Personal Injury Lawyer in St. Bernard Parish
Comparative Fault in Personal Injury Claims
personal injury claims in a different manner than many other states. When you are involved in a
truck accident, the damages you recover will depend upon the amount of responsibility
you are apportioned in the accident. This is known as "comparative
fault." If another attorney or an insurance company can successfully
show that you were at least partially to blame in the accident, the compensation
you will receive will be reduced. In many cases, the amount in a settlement
offer can be inadequate for the medical bills, property damage, loss of
income, and pain and suffering in your case.
There are many tactics that could be used by an insurance company to pay
out less. That is their job and many are quite proficient at it. It is
extremely important that you have legal representation to protect you
before you engage in discussions or negotiations with the insurance company,
or allow access to your medical records. A determined St. Bernard Parish
