When you are injured due to someone’s negligence, you may expect that someone’s insurance company to negotiate with you in good faith. In reality, a third party’s insurance company owes no duty to be reasonable with you under the law. In many cases, the threat of a lawsuit against the insurer and insured is the only way to make the insurance company treat you fairly. Personal injury damages can include general damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity, past medical bills, and future expected medical bills.

David has worked on a variety of personal injury cases over the years, with an emphasis on car and trucking accidents. Visiting with an attorney soon after you are injured can help you identify potential sources of recovery and get your claim started on the right track.

Car accidents are the most common kind of personal injury case in Louisiana. In addition to third party insurance claims, an attorney can make sure you receive all you are entitled to receive from your Underinsured Motorist/Uninsured Motorist policy issued by your own insurer.

Trucking accidents are often more complicated than car accidents due to the damages sometimes involved, the complexity of injuries involved, and the amount of insurance at issue. Commercial drivers carry larger insurance policies, but they also have more resources to fight claims. An experienced attorney can collect the evidence available, including driver records, logs, and photographs.
