If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident, the best way to describe the accident is to calmly recall as many details as possible. It might be helpful to write your description down and share it with one of our team members. Try to remember as many details as you can about the lead-up to the collision including the other involved vehicle’s actions.
When you decide to pursue the at-fault driver for compensation, we guide you through the best way to describe your car accident while listening for critical details that help us prove the at-fault driver was negligent. Proving their negligence also proves you are entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.
Evidence That Supports Your Description
When we handle your case, our team collects evidence that proves your right to compensation. After listening to your version of events, we collect the following corresponding evidence that proves the at-fault driver’s negligence and liability:
- The car accident report: Identifies the cause of the accident and the at-fault driver’s condition at the time of the collision
- Medical records: Document your injuries and their cause and location
- Photos and videos: Reveal the damage to both vehicles and where each was impacted
- Witness statements: Share objective observations and opinions on what happened immediately prior to the collision
The receipts and estimates for your vehicle’s damage or replacement can also help prove the cause of the accident and its extent.
Recover These Economic and Non-Economic Damages
Once we prove the fault for the accident was not yours, we prove the accident’s costs. As part of your compensation request, you are entitled to the following types of recoverable damages:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future loss of income
- Future lost earning capacity
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Physical impairment or disfigurement
- Mental and emotional pain and suffering
The evidence we collect to prove these damages include medical bills, medication lists, employment records, car repair estimates, and car replacement costs. We compile all your evidence into a comprehensive and well-organized case file and submit it to the at-fault driver’s legal or insurance representative.
Do Not Wait to Request Your Damages
In Louisiana, the personal injury statute of limitations is generally one year, according to CC Art. 3492. The wrongful death statute of limitations is also generally one year, according to CC Art. 2315.2.
Filing your lawsuit on time is mandatory, so our team will explain the relevant statute of limitations and any factors that may alter it. When we get involved in your case sooner rather than later, we also have the opportunity to interview witnesses while their memories are vivid and to canvas the accident scene for smartphone photos and videos or residential and commercial surveillance video.
