What to do After a Baton Rouge Car Accident?
If you have been in an accident, you should consider getting medical help for your personal injuries right away, even if your injuries appear minor. Damage to your head, back or neck may not be apparent right away, and delays could impact your health. Your doctor visits also help document the injuries caused and may be used to support your case later.
After you’ve seen a doctor, you should gather the available details and documentation about your case, from photos of the scene to the police report, and contact us. Every case is unique, and Baton Rouge car accident attorney Ed Kramer can help you determine the best course of action. If the crash was significant, we have licensed private investigators and others that we can call on to help with these details, which are very important to establish your case.
Distracted driving – or texting while driving – is often a common cause of car accidents today. From Big Trucks to small cars, distracted driving is a very significant cause of car accidents. Many Baton Rouge car accident injuries are caused by distracted driving.
How Will InjuredGo.com Help Me?
Before negotiating with the insurance company, attorney Ed Kramer and the InjuredGo.com team will gather evidence regarding your accident.
This may include:
- Reviewing medical records from treatment you received after the crash
- Reviewing police reports, crime scene reports, and photographs of the scene
- Interviewing witnesses
- Using traffic camera footage, if available
- Investigating the history of the other driver
- Obtaining a recording of the 911 call
- Examining photos of your car before and after the accident
- Reviewing cell phone records
- Studying accurate information and history on the vehicles involved
The InjuredGo.com team will use this information to demonstrate that the other driver was at-fault for the accident. This evidence will show that the other driver’s insurance company is therefore responsible for your losses. Insurance companies will want to limit their payout and, in many cases, will offer a moderate amount in settlement. This offer may also lead to a claim of bad faith. If this happens, the InjuredGo.com Law Firm is ready to file a lawsuit on your behalf to recover the full amount of your damages.
Ed Kramer is Not a Typical Baton Rouge Car Accident Attorney Handling Typical Cases
InjuredGo.com is not a “Settlement Mill.” We will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, seeking the maximum allowed under the law. If negotiations are unsuccessful, the InjuredGo.com team will help determine whether filing a lawsuit against the insurance company will help you recover more.
We don’t offer just a ‘quick check’ for less than full value for your case. In those cases, minimal lawyer work is required, and many times, the client’s case is not fully examined. These types of cases are most commonly associated with high-volume “Settlement Mill” attorneys. At InjuredGo.com we are not a settlement mill. We would like to help you if you are in a Baton Rouge car accident, or almost anywhere in Louisiana.
Louisiana’s “No-Pay, No-Play” Law
Being the victim of a car accident can require hospitalization, surgery, and post-surgery rehab. A crash can make you miss time from work or damage your car beyond repair. When situations like these occur, you deserve an experienced attorney who can represent your interests fully.
Louisiana Law Requires vehicle owners to purchase protection which, in the event of a crash, will cover the cost of damages to another to a certain extent. This Law is called the Louisiana “No-Pay, No-Play” Law.
The “No-Pay, No Play” law bars uninsured and underinsured drivers from collecting part of their damages. This part of their damages is the first $15,000 of bodily injury damages and the first $25,000 of property damages. In this case, even if the other driver is at fault, an uninsured driver will not be able to recover medical costs up to $15,000. Also, an uninsured driver would lose the first $25,000 in repairs.
However, there are exceptions to this rule so as to allow some uninsured drivers to recover in some cases.
