How an Alexandria Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help Your Claim
When you’re injured in a personal injury accident, there are a number of hardships you might face:
- financial issues due to medical bills, property damage, and lost wages
- mobility issues stemming from pulled muscles, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and other injuries. You could be left requiring assistive technologies for months, years, or even the rest of your life
- lost work because of your injuries, leading to lost wages, or even the inability to work in the future
- overall health impacts, including physical and mental well-being, can be severe
The costs of your injury can extend far beyond your medical bills. They can also include your pain and anguish, mental suffering, and current and future lost wages. These injuries and losses aren’t your fault after an accident—and you deserve restitution for the hardships you’re experiencing.
Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys know that you need more than the minimum in compensation so you can heal. Our Alexandria personal injury lawyers can help you seek damages from the liable party or their insurance. We can help you negotiate a settlement, file legal paperwork, and even argue your case in court.
When Should I Call a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Immediately after your accident, of course, you should call 911. The medical professionals who arrive on the scene will be able to address and triage your injuries. In addition, the police officer who arrives will collect necessary evidence that will be useful in your claim.
However, as soon as possible after your accident injury, call an experienced Alexandria personal injury lawyer. Louisiana law stipulates a one-year statute of limitations, or time limit on bringing a case. If you don’t file a lawsuit within a year of being injured, your case might not be heard at all.
At the scene of the accident, collect the other party’s insurance information and name(s) for your records. You’ll also want to begin the process of filing an insurance claim. However, don’t talk further to the other party, or accept a settlement from your insurance right away.
Your insurance company is in the business of making money over anything else, including your well-being. They’ll probably try to offer you a quick settlement, but that first offer will be far lower than you can likely receive with a lawyer’s help.
You need much more than the minimum offered amount to account for the injuries you’ve suffered, and the continued hardship you’re experiencing. At Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys, we consider our clients family—and we’re so committed to your case, we won’t charge you a dime until we win. That’s the G Guarantee.
