How do You Find the Right Personal Injury Lawyer in River Ridge? We Make it Personal.

Everyone has the right to feel safe as they drive through River Ridge, Louisiana but unfortunately some people just don’t seem to care. You see them. On their phones or just simply not paying attention. The roads would be so much safer without them.

Unfortunately, accidents happen to everyone. Even to the good drivers.

With so many accidents, it’s a relief that most are minor, though sadly, many have long-lasting effects, and a few are tragically fatal.

If you or loved one have suffered a personal injury in River Ridge because of someone else’s negligence or distracted driving, you may have a good personal injury claim.

Why Should You Hire a River Ridge Personal Injury Attorney?

We get that you probably like to handle things on your own. Like most River Ridge residents, you are hard-working, and probably not the type to sue someone. We understand and respect that. Just keep in mind that the accident wasn’t your fault and now you have to deal with the aftermath of a painful, debilitating injury.

There’s no shame in wanting your medical bills to be paid, your property replaced, and your lost wages to be covered. That isn’t too much to ask for.

The insurance companies will try their best to avoid paying you the full amount of damages after a car crash. One of their tricks is to get you to quickly settle your claim shortly after your accident.

Don’t do this!

Some injuries like head trauma and back injuries may take several weeks and several trips to the doctor to fully diagnose. You may not be aware of the full extent of your injuries in the days after your accident, and if you sign anything, you may be waiving your right to full compensation.

A local personal injury attorney will work with your doctors to get a full understanding of the severity of your injury and how that injury has affected your everyday life. That knowledge will be used to make sure your settlement value is fair and covers all your medical bills and expenses.

Damages that your attorney will fight for include:

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

Were You Injured by a Large Work Truck or 18 Wheeler? You Need an Experienced River Ridge Truck Accident Attorney

Large truck and 18 wheeler accidents result in some of the most devastating and life-altering personal injuries, and on occasion, some have tragic consequences.

If you were injured by a large work truck or 18 wheeler, you may be considering handling the case yourself. You can, but it isn’t wise.

The trucking companies can afford to hire teams of 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.
