A car accident can change your life in the blink of an eye, and the result can be devastating, with far-reaching consequences on your family life and future. While some people can walk away unharmed after such an event, others are left with life-changing injuries. Such injuries could leave them requiring extensive medical intervention, long term rehabilitation, and long periods of being unable to work.
With bills mounting, lack of income, and terrible pain from injuries, it can seem a most challenging and hopeless time. The thought of seeking compensation is probably not foremost in your mind, and it could be tempting to accept any offer of payment that comes your way.
Unfortunately, this is how many insurance companies benefit—by providing low initial settlements in the hope that victims will accept whatever is offered because they are worried about meeting rising medical costs and have no income at the time of recovery.
A Delcambre car accident lawyer can act on your behalf and take on the legal battle for you while you focus on getting yourself well. If you are interested in finding out more about your legal options for a car accident claim and all of the possible avenues from which you could pursue compensation, contact Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers at (337) 777-7777 today for practical and responsive legal advice.
How a Lawyer Can Help You
We will seek evidence that your accident may have been caused by:
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Poor weather conditions
- Poor road conditions
- Defective car parts
- Mechanical failure
If you are involved in a car accident (and the other motorist is at fault), lawsuits usually fall within the legal remit of negligence. Proving negligence in a claim can be complicated, but a legal representative can help you.
You may want to contact a Delcambre car accident lawyer as soon as you can to investigate the cause of the accident and preserve the evidence required to build a case, especially if you have sustained severe injuries.
Additionally, you may have already received a settlement offer from the insurance company. Unless you know the full extent of your injuries and if there will be any ongoing medical or rehabilitative costs in the future, as it can be hard to tell if the amount offered is fair.
Your lawyer will be able to look in detail at all aspects of your case and be able to inform you if the offer is appropriate for your current and ongoing needs. Furthermore, they will be able to negotiate on your behalf with insurance representatives, ensuring your rights are protected.

What to Need to Know When Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Louisiana is known as a comparative negligence state. This means liability for accidents must be proven, and fault needs to be assigned to those who contributed to an accident. It is a hotly contested area in compensation litigation, or you could see yourself lose out on a fair settlement.
To prove negligence (or who is at-fault) a lawyer can conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident. From this, they can collect and preserve the evidence necessary to prove who is to blame—and to what extent they are to blame—for the auto collision. Additionally, they can provide access to accident reconstruction specialists, and other witnesses who can provide expert testimony to support a claim.
