Injured in a car crash? These damages may be recoverable

Auto collisions happen every day in the state of Louisiana. Most of them are minor fender-benders, but some leave those involved with moderate to significant injuries.

Did a distracted driver run you off the road?

One minute you were driving along, focused on getting to your destination safely. Then, in the blink of an eye, you found yourself flying off the road as you swerved to avoid being hit by another car.

If a distracted driver ran you off the road and failed to stick around, you may feel there is little you can do to seek compensation for your losses, but that isn't necessarily the case. There may still be options for Louisiana residents in this position.

Will the autonomous vehicle prevent all car accident injuries?

Some of the advances in technology are truly remarkable. Take the autonomous vehicle, for example.
