Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Insurance companies are notorious for requesting statements while patients are under the influence of painkillers or in the midst of a stressful situation. This information, obtained when you are not in a clear state of mind, often results in low settlement offers and delayed payments. After your motor vehicle accident, you may have experienced these deceptive tactics. We recommend that you consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer before speaking to the insurance agents. Our Baton Rouge injury lawyers protect your best interests as we strategically negotiate for the compensation you are entitled to.
