Car Accidents

Car accident freewayIn the blink of an eye, a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness can upend your life. It can leave you without an income, buried in medical bills, and struggling with physical and emotional pain. Once you get in an accident, you can make mistakes very quickly and without your knowledge.

You need all the help you can get. 

You need the compensation and resources that can aid your recovery and move you forward. You need guidance and support. What you need is a car accident lawyer who understands the challenges you face and knows how to make your life better during a difficult time.

 

Helping Injured People and Their Families Is Our Life’s Work

At the Parker Layrisson Law Firm, we have made it our life’s work to take care of individuals and families who find themselves reeling after a car accident. We have seen first-hand how hard recovering from car accident injuries can be, and we want to help.

 

Common Injuries

It can be hard to self-diagnose immediately after a collision. Adrenaline kicks in and it can be easy to miss an injury until days or weeks later. This is why we encourage all of our clients to get medical inspections as soon as possible after a collision. Many injuries need to be diagnosed by a doctor, including:

  • Neck strain
  • Nerve damage
  • Brain trauma
  • Spinal injuries
  • Sprained and fractured joints

These injuries often get worse with time, and some never truly heal. With injuries that stay with you for the rest of your life, it’s important that you get the full compensation you deserve.

 

Fighting Greedy Insurance Companies

Insurance companies will try to push you into lowball settlements, giving you less than you deserve. This is adding insult to your injury, and you don’t need to give in.

Parker Layrisson advocates for you when insurance companies try to take advantage of your situation. When you’re alone and faced with a settlement, it can be hard to know you have options. Not knowing what will happen next or where to turn for answers can make things seem even worse.

 

Working With You By Getting to Know You

Your accident was a pivotal moment in your life, and you will respond to it in your own way. 

That is why we take the time needed to get to know you as a person, answer all your questions, and keep you informed throughout your case. We bring you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your car accident lawyer will always be there for you, every day and every step of the way.

The compassion and commitment we bring to the care of our car accident clients are matched by the tenacity and fierce advocacy we bring to the courtroom or negotiating table. We don’t let auto insurance companies take advantage of our clients, and our reputation for being ready to take cases to trial means that insurance companies and defense lawyers know they are in for a fight. That means better results and higher compensation for you.

The proof is in the results: since 2002, Ponchatoula personal injury lawyer and firm founder Parker Layrisson have recovered over $15 million for hundreds of clients injured in car accidents and other incidents.

 

 

We Don’t Get Paid Until You Get Paid

You have enough to deal with after a car accident without worrying about attorney’s fees. That’s why we only get paid if we recover compensation for you. With our personal commitment to you and your family as your car accident lawyers, we use every tool, retain any witness, and attack every part of the defense’s case in our tireless efforts to recover the compensation you need to move forward with your life.

 

Types of Accidents We Cover

Car accidents can happen in a hundred different ways. Not all accidents are cut and dry, which is why we’ll help you determine what damages you can claim for. Some of the accidents we cover are:

  • Hit and run
  • Rear-end
  • T-bone
  • Hit by a distracted driving
  • Hit by a drunk driver
  • Passenger in a car accident

 

Comparative Fault

Louisiana has “pure comparative fault” laws, meaning the amount of compensation you are owed by the person with the primary fault is reduced by how at fault you are. While this means you might not be able to claim as much in damages, it also means that you are still owed compensation.

The lawyers of Parker Layrisson are familiar with comparative fault laws and will help you understand what you are owed. Even if you were partially at fault, you still deserve representation.
