Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of injury and death across Louisiana. Crashes are particularly common along Highway 90, Highway 1, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway through Metairie, and throughout the river parishes and Bayou country. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 800 people on average are killed every year in motor vehicle accidents throughout Louisiana.

Any number of factors may contribute to an accident. Often, the negligence of another driver may be at the root of what happened. Serious auto accident injuries and fatalities often result from crashes involving:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting or using a cellphone while driving
  • Reckless driving

Following a serious car accident, it is important to speak with a personal injury attorney about your rights and legal options.
