Justice for Car Crash Injuries
Anyone who is injured in a hit and run or any other type of car accident in Louisiana has the right to seek compensation from those responsible. Although no amount of money can undo an accident, legal remedies are meant to put an injured person back in the financial position that he or she was in before the collision.
The money damages typically available in Louisiana car crash cases include compensation for current and future medical bills, property damage, and lost wages due to time away from a job. Additional compensation is often available for pain, suffering, and emotional distress, including issues related to a person’s inability to enjoy common daily activities.
In a tragic situation in which a person is killed in a crash, his or her loved ones can seek similar compensation for wrongful death. That includes seeking compensation for the pain and stress caused by the loss of a loved one.
To obtain money damages, a person seeking them generally must prove that the person responsible for the crash was negligent. That means that the driver - or a car manufacturer or other responsible party - didn’t live up to certain legal responsibilities, like operating a vehicle in a reasonably safe manner.
In hit-and-run cases, the first step is to track down the driver that fled the scene after the crash. A seasoned Louisiana personal injury lawyer can help.
