- Amputation, disfigurement or paralysis

Who Is Responsible For Your Injuries?
If you have had the misfortune of being involved in a car accident, speak with a car accident attorney in Louisiana right away. We can aid the process of determining who is responsible for your injury. Factors Louisiana car accident attorneys consider include:
- Local traffic regulations
- Weather conditions
- Both parties’ cellphone usage
- Both parties’ sobriety
Any Louisiana car accident lawsuit will also depend heavily on the police report, on accident reconstructions and on the testimony of eyewitnesses.
Who Will Pay Your Medical Bills?
Basically, whoever caused the accident also pays the bills, with some exceptions. You may have to pay your deductible and health bills until your case is resolved. In the long run, the at-fault party’s insurer will pay your deductible and health costs. If the other motorist did not carry any insurance or enough insurance, your insurer may pick up the slack. And if the accident occurred while you were acting as an employee, workers’ compensation should pick up the tab.
At any rate, your best course of action after an accident is to speak with a Louisiana car accident attorney about determining liability and insurance coverage. Insurers do not usually volunteer to pay the full cost of your medical bills or property damage without some additional lawyerly persuasion.
