What Happens After a Car Accident in NOLA?

Once you have been in a car accident, you may begin questioning what you will do next, such as how you will pay your bills or who will pay for your medical expenses. Being in a car accident, especially one where you are injured can lead to a number of questions that you do not have the answers to. An experienced personal injury attorney at our firm will be able to assist you with the answers you need. At Cueria Law Firm, we evaluate your case and help you to file a claim when needed. We make sure that you are compensated for the injuries caused due to the automobile accident.

Stay on the scene of a car accident…

When a car accident occurs in Louisiana, you must stay on the scene. Information must be gathered from the other driver including their name, telephone number, license plate number and their automobile insurance info. This information should be gathered from every driver involved in the wreck. Take note of the conditions of the road during the collision as well as the number of individuals in each vehicle involved. Stay on the scene until police arrive and speak to them, describing how the crash took place. You want the police to hear your side of the story for the accident report.

Don’t speak unless you have to…

Choose your words carefully when speaking to police as well as anyone on the scene. You do not want to admit liability as this statement can be used against you via the insurance company of the other driver. Only answer questions with as minimal talking and extra opinions as possible. Be sure to cooperate with the officer but be sure you choose your words wisely when discussing what happened.

If you are able, take pictures…

It is also a good idea to take pictures of the car accident and surrounding area if you are able to after the accident occurs. This allows you to have proof of the conditions surrounding the wreck to show if there were rainy conditions, signs that were not clearly visible, etc.

Seek medical care immediately following a car accident…

Seek medical care when needed so that your injuries are treated. This will also create a record of how you were affected by the wreck. Records are vital when it comes to proving your case in a court of law if it comes to that. You must have accurate records from a medical perspective so that you can show what was involved in your injuries in the accident.  Once you are able, speak to a New Orleans car accident attorney in order to see if you have a case.
