Do You Really Need to Hire a Car Accident Attorney in Schriever, Louisiana?

The selfish actions of a few negligent drivers can have serious life-changing consequences. It’s a relief that with so many accidents most are relatively minor, though unfortunately, many have long-lasting effects, and a few are tragically fatal.

Everyone in Schriever has the right to feel safe on the road, but when those rights are violated by a reckless driver, that person should be held accountable.

Like most hard-working people in Schriever, you probably don’t like the idea of having to sue someone and prefer to handle things on your own. And we respect that. Just keep in mind that the accident wasn’t your fault and now you’re left dealing with the aftermath of a painful, debilitating injury.

Why Should You Hire a Schriever Personal Injury Attorney?

Going against the insurance company after your accident isn’t always easy. You can handle your claim alone, but we don’t recommend it. One of the tactics the insurance companies use 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 and of 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 your medical bills and future 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

With so Many Personal Injury Attorneys, Which One is the Right One?

You may have been tempted to call that lawyer you saw on TV or on that gigantic billboard. And you’re not the only one. With so much exposure, they get an assembly line of clients. You can hire them, but don’t be surprised if you feel like just another client on their assembly line. Just another number. Just another case.

What we have that the big TV firms don’t offer is that we make it personal. We welcome you in as part of the family and fight for you like one of our own.

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 a Truck or 18 Wheeler Wreck? You Need an Experienced Schriever Truck Accident Attorney

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 large work trucks or 18 wheelers 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 the accident.

An experienced truck accident attorney will fight the trucking company and make sure that your settlement is enough to cover your expenses and make you whole again.

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.
