With so many vehicles on I-310, Airline Highway, and River Road, it’s no surprise that automobile accidents are the main cause of personal injury in Destrehan, Louisiana. There are just too many distracted drivers. Too many people speeding and not paying attention.
Everyone has the right to feel safe as they drive through Destrehan. But, unfortunately, accidents happen. Even to the good drivers. When those rights have been taken away as a direct result of another person’s negligence, you may have a good personal injury claim.
Like most hard-working people in Destrehan, you probably don’t like the idea of having to sue someone. We understand and respect that. Just remember, the accident wasn’t your fault and now you’re left dealing with the aftermath of a painful or disabling personal injury.
There’s no shame in wanting your medicals bills paid and your property replaced.
Should I Contact a Destrehan Personal Injury Attorney for a Car Accident?
Going against the insurance company after your accident isn’t always easy. You can handle your claim alone, but we don’t recommend it. The big insurance companies have deep pockets and can hire teams of lawyers. One of their tactics is to get you to quickly settle your claim. Sometimes just days after your accident and always for the lowest amount.
Don’t do this!
Depending on how you were hit and the type of injury you received, it may take a while for you to feel the full effects of your injury. Some injuries like back injuries and head trauma may take several weeks and many trips to the doctor to get a full diagnosis.
If you sign paperwork with the insurance company right after your accident, you may be waving away your right to get fully compensated for future medical bills and expenses.
An experienced local attorney will work with your doctors to get a complete understanding of your injury or any limitations that the injury has caused you. This information will be used to come up with a fair settlement amount. One that will cover all of your medical bills, lost wages, and expenses.
Damages that your attorney will fight for include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Physical therapy
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Future medical bills
- Future lost wages

Agreed. There are A LOT of personal injury lawyers in St. Charles and surrounding parishes. So how do you know who to hire?
After your wreck, you may be tempted to call one of those “big-time” lawyers that you saw on TV or on a gigantic billboard. But are they any good?

Injured by an 18 Wheeler? You Need an Experienced Truck Accident Lawyer!
Living in Destrehan, avoiding I-310 and Airline Hwy. is all but impossible. Hundreds of large work trucks and 18 wheelers drive through each day and when an accident occurs with an 18 wheeler, the effects are often catastrophic and the victim is left with very serious personal injuries. Occasionally wrongful death can tragically result from an 18 wheeler wreck.
Accidents involving 18 wheelers or large work trucks are much more serious than your average car crash and getting the trucking company to pay for your injuries can be difficult.
The trucking companies usually have a team of lawyers skilled in deflecting accountability. They may say that the accident wasn’t their fault, or they may try to blame the driver and say that the company had nothing to do with it.
An experienced personal injury attorney will fight the trucking company and make sure that your settlement is fair and covers all your damages.
