You may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. To learn more, contact our New Orleans attorneys for a free case evaluation.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

Louisiana is an “at-fault” car insurance state, which means that automobile accident victims are generally allowed to seek compensation directly from the at-fault party and the at-fault party’s insurance company.

However, insurance companies may attempt to confuse you or compel you into agreeing to a settlement that is insufficient to cover your losses. This is why it’s helpful to have an lawyer there on your behalf during negotiations, to help ensure you receive the compensation you need.

Investigating Your Claim

Because the other party’s insurance company will be doing its own investigation into the wreck, you’ll need an attorney to perform an even more thorough investigation, collecting and presenting evidence that illustrates that the other party was negligent and therefore responsible for your damages.

During an investigation, your Morgan & Morgan lawyer may:

  • Review police reports and photographs.
  • Interview witness statements.
  • Review video footage, if available.
  • Research both parties’ driving records.
  • Analyze your medical reports with the help of experts.
  • Recreate the scene of the crash.

This can help us determine how much compensation you’re owed in damages, and how much you will request.

If you or a loved one has been badly hurt in a motor vehicle crash, contact Morgan & Morgan today. The statute of limitation for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Louisiana is only one year, so don’t hesitate.
