Why Work With a New Orleans Personal Injury Attorney?
Many people who have been in a motorcycle or pedestrian accident in New Orleans or any kind of accident assume their insurance will take care of it. Unfortunately, insurance alone is not always the answer. Your insurance policy may not cover a specific claim or your claim may be denied. There is no guarantee the money you get from your insurance company will fully cover the costs of your injuries and damages.
A New Orleans attorney at Irpino, Avin & Hawkins Law Firm can review what has happened and can tell you the likely total cost of your injuries over the long term. They can negotiate with your insurance company or they can help you file a legal claim.
Keep in mind the cost of a serious injury may be higher than you expect. If you have been in a truck accident, for example, you may have to pay for physical therapy, hospital stays, surgeries, medication, braces, crutches, a wheelchair, taxis to get around as you heal, nurses or other caretakers at home, a ramp for your property, and more. If your car was severely damaged, you may need to pay for repairs or even a replacement for your vehicle. You may have to miss months of work, meaning you will be earning less. If your injuries are permanent, you may not be able to work at your job again, and you will need to ensure financial security for the future.
