Car accidents happen for various reasons, including poorly maintained roads, debris-ridden roads or even traffic violations and excessive speeding by car drivers. Car accidents may result in fatalities, too. Louisiana authorities reported that nearly 49 percent of car accidents resulting in the death of a victim were caused by alcohol consumption.
Car accident lawsuits are often intricate and multifaceted. Determining the exact cause of the car accident and assigning responsibility to one party for the purpose of claiming compensation can be difficult and time-consuming for the victim as well as any dependents.

Car accidents take various forms. Single vehicle accidents may be caused when one car crashes into another object, such as a person, tree, light pole, highway barrier or a large rock.
