Specialists in Auto Accidents
No one hopes to be involved in a car accident, but accidents do happen. You may be a reasonable and safe driver, but you can’t account for all the other drivers on the road with you at all times.
Things such as vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, driver distraction (texting or talking on a cell phone while driving), and driver impairment (drunk driving) are all factors that can lead to car accidents.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly three million people are injured in car, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents each year. Experienced legal representation from a Lake Charles car accident lawyer is crucial to ensuring victims are sufficiently compensated for injuries suffered in an automobile accident.
You may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries, regardless of the circumstances that caused the other driver’s behavior. When auto accidents are caused by another person’s negligence, personal injury victims are entitled to financial compensation for medical bills and other expenses. It is imperative that you consult with a car accident lawyer immediately following an accident.
The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess has a convenient Lake Charles office with experienced attorneys who will look after you and your legal interests. It might be tempting to take a settlement from an insurance company right away, but do you really know how much an accident is worth or if you will have related medical bills further down the line? Working attorney will have both the experience and the context to know what the maximums and the minimums are for your type of case.
