It is very troubling to learn that the largest percentage of road accidents take place within a few miles from home. People who are just stepping out to go to the corner market, the grocery store, taking their dog for a walk in a local park, or stopping by to see a friend or relative for the evening, do not face any less of a threat than those who are preparing to drive across the state or across the country. 

After the majority of accidents, victims will be left to endure serious injuries. Frequent accident-related injuries include broken and fractured bones, internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.  

Anytime a victim is hurt 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 Baton Rouge right away. Victims usually discover they have a wide variety of legal alternatives available to them as they look for financial recovery.
