How We Can Help
Millions of Americans each year are injured in car accidents. Car accidents are also the leading cause of brain and spinal cord injuries, neck and back injuries, orthopedic injuries and neurological injuries.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) compiles annual data on car accidents for each state.
In 2018, the most recent year for which statistics are available, 768 people lost their lives in car accidents in Louisiana. Countless more were injured.
In Louisiana, a person who was injured in a car accident only has 1 year to seek justice. Additionally, many persons who were injured in car accidents find that the insurance claim process can be a nightmare. The insurance companies have experienced adjusters and attorneys looking out for their interest. Due to these facts, it is no surprise that car accidents typically represent the largest percentage of civil injury cases pending in courts.
