BloomLegalTV: Personal Injury – New Orleans Auto Accident Attorney
Hi, my name is Seth Bloom here from Bloom Legal. Thanks for joining us again for another edition of one of our video blogs. Today, I want to talk about something that our clients ask us a lot and people have question is: what is personal injury and how do I find a personal injury lawyer? So I’m gonna go over that a little bit today and see if we can help you and if you’re watching this video maybe it can help you make a decision on hiring us or someone else to handle your case, and I mean if in fact, you have a case.
What we do here at Bloom Legal is we do a great deal amount of personal injury work. Typically, that is auto accident work. So that means if you’re injured in an auto accident and you need to be taken to a hospital or if you have whiplash from afterwards or anything else like that. Or if you’re not even sure, you can give us a call and let us evaluate your case for free. What we do is, you have to feel comfortable with us as your lawyer.
Let me tell you a few things that I think are important about deciding and picking a personal injury lawyer. One, does that person really do personal injury? A lot of times personal injury can be lucrative so just about every lawyer in town will say, “Oh, yeah, I do personal injury.” But do they really know what they’re doing? Do they really focus a great deal of their practice on personal injury and representing injured people? So I would ask the person there “How many cases do you have monthly or yearly regarding personal injury? How many cases have you gone to trial with? How successful are you?” These are the kind of questions I would start to find out, because you don’t want someone that does family law and divorce law who’s never touched a personal injury case suddenly handling your complicated personal injury case.
The other reason that I think it’s important is because people that regularly do personal injury cases are usually set up, have their offices set up for that. That means if you come to Bloom Legal and you’re injured in an accident, then we have doctors we can send you to. We have a team that we can send you to. Whether it’s psychological trauma and you need mental therapy or whether its physical injury and you need certain doctors, we can send you to the specialist we need. We’re set up here to take you to those doctors and to get you healthy because health is the most important thing. We want to get you healthy. So having a personal injury lawyer that’s set up to actually handle your injury is extraordinarily important.
Many times clients ask me, “Well, can I handle this case myself and just try to negotiate with the insurance company?” You certainly have that right. In my experience, almost never do insurance companies in these kind of personal injury cases treat people seriously without a lawyer. So I would definitely advise getting a lawyer, getting someone to review your case. Here at Bloom Legal and many other lawyers across the city and state, we offer free consultations. So if you have a question, if you’re involved in an accident, you have a question about whether or not it matters whether you had insurance or they had insurance, or you don’t think they were insured enough, we can answer all those questions. We can look at your insurance policy, we can look at their insurance policy, we can look at your injuries, we can evaluate it. We’re there to give you a basis and we do this for free.
So if you have questions about your accident, if you’ve been involved in a personal injury case whether it’s an auto accident case, a dog bite, a slip and fall, a truck accident, give us a call today. It’s free. Let us evaluate it from the very beginning. The most important thing is your health. We can get you to the right doctors. We can get your case set up, and then you go from there. The most important thing is that you take care of yourself and you get your injury recovered, and then we’ll make a claim for you. We’ll make a claim for you insurance company, and if we have to, we’ll file and we’ll sue against that insurance company and the person that committed this injury against you.
If you have any other questions, give me a call. Like I said many times, it’s a free consultation, that’s (504) 599-9997 Bloom Legal. We’re at 700 Camp Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130. So picking your personal injury lawyer, we’d like to help you with that. Thanks so much. Bye-bye.
