Whatever case may be haunting you, let our experienced attorneys at Hammond Law Firm guide you through some of the most common scenarios we have run across.
Car accidents can result in personal injury and thousands of dollars’ worth of damages. In the state of Louisiana, all drivers are required to be covered by an automobile insurance policy. Not only may driving without insurance result in legal fines and penalties, but it will also exclude you from filing an insurance claim in the event of an automobile accident. If you do have insurance and you are involved in an accident, the coverage and compensation you can expect varies by the type and extent of your insurance policy.
