Recovering Damages After a Hammond Neck Injury Accident
The team from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers may be able to recover money damages for our clients by:
- Investigating the collision
- Identifying the at-fault driver
- Filing a claim based on their liability insurance policy
We may be able to negotiate a payout from the insurance carrier by presenting the evidence we gathered to support the claim and the value of their case. If this does not result in productive talks with the insurer, we reserve the right for our client to sue the driver who caused the crash.
In a civil lawsuit, we can take the case to trial and ask a judge and jury to award fair and just compensation.
Compensation May Be Available for Your Expenses and Losses
The money damages recoverable after a traffic accident are usually compensatory damages. They compensate victims for their expenses and losses incurred. This could include:
- Pain and suffering damages
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs related to the neck injury
- Lost income because of time missed at work
- Diminished earning capacity
- Rental car costs
- Vehicle repairs
- Other related expenses
Our team knows how to document your expenses and damages, including difficult-to-prove chronic pain and disability associated with whiplash. We can also document any necessary rehabilitation, therapies, and equipment for partial or complete spinal cord injuries.

Deadlines for Suing the At-Fault Driver Who Caused Your Collision and Injuries
In general, most traffic accident claims settle without going to trial. Often, we do not have to sue the at-fault driver. We may be able to reach an agreement that fairly compensates our clients for their injuries and other damages by negotiating with the insurance carrier representing the driver who caused the crash.
If the insurer does not negotiate with us fairly, it may be necessary to sue the other driver. Per CC §3492, Louisiana law generally gives accident victims up to one year to sue the negligent parties. There may be exceptions to this rule that extend how long you have to act or significantly shorten that time.
This deadline applies to filing the initial paperwork that begins the lawsuit. Settlement negotiations may continue during the initial phases of the legal case.
