Accident Handbook: The Practical Guide to Louisiana Personal Injury Law for Car Wreck Victims
Attorney Parker Layrisson has authored a book that explains Louisiana personal injury law to people hurt in car crashes.
The comprehensive 325-page guide is based on Layrisson s experience helping his clients deal with personal injuries since 2004, shares step-by-step solutions that help injury victims recover the compensation they deserve.
Accident Handbook teaches accident victims about the challenges they will face during the accident claims process. It focuses on factors injured people should consider before greedy insurance companies or unethical lawyers try to take advantage of their unfortunate situations.
Accident Handbook provides practical guidance for handling most aspects of a car wreck personal injury case and the insurance claim process. Topics include: protecting your rights after an accident; determining how much your claim is worth; fixing your vehicle property damage; and what to expect during your case.
The book reveals tactics used by insurance companies and shows readers how to recover a full and fair settlement. It also addresses specific mistakes to avoid, social media precautions, and time limitations pertinent to an injury case. Legal concepts such as mediation, arbitration, discovery, and liens are explained by Layrisson in an easy-to-understand instructive manner.
Advance praise for Accident Handbook calls it 'thorough and well-crafted' and 'a guide for real people, not lawyers.' One independent reviewer recommends that auto injury victims use this book to make sure that their attorney is doing what they should be doing. Another stated that 'Parker's book is the sling every accident victim should have in their arsenal to take on Goliath insurance companies.'

I had the privilege to read an advance copy of Parker Layrisson s Accident Handbook. It was written as a helpful guide to a person involved in the litigation process, but, because it is so comprehensive, and so readable, I recommend it to lawyers who handle these sorts of cases.
Mr. Layrisson not only covers the basic issues in this sort of litigation in great detail liability of the defendant, causation of the injury, and damages, he also carefully addresses ALL of the innumerable problem areas which invariably arise, and that many lawyers fail to consider: dealing with health insurers, interventions, subrogation issues, insurance coverage issues, workers compensation issues and many others.
I will keep this book on my desk. --Edward J. Walters, Jr. - Walters, Papillion, Thomas, Cullens, LLC, Baton Rouge, LA
As a practicing doctor of chiropractic for 26 years, and having treated literally thousands of accident patients, I can say that Mr. Layrisson's Accident Handbook is one of the best books I've read for the individual involved in a motor vehicle collision.
It is well-written, concise, in easy-to-understand terminology and covers all the aspects of an accident and what a person needs to do and be aware of before or after they've been in an accident. I highly recommend this book. --Dr. George Anthon, Jr. D.C. - Anthon Chiropratic Care, Hammond, LA
The modern legal system is convoluted even for 'simple car crash cases.' Parker's book is a thorough guide that patiently explains everything that a auto accident victim should know about how their case will be handled: from dealing with insurance adjusters, to hiring the right lawyer, to dealing with car repairs. Parker's book is an exceptionally well-crafted guide for anyone injured in an auto accident. --Ernest Svenson - PaperlessChase.com, New Orleans, LA
