March 3, 2024

New Orleans, LA (August 01, 2021) – An car accident involving an unspecified number of vehicles that also caused victim injuries took place in New Orleans on Sunday, August 1st.

Sources from inside the Orleans Parish Police Department said that the collision occurred at about 2:15 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 on the Highrise Bridge, and caused traffic to back up all the way to Louisa Street.  

Local law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel were both dispatched to the scene. Paramedics evaluated everyone who was involved in the accident. At least one person sustained injuries that were serious enough to warrant transport to an area medical facility.

This accident is under investigation by local law enforcement officers.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

8.01 New Orleans, LA - Car Accident on Highrise Bridge Causes Victim Injuries

After almost any car crash, victims will be left with serious injuries. Common injuries caused by car accidents include fractured and broken bones, injury to vital organs, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal column damage. These and many other disastrous crash-related injuries could force victims to undergo long and expensive hospitalizations, medical treatments, and even long-term care. 

After being the victim of a motor vehicle crash in the state of Louisiana, due to the fault of a negligent party, it is immeasurably important that you solicit solid legal advice from an experienced car accident attorney in New Orleans right away. Victims typically learn they have a wide variety of legal alternatives available to them as they look for financial recovery.

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. 

It is extremely distressing to learn that the highest percentage of car accidents take place within a few miles of home. Drivers who are just stepping out to go to the corner market, the grocery store, take their dog to a local park, or go to visit a friend or relative for the afternoon are not in any less danger than someone planning to drive across the state or across the country. 

It is important that you never become complacent or let your guard down just because you are driving on a familiar roadway you have been on many times before, running a familiar errand to the gas station or the post office. Reduced awareness increases the likelihood of a car accident taking place, even when your destination is just around the corner.
