Car Accident Claim Basics

An accident can change your entire life. Sometimes temporarily—sometimes permanently. Accidents can leave you with the heavy burden of medical bills and lost wages. You may find yourself unable to work and care for your family. The financial consequences can be devastating.

An injury can prevent you from going about your normal daily life. Everything from grocery shopping to playing with your children can be painful. All of this is especially frustrating when your injury is not your fault. Insurance companies hire a multitude of lawyers to delay and frustrate the process hoping to diminish or completely defeat your claim. It is frustrating to handle on your own.

TAKE PHOTOS. TAKE PHOTOS. AND THEN, TAKE MORE PHOTOS!

Photographs can be the most powerful evidence to prove your case. Details of an accident often turn into a blur. But, one thing will always remain clear: the insurance company and its army of lawyers will attempt to blame you for the accident and you will need every bit of evidence to defeat them.

Fortunately, everyone has an excellent way to fight back and prove their case -- your cell phone camera!  Cell phones have terrific cameras. Take lots (I mean lots) of photos. Take photos of all vehicles involved, the accident scene, vehicle damage, your visible injuries, and other drivers.

Why Are Car Accident Photos Important?

  • They tell the story of how the accident happened. The Insurance Company is not going to take your word as truthful. But, photos tell the story they have to accept.
  • Photos provide clear and graphic proof of vehicle damage and your injuries.
  • Photos jog memories to reconstruct the accident scene for depositions and trial which can be years after the accident.
  • Pictures of stitches, bruising, swelling, and you in a hospital bed can be very powerful.

Remember, you have the burden of proving your case. Photos reveal both obvious and subtle evidence that will lend strong support to prove your personal injury claim.

What Do I Photograph?

  • Photograph all vehicles and the entire accident scene.
  • Photograph your injuries and injuries to other drivers, passengers, and bystanders.
  • Use Cell Phone Video to record the other driver. People often honestly admit their fault at the scene but change their story later.
  • Video all passengers and any witnesses to get their statements and names.
  • Get close-ups of your car’s damage and damage to other cars.
  • Photograph the license plate to identify the other driver’s car.
  • Take photos of traffic lights and traffic signs.
  • Photograph skid marks.

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE TO FILE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT?

One year in Louisiana. We are 1 of only 3 states with this short, one-year period. Most states allow 3-6 years. Why longer? Longer periods wisely allow time for out-of-court settlements. It decreases the lawsuits clogging our courts.

What does Louisiana’s short, one-year period mean for you? Unfortunately, it forces many people into filing a lawsuit. It also means you had better hire a lawyer who tries cases and is comfortable in the courtroom.

CAN MY CHOICE OF LAWYER HURT THE VALUE OF MY CASE?

Absolutely, positively, YES!! Your case value depends heavily on your lawyer’s reputation with insurance companies. Insurance companies keep track of lawyers nationwide. They know which lawyers settle quickly, cheaply, and never go to trial. Insurance companies regularly low-ball cases handled by these lawyers because they know the lawyer won’t go to trial and will take the lowball offers.

Insurance companies also know which lawyers will take them to trial when they make a lowball settlement offer.  These lawyers get great settlements for their clients.

The right car crash lawyer will make all the difference in your case and the amount you recover.

Before you hire a lawyer, ask how many cases he tried before a jury. Ask if his practice is 100% devoted to personal injury. Or, does he practice a hodge-podge of family, criminal, and injury law? Many lawyers avoid answering these questions. Often because they quickly settle and avoid trial at all costs.

Herrin Kervin will settle your case only when the insurance company offers an amount that appropriately compensates you. If not, we will take your case to trial so that a jury decides the best value of your case, not a self-serving, profit driven insurance company.
