It happened in the blink of an eye. While driving to the store, in your rearview mirror you could see another car coming up behind you fast. The driver was weaving in and out of lanes and going much faster than the posted speed limit. In the attempt to get past you, this individual lost control of his or her car and crashed into you, causing you to suffer various injuries. In Louisiana, when reckless drivers cause motor vehicle accidents, the victims may have legal recourse.
No one walks out their door thinking, “I’m ready to get into a car accident today.” These things happen and usually at the worst possible time. Injuries suffered in a car wreck can cause a person to endure physical pain, emotional trauma and significant financial losses — all from which may be difficult to recover.
If your typical day turned into a nightmare because of the actions of another person, it is okay to question if that individual may be held liable for your losses. It is okay to question if you can seek relief. Every auto accident case is different. Legal counsel can review the details of your specific case and help you pursue civil actions if doing so is deemed appropriate.
