Though common, car accidents can involve complex litigation and they often give rise to claims for compensatory damages. Causes of car accidents vary, and it's important to have an experienced Lafayette auto accident lawyer
on your side.
At Law Office of Jason M. Welborn
, we understand not just the rules of the road of Louisiana
and the special duties imposed on commercial and public carriers, but also the complex scientific and engineering principles necessary to unravel just how a motor vehicle accident occurred. The type of motor vehicle accident you have been involved in can greatly impact the outcome of your case. Trying to handle your own car accident claim always results in a lower compensation for your property damages and personal injuries.
Insurance companies can NEVER be trusted to look out for your best interests. Insurance Companies are in the business of making money. They would never, ever pay the full value of any claim unless forced to. In Louisiana, there are stringent time limitations for filing car accident lawsuits. The insurance company for the person at fault is not going to remind you that your time is running out. And while some insurance companies take the approach of letting the time run out, others prefer to contact injured persons immediately, when they are in need of money. They are looking to settle cheap.
As soon after the car accident as possible, you may be contacted by the insurance company and asked to make a recorded statement, or to settle the claim. Be careful in deciding whether or not you want to give a statement. The insurance company is looking for any reason to deny your car accident claim or reduce the amount of money they are going to offer you. The insurance company is not looking out for you, even though its insured caused you damages and injuries. The insurance companies pay their attorneys to make sure that you get paid as little as possible.
