Pursuing Compensation After A Vehicle Accident

What To Look When Choosing Your Attorney

Have you been injured in a car accident? Once you decide you need an attorney to help cope with the financial, medical and employment costs of a car accident, the next step is to find the right attorney.

At Gaar Law Firm, our lawyers offer empathy, experience, success and intuition. They know when to “play nice” with the other side, but also when to be tough and intimidating. Our only goal is to get the best result for you.

What To Look For: Experience

If you are seeking to secure just compensation from the other driver and the insurance companies, you want an experienced lawyer on your side, not someone straight out of law school with little practical experience.

At Gaar Law Firm, we have more than 40 years’ combined experience representing car accident victims. We have represented clients in parishes throughout Louisiana, in Texas and in federal court. We know local court rules and cultures and have mastered federal procedure.

What To Look For: Compassion

Few things feel worse than having your lawyer tell you, “If only you had been more injured, this case would be worth more.” You have suffered enough already; you are injured enough.

We are motivated to practice as car accident attorneys in Lafayette for the purpose of helping injured people receive just compensation for their injuries. We will never tell you to put on a neck brace you do not need or to show up in court on crutches you never use. We will listen to your story and take your side, whatever your injuries.

What To Look For: A Record Of Success

Our record of successful verdicts and settlements speaks for itself. Awards we have won for car accident victims include:

  • A $500,000 settlement for a car accident victim who required a one-level cervical spine fusion to return to work
  • A $1.18 billion settlement for a car accident victim who required spine surgery
  • A $721,000 settlement for a car accident victim who refused recommended lumbar and cervical spine surgeries
  • A $506,000 trial verdict for an unemployed car accident victim with previous injuries who suffered an unwitnessed single-vehicle accident with an escaped cow
