Car Accident Attorney in St. Bernard Parish
We Can Assist You When Recovering From Your Injuries
An automobile accident can turn your world upside down, even more so if
you are seriously injured. A
personal injury claim is not something that should be taken lightly and, in most instances,
you should not handle on your own. Insurance companies historically will
offer a payout, which is usually extremely low, and in return ask that
you sign a form releasing them of any further liability. This is generally
a mistake because the insurance company is taking advantage of a situation
in which you are stressed, hurt and worried and will offer you an amount
that is grossly under what you deserve.

Legal claims arising from motor vehicle accidents are typically governed
by the law of negligence. Failure to use reasonable care is considered
negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required
to pay for any damages, either to a person or property, caused by their
negligence. The injured party (known as the plaintiff) is required to
prove that the defendant was negligent, that the negligence was a probable
cause of the accident, and the accident caused the plaintiff's injuries
