Injured in an Automobile Wreck? Do You Really Need to Hire an Eden Isle Personal Injury Attorney?

How Can an Eden Isle Personal Injury Lawyer Help You After Your Wreck?

With I-10 being a stone’s throw away from Eden Isle, Louisiana, car and truck accidents seem like a daily event. You see how people drive!

Driving on I-10 is stressful, even on the best day. There are just too many people speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, or talking away on their phones. Basically driving like they got their license out of a Happy Meal.

With so many people on the roads not paying attention, accidents will happen. Even to the good drivers. When your right to feel safe on the road has been taken away by a careless, inattentive driver, you may have a good personal injury claim.

Is it Necessary to Hire an Eden Isle Personal Injury Attorney?

No one is telling you that you have to hire an attorney, but it is recommended. We understand that you probably like to handle things on your own and we respect that. Just be aware that the insurance companies aren’t looking out for your best interest and don’t always play fair.

A local personal injury lawyer is familiar with the tricks that the insurance companies like to play. One of their tactics is to get you to settle out shortly after your accident. Don’t do this.

The amount they offer you is always their lowest amount, but they will tell you the opposite. Also, you may not be feeling the full extent of your injuries in the days following your accident and you may not have been fully diagnosed.

Some injuries like head and back injuries can take several trips to the doctor to get a complete diagnosis. If you sign anything with the insurance company, you may be waving your rights to full compensation.

Like most hard-working people in Eden Isle, you probably don’t like the idea of having to sue someone. Remember, a settlement isn’t a handout. The accident wasn’t your fault and now you are left dealing with the aftermath of a painful, debilitating injury. There’s no shame in wanting your medicals paid and your property replaced.

Your Attorney Will Fight for You to Receive Compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Future medical bills
  • Future lost wages

There Are so Many Car Accident Lawyers! How do I Hire the Right Eden Isle Attorney?

Yes, there are A LOT of personal injury attorneys out there. With so many lawyers advertising their services, choosing the right one can be difficult.

You may be tempted to contact one of those “big-time” lawyers you saw on TV or on a gigantic billboard. And you wouldn’t be the first.

But how good are they really? They seem “big-time” but maybe that’s because they can afford to advertise themselves that way.

With so much exposure, their client base is huge. You can hire them but don’t be surprised if you end up feeling like just another client. Just another case.

What we have that the big firms can’t come close to offering is that we make it personal.

You need someone whose only interest is your best interest. Someone who will compassionately fight hard for you against the big bullies of the world – like insurance companies.

When you are injured in a wreck, you don't just need a car accident lawyer—you need a trustworthy advocate and confidant. Someone who will understand the physical pain and stress you are experiencing.

We only accept a limited number of cases each year because we want to ensure you and your case receive the time and attention that you deserve.

Injured in an 18 Wheeler Wreck? You Need an Experienced Eden Isle Personal Injury Lawyer!

Accidents involving large work trucks and 18 wheelers are some of the most serious and damaging types of automobile wrecks. They often result in some of the most devastating and life-altering personal injuries, and on occasion, some have tragic consequences.

Living in Eden Isle, it’s almost impossible to avoid I-10 and the thousands of large trucks and 18 wheelers that drive by each day. If you were injured by an 18 wheeler, it isn’t wise to handle the case yourself.

The trucking companies can afford to hire lawyers who are very skilled at deflecting accountability. They may say that the accident wasn’t their fault or that it was the fault of the driver and the company had nothing to do with it.

The trucking company’s number one priority is their bottom line, not your injury or well-being.

Regardless of the reason for your personal injury, you have rights under the law that our team will fight for to make you whole again and bring you peace of mind.
