Who is involved in the most car accidents in Louisiana?

There are many drivers in Louisiana, both men and women. There has been a friendly debate about which gender has the best drivers with both thinking they are the best for various reasons. There are also drivers of all different ages in Louisiana and while it is less of a debate, they are differing thoughts about which age range has the best and worst drivers. However, the statistics show that both men and women of all ages are in many car accidents every year.

Overall, the statistics show that there are more licensed female drivers than male drivers, but that men are the drivers in more crashes. However, it is closer than one many may assume. In 2017, women have been the drivers in 26,276 crashes and males have been the driver in 30,544, which is approximately 54% of the total crashes. Males are the drivers in a higher percentage of the total fatal accidents though. Men were the drivers in approximately 74% of fatal crashes.

Young drivers are involved in a higher amount of accidents though than middle age and older drivers. There are 923,265 licensed drivers between the ages of 15-34 and they are involved in 26,116 car accidents. In contrast there are 1,506,479 drivers that are between the ages of 35-64 and they are only involved in 24,812 accidents. So, as most older drivers assume, younger drivers do seem to be more dangerous on the roads than older drivers.

The statistics show that there are many car accidents on Louisiana roads each year. However, it does not matter to the victims whether the drivers are men, women young or old, all they care about is getting better afterwards. Unfortunately this is not always an easy task and can take time and be costly. The victims may be entitled to compensation for their injuries though. It is important that they are compensated properly though and experienced attorneys may be able to help protect one's rights.
