You've Been Injured In A Crash — What's Next?

Car accidents happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Most people have no idea what to do after a car accident. At Magee, Zeringue & Richardson, Attorneys at Law, we want people to know exactly what to do (and not to do) after a car accident in Louisiana.

We work with clients throughout the Northshore in Louisiana who have been injured in car accidents. Our attorneys are committed to client service. We tailor our legal services to find a resolution that best suits your needs.

Focused On Client Service

We recognize that dealing with a personal injury is both physically and emotionally challenging. We vow to give you great service that helps relieve some of your burden. You can ask us questions about your case and expect updates as your case progresses.

Next Steps After A Car Accident

After you've been in a car wreck, make sure you follow these tips:

  • Call the police to get an accident report, and exchange information with everyone involved, even witnesses.
  • Take pictures and videos of the crash scene.
  • Get in touch with an attorney at Magee, Zeringue & Richardson, Attorneys at Law.

Do not speak to an insurance adjuster before you have legal counsel. Adjusters are particularly keen on getting individuals to settle their claim. You do not want to accept an offer that is lower than what you deserve. We are familiar with some of the common insurance tactics, and also know how to deal with unique insurance issues — such as underinsured/uninsured motorist claims.

Do I Need An Attorney?

While you are not required to work with an attorney, it is a smart idea to think about the benefits of working with legal counsel. If you have a lawyer representing you in your claim, your rights will be protected.
