If people have been injured in a car accident, they may be overwhelmed by all the life changes they and their family may be experiencing. In addition to physical injuries, they may have to deal with emotional trauma, financial struggles and property damage.

Nothing can erase the pain and suffering people are going through. However, filing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver responsible for the car accident may be the best option. Determining who is at fault for a car accident can be difficult. A qualified attorney can thoroughly investigate the facts and gather the evidence needed to build a person’s case. Police reports, witness testimony, expert testimony, Louisiana statutes and medical reports can provide critical information to support a victim’s arguments. The success of people’s suits will largely depend on whether they can prove that the other driver acted negligently and that this negligence caused people’s injuries.

If people prove that the other driver’s negligence caused their accident, they will likely recover damages to cover their medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages. Families that have lost a loved one in an accident may file a wrongful death suit to recover damages for funeral costs and other costs resulting from the loss of their loved one.
