We will work to pursue all forms of monetary awards that may be owed to you and your loved ones.
A Hammond side-impact collision lawyer from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers will construct a case to preserve your legal rights. Our team will begin by investigating the accident in detail.

From here, we will keep you updated as we interpret the law and communicate with other parties related to your case for you.
Pursuing Recoverable Damages After a Side-Impact Collision
Side-impact collisions are often the result of reckless or negligent driving behavior. In many cases, alcohol intoxication leads to drivers not taking necessary precautions to ensure their vehicle is traveling in the proper direction.
Your lawyer will look at the presence of common reckless driving behaviors as they establish a liable party and determine your eligibility for compensation. Some forms of compensation that you may be entitled to collect include coverage of the following:
- Past and future medical bills
- Emergency medical transportation services
- Assistive medical equipment and devices
- Operations and surgeries
- X-rays and testing
- Prescription medications
- Physical therapy programs
- Rehabilitation programs
- In-home care and medical services
- Psychological pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Loss of the ability to enjoy life
A Hammond side-impact collision lawyer from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers will build a case on your behalf after an accident. Our team is here to collect evidence, negotiate with parties on your behalf, and go after all recoverable damages to which you may be entitled.
When we take you on as a client, you can be confident in the fact that we will take care of all necessary communications with other parties related to your case on your behalf. This means you will not have to worry about speaking with other drivers, insurance agents, law enforcement, or anyone else connected to your case.
Work with a Lawyer from Our Team to Build a Case and pursue justice
Some state, federal, and local laws may impact the timeline and motion of your case after an accident. For example, the statute of limitations put forth in CC §3492 shows you have a limited time to take legal action after suffering a personal injury from an accident in Louisiana.
Failing to get in touch with our legal team within this statute of limitations will leave you with few paths toward a just outcome. A lawyer from our firm will be able to help you, but only if you get in touch with them within the window allowed to you by state laws such as these.
We will Investigate Your Case
Once you have a lawyer working on your case, you can expect them to begin by investigating the incident in detail. No two accidents are identical in their causes or their outcomes. Your legal team will take this fact into account as they comb over the details of the accident.
Some questions we will consider include:
- Were other drivers negligent or reckless in their driving behaviors?
- Did adverse weather or road conditions cause the accident in part?
- Were other parties responsible for an accident due to cell phone use?
It is quite common for insurance companies to get involved in a car accident claim right away. Trying to discuss the details of an accident can be traumatic, difficult, and confusing for victims, especially right after an accident.
When you have a lawyer from our team working on your side, you will not have to worry about fielding questions or speaking with any other parties related to your case. Instead, we will take on these communications for you.
Your legal team will continue to defend you as they negotiate to collect any settlement amounts that you may be owed. Potential forms of compensation vary in their scope, and many factors can impact the outcome of a case. Your lawyer will work to keep you and your loved ones updated as your case progresses in any way.
