How Can Hiring a New Orleans Car Accident Attorney Help Me?
Instead of dealing directly with an insurance adjuster, think about these three benefits of having one of our attorneys on your side:
Avoid Mistakes That Can Harm Your Claim
Even if you have dealt with insurance adjusters in the past, this claim may be different. The adjuster in your current claim may use tactics that the other adjuster did not utilize, such as telling you that he needs a recorded statement or a medical release. Providing a statement or signing a medical release can provide information for the insurance company to use that can harm your claim. Instead of trying to figure out what you should and should not agree to provide to the company, let our attorneys do that for you.
Know the True Value of Your Claim
An insurance adjuster’s job is to pay the least amount of money to settle your claim. The offer from the adjuster may not represent the true value of your claim. Our attorneys evaluate your claim to calculate your economic damages and non-economic (pain and suffering) damages to arrive at a figure that maximizes the amount of money you might receive for your damages.
You Have Someone to Investigate Your Accident
You must prove the other driver caused the crash before you can recover compensation for your damages. If the insurance company disputes fault, you could be in a difficult position. Without evidence to prove the other driver caused the crash, you may not receive any money for your claim. Our attorneys have extensive experience investigating accidents to determine the cause of the crash and securing the evidence needed to prove fault.
