Unsafe Lane Changing Accidents

Louisiana law requires drivers to exercise caution when changing lanes. All too often, a driver may not see a motorcycle on the road when changing lanes, especially if the motorcyclist is in the driver’s blind spot. When a driver in a passenger vehicle unsafely changes lanes and hits an unsuspecting motorcyclist, the consequences can be tragic. In these devastating situations, the Lafayette motorcycle accident attorneys at Broussard, David & Moroux are prepared to lend their assistance.

Insurance companies are quick to deny motorcyclists and their families compensation if the driver claims he did not see the motorcycle when changing lanes. However, in reality, driver inattention is a leading cause of this type of motorcycle accidents. Drivers are legally required to be aware of their surroundings on the road, including motorcycles. Distracted driving and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can detract from a driver’s ability to observe other vehicles on the road. Even if a driver claims to have not seen a motorcyclist, the driver may still be held responsible for the accident with the assistance of a motorcycle accident lawyer in the Lafayette area.

After an unsafe lane changing accident, do not hesitate to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer. A serious motorcycle accident can leave a motorcyclist with head trauma, broken bones and back injuries. An innocent motorcyclist should not have to bear these costs of treatment alone.

Our Lafayette motorcycle accident lawyers at Broussard, David & Moroux have the experience and expertise required to aggressively take on reckless drivers and their insurance carriers to help you and your family recover the compensation that you need to move forward with your lives.
