Our Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You With This Difficult Process
After a car accident, victims often find themselves in disagreement with their insurance company, who they thought would be there for them after an unexpected injury. It’s important to remember insurance companies are for-profit corporations, focused primarily on improving their bottom line and paying out as little as possible for claims.
That means they may not want to pay your full insurance claim. It’s common for insurance companies to use tactics such as:
- Offering a lump sum of money early in the process that is far less than the value of your total losses.
- Denying your initial insurance claim amount.
- Contacting you after the accident for details and later using the things you say against you.
These are the reasons to contact an experienced car accident lawyer before speaking with the insurance company. Only discuss details of your injuries or the accident with your doctor and your car accident attorney.
Our lawyers will create an insurance claim that takes all of your damages into account. A car accident lawyer also knows how to handle it when an insurer fights your claim. A lawyer will communicate with the insurer for you and negotiate with them if your claim is denied.
The Louisiana car accident lawyers at Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards have decades of experience working with insurance companies on behalf of our clients. We understand the tactics and schemes they use to minimize your claim and we can negotiate fair compensation for you.
Our lawyers are committed to defending your rights against large insurance companies and we will utilize all of our resources to help get the compensation you deserve, no matter what type of accident you were involved in.
Louisiana is a “fault” car insurance state, which means that car wreck victims are allowed to seek compensation directly from the at-fault party – the at-fault party’s insurance company or their own insurance company. Typically, claimants first seek compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
After a car crash, an insurance company will attempt to confuse you with details, or pressure you to agree to a settlement that will not cover your losses over the long term. Any statements or comments you make to an insurance representative can potentially damage your pursuit of compensation during negotiations or in a trial. It’s not uncommon for those without an attorney to be at odds with their insurance company not long after an accident.
Our experienced car accident lawyers have a record of successfully handling accident cases throughout Louisiana. We can gather evidence, present it to the insurer and negotiate a settlement that makes sense for you. If necessary, our lawyers will take your case to court and present the case in a compelling way, so you have the best chance in a trial.
