Car crash claims 2 lives, leaves 2 injured

Police officers in Louisiana were recently called to the scene of an automobile collision that occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 10. According to reports, both drivers died in the car crash, and two passengers survived the incident but were left with injuries. Under the right circumstances, the surviving victims and the family members of at least one of the deceased may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means.

If I file a personal injury case, will it go to trial?

Louisiana residents who have suffered injuries due to the negligence of others may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means. Some people choose not to file personal injury claims, however, because they fear that, by doing so, they will have to fight for relief in court. The good news is, if you were hurt due to another person's actions and you choose to pursue legal action, your case may not have to go to trial. These claims are often settled long before things get that far.

Slip-and-fall accident may suggest need for personal injury claim

It can happen in an instant. One moment a Louisiana resident is walking down an aisle or sidewalk and the next moment that same individual is lying injured on the ground. Slip-and-fall accidents can happen for a variety of reasons some of which may need to be addressed through a personal injury claim.

2 killed in Louisiana car accident

Because motor vehicles are such an integral part of people's lives, it may be easy to forget how much damage an accident can cause. However, because of how easy an accident can occur and the amount of harm one can inflict, it is imperative that all drivers remain vigilant at all times. Unfortunately, a recent car accident in Louisiana left two people dead.

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. Following a car crash with injuries, victims may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses. The state allows for the recovery of certain economic and non-economic damages.

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. You crashed and were injured, but the other driver was too distracted to even notice what he or she had done. 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.
