New Orleans, LA Car Accident Attorneys
Lawyer advertising is just about everywhere these days. Lawyer slogans and television jingles seem to be all around us. But slogans and jingles will not force big insurance companies to pay injured car accident victims the compensation they deserve. The lawyer who you see on TV the most or whose jingle or slogan stays in your head the longest, may not be the best lawyer to fight for you. When choosing an attorney to represent you in a personal injury case, only one thing should matter – RESULTS.
THE STRENGTH OF HHK ON YOUR SIDE
No firm is better equipped than HHK to handle your personal injury claim stemming from a car accident. For over 70 years, our firm has fought for families devastated by personal injury caused by the negligence of others. Our lawyers are proud to have recovered over $35 billion on behalf of our clients.
Unfortunately, these recoveries do not come easy. Insurance companies that put profits ahead of injured accident victims often refuse to pay legitimate personal injury claims. Instead, these insurance companies deny legitimate personal injury claims for as long as possible in hopes that tired families will eventually give up and settle for less than they deserve. Insurance companies attempt to manipulate the system and prolong the process and protect their profits at the expense of personal injury victims. Insurance companies even stoop so low as to attack the integrity of personal injury victims.
CAR ACCIDENT VICTIMS NEED A LOUISIANA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER
People depend on cars everyday. Today it is nearly impossible to get from place to place without a car. Most of us live and work too far apart to travel by foot. As a result, we are exposed to potential personal injury or even wrongful death on a daily basis. Although cars are a modern day convenience that generally make our lives easier and better, they are not always safe. Accidents occur all the time. Car accidents happen for a wide variety of reasons, including drunk drivers, drivers distracted by handheld devices, fatigued drivers, and dangerous roadway conditions. Regardless of how an accident occurred, victims of car accidents often suffer serious personal injuries or even wrongful death.
When you are injured in a car accident that was caused by the negligence of another, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries. If you have been injured in a car accident, you should contact an experienced Louisiana personal injury attorney.
Insurance companies know that too many lawyers avoid trial. As a result, insurance companies undervalue your injuries, knowing that most attorneys will settle for much less than your personal injury claim is actually worth just to avoid having to go to court.
If you were injured in a car accident, you need to work with trial lawyers that have a tradition of fighting powerful insurance companies. Our victories on behalf of our car accident clients are attributed to our dedication, preparation, and innovation. Insurance companies and their lawyers know that every personal injury case we accept will be thoroughly prepared for trial and our clients will be aggressively represented. We will not yield until our clients secure the funds they need to reclaim their lives.
