Time is of the essence

The time immediately following an accident can be chaotic, especially if you sustained a serious injury.

This burden will continue to affect your daily life for as long as you are hurt. With so much going on, finding an attorney to handle your injury claim may seem like it can wait. However, by waiting to hire counsel you could put your claim at risk. That is why it is in your best interest to reach out to a New Orleans car accident attorney right away.

Some benefits calling an attorney immediately include:

  • Complying with all legal deadlines including the statute of limitations
  • Interviewing witnesses before they become unavailable
  • Handling communication with insurance companies and lawyers
  • Investigating your claim to establish liability
  • Negotiating the settlement of your claim

If you wait too long, you could lose the right to pursue damages in your case. To ensure you recover the compensation you deserve, contact Bart Bernard Injury Lawyers.

Dealing with insurance companies

Of all the benefits of calling an attorney right away, dealing with the other driver’s insurance company is potentially the greatest. These insurance companies will often contact injury victims immediately after an accident. In some cases, they are trying to elicit an incriminating statement from you. Other times, they are after a low-ball settlement that will save them money in the long run.

Knowledgeable attorneys understand that these settlement offers rarely cover more than the immediate damages following an accident. The payout might cover your emergency room expenses, but it won’t be enough to compensate you for future medical bills or lost earnings. Attorney Bart Bernard and his legal team understand the games insurance companies play, and we are ready to work toward the compensation you deserve.
