You Can Win Compensation For Your Medical Treatment
Rollover accidents can lead to severe injuries when rollover crash victims are ejected from a vehicle or thrown against or crushed inside the vehicle. They can suffer lacerations, broken bones, head injuries, and injuries to the chest, back, neck, and spine.
All of these are serious injuries that could require tens of thousands of dollars in medical care. Our rollover accident lawyers serving Houma can help you seek compensation for your injuries and medical expenses for:

Other Damages You Could Recover
Medical bills are only part of the financial impact an accident can have. Our lawyers can help you pursue awards to pay for your lost wages, vehicle and personal property damages, and future earning capacity loss. You may be entitled to damages for your physical pain and emotional suffering if your accident resulted in:
- Permanent injury
- Loss of limb or bodily function
- Severe scarring or disfigurement
These injuries can lead to chronic pain, depression, loss of enjoyment of life, anxiety, sleep disorders, and a host of other issues. Pain and suffering damages attempt to compensate for these reductions to your overall quality of life.
Let Us Handle the Insurance Companies For You
Car accident cases often start with an insurance claim. Louisiana is an at-fault insurance state, meaning you can seek a settlement from the driver responsible for your rollover accident. According to the Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI), the law requires motorists to carry liability insurance to pay for bodily injuries and property damages they cause.
Insurance companies are out to make a profit and want to keep claims payouts to a minimum. Some insurers may try to pressure you into accepting a lower settlement than you deserve, attempt to blame you for the accident, move slowly when it comes to handling your claims, or saddle you with paperwork and deadlines.
Do not let the insurance companies intimidate or bully you. Our lawyers can handle every aspect of your claim, from proving the other driver was at fault to ensuring settlement offers you receive are as fair and advantageous as possible.
Our lawyers will look at the details of your crash and determine if vehicle or roadway issues contributed to your accident. We can help you with a claim against an automobile or auto parts manufacturer or with the entity responsible for the roadway.
Sometimes, rollovers happen when vehicles collide, or a driver is forced to make a defensive maneuver because of another motorist. If another driver was speeding, driving in the wrong lane, or committing another offense that led to your accident, we can help you hold them accountable.
The Statute of Limitations
You should reach out to an accident attorney as soon as you can. Insurance claims can take time. Our team will make every attempt to settle your claim, but we may need to help you take action in civil court.
You have one year from the time you were injured to file a personal injury lawsuit, per CC §3492. If you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a family member, CC §2315.2 allows one year from the time of their death. If the statute of limitations has passed, you may not be able to pursue your case.
