If you or a loved one was recently injured in an auto accident, you probably have a lot of questions about what to do next in order to protect your rights as a victim. Over the years, our firm has helped hundreds of clients across the state of Louisiana who were injured in auto accidents. We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions brought to our firm in an effort to help you during this stressful and difficult time.

Why should I file a personal injury claim?

Filing a personal injury claim is the best and most effective way of protecting your rights and helping obtain justice. Those who have caused injury due to their reckless and negligent behavior should be held accountable for their actions. Filing a personal injury claim sends a strong signal to insurance companies that you will do everything possible to receive the compensation you need and deserve for your injuries.

How much compensation can I get for my personal injury claim?

The amount of compensation you may be ultimately awarded depends on a variety of factors. With the help of our lawyer, you may be able to obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible to cover all of the costs related to your car accident. If you suffered serious catastrophic injuries, you may also receive continuous compensation to cover the cost of future medical care.

Should I hire a New Orleans auto accident attorney?

Hiring our New Orleans personal injury attorney can strongly increase your chances of obtaining the highest amount of compensation possible. Depending on the severity of your injuries and the circumstances concerning the case, you may be able to receive compensation to cover the cost of medical bills, rehabilitative care and loss of income.

Can I try negotiating with the auto insurance company myself?

It is highly advisable that you do not try negotiating or settling with the auto insurance company on your own. Since you are not aware of how much compensation you are entitled to or the existing laws in place to protect you, insurers can exploit that and offer you the lowest amount of compensation possible. Protect yourself and your rights by hiring our personal injury lawyer to represent you as soon as possible. Attorney James Flinn can aggressively and relentlessly fight on your behalf to protect your rights and work towards the goal you desire.
