Fatal Car Accidents in Louisiana
Every year, more than 655 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Louisiana. Although we like to believe that other motorists have our best interest in mind, this is far from true. Fatal collisions have an overwhelming impact on families. Not only are families forced to deal with the mental and emotional pain and suffering of losing a loved one, but they often face overwhelming financial burdens from funeral costs, burial expenses, and the loss of income.
