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—and many times, these accidents could have been prevented. In Louisiana alone, an average of 800 people are killed in traffic accidents every year, along with an additional 73,000 left injured, and statistics show that almost 50% of all fatal accidents that occur in the state involve an intoxicated driver.
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:
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.
