Louisiana Personal Injury Law and Drunk Drivers
People can go to jail for driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. However, criminal law is not your only option. It may be possible to bring a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit as well. If a drunk driver's actions have caused you or a loved one injury, you may be eligible for compensation for your losses.

The law also offers punitive damages that are meant to punish drunk drivers for getting behind the wheel. Punitive - or punishing - damages force drivers to pay you extra for their irresponsible actions. If you think that punitive damages should be a factor in your case, we urge you to ask a New Iberia DUI victim Louisiana personal injury lawyer at our law firm.

It is a common mistake: After a wreck, many people believe that they can handle matters themselves by negotiating with negligent drivers and their insurance companies. The trouble is that these people don't know what they're up against. Often, they are injured. They are in pain, worried and confused.

On the other hand, insurance companies are highly skilled at minimizing the value of claims. Their entire businesses are built around the idea of not paying compensation to injured drivers. So, when these drivers attempt to negotiate, the things they say and do can actually jeopardize their cases - depriving them of compensation they need and deserve.

If you have been in an accident, the matter is too important to try to do it yourself. Hire a lawyer who takes your case seriously and who knows how to deal with insurance companies, maximizing the damages you receive after a spinal cord, neck or back injury.
