Being in a car accident is always a harrowing experience. For those who suffer injuries, it can be life-changing. Even a seemingly minor auto accident can cause injuries that lead to long-term complications. When the accident results in serious injury, like a brain or spinal cord injury, the victim may require lifelong medical care.
Motor vehicle accidents are often caused by another driver’s recklessness, inattentiveness or negligence. Drunk driving, texting and driving, and just plain carelessness have led to many wrecks. When the other driver is at fault Louisiana law gives the injured victim the right to recover compensation in a civil lawsuit. The victim can recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, pain, suffering and disfigurement.
Proving fault in a car accident case is not always a simple task. Witnesses must be interviewed, police reports scrutinized, and physical evidence such as skid marks and vehicle damage must be analyzed. Even when liability is clear, the negligent driver’s insurance company will often fight the claim.
