Strong Legal Representation After A Car Accident

Obtaining compensation for injuries and other costs after a car accident is complicated by the fact that insurance companies make a business of reducing or completely denying personal injury claims. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, you need a serious lawyer on your side to hold the negligent party and the insurance company accountable.

At The Law Office of John J. Finckbeiner, we are serious about helping car accident victims obtain the compensation they need and deserve. For a free consultation to discuss your case, contact us today. We have offices in the French Quarter in New Orleans and in Chalmette.

Determining Liability After A Crash

Proving negligence after being injured in a car crash can be a complex matter, even when it seems obvious that the other driver was at fault. In any case, liability for your injuries needs to be determined in order for you to receive full compensation.

In a car accident, fault may lie directly with the other driver, or if the driver was on the job at the time of the crash, the driver's employer may be liable. In other cases, defective auto parts such as tires or airbags may be an issue.

Driver negligence takes many forms, including drunk driving, speeding, failure to stop, failure to yield, distracted driving and truck driver fatigue. Our law firm has the knowledge and resources to investigate your specific situation and diligently seek the maximum in compensation for your injuries. That means we deal with all potentially liable parties, including the insurance company, while you focus on healing.

Important To Get Medical Treatment

Often injury victims are reluctant to visit a doctor after a crash because they fear they can't afford the treatment. However, if you wait to get your injuries treated, the insurance company may claim that your injuries are not as severe as they truly are.

If you are uncertain about where or how to get medical treatment after a car wreck, we can help you get the treatment you need. Additionally, the extent of your injuries is more easily proven when there is medical evidence from a doctor, hospital or other health care provider.

In any case, we can fight on your behalf to protect your rights and help you obtain compensation for any of the following:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Emotional distress
  • Rehabilitation
  • Property damage
