Algiers, LA – Two Injured When Car Crashes Into Storefront on General De Gaulle Dr

February 24, 2024

Algiers, LA (June 18, 2021) – On Monday, June 14th, a Honda SUV crashed through the front of a clothing alteration shop in a strip mall in Algiers, injuring the driver along with the building’s owner.  

The episode occurred in the 3800 block of General De Gaulle Drive near the intersection of Holiday Drive. 

Emergency medical services responded to the 911 call and were on the scene to help evacuate victims from the structurally compromised building.

Eyewitness accounts indicate that a woman driving a Honda SUV pulled into the parking lot and had begun to slow down when, for reasons that have not yet been determined, her vehicle suddenly accelerated and plowed through the front of the shop, trapping the owner of the strip mall underneath her vehicle.  

The victim was transported via ambulance to an area hospital with a serious knee injury. 

The driver of the Honda was also hospitalized with unspecified injuries.  

An investigation is underway.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Pedestrian Injuries in Algiers

Victims who endure an injury caused by a pedestrian accident in Louisiana will promptly be contacted by an adjuster from the insurance company of the at-fault driver. The purpose of this phone call is to obtain an oral or written statement from the victim outlining their version of the circumstances surrounding your accident which will then be used against you. As an injured victim, you are absolutely not required to comply and, if you have not yet spoken to a car accident attorney, you are heavily discouraged from doing so.  

In most cases, collision victims will experience life-changing injuries. A few of the more common crash-related injuries sustained in Louisiana car accidents are fractured and broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, damage to internal organs, and injury to the spinal cord. This list is not exhaustive and many other critical injuries car force victims to endure lengthy and costly hospital stays, medical treatments, and long-term care. Anytime a victim is harmed in a motor vehicle crash because of the negligence of another, it is important that they solicit reliable legal advice from an experienced car crash attorney in Louisiana right away. Victims typically discover that they have a wide variety of legal alternatives available to them as they seek financial recovery.
