Being injured in a car accident is not what you imagined the day would hold when you left home. However, a reckless driver caused a crash that resulted in injuries. You have struggled to recover from your injuries while taking care of yourself and your family. The financial hardship created by a car accident has been difficult. The insurance company wants to settle the car accident claim, but you are not sure whether the settlement offer is fair. What should you do?
Contact our New Orleans car accident lawyers for a free consultation. We will review your case and the settlement offer. It is fair, we will tell you. If the insurance company is trying to cheat you out of the money you deserve, we will fight to get you a higher settlement amount.
Five Documents That Can Help Us Evaluate Your Case
During your initial consultation, we ask a lot of questions. We want to learn as much as possible about what happened to you. There are some documents that can help us evaluate your case. If you have copies of these documents, bring them with you to your appointment with a car accident attorney:
- Car accident report or police report
- Medical records and statements from your physician
- Copies of insurance policies
- Payroll records
- Bills, receipts, invoices, and other proof of expenses and financial losses
If you do not have these documents, don’t worry. When you hire our law firm to handle your car accident claim, we can help you gather the documents you need. Our legal team works to gather as much of the documentation for you as we can, so that you can focus on your recovery.
Please do not let a lack of documentation keep you from talking to an attorney. The most important thing for you right now is to get the legal advice you need to make a decision about your car accident case that is right for you.
What Compensation Could I Receive for A Car Accident Claim?
The amount of money you might receive for a car accident claim depends on numerous factors. Our attorneys carefully evaluate your claim to calculate the maximum value for your financial losses, pain, and suffering. In most cases, accident victims can receive compensation for:
- The cost of past and future medical treatment;
- Past and future loss of income and benefits;
- Decreases in earning potential;
- Physical, emotional, and mental pain and suffering;
- Scarring, disabilities, impairments, and disfigurement; and,
- Loss of quality of life or enjoyment of life.
The insurance company will undervalue your car accident claim. It will deny your claim, if possible. Our attorneys fight for fair compensation for all damages. If there is a question about liability, we aggressively investigate the case to gather evidence proving that you did not cause the car accident. We will not stop working to get you the best outcome possible for your case until we exhaust all legal avenues and remedies.
