Hiring a lawyer is an important decision if you have large medical bills, lost wages, or were injured due to negligence.
Accident.com connects you to a lawyer that makes sure you get paid everything you are entitled to. Your lawyer files your claim for you and then negotiates the amount of your settlement.
If the insurance company is believed to be acting in bad faith, your lawyer can request a trial and sue for a higher settlement.
Your lawyer will:
1) Request medical records for you.
2) Review police reports and medical charts.
3) Communicate back and forth with your insurance adjuster.
Accident.com lawyers do the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to.
People who hire attorneys statistically receive more money in their injury settlement. Even after paying the lawyer's contingency fee, people still walk away with more money than they probably would have received without an attorney.
You do not have to pay your attorney unless you win. When you win, your lawyer is paid a percentage of your final settlement.
This means the better you do, the better your lawyer does. It’s a win-win.
Bankruptcy, divorce, criminal charges, etc, can all affect your injury case. Your personal injury lawyer is familiar with different areas of law and can work with other attorneys if needed. Your Accident.com lawyer will work with your other lawyer (from other practice areas) to reach a solution in your best interest. A personal injury lawyer can also handle the insurance company's lawyers if your case goes past negotiations.
Louisiana abides by the comparative negligence rule, which means all parties involved in the accident will be responsible for the amount of negligence they contributed. For instance, a driver is found at fault for 75% of the accident, while you are found at fault for 25%. The total damages you may recover will be 25% less in order to account for the liability you bear.
It is in your best interest to seek legal council. Most attorneys in Louisiana (including New Orleans) work on a contingency basis. This means an attorney will earn a percentage of the reward they were able to get for you, instead of you paying upfront.
In Louisiana, you only have one year from the date of the accident to file a claim. After one year, you will lose your right to pursue compensation for damages or injuries. It is important to file your claim as soon as possible, given that Louisiana law permits a shorter statute of limitations than the majority of the country.
How you write your advertising copy will be based on where you will place your ad. If it’s a billboard ad, you’ll need a super catchy headline.
For the Accident.com founders, that question was: “Why is getting paid by insurance companies such a frustrating experience?" Frustrating is an understatement. Navigating the world of insurance is confusing, stressful and a step backward in time (hello, call centers). Even when they know they are covered, people know insurance companies make more money if they pay you less.
