New Orleans is a popular place for culture and tourism. Many areas around the city are easier to walk around rather than drive. You might have chosen to walk because it is a quick way to visit shops and restaurants, or for another reason—walking is your right. However, what happens when a fun time in the city turns into an unfortunate accident on the road?
A pedestrian accident can cause severe damages and injuries that may significantly disrupt your life. If a vehicle struck you while you were walking, a New Orleans pedestrian accident lawyer from our team can help you fight for compensation. You can speak with Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers today about your accident.
Our Lawyers Can Help You Identify Negligent Parties
Determining negligence is not always as easy as it seems. Your case may get complicated if the other party claims you were partially responsible for your accident. According to CC §2323, if you are deemed partially at fault for an accident, your compensation may be reduced.
Our New Orleans-based office wants to help you refute such accusations and fight for fair compensation. We can help you by:
- Evaluating your case at no charge: You can quickly and easily find out if your case is worth pursuing.
- Supporting your case with evidence that shows how the other party was at fault for your accident: For example, we might be able to obtain surveillance footage that captured the accident.
- Taking over the communications with other lawyers and insurance companies: You do not have to carry that burden.
- Supporting you throughout the litigation process: We will advise you of your options and update you about your case.
- Negotiating with the insurance company for a fair settlement: We can also go to trial if your circumstances require it.
- Managing your case while you focus on your recovery: You do not have to concern yourself with filing paperwork, meeting deadlines, or making important legal decisions on your own.
