Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in a personal injury case!

star

There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

Understanding Your Options After a Car Accident in Louisiana

understanding options after car accident

The period immediately after an accident can be a hectic time. It’s common for accident victims to forget that they are still in control of what happens next – not the insurance companies or the other drivers involved. Depending on the severity of the accident, you may want to seek compensation for the damages that you have sustained. 

If you have been involved in a car accident, there are probably many questions running through your head. The car accident attorneys at Cueria Law Firm in Louisiana are here to help you get through the accident and back to your life. Contact our office today for a consultation with our experienced and compassionate attorneys who can help you understand your options after a car accident. 

General Steps After a Car Accident 

The general rule of thumb after a car accident is simple: remain calm and collect evidence. If there was substantial property damage or injury involved in your accident, you will likely be dealing with insurance companies. Insurance companies are in the business of making money. They are not in the business of being your friend. Collect as much information from the scene of the accident as possible to help support your case. In car accident situations, it is always better to be over prepared when dealing with insurance companies. The more documentation you can provide to the insurance companies, the better the chances that you will get a reasonable financial settlement. 

Some of the information you should collect after an accident includes: 

  • Names and contact information for the other drivers involved, witnesses, and police officers
  • Insurance information for the other drivers involved
  • Statements from witnesses
  • Photos of the accident scene, including the locations of the cars involved, damage to the vehicles, injuries, and license plates
  • Your own personal written or recorded account of the events 
  • Police reports 

If you were injured, you should seek immediate medical attention and obtain several copies of the medical report. It is not uncommon for accident victims to delay medical care or to not seek any medical help at all because they don’t believe they were injured. It is better to err on the side of safety and get checked out soon after your accident. Doing so can also help your case if and when the insurance company offers you a settlement. 

When to Hire an Attorney

A practiced car accident attorney can help you deal with insurance companies and recover the fair compensation that is warranted in your case. Do not talk to the insurance company without first consulting with an attorney like those at Cueria Law Firm. Anything that you disclose to an insurance adjuster can be used against you in your case, impacting your ability to get the settlement you deserve. 

A skilled car accident attorney may be able to help you collect damages for more than just vehicle damage. Some of the other damages you might be able to collect with the help of a Louisiana car accident attorney include: 

  • Property repair or replacement for items inside the vehicle
  • Car rental reimbursement while your vehicle is being repaired
  • Other incidental expenses such as cab fare after the accident 

If you were injured in the accident, your attorney could also help you get compensation for damages such as: 

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of wages 
  • Rehabilitation  
  • Pain and suffering 

An attorney is not required in an auto accident, but it would be unwise to try to go through this process on your own. Car accidents are unexpected events that can have lasting repercussions for all involved. Protect yourself and your loved ones by seeking the help of an attorney who knows how to fight for the rights of accident victims in Louisiana. Call the office of Cueria Law Firm today, and our team of professionals will review your case to determine your legal options for recovering the financial compensation you need.
