At the Charbonnet Law Firm, our attorneys advise and represent local and out-of-state clients in Louisiana car accident litigation. To learn how our experience with the settlement and trial of accident claims of all kinds can benefit you and your family, contact one of our New Orleans car accident attorneys in Metairie or New Orleans for a free consultation.
Our practical and flexible approach to auto accident claims means that our strategy will depend on what our investigation tells us. We examine the accident scene, interview witnesses, analyze police reports, and inspect the vehicle before committing to a particular course of action. In many cases, our early investigation will identify additional defendants or insurance coverage options you might never have known about otherwise.
As we thoroughly examine the liability and causation aspects of your car accident case, we work closely with you to make sure that you’re getting the medical treatment you need to recover from your injuries. Certain injuries, such as closed head trauma, soft tissue tears, or internal organ damage are notoriously easy to miss in the emergency room. It might be weeks before you become aware of any injuries besides those initially treated. We know how to look for signs of such injuries from the very beginning of the case.
By treating every case as if it were headed to a jury, we make sure that every aspect of your car accident claim, from property damage to projected medical expenses, is fully documented. Our New Orleans and Metairie auto accident lawyers present your damages demand in settlement negotiations in much the same form and with a similar level of detail that we would give to a jury. In case after case, this approach has led to prompt settlements in fair amounts. Showing the strength of your case long before trial is an excellent way to avoid the uncertainty of extended litigation.
Our experience with car accident claims of many different kinds also allows us to provide effective client service in such situations as drunk driving accidents, hit and run accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, and claims against underinsured drivers.
