It is important to seek not only medical help following this kind of accident, but legal help as well. You need an experienced lawyer that knows how to deal with these commercial carriers and who can help put your stress at ease.

Hit and RunA hit and run auto accident happens when there is some type of collision and the at-fault driver flees the scene. It is illegal to not stop and provide your information after an accident. If this happens to you, you should try to get the license plate, immediately call the police, get the name and address of all witnesses, take photographs of the scene, describe the scene in writing, contact your insurance company, and contact a car accident attorney. Often it is hard to identify the person responsible in a hit and run, especially without the license plate. That is why it is important to write down as much information as possible and contact an attorney who can collect the relevant information and try to locate the responsible driver.

Uninsured Motorist – Louisiana law requires you to carry insurance on you vehicle. Unfortunately, most insurance companies don’t inform you about “UM” insurance. UM stands for uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. This means that if you are involved in an accident with someone who doesn’t have insurance, but you have UM insurance, you will most likely still be covered for your property damage and injures. UM insurance also protects you in the event that the person you were in an accident with doesn’t have enough insurance to cover your injuries and property damage. A good attorney knows the applicable laws to UM insurance. You should also call your insurance company to make sure that you have this additional insurance as it is very cost effective.

A competent motorcycle accident attorney can prove that you were the victim in these such cases.
