Have you been injured in a Baton Rouge car wreck or big rig wreck? If so, you likely have auto repair and medical bills piling up, lost wages and a lot of stress. Add to that the fact that the insurance companies are probably ringing your phone off the hook wanting you to make an official statement. It's no wonder that it can be confusing to know what to do when you’re injured in a car accident.
Every year, Baton Rouge drivers are in thousands of car accidents - from minor fender benders to the serious injury auto wrecks and big rig accidents that personal injury attorneys like myself represent. Some Louisiana drivers think that the severity of the accident warrants their actions, and that if there’s just a few scratches or dings on their car, the only thing they need to do is exchange contact information with the other driver and report the auto wreck to their auto insurance company. Other Louisiana drivers think if they’re feeling pain after a car wreck, but think they can suffer through it, there’s no need to see a doctor immediately. As an experienced Baton Rouge personal injury attorney, I’m here to tell you that both of these assumptions are wrong.
