Serious injuries can alter one’s life in unimaginable ways. Different accidents can cause permanent damage to one’s physical and mental health, along with a financial impact that can be equally as devastating. Often, the most tragic part of these severe injuries is that they were caused by the negligence of others and could have been prevented if the responsible party had taken reasonable actions.

Paying for medical expenses, missing work, and adjusting to a diminished quality of life are just some of the issues that many personal injury victims cope with in the wake of a severe or catastrophic accident. Many victims are so overwhelmed with hardship that a legal fight to receive the compensation that they rightfully deserve might seem unbearable. For that reason, too many people choose to settle for an amount that will never be adequate to cover their losses and damages.

You and your family’s future and your ability to recover depend on your lawyer, so it’s important to make the right choice in your lawyer. Hiring a lawyer with a track record of success will help you get the best medical treatment and highest financial recovery. Favret Carriere Cronvich has acquired the skills, knowledge, and experience to handle the complexities that can arise from personal injury cases.

Favret Personal Injury New Orleans lawyers

Favret Carriere Cronvich understands the physical, emotional, and financial impact an injury can have on victims and their loved ones. Regardless of how big or small the case, our personal injury lawyers will provide you with compassionate and personalized legal representation. We are committed to providing our clients with aggressive legal representation for personal injury cases to ensure that they recover maximum compensation.

As dedicated and passionate New Orleans personal injury lawyers, we have helped a substantial number of clients recover maximum compensation.

Some of the types of personal injury cases we commonly handle are listed below:

  • 18-wheeler accidents – A collision with an 18-Wheeler or even a smaller truck can cause catastrophic damage and even result in death. For victims of such accidents, having to go against a truck company without a lawyer can be challenging and frustrating.
  • Rear-end accidents – These types of accidents are common but can cause a lot of hardships. Sometimes a lawyer is necessary to lessen the financial damages that could occur.
  • Slip and Falls – Often occurring in the workplace or other public areas, slip and falls can result in injury and be hard to prove. Winning a slip and fall claim requires proof of negligence.
  • Uber accidents – Unlike taxis, Uber has a limitation of liability clause that app users are required to agree to within their terms of conditions. If you’ve been involved in an accident with an Uber driver, don’t negotiate with Uber’s insurance company without contacting us first.
  • Lyft accidents – If you are hit by or have been in an accident involving a Lyft driver, the circumstances of your accident will determine if Lyft or the driver is liable. In many cases, you won’t be able to sue Lyft directly.
  • Motorcycle accidents – If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident and were not at fault, you could have a claim for compensation (including injuries, travel costs that resulted from the loss of transportation, loss of earnings, and medical costs).
  • Pedestrian accidents – Accidents involving pedestrians have the potential to be more serious, as pedestrians naturally have less protection than a driver sitting in a vehicle. Because of the increased risk for the pedestrian and the presumed responsibility on the part of motorists, you could have a great claim.

If you, a family member, or a friend has been involved in an accident and are suffering from severe injuries, please contact our New Orleans personal injury lawyers today to get the help you need.

Favret Personal Injury claims


Can I still pursue compensation for damages if I was partially at fault for the accident?

Can I still pursue compensation for damages if I was partially at fault for the accident?

Should I sign a release from an insurance company after my car accident?

No. You should never sign a release or settlement until your injuries are completely resolved and you have reviewed the release with your lawyer.

Will the at-fault driver’s insurance company pay for my medical bills?

Maybe. If your injuries are directly caused by the accident, then they should. In any event, the driver and their insurance are responsible for all damages caused by them in a car accident.

Will my insurance premium raise if I make an insurance claim under my (UM) uninsured motorist coverage?

Maybe. If you are not at fault and the person that caused the accident did not have sufficient insurance limits, and you are forced to make a claim on your own insurance, it is illegal for your insurance company to raise your insurance premium.

Should I provide the insurance company with a statement after my car accident?

No. In addition to the statement you likely provided to the police officer at the time of the accident, the insurance company will want another statement. If there are inconsistencies in your statements, they will likely use that inconsistency to deny or reduce their liability.

Can I still make a personal injury claim if Medicaid/Medicare paid for my medical bills?

Yes. The payor of your medical bills does not change your recovery for general damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional damages, and lost wages.

How soon after a car accident should I see a doctor?

It is critical that you see a doctor and be treated for any pain or injuries from your car accident at the earliest time possible. In Louisiana, if you wait a significant period of time before being treated, you will lose the presumption that your injuries are related to the accident and will create further dispute in your recovery.

What types of injuries can I consider damages from my car accident?

Louisiana charges any person who causes damages to repair it. Louisiana recognizes many injuries as damages including wrongful death, past and future medicals bills, past and future pain and suffering, mental anguish, past and future wages, and lose of earning capacity.

Will I have to take a deposition if I make a claim for injuries from my car accident?

Not necessarily. A majority of car accident claims settle without having to file a lawsuit. Of the remaining claims, a large number of claims resolve after filing suit. Generally, only if liability is disputed or if your claim has substantial injuries, including future damages, will you need to take a deposition.

Can one recover lost value of their car after a car accident?

Yes. In Louisiana, diminished value of a vehicle is recoverable. After your car has been in an accident, it loses value even if it is completely repaired. Depending on the age, mileage, and pre-loss value of the car, this amount can vary greatly.
