Picking the Right Auto Accident Attorney

Posted on June 11, 2014 · Posted in News

Hundreds of thousands of car accidents occur in Louisiana each year, and thousands of those crashes result in serious injuries. Out of the current 50,751 car accidents in Louisiana, over 14,000 have resulted in personal injuries. Many of those accidents were very serious, and people who got hurt had severe, even life-changing, injuries.

Most of the time, hiring a New Orleans personal injury attorney for severe injuries from a car accident is essential. The insurance companies may not give you the adequate amount for your costs, leaving you not only with injuries but loads of bills ranging from medical to vehicular. Listed below is what you should consider when deciding to hire a personal injury attorney in Louisiana.

Picking the Right Personal Injury Lawyer

  • How long has the attorney practiced law?

    You want to ensure that the attorney you hire is well-versed in vehicular law and is aggressive in your case and compassionate with your injuries and pain. Many personal injury lawyers are just out to settle a case, but Michael  Hingle & Associates will not only be your friend, not just a lawyer.

  • How often does the attorney practice personal injury law?

    Experience is key – an inexperienced attorney will not know how to litigate and argue on your behalf.

  • What kind of injuries have you sustained?

    Minor injuries in car accidents usually do not require a lawyer, but they can also be factors in emotional pain and trauma. Severe injuries in car accidents, however, are usually life-long effects that affect your day-to-day life.

  • Are you in a dispute of fault with the other driver?

    If you are in a dispute with the other driver over who was at fault, then hiring a personal injury attorney will help you lessen the stress of the situation. Michael Hingle & Associates can prove that the other party was negligent, and that your injuries resulted in accumulated(ing) medical bills, pain, suffering and a loss of income.

  • Has your insurance company pressured you into a quick settlement?

    If your insurance company is pressuring you into a quick settlement after your car accident, you should hire a personal injury attorney. Most insurance companies do not give the full amount for your injuries, which will affect the way you live your life after the accident. Michael Hingle & Associates will ensure that you get the full, fair compensation you deserve after your car accident.
