Case Study: Car Accident Settlement

Distracted Driver Causes Accident With Injuries

At SWLA Injury Attorneys, we specialize in representing individuals who have been injured in car accidents all across Southwest Louisiana. Our experienced personal injury attorneys understand the complexities of car accident cases, and can determine liability, negotiate with insurance companies, and advocate for fair compensation for our clients’ injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

In September 2023, a young family from Central Louisiana contacted us about a motor vehicle accident case. While the family was attempting to salvage a patio table found by the road, a distracted driver collided with the rear of their truck. Fortunately, the family members were not catastrophically injured and most recovered after a few months of medical treatment. Following the accident, SWLA Injury Attorneys settled the case fully addressing the damages, injuries, and medical expenses incurred.

Helping Clients Achieve A Swift And Fair Settlement

Unlike many car accident cases, the specifics of the young Central, Louisiana family’s accident were straightforward and uncomplicated. As the father and daughter were loading a table onto their truck, a distracted driver rear-ended their vehicle. Thankfully, the daughter escaped physical injury, but the father was thrown into a ditch and sustained injuries. His wife, who was in the car during the collision, was also injured. It was their first car accident, and feeling overwhelmed, they reached out to SWLA Injury Attorneys for guidance.

Our experienced lawyers guided them through the process, emphasizing the importance of seeking appropriate medical care to better evaluate and understand their injuries.

Despite needing just two months of treatment to fully recover, they accumulated substantial medical expenses due to the accident’s severity. After communicating with the insurance company representatives and their legal teams, we were able to secure an $85,000 settlement for the family.

This case exemplifies the pivotal role that swift and comprehensive legal representation plays in aiding victims grappling with the aftermath of a car accident. Through diligent advocacy and effective communication, we achieved a favorable outcome, providing the family with the financial support they needed to move forward with their lives. SWLA Injury Attorneys also arranged for the daughter to secure the counseling she needed after witnessing this traumatic event and will take the necessary steps to secure a favorable resolution on her behalf.
