You were out riding around Zachary or elsewhere in Louisiana with a friend or family member behind the wheel when it happened. You were in a car accident and it was his or her fault. You were hurt and needed medical attention. This event has cost you a lot physically, emotionally and mentally, but you don't know what you can do to seek relief because you are afraid of damaging your relationship. You don't want to file a lawsuit against your loved one, so what can you do?
What people need to understand about filing personal injury claims is, they are not usually filed directly against a specific person. They are primarily directed against the responsible party's insurance provider. So there really shouldn't be a fear of ruining a relationship with a friend or family member because it usually isn't them that would pay any monetary judgment awarded.
Victims of automobile accidents deserve relief for their losses. They shouldn't feel guilty for seeking that relief. Friends or family should understand that you need to take care of you and if that means filing legal claims to seek the compensation, then you need to do that.
Filing a personal injury claim can seem a daunting task for many reasons. Legal counsel will have the ability to review the details of your case and assist you in filing any applicable legal claims against the appropriate party in a Louisiana civil court.
