Car Accidents in Louisiana
Every day, traffic-related incidents leave hundreds of people across our state with injuries. Although we can be proactive in ensuring the safety of others sharing the road, there is no way to ensure other motorists provide us with the same care and consideration. In fact, tens of thousands of people are harmed in accidents while hundreds of others do not survive their injuries. Statistics showed that more than 655 people lost their lives in auto accidents throughout the state of Louisiana in 2019. Tens of thousands of other people are left with injuries. Some of the most common injuries sustained by victims in crashes include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head injuries
These and other serious injuries require both immediate care and long-term treatment, like therapy and rehabilitation. Sometimes, treatment can last for several years or indefinitely, depending on the severity of the injuries. When victims are injured in accidents due to the negligence of others, they may have legal options available to them. By consulting with a personal injury attorney in Louisiana, victims can explore the legal options that are available to help them move forward and recover.
