MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

Car accidents are an unfortunate reality of life, especially in a busy city like New Orleans, Louisiana. With more cars on the road than ever, accidents are bound to occur due to texting while driving, speeding, intoxication, or negligence. If it happens to you, Breaux Law Firm can help.

New Orleans automobile accidents can cause personal injury, serious harm, or even death; if harm has been caused as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Breaux Law Firm can help assess your situation to ensure that you’re compensated for any injury. Additionally, Breaux Law Firm can give the support you or a loved one may need so that the recovery process can be smooth and worry-free.

If You’ve Been In An Accident

  • First, ensure you’re safe and that you or anyone else in the car is not severely harmed.
  • Next, call the police and report the accident.
  • Once you’ve called for help and can exit your vehicle safely, take photographs if possible of: the damage to the vehicles involved, the locations of the vehicles after the accident, the license plate of the other vehicle involved, and the street or intersection where the accident took place.
  • If there are any witnesses to the accident, get their names, address, and contact information.
  • Be sure to obtain the police report number from the investigating officer.
  • Take notes, videos, and photographs so you can remember any helpful details in relation to the accident.
  • Call Breaux Law Firm.

Breaux Law Firm can contact the responsible party’s insurers to negotiate on your behalf after an accident, especially when the other driver has been negligent and caused the accident. If the insurance company complies and you’re compensated for what you’re entitled to, then that’s a successful case. However, if an insurance company doesn’t comply, Breaux Law Firm can take further legal action for you. Additionally, if you’ve lost a loved one in an automobile accident, Breaux Law Firm can help you get the compensation you’re entitled to by proving negligence and the reason for the wrongful death. Don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to serve you and protect your rights.

Common Car Accident Questions

If you or a family member has recently been the victim of an automobile accident, you may have some questions about how to proceed, especially if you feel you’ve been the victim of negligence. You’re not alone in this; you can rely on us to help you along the way. Below are some answers to commonly asked questions:

  • Who will pay for my vehicle repairs or my medical expenses?
    • Before this can be determined, it’s important to get the contact information of all parties involved in the accident, including their name, address, contact information (phone or email address), and insurance information.
  • Is my case strong enough to hire a law firm and file a lawsuit?
    • YES! Call the experienced attorneys at Breaux Law Firm for a free consultation and we’ll let you know where you stand.
  • Can my insurance cover any of the costs? If they deny my claim, what are my next steps?

  • If the other driver has been negligent, what can I do about it and will it make an impact on my case?

However, it’s always a good idea to seek legal advice, as there are exceptions in which the statute of limitations may be halted and the deadline for filing a claim extended.
