Whoops! How to File a Personal Injury Claim December 31, 2017

personal injury

By far, the largest number of personal injury claims involve car, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Coming in second would be premises liability injuries when somebody is injured by a dangerously defective condition on real estate that’s owned or occupied by somebody else.

The overwhelming majority of personal injury cases are settled out of court. Don’t expect the insurer of the person or entity that was responsible for your injuries to come to you with any type of a reasonable settlement offer. You must take the case to them, and you must do that with aggressive liability and damages claims. That’s why you’ll want to speak with a Louisiana personal injury attorney.

If you try to make a personal injury claim on your own, the opposing insurance company is going to treat you with utter disdain. Being unexperienced at personal injury claims can put you at a disadvantage. When working with these types of claims, there are multiple steps and deadlines that can be hard to keep track of. Mistakes can easily be made without your knowledge and can be frustrating to deal with if they do. At Morrow Gates & Morrow, our attorneys don’t make mistakes.
