Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Louisiana
Every year, more than 655 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Louisiana. Although we like to believe that other motorists have our best interest in mind, this is far from true. In many cases, victims are utilizing motorcycles at the time of their accidents. Fatal collisions have an overwhelming impact on families. Not only are families forced to deal with the mental and emotional pain and suffering of losing a loved one, but they often face overwhelming financial burdens from funeral costs, burial expenses, and the loss of income. Although we can take proactive steps to ensure others sharing the roads with us are safe, there is no guarantee that other motorists will take our well-being into consideration. As a result, many people end up injured or lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others.
