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.
Police in Louisiana are in the process of investigating a recent crash that resulted in three people needing medical care. This event occurred on Interstate 10 on Friday, March 6. If negligence is believed responsible for this collision, the victims may seek compensation for their losses by filing personal injury claims in civil court.
Every year, numerous teens in Louisiana are involved in car accidents -- particularly in the morning while driving to school. Some of these incidents have fatal outcomes, and many of them result in injury. According to a recently released study, numerous teen-involved collisions are the result of these young drivers getting behind the wheel while tired. As drowsy driving is considered negligent driving, anyone injured in one of these accidents may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means.
Some of the advances in technology are truly remarkable. Take the autonomous vehicle, for example. The idea is simply amazing, and many people believe taking this idea mainstream will help prevent car accident injuries from occurring -- but will it? Maybe someday Louisiana residents will no longer have to worry about car accidents, but that day is not anytime soon -- even with more autonomous vehicles out on the road.
Did another person's negligence cause you to suffer physical harm? If so, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses by filing a personal injury claim in a Louisiana civil court. Why would you want to do that? What might your case be worth?
If injured in a car accident, one expects insurance to cover any losses one experiences as a result -- whether they are economic or noneconomic in nature. That does not always happen, though, and sometimes personal injury victims need to take legal action in order to seek maximum relief. Unfortunately, some lawmakers in Louisiana are trying to limit how much victims can get.
Over the next several weeks, a lot of Louisiana residents and visitors to the state will travel along Interstate 10 to get to and from their holiday destinations. While it may seem like a typical interstate, according to a recent report, it is actually one of the most dangerous stretches of road to travel during the holiday season. Why is that, and what can people do to help keep themselves safe?
Anyone who has suffered injuries due to the negligence of other individuals while in the state of Louisiana may, understandably, wish to seek compensation for their losses. The state allows them to do this if certain elements exist in their cases. They simply have to file personal injury claims against those believed responsible for their losses within a specific time frame and work their way through the legal system. How much time are victims given to seek relief?
Everyone hears of hit-and-run accidents happening, but few think they will be victims of them. It is the kind of thing that happens to other people, right? Unfortunately, it did happen, and it is normal that one might feel at a complete loss. One of the top questions Louisiana residents who have been injured in such incidents may have is: Who will pay for damages?
Every day, people in Louisiana and elsewhere seek out medical care because they feel it necessary. When one does this, there is always hope that medical professionals will be able to figure out and treat whatever is going on. Unfortunately, mistakes are often made, and some will end up with a mis- or missed diagnosis. When this happens and one suffers a personal injury because of it, he or she may have legal recourse.
