ACCIDENTs AND INJURY IN THE UNITED States

Understanding the True Impact of Car Crashes

Unfortunately, car accidents occur daily across the U.S., including in Louisiana. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), someone in the United States died in a traffic accident every 14 minutes in 2017.

There were approximately 2.7 million total injuries that year, which worked out to an average of five people being injured every minute in car crashes. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has reported that 768 people died in traffic accidents in Louisiana in 2018, while LSU’s Highway Safety Research Group reported approximately 166,000 traffic crashes overall in the state in 2017.

Whose Insurance Company Do You Call?

Generally, you call your own insurance company in the aftermath of any car accident to report it. It is vital to remember, however, that you should never admit fault to any insurance company representative, whether your own or anyone else’s.

You will likely be contacted by an insurance company representative or adjuster wanting to convince you to settle quickly—usually for a lowball amount that is far below what your case may be worth. It is important to remember that insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests, but mainly working to protect their profitability. That is why they employ their own legal teams who will always try to minimize their payouts.

All of these considerations are why you need Anderson Traylor Edwards to stand up for what is best for you and fight for your full compensation for:

All medical expenses
All lost earnings
Pain and suffering
Property damage to belongings
Emotional distress
