What You Do After An Accident Makes A Big Difference

What to do after a car accident? This is an initial question that probably goes through your mind after that initial shock wears off.

Here are some steps that will ensure your rights can be fully protected:

  1. Seek the appropriate medical treatment, fully document your injuries and treatment, and seek follow-up care if your pain or injuries persist.
  2. Write down the name of the other vehicle's driver and owner, including his or her insurance information.
  3. Call the police and obtain a police report of the crash.
  4. Contact your own insurance company and report the accident.
  5. Consult an experienced Louisiana personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Soon after your accident, the negligent driver's insurance company might contact you and offer you a sum of money as compensation. You should NOT speak with these representatives until you have hired an attorney to be on your side. These offers almost always are for far less than what you might really deserve.

We will work with insurance agencies on your behalf, and rest assured, we will be very clear if we feel a settlement offer does not reflect the true value of your claim.
