Whenever a victim is harmed in a motor vehicle accident due to the negligence of another, it is imperative that they seek solid legal advice from an experienced car crash attorney in Louisiana right away. Victims usually discover they have a wide variety of legal alternatives available to them as they look for financial recovery.

It is very worrying to discover that the highest percentage of road accidents takes place within a few miles from home. People who are just stepping out to go to the corner market, the grocery store, take their dog for a walk in a local park or stopping by to see a friend or relative for the evening, are not any safer than someone who is planning to drive across the state or across the country. 

The caring Louisiana car accident attorneys at Smiley Law Firm have decades of experience in helping their clients hold negligent drivers responsible. Our attorneys are prepared to guide you through the legal process and aim to provide effective and up-to-date legal guidance. 

Following most accidents, victims will be left to face serious injuries. Common accident-related injuries include broken and fractured bones, internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.  

For this reason, it is crucial that drivers never become complacent or let their guard down just because they are driving on a familiar street they have traveled many times before, running a daily errand to the gas station or the post office. Lowered awareness increases the likelihood of a car accident taking place, even when your destination is just around the corner.
