Types of auto accidents we handle in New Orleans
When it comes to car accidents, Louisiana is a “fault” state. This means that the at-fault driver is liable for any damages to the other driver. If you’re involved in a motorcycle, trucking, or auto collision, do not admit fault. Instead, contact an attorney. We can review your case, use traffic and accident experts to analyze the scene, and determine who is responsible for causing you injury. Our attorneys regularly represent injury victims who suffer in the following types of motor-vehicle accidents:
SUV rollovers — Due to their top-heavy design, SUVs are more likely to roll over than passenger vehicles. However, sports utility vehicles don’t just roll over on their own. In most cases, these accidents occur because of speeding, driver error, a collision with another vehicle or fixed object, or vehicle malfunction.
Head-on collisions — Head-on collisions often cause catastrophic if not fatal injuries. These types of accidents generally occur because a driver is fatigued, inebriated, or distracted. However, malfunctioning brakes, tires, or other components can cause vehicles to behave erratically.
T-bone impacts — T-bone accidents occur when the front of one car collides with the side of another vehicle. Many T-bone accidents are caused by drivers trying to run stop signs or red lights.
Rear-end collisions — Rear end collisions are the most common type of motor vehicle accident. Injuries sustained depend on the type of vehicles involved, the speed at which the vehicles are moving, and whether vehicle occupants are wearing safety belts.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year more than 32,000 people are killed and 2 million more are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the country. Many of these accidents are preventable. If you suspect a negligent driver is at fault for causing your injuries, our sympathetic team of accident lawyers is ready to advocate for your right to compensation.
