It is very unnerving to learn that the largest portion of traffic accidents take place just a few miles from home. Drivers who are just popping out to go to the corner market, the supermarket, take their dog for a walk in a local park, or stop by to visit with a friend or relative for the evening are not any safer than a driver who is planning to drive across the state or across the country. 

Following most collisions, crash victims will be left to deal with serious injuries. Common accident-related injuries include broken and fractured bones, internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. This list is nowhere near complete and lots of other serious injuries could force victims to undergo long and expensive hospitalizations, medical treatments, and even long-term care. 

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 New Orleans right away.
