Nearly 69,000 people were injured and over 660 more were killed in motor vehicle collisions last year in Louisiana. Injuries suffered in vehicular crashes can sometimes go beyond just physical and emotional damages, such as lost work wages and other compensable damages. The causes of these accidents range from simple inattentiveness to the reckless act of driving under the influence. Car accident claims can become complicated when the circumstances of the wreck are complex, making it difficult to determine who is responsible for the accident, and only a skilled personal injury attorney has the expertise to analyze the facts and determine liability.
