Louisiana Car Accident Statistics: Injuries & Fatalities
With a growing number of cars on the road, it is no surprise that motor
vehicle collisions account for the largest number of
personal injury claims being filed each year. Unfortunately, more than 6 million car accidents
happen each year in the United States—leaving
3 million injured and 40,000 dead. Many times, these accidents could have been prevented,
however. In Louisiana alone, an average of 800 people are killed in traffic
accidents every year, along with an additional 73,000 left injured. Statistics
show that almost 50% of all fatal accidents that occur in the state involve
an intoxicated driver.

Accidents Caused by Distracted Driving
Sadly, most car accidents that result in an injury could have been prevented.
Distracted driving—including a driver talking on the phone, texting
and driving, or taking their eyes off of the road—is one of the
most prevalent problems that an unsuspecting driver may face today, as
well as sharing the road with a reckless and/or careless driver. When
a distracted or reckless driver causes an accident, the subsequent victim
may face injuries that are catastrophic in nature, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- The loss of a limb
If you have been injured under similar circumstances, you may be
entitled to compensation. Negligently caused auto accidents can cause physical, emotional and financial
strain on the victim—including the ramifications of permanent physical
damage, emotional pain and suffering, the inability to earn a living in
the future, and the costs of extensive medical treatment.
If you have been forced to endure such consequences, you should not hesitate
to take the appropriate legal action. By contacting a qualified Shreveport
car accident attorney and explaining the facts of your case, you will
be one step closer to obtaining the financial compensation that you deserve.
