Personal Injury

 

       "Personal Injury" encompasses a wide range of accidents of which you may be entitled to compensation. Examples of accidents which are included in "Personal Injury" include dog bites, premises liability (slip and fall), construction accidents, swimming pool accidents, and all motor vehicle accidents are technically considered Personal Injury. I am always happy to provide consultations and can meet at offices in New Orleans, Metairie or Baton Rouge, or at your home if necessary.

Here are some of the important things you should do after an accident:
 

  • Seek medical attention before doing anything else.
     

  • Call the police in appropriate cases. Make sure you request a police report and get an item number.
     

  • Cooperate with all law enforcement and emergency personnel who respond to the scene.
     

  • Take the time to get the license plate numbers of all other vehicles involved in car accidents and the drivers’ names, addresses, telephone numbers, and insurance information.
     

  • Gather relevant information, including the name and address of the animal’s owner and any license information if you were injured by an animal bite or attack.
     

  • Write down the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all potential witnesses to an accident.
     

  • Take photographs of all of the following, as applicable, as soon as possible after the accident, including the scene of the accident, your injuries and any property damage.
     

  • Contact an experienced attorney.

       
 Here are some things to avoid after an accident: 

 

  • Don’t move your vehicle after an automobile accident unless necessary for safety or required by law.
     

  • Don’t subject yourself to further injury by standing or waiting in an area of traffic or other safety hazards.
     

  • Don’t leave the scene of an accident until the police tell you it is okay to do so.
     

  • Don’t throw away any potential evidence in the case, such as defective products, or torn or blood-stained clothing.
     

  • Don’t engage in discussions as to fault with anyone, and make sure you don’t apologize for anything—it can be considered evidence that you were legally at fault.
     

  • Don’t agree to settlement terms without contacting your attorney
