Car Accidents in Louisiana
Being harmed in an automobile accident is not something that we can prepare for. No one knows what to expect from a crash. Although we often hear that collisions involving motor vehicles end in injuries, we cannot imagine how overwhelming they can be unless we are personally harmed. Unfortunately, more than 40,000 people across our state are forced to endure the sudden and unexpected consequences of crashes each year.
In many instances, those harmed sustain broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and even traumatic brain injuries that require both immediate medical treatment and long-term care. The pain and suffering from these incidents often add to the financial burdens that both victims and their families are forced to endure.
From being forced out of work to having to pay tens of thousands of dollars in medical costs, many injured parties fall behind and have a challenging time pulling ahead.
