime, transportation, or premises liability accident you will need the experience of a Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyer to help you navigate your insurance claim, medical recovery and more.

 

Hiring a lawyer does not mean you will be going to court for your personal injury case. The insurance company knows that it is in their best interest to settle with you outside of court. If their client is found responsible for your accident and injuries, they could also be held responsible for court costs as well.

 

Our Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyer knows this and has over 25 years of experience working toward the best possible settlement outcome for our clients at Cueria Law Firm, LLC. You can request a free consultation on your accident or injury claim by calling our office at (504) 525-5211.

 

What is the process of hiring a Louisiana Personal Injury Attorney?

 

Step 1: Consult

When you meet with our lawyer, he will go over the facts of your case with you. He needs to know every detail relating to your accident during the consultation, as well as your insurance coverage, any medical treatment that you have received, and any injuries that you have suffered. Please do not worry about discussing these details with the lawyer, it is in your best interest for him to know everything. It is the Personal Injury Lawyer’s responsibility to argue on your behalf, and he can best fight for you if he has all of the information.

 

Do I have to pay the Attorney upfront?

No. If our lawyer believes he can successfully settle your case, he will ask you to sign a retainer. This is a document that outlines the agreement for representing you for your accident. Cueria Law Firm, LLC only collects payment once the settlement or jury verdict has been reached, and it will come directly from the insurance company’s payment to you. You don’t pay anything upfront! So do not let fears of payment keep you from having the representation that you deserve.

 

Mistake to avoid: It is the job of the insurance adjuster to get a claimant to settle for as little money as possible. Because of this, an initial offer or check may be made in the days following your accident. Due to the variety of accidents and injuries you can sustain in Louisiana, it is important to have an experienced attorney review your case before accepting any money. If you accept a settlement payment before your medical treatment is completed, you could forfeit additional reimbursement and be faced with paying for your treatment out of pocket.

 

Step 2: Medical Treatment

The next step is making sure that your medical treatment is scheduled to maximize your recovery, as well as ensure the best possible outcome for your case. Because of his experience, our Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyer has relationships with some of the top medical providers in the area, including pain management, physical therapy, MRI and imaging services, neurologists and orthopedists. We guarantee the payment for your medical treatment out of your settlement, which means no upfront cost to worry about when you see these top medical providers while you recover. Your main focus during this time is to heal and get better, let the team at Cueria Law Firm worry about the rest.

 

While you receive medical care and have your injuries treated, our team at Cueria Law Firm will begin our investigation and compiling the evidence for your claim. This will include collecting police reports, witness statements, video and photo evidence of your accident and more. We’ll also establish a claim with all involved insurance companies and third parties.

The Cueria Law Firm Team will also collect any bills that you have received which are related to your accident. This includes emergency services such as ambulance rides, hospital visits or others. This is all to satisfy the right of these providers to subrogate or recover payments, from the insurance company or third-party responsible for your accident.

 

Step 3: Settle Your Claim

Once our Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyer has reviewed your medical treatments (usually approximately 3-5 months into your claim) and the costs associated with your accident, he will write a demand to the insurance company to settle your claim. This is often just the first step to getting to an agreement. The insurance company will counter with an offer, which your lawyer will discuss with you. Then they may either make a counter-demand or accept it depending on your personal goals for recovery.

 

If at any point during your claim you have questions about your claim, you can contact Cueria Law Firm to speak to your Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyer. We can be reached 24/7 by phone, text or email to answer your questions or address your concerns.
