Auto Accident Facts
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that there were 5,973,000 auto traffic collisions in 2006. 117 people a day died in motor vehicle crashes in 2006—that is 1 fatality every 12 minutes, and a total of 42,642 traffic deaths. 2,575,000 people were injured.
Injuries from a motor vehicle collision can be life changing, traumatic, take a long time to recover from, and expensive to treat. Broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, and other catastrophic injuries may require extensive rehabilitation and the care of costly medical specialists. An injury victim may have to take time off from work and wages could be lost, which can make it difficult to cover living expenses let alone medical care.
Louisiana law gives auto accident victims just one year from the day the accident occurred to file a personal injury lawsuit against any negligent parties. It is important to obtain the proper legal representation right away while the evidence is preserved, witness testimonies are still fresh, and there is time to properly investigate and pursue your case.
Seeking Justice For Our Clients
Our litigation attorneys have a reputation for providing zealous, aggressive representation in our pursuit of justice for our clients. In many cases, this means obtaining the maximum financial recovery that your injuries warrant under Louisiana law.
Wrongful Death Cases
Losing a family member in an auto accident caused by another party’s careless or reckless behavior is never easy. Suing for wrongful death and/or survivorship may help to assuage the pain and loss that comes with the death of a loved one—especially in a tragic accident. It can help provide some financial relief and allow you to hold the responsible party liable.
