Haughton Car Accident Lawyer

From rear-end collisions to drunk driving accidents, any car crash can be a traumatic and terrifying experience. To make things worse, sustaining an injury during a crash will leave you with high medical bills and you may not be able to return to work right away. These are just two examples of the financial burden a car accident can impose. The majority of car crashes in Haughton, and throughout Louisiana, are caused by the negligence of another person. If you were in an accident and were not to blame, you can file a claim against the liable party. Our Haughton car accident lawyer can help you do it.

Do Not Deal with the Insurance Company After a Crash

In the days and weeks following a car accident, the insurance company representing the liable driver will likely contact you. The adjuster will act very friendly and they may even accept liability and tell you that they want to help. They do not. The main job of the insurance company is to limit the amount of damages they will ultimately pay. To do this, they use many different strategies.

For example, they may ask you to sign a medical release. They do this so they can comb through your medical records and find a pre-existing condition to blame your injuries on, and not the car accident. They may also ask you to provide a recorded statement so they can use your own words against you in the future. To ensure that your rights are upheld, you should always speak to an attorney first after a crash. If the insurer tries to contact you, your lawyer can then speak to them on your behalf.

Collecting Evidence After a Car Accident

To determine who is liable for your injuries, an extensive investigation must first be conducted. Your lawyer will investigate the road conditions, the speed of the other drivers, and determine if anyone involved was intoxicated. Throughout the investigation, your lawyer will also collect evidence to prove your case. Some of the most important evidence in car accident claims is as follows:

  • Eyewitness statements,
  • Accident reports, police reports, and other important documentation relevant to the crash,
  • Pictures and video footage of the scene,
  • Medical documentation showing the nature and severity of your injuries, and
  • An injury journal outlining how your injuries have impacted your life.

While you are recovering, it is not the time to collect this evidence yourself. Our attorney will know the evidence that is important to your case and collect it so you obtain the maximum damages you are entitled to.
