Far too often, insurance companies take advantage of accident victims by offering settlements that are far too small and not enough to cover the total cost of their accident expenses.

Lamothe Law Firm has secured judgments and settlements exceeding $2 million for vehicle accidents.

We know what it takes to win. We won’t settle for second best when it comes to your recovery. So call a New Orleans law firm that’s been rated as one of the best personal injury law firms in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

Don’t Settle With the Insurance Company without an Attorney

After being involved in an accident, it is imperative that you speak to a lawyer before discussing your case with the other party’s insurance company. Their only goal is to settle your claim as quickly as possible, and for as little money as they can manage. The insurance company of the other driver is not your friend. Without a personal injury lawyer by your side, it can be hard to tell just how much money you are entitled to. For this reason, we ask you to get in touch with us as soon as you have been injured.

We can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure that you get the money you deserve. If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a reasonable settlement, we will not hesitate to take your case all the way to Court.

Don’t settle for less than what you deserve; come to The Lamothe Law Firm.

Let Us Fight for the Compensation
You Deserve

If your auto accident was caused by another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. An experienced auto accident lawyer can help you file auto accident claims to seek compensation for past and future damages related to your personal injury, including:

• Cost of medical treatment including future care
• Loss of income- time from work due to injury
• Lost earning capacity – Inability to work at same level
• Other expenses – travel to medical visits- out of pocket expenses
• Disability- limitations you experience as a result of an accident
• Physical and emotional pain and suffering

In Louisiana, punitive damages may also be awarded in cases where alcohol is a factor.

We are experienced in dealing with insurance companies, so you can rest easy knowing that the negligent party’s insurance company, and even your own insurance company, will not take advantage of you. Get the money that you deserve after an accident.

What To Do if You’re Involved in an Auto Accident

If you are involved in an auto accident, be sure to follow these steps to help protect your health, safety and interests after the accident:

1.  Notify the police in order to file a detailed report.
2.  Gather all contact information, driver’s license number and insurance information from the other driver.
3.  If possible, take photos of the scene.
4.  Never admit fault at the scene of an accident since it can be legally held against you.
5.  Never let an insurance adjuster record your voice or obtain a written statement from you.
6.  Obtain the names and addresses of all witnesses.

While auto accidents are normally dealt with through insurance companies, some may result in personal injury or property damage, and need to be handled by an experienced and qualified attorney.

It is important to get medical treatment right after an auto accident if you believe you are injured. Claims for personal injuries may be contingent on medical records linking the auto accident to the injuries received. The longer you wait to get treated, the more difficult it may be to prove the connection.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious auto accident, the best way to protect yourself is to speak with a qualified attorney about your legal rights and options.

While law suits are not always necessary after an accident, they are often one of the only recourses available to fairly compensate a person who has been seriously injured in an auto accident.

Please contact us today to speak with an experienced and qualified attorney who can evaluate your claim and determine the best way to protect your best interests and get you the compensation you deserve.
