Suffered an Injury in a Car Accident? Get Help From a Local Westwego Personal Injury Attorney

Car accidents seem to happen daily in Westwego, LA. You see how people drive on the Westbank Expressway! It's a scary fact that automobile wrecks are the main cause of personal injury in Westwego.

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

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

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

How Can a Westwego Personal Injury Lawyer Help You?

Regardless of what type of accident you were in, a local personal injury attorney will help you obtain a fair settlement that covers all your damages.

Like most hard-working people in Westwego, you probably aren’t the type sue and usually like 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 with the aftermath of a serious personal injury.

There is no shame in making sure your medical bills are paid, your property is replaced, and your lost wages are covered. You have been injured and there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to be made whole again.

Hiring a personal injury lawyer in Jefferson Parish will prevent you from making some costly mistakes. For starters, the insurance company may want to settle with you shortly after the accident.

Don’t settle for less than you deserve!

Some injuries like head trauma and back injuries can 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 your losses.

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

That TV Lawyer on the Billboard Isn’t Always Your Best Option

You may be tempted to call an attorney you saw on TV – you know the ones we’re talking about. The ones with the catchy jingles and theatrical productions. And you’re not the only one.

But are they actually any good? Or do they seem that way because they spend a lot on commercials? With so much exposure their client base is huge and you may run the risk of being treated like just another client. Just another case.

What we offer that the big TV firms in New Orleans can't is compassionate care. We welcome you and fight and care for you like one of our own.

You need someone whose only interest is your best interest. Someone who will work 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 by an 18 Wheeler? You Need an Experienced Westwego 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.

Living in Westwego, it is nearly impossible to avoid the hundreds of work trucks and 18 wheelers that drive through each day. If you were injured by a large work truck or 18 wheeler, you may be considering handling the case yourself. You can do this, 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.
