Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

A personal injury can cause you multiple hardships all at the same time:

  • Your growing medical bills and lost wages can lead to financial instability
  • Your injuries could cause you to lose your ability to work for weeks, months, or even years
  • You could lose your ability to move freely or require the assistance of wheelchairs or other devices
  • Your injuries can lead to a decline in your mental and physical health

Your injuries’ costs extend far beyond your medical bills and the replacement costs of your property. You also deserve compensation for how your injuries have affected your mind, body, and spirit. If you’ve been injured badly enough to miss work, you deserve payment for your lost wages, as well as the wages you would’ve earned in the future had you not been injured.

You may think that your insurance company will take care of all of those worries for you—but you’d be wrong. Sadly, insurance companies don’t actually care about your needs, but rather about their bottom lines. They might offer you a settlement quickly, but that will usually be the lowest amount they’re legally required to pay. It’ll do little to help you actually heal from your injuries, and we’re here for you no matter how long it takes to settle your claim.

If you need more than the bare minimum, call the experienced Zachary injury lawyers at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys. We understand the hidden and ongoing costs of your injuries, and we’re dedicated to helping our clients file the necessary paperwork, negotiate their settlements, and win their cases.

When to Call a Zachary Personal Injury Lawyer

There are likely many people you might want to call first after you are hurt in an accident, but one of the first should be a trustworthy Zachary personal injury attorney. Cases like these can take a very long time to come to a conclusion, and depending on the severity of the accident and injuries, can be very complicated.

For these reasons and more, it is smart to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. They will need time to gather evidence and interview witnesses, compile a convincing case, and to file the appropriate paperwork. Add to this the time limit in the statute of limitations, which is just 1 year for personal injury claims in Louisiana, and it is clear that the more time your attorney has to prepare, the better the chances will be that you get the compensation you rightly deserve.

Don’t let these short filing windows and overly-complicated legal procedures keep you from pursuing restitution for your injuries. The team at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys has dealt extensively with the legal community in Zachary, and we know exactly how things work within it. After you call 911 and call your insurance to make a claim, call Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys at 225.888.8888.
