If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation from the other driver. Regardless of the path your case takes, if it is ultimately successful, you could receive financial recovery for your medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and emotional anguish.
Even if you believe that you might have been partly responsible for the accident, you could still be eligible for full or partial compensation under Louisiana law. A lawyer from our firm who handles car accident cases in Andrew can investigate your accident, determine where the fault lies, and help you collect a monetary award. When you speak with a member of our team, you’ll receive a free case evaluation.
You May Be Entitled to Compensation for Various Losses
When you work with the team at Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, you can count on having an attorney and legal staff that go the extra mile for you. One of our first orders of business when we take on your case will be calculating the cost of the damages for which you may be entitled.
In Louisiana, you can pursue the responsible party (or parties) not only for your economic losses – items like medical bills and lost wages – but also for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Your car accident settlement or award in Andrew may include compensation for the following and more:
Current and Future Medical Bills
We can use the figures offered by your medical bills to calculate the cost of your treatment. We can also consult with a medical professional to determine what costs you may incur in the future. The party who caused your accident should pay the costs of treating your injuries.
Depending on the severity of the accident, you may have suffered impairments to your mobility or free range of motion. To regain your abilities, you may have had to go to physical therapy. Our legal team can calculate the cost of physical therapy, as well as any assistive devices you may need (e.g., wheelchair, crutches, electric lifts, etc.).
We can help you recover every dollar you have lost while missing work to recover from your injuries. Our team can use your pay stubs to determine how much time from work you missed and assign value accordingly.
Diminished Earning Capacity
Your injuries may have prevented you from maintaining employment in your current position or field of work. If this is the case, our legal team can compare how much you were able to make before with how much you can make now. If there is a significant difference, we can factor this element into your claim.
Pain and Suffering
We fight for a full slate of non-economic damages, starting with pain and suffering. This refers to your day-to-day struggles while recovering from your injuries. Non-economic damages are not as easy to calculate, since they reflect the physical and emotional toll the accident has taken on you. Our team knows what it takes to determine an accurate value for car accident damages and can help you seek the compensation you need to move forward.
If someone you love lost their life in a car accident, we can pursue the at-fault driver in a wrongful death lawsuit. You may be able to recover damages like funeral costs, burial expenses, and loss of the decedent’s expected future income.

Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Cases in Andrew
It is important to note that there is a time limit on how long you have to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit in Louisiana. The statute of limitations for car accident cases is one year from the date of the accident, according to CC Art. 3492. The statutory deadline is the same for a wrongful death case, per CC Art. 2315.2. As such, a lawsuit must be filed with the court within one year of the decedent’s passing.
A lawyer from our firm familiar with car accident cases in Andrew can ensure you do not miss the deadline to file your case. If you do, you could lose your opportunity to seek compensation from the at-fault driver.

We Help You No Matter How Your Accident Occurred
The car accident lawyers at Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers can help you no matter the circumstances of your accident. Again, even if you were told that you were partially responsible for the collision, you are not barred from seeking compensation for your losses.
We can help you recover damages for:
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- Side-impact collisions
- Drunk driving accidents
- Distracted driving accidents
- One-car accidents
How your collision occurred will play a role in determining liability. For example, if you were injured in a rear-end collision, fault usually rests on the driver who struck you. Our legal team can use the police report, expert testimony, and witness statements to determine the cause of the crash.
The Cost of Our Legal Representation
We understand that right now, you are likely facing a variety of financial stressors on top of the physical and emotional pain you might be suffering. With the help of our team, you can hold the responsible party or parties legally accountable for your accident and resulting injuries.
We handle everything on the legal side, all on a contingency-fee basis so that you can focus on recovering and getting your life back. That means you pay nothing out-of-pocket unless and until we win a settlement on your behalf. Our fee will come out of a percentage of the settlement that we agree upon before we get started on your case.
