While most of us take care when driving, auto collisions can still happen. Many assume that insurance companies will take care of everything after an accident. However, due to Louisiana’s auto insurance laws, you will need to prove that the other driver caused the accident to recover financial damages for your injuries and other related losses.
Problems arise when drivers or insurance companies dispute fault, resulting in legitimate claims being delayed, undervalued, or unfairly denied. After an accident, you should be able to focus on making a good recovery without worrying about paying medical costs and meeting other financial obligations. So, if you are injured and unsure about what to do, our Forest Hill car accident lawyer will review your claim for free and help you understand your legal options.
We Make Compensation Claims as Simple and Stress-Free as Possible
Dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can be expensive and frustrating. We are here to support and guide you through the legal process while managing the more complex aspects of your case.

- Investigating the cause of the accident to identify liable parties
- Gathering and organizing the evidence required to prove the other driver’s negligence
- Assessing the full extent of your financial damages
- Managing all communications with the at-fault party or their insurance company
- Negotiating for an appropriate settlement that will meet your current and future needs
- Reviewing settlement offers from the at-fault party
- Representing you in court when required
Aside from managing the more complex aspects of your case, we also take care of the day-to-day things.

We Fight for the Compensation You Deserve
Everyone we represent is unique, and no two accidents are the same. We take the time to ensure we understand exactly what you have been through and how your injuries have affected your home and work life. This way, we can evaluate your current and ongoing financial damages with the confidence that comes from many years of prior experience helping people with their personal injury cases.
Whatever your circumstances, our Forest Hill car accident lawyer will fight to help you recover the compensation that is right for your situation, which could include the following types of financial damages:
- Lost wages and other work-related benefits, such as pensions
- Future compensation if your injuries prevent you from returning to work or affect your ability to work
- Medical bills, treatment costs, and rehabilitation costs
- Reimbursement for specialist equipment, home care, or adaptations to your home or vehicle as part of your ongoing care needs
- Pain and suffering damages for physical and emotional symptoms resulting from the accident
- Lost or damaged property
In fatal accidents, we represent surviving families in wrongful death actions. While no amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one, it can provide a vital financial safety net to help families pay for medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and loss of financial support.
We know this is an incredibly difficult time for you, and we are here to lend our strength and support by managing everything you need for the legal process.

We Only Recover Our Fees When We Obtain a Favorable Result
The financial toll of a car accident can significantly affect you and your family, so we cover the cost of building and pursuing your case. We will never ask you to pay anything up front and only recover our fees when we obtain a settlement or court verdict in your favor. This is known as a contingency fee arrangement and another way we strive to make things a little easier for you.
The reassurance from Digger and his staff gave me that renewed hope that it’s going to be okay down the road.Client
Your Needs and Well-Being Are Our Top Priority
At Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, ensuring your needs are met and representing your best interests is our top priority. For example, you may receive an early settlement offer from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. While this may seem like a positive and prompt resolution to your case, the amount may not be enough to cover all of your financial damages. Insurance companies rarely begin settlement negotiations with their best offer.
Let us put our knowledge of the law and previous experience to work for you to ensure you get an appropriate settlement that covers your current needs as well as your ongoing needs in the future.
They treated us like no other people would. Whenever we needed something they were there for us. I put my trust in them and I don’t regret it.Client
There Is Limited Time to Make a Personal Injury Claim
Under Louisiana law, injured parties generally have one year from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death action (per CC Art. 3492 and CC Art. 2315.2, respectively). Seeking legal advice sooner rather than later can be beneficial. Early intervention also means your lawyer can get to work quickly and gather and preserve vital evidence to support your case before it is lost, forgotten, or destroyed.
