Need an experienced car accident lawyer in Louisiana?
The Clayton Law Firm, located in Slidell, Louisiana is experienced in handling automobile accident cases and can help you earn full and fair compensation for your injuries.
Unfortunately, the convenience and usefulness of cars, trucks and other motor vehicles involves the risk that someone will be injured through that use.
Louisiana requires that every licensed operator of a motor vehicle must have liability insurance with certain minimum coverage limits. Some drivers, however, disobey the law and do not have that coverage.
You may have been involved in a vehicular collision with an uninsured driver. In that situation, if your insurance policy has “UM” coverage, you may still be able to receive fair and adequate compensation for your personal injury. “UM” coverage provides for the situation in which the driver causing the accident is either totally uninsured or instead under-insured. The term “underinsured” means that the insurance coverage of the driver responsible for causing the accident and injury does not have adequate coverage limits to compensate you fully and fairly.
Loss of Wages Due to Your Injury
You may have experienced loss of wages because of the injury. Certainly there is medical, chiropractic or other health care expense resulting from the injury. The law also provides for payment of monetary damages on account of “pain and suffering” and “loss of enjoyment of life” resulting from the vehicular injury. At the Clayton Law Firm, we can thoroughly review analyze your claim and determine the types of monetary damages and their amounts that you are legally entitled to.
Legal Representation After a Motor Vehicle Accident
Even if the responsible party has insurance coverage and that coverage is adequate to fairly compensate you, their insurer, attorneys and claims adjusters frequently will try to deny you the just compensation that you deserve. In that situation, an experienced and capable attorney who is skilled in handling personal injury claims involving vehicular collisions is indispensable.
The Clayton Law Firm has years of experience in handling car accident injury claims in the courts of our state. We have tried jury and non-jury (judge) cases in various courts and can provide the legal representation that you need.
