Do I Have to Go to Court for a Car Accident in New Orleans?

No one ever expects to be involved in a car accident, and when someone else is responsible for causing your crash, you can hold them accountable by filing a civil lawsuit against them. If successful, you will be able to secure the compensation you need to cover the damages you endured.

But when you are still focusing on your recuperation, the last thing you will probably be up for is going to court. While there are many instances where we can avoid going bringing your car accident case to court in New Orleans, sometimes heading to court is necessary to achieve full recovery of your losses.

How to Avoid Going to Court

Many times, we are able to get out of going to court by successfully negotiating with the insurance adjuster. Our goal is to get the insurer to provide you with a settlement offer that will meet your needs. However, it is not uncommon for the insurance company to do everything in their power to minimize the amount they will be obligated to settle for.

With this in mind, your attorney will do everything possible to negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement, but if the insurance company refuses to meet our demands, going to court could be the best option for your auto wreck claim.

When the Jury Should Hear Your Car Crash Case

If the insurance company is not willing to settle your accident claim for an amount that will meet your needs, heading to court to obtain the compensation you’re entitled to may be the next step moving forward.

In most cases, the simple threat of bringing the insurer to court will be enough for them to renegotiate the terms of your settlement so that you are awarded the funds that are rightfully yours. In the event that the insurer continues to deny you the money you deserve, we are prepared to bring them to court, where a judge and jury can hear the details of your New Orleans injury case.
