Auto Accident Lawyers in New Orleans, Louisiana

The days following a car wreck can be some of the most devastating, stressful, and chaotic times of your life. On top of dealing with immense pain and possible injury, you now have to figure out what you’re going to do next.

Our New Orleans auto accident lawyers know what you’re going through and are here to help you rebuild your life and fight for any money you’re owed for your losses.

What Are My Rights After a Car Accident?

Many people hesitate to take legal action after being involved in a car accident because they aren’t sure if they have a case. But we’re here to tell you that you have rights!

If you’ve been hurt in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you have a legal right to seek compensation for damages. The other party’s insurance company may try to convince you that you don’t have a case, but don’t let them tell you what you deserve. Insurance adjusters are trained experts with one goal in mind: to pay you as little money as possible.

When you call The Law Offices of Blaine Barrilleaux, our experienced auto accident lawyers will work hard to make sure the insurance company isn’t taking advantage of you. You have rights. Let us fight for those rights on your behalf.

Do You Need an Attorney After Your Car Wreck?

While you aren’t required to hire an attorney after a car wreck, having tough, experienced legal representation can make this difficult process much easier for you and your family.

Navigating the complex legal system when you’re dealing with serious injuries or grieving the death of a loved one can be incredibly challenging and may even seem impossible. Our injury car accident lawyers can obtain your medical records, fill out paperwork, gather any evidence that’s required to build a strong case, as well as speak with the insurance adjusters on your behalf. This way you can focus on getting your life back to normal, while we focus on working towards the best possible solution to your case.

Not only can an attorney handle each and every stressful stage of the legal process for you, but the right lawyer can also improve your chances of recovering the maximum amount of compensation possible for your case.

How Much Does an Attorney Cost?

Many people avoid calling an attorney after a car accident because they don’t think they can afford one, especially when they’re already dealing with piling medical bills, car repair expenses, and lost wages.

But the truth is, you CAN afford our legal services. It costs absolutely nothing to hire our law firm. At The Law Offices of Blaine Barrilleaux, we strongly believe that everyone in our New Orleans community deserves quality legal representation. That’s why we offer free case evaluations and don’t charge any upfront fees. In fact, you won’t owe us anything unless we win for you.

Do You Need a Police Report After an Auto Accident?

After a car accident, you should always call the police to come to the scene. It’s never a good idea to make verbal agreements with the other party involved or try to handle things yourself.

The responding police officer will write a report that details what happened and any other important information related to the accident. This report is extremely important should you decide to take legal action later on because it can serve as evidence to support your claim. When determining who’s at fault for the wreck, insurance adjusters almost always look at the police report first.

If a police report was never filed, it can be difficult to prove liability and that your injuries and other damages were a direct result of the accident.

Common Injuries After a Car Accident

A car accident can happen in the blink of an eye and change your life forever. We’ve listed some of the most common injuries people suffer after car wrecks that can lead to permanent, life-altering damage or even death.

While any number of injuries can result from a car wreck, if you’ve experienced one of these injuries or any serious injury, please don’t hesitate to call our law office. You may be entitled to compensation!

Head trauma, such as concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), are common in car accidents because the impact of a crash can easily cause the victim’s head to hit the side window, steering wheel, or other flying objects. Head injuries are often very serious and can lead to further complications in the future, especially if they aren’t properly treated. Since such brain injuries can be difficult to diagnose, it’s important to be seen by a medical professional as soon as possible after a car accident, to avoid complications like headaches, sleeping problems and other serious, brain-related conditions.

Car accident victims frequently suffer from whiplash, the commonly-known name for muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries. Your body experiences many sudden, dramatic movements during a car wreck. These fast, unnatural motions can seriously strain your muscles and other soft tissues, causing immense pain that may take months or even years to heal.

Severe damage can also be done to your back and spinal cord during a car accident. A common injury people experience after being involved in a car wreck is a herniated disc. This happens when one or more vertebrae in your spine rupture or shift out of place. Back and spinal cord injuries can cause tremendous pain and typically require extensive medical treatment.

Broken bones are incredibly common car accident injuries, especially the ribs. Your ribs are fragile. The placement of the steering wheel, the force of the airbag, and the shock of the crash, make the ribs vulnerable to breakage in even light to moderate impact crashes. Broken arms, legs, hips, and other bones are also a common result of car accidents and may require surgery and/or a long recovery time.

A car accident can leave you with more than just physical injuries. Many car wreck victims suffer from debilitating mental and emotional injuries, like post-traumatic stress disorder, that make everyday activities, such as driving to work, challenging or even impossible.

How Are Medical Bills Paid After a Car Accident?

Serious injuries usually mean seriously big medical bills. When you’re dealing with immense pain and trying to recover from your injuries, the last thing you should have to worry about is how you’re going to pay your medical bills.

The cost of surgeries, hospital stays, doctor’s visits, and more can quickly rise to tens of thousands of dollars. You may not have a way to pay for those expenses, especially if your injuries prevent you from working and making a living.

If you’ve been hurt in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and any costs required for the diagnosis and treatment of your injuries.

Typically, you’ll file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company and they may cover any costs associated with your injuries. However, this can be easier said than done. If you’re in pain and wondering how you’re going to pay your medical bills, call Blaine! With over 20 years of experience helping injured victims across Louisiana get what they deserve, our auto accident lawyers may be able to help you too.

What Types of Compensation Are Available?

If you’ve been involved in a car accident in New Orleans that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including but not limited to:

Reimbursement for your medical expenses may include all costs that occurred as a direct result of your accident. In the event that your injuries require ongoing medical care, compensation may also be available to help cover any future medical bills.

If your car was damaged or totaled as a result of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the cost of repairs or replacement of your vehicle.

If your injuries limit or entirely prevent you from working while you recover, compensation may be available for a portion of your lost wages.

A car accident can have a major effect on your quality of life. If you’re dealing with serious mental and/or physical anguish after your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. While compensation can’t change what you’ve been through, it can help you and your family begin to move forward.
