Louisiana Car Accident Laws Allow Victims to Hold At-Fault Drivers Responsible
According to the Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI), the state has insurance requirements that include mandatory automobile liability coverage for every driver. These requirements ensure that there should be some type of coverage in place to pay for a victims’ injuries in a car accident.
In many cases, we are able to file a claim, support that claim with strong evidence, and recover a payout for our clients based on their injuries, expenses, and other damages. This process is the most common way out for clients to receive compensation in a car accident case.
We take on all types of traffic accident cases. Some are more complex than others, but we do not shy away from them just because they involve more work or require us to consider more theories of liability or case law. The types of traffic accidents we handle include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicyclist accidents
- Uber/Lyft rideshare accidents
- Night driving accidents
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI) accidents
- Uninsured/underinsured motorist accidents
- Wet and icy roads accidents
- Hit and run accidents
- Fatigue and falling asleep behind the wheel accidents
- Elderly driver accidents
- Teen driver accidents

Morris Bart, LLC Knows How to Build a Car Accident Case for Compensation
An Algiers car accident lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm can work on building a solid case to prove what happened and who caused your car accident case. Then, we can take steps to outline negligence, liability, and losses in a convincing argument to the insurance company representing the at-fault driver. For example, imagine the driver who hit you ran a stop sign. We can prove:
- The driver arrived at the stop sign and had an obligation to stop.
- The driver failed to stop as necessary.
- The failure to stop caused the driver to collide with your vehicle.
- The collision damaged you, including injuries, expenses, and losses, both today and in the future.
By proving these facts, we can often convince the insurance company to provide you with a fair settlement for your losses as soon as possible to avoid us filing a lawsuit and taking the at-fault driver to court. If we have enough evidence to show that they would likely lose in court, this may be an effective method of financial recovery in your case.
Of course, if we need to represent you in lawsuit filings or at trial, our team of trial lawyers is ready. To learn more, call the Morris Bart law firm now at (800) 537-8185.
Damages Recoverable in an Algiers Car Accident Case
In addition to proving the other driver acted negligently and is, therefore, liable for your injuries and car accident losses, we also need to show the value of your current and likely future losses and expenses. Hence, we know we are seeking a fair payout in your case. Some of the damages we can usually prove in an Algiers car accident case include:
- Medical treatment, medications and devices, and related care and support costs
- Lost wages, commissions, and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Repair of your vehicle and other property damages
- Pain and suffering losses
- Other non-economic damages
If the Algiers traffic accident took the life of a member of your immediate family, we can also help you seek wrongful death damages. We offer free reviews for surviving family members.
The Deadline for Filing an Algiers Car Accident Civil Suit
Per Louisiana Civil Code (CC) § 3492, you usually only have one year from the day your accident occurred to file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. If the court does not receive the initial filings of your lawsuit before the anniversary of the accident, you may lose the right to hold the at-fault driver liable in court.
Preparing a personal injury lawsuit takes time, so it is important that you call us as soon as you can after your injuries stabilize.
