The Law Firm of Eddie Clark & Associates represents and protects people in Louisiana who have suffered a loss as a result of a car accident, and we can help you on your potentially difficult road ahead. If you have been injured in a car accident, contact our experienced Louisiana car accident attorneys so that we can help you recover the compensation to which you are entitled by law.
Louisiana drivers owe a duty of care to others on the road. This duty requires that drivers refrain from engaging in behavior that prevents them from safely operating their vehicles. Examples of unsafe driving include:
These are only a few examples of driver negligence that can lead to car accidents. Car accidents may also be caused, either wholly or in part, by malfunctioning car parts, poorly maintained roads, or inadequate signs in construction areas. An experienced attorney will explore all of these possibilities and more to ensure that all responsible parties are held accountable for your injuries.
One major unexpected battle may occur with insurance. Insurance is meant to make things easier but there are instances where the opposing driver’s insurance company denies liability for the driver’s actions. Your insurance company may be quick to come to your aid, but more likely it will present you with a large amount of confusing information. It is highly advisable to avoid releasing information against your interests to your insurance company or to opposing insurance companies. A skilled car accident attorney will be able to help you navigate the insurance documents and speak with the insurance company on your behalf.
Other insurance issues may be depth of coverage. In Louisiana, it is against the law to drive without car insurance, but that doesn’t take all reckless drivers off the road. Even for drivers with insurance, some injuries can be so costly that an insurance policy may not be able to cover all associated costs. Louisiana requires lower insurance limits than other states. There is only a minimum $15,000 insurance requirement, which could leave many medical bills uncovered. Your insurance company may cover remaining costs, but you may want an attorney to explore other potential compensation sources.
An injured party has one year from the time of a car accident to file a lawsuit. In some cases, this time could be extended if injuries are not discovered until after the accident, but it is best to pursue your claim as soon after the accident as possible. If you contact us immediately after your accident, we will have the maximum time to ensure evidence still exists and your wrongful parties have not hid funds or left the area.
