03 May Why Hire a Lawyer for Auto Accident Claims
Auto accidents are becoming increasingly common in and across the US. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were nearly 6.3 million accidents countrywide. Meanwhile, the statistics compiled by Louisiana State University showed that there were nearly 78,700 auto accidents in 2015.
Needless to say, auto accident injuries are severe and may require costly surgeries and extended recovery time, thereby adversely impacting the affected person’s quality of life and daily routine.
The ongoing medical expenses can cripple you financially unless you seek legal representation and file for an auto accident claim. It is advisable to hire an experienced lawyer like Chris J. Roy for case representation. This is because getting fair and full compensation for the injuries incurred in an auto accident is not as easy as it may seem.
However, if you have a lawyer by your side, things can become a lot easier. Here’s how:
Thorough Case Investigation for Evidence Collection
Laws governing auto accidents are complex in Louisiana. You need to prove your claim by providing solid evidence against the defendant. And this is what our lawyer does for you. We will visit the accident scene with a team of experts like rules compliance and safety expert, mechanics engineers, crash reconstruction specialists, and life treatment planners. We’ll collect all crucial evidence like the police crash report, information from the black box and medical records. Once collected, we will analyze them in detail to determine the answers to questions that matter like:
- What caused the auto accident?
- Who was responsible for it?
- How much compensation do you deserve to gain financial security?
Go Through Insurance Policies

We will complete all the paperwork for you and file a claim in a timely manner. As we handle all aspects of the case, you can focus on your healing and recovering with zero stress and complete peace of mind.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
It’s important to understand that the purpose of insurance companies is the victim’s liability. So, they are likely to reach out to you for settlement. We would advise you not to interact with or sign any paperwork provided by the insurance adjuster as they may manipulate it and use it against you to limit your claim.
Our attorney understands all the stealthy tactics of insurance companies and knows exactly how to handle and deal with them. We will negotiate aggressively with the insurance company to get you a fair settlement. If they fail to agree, then we’ll file a lawsuit and take the case for trial.
