Car Accident Lawyers in Baton Rouge
Helping Auto Accident Victims Secure Financial Compensation
With nearly 229,000 residents, and another 600,000 residing in the greater Baton Rouge area, Baton Rouge, Louisiana is no stranger to heavy traffic. A car accident can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. And when it does, the injuries and traumatic experiences can last a lifetime.
All drivers have a duty to exercise reasonable care when driving a car, motorcycle, or even a 40-ton 18-wheeler. When they fail to exercise this care, the result can be an accident that results in death or serious injury. This can leave you and your family with unexpected medical and emergency care bills, lost wages, car repairs, and more. Day Law Group understands the emotional and financial carnage automobile accidents leave behind, which is why we fight hard to get you the compensation you need and deserve.
How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim?
In Louisiana, victims of personal injuries have up to one year from the date of their accident to file a claim. One year can fly by so it's important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. If you fail to file your claim before one year has passed from the date of your accident you may lose your rights to bring forward a personal injury claim for your accident and you may lose your ability to win financial compensation. Working with an attorney has many benefits and can allow you the time to focus on recovery while we focus on getting you the compensation you deserve.
How Long Does It Usually Take to Settle a Car Accident Lawsuit?
There is no one size fits all answer for this. The length of your car accident claim will depend largely on the complexity of your case, the amount of damage done, and whether or not the responsible party is fighting the claim. The shortest amount of time a claim can be resolved is usually several months, but complex claims can take up to several years to resolve. The important thing to keep in mind is that at the end of your claim, with the right attorney by your side, you will receive the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Types of Car Accidents
Any kind of car accident can leave you with devastating injuries and losses. That being said, head-on collisions and rollovers are the most dangerous, and rear-end accidents are the most common. Side-impact crashes, also known as “T-bone” accidents happen frequently at intersections, and any time another vehicle hits you, we can help.
Day Law Group handles all sorts of collisions, including:
- Rear-end accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Side-impact crashes
- Crashes with semi-trucks
- Accidents due to defective parts
- And more
If your accident doesn’t fit into one of these categories, please give us a call anyway. We are not afraid to take on challenging cases and fight for your most favorable outcome.
What Causes Car Accidents?
When drivers adhere to the rules of the road, pay full attention, and drive carefully, car accidents are extremely rare. Unfortunately, people rarely behave perfectly behind the wheel.
Car accidents are frequently caused by:
- Drinking and driving
- Distracted driving
- Failure to yield
- Aggressive driving
- Drowsy driving
- Inexperienced drivers
Whether someone got behind the wheel after drinking or using drugs or took their eyes off the road to send a text message, they have behaved carelessly towards you. In Louisiana, all licensed drivers owe those around them an implied duty of care.
If someone violates this duty, you should not have to face the consequences alone.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents are dangerous, regardless of fault. After an accident, you may be facing serious injuries and need medical attention, time away from work, and other resources – none of which come for free.
