The Morris Bart, LLC Team Can Handle Any Type of Traffic Accident Case in Luling
At the Morris Bart law office, we serve victims of almost any type of traffic accident. Many factors will impact the settlement for an accident case in Luling, including the type of accident, the liable party, the applicable laws, the cause, and the severity of injuries.
Every case is different, but we know how to prove fault and liability based on the facts we learn during our investigation. We can handle accidents involving other cars, trucks, motorcycles, pedestrians, rideshares, and commercial vehicles. Cases we cover may also deal with drunk or distracted driving, uninsured drivers, driver fatigue, teen or elderly drivers, and even hit and runs.
Under state law, accident victims who can prove the other driver acted in a negligent manner can generally hold them responsible by filing an insurance claim based on their liability insurance policy. This is one of the required policies for all drivers, as explained by the Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI).
Our team from the Morris Bart law office can gather the necessary evidence, file your claim, and work with the insurer to seek a fair payout that compensates you for your losses. Alternatively, we sometimes need to pursue a personal injury lawsuit in a St. Charles Parish court to hold the defendant legally accountable.
Our team is here to help you. Call (504) 613-4771 today for a free review of your case.

Proving Fault in a Luling, LA, Car Accident
A Luling car accident lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm will build a case to prove the other driver caused your car accident. This will require our team to identify the cause of the accident, prove it through evidence, and identify the at-fault party.
You may have a good idea of what happened and who caused it, but we need to confirm this and secure the evidence needed to convince the insurance company or court. The evidence available in a car accident case may include:
- The crash report filed by the responding police officer.
- A survey of the accident scene.
- Photos or video of the accident.
- Witness statements.
- Accident reconstruction data and expert testimony.
- Medical expert testimony.
- Your medical records.
- Receipts and other proof of your expenses.
We fully investigate every traffic accident case we accept, gathering the available evidence, and building a solid case to show our client’s losses. This allows us to approach the at-fault driver’s insurer and demand compensation or go into court with the confidence that we have a strong case against the defendant.
Recovering Damages for Your Accident-Related Losses
While holding the at-fault driver legally accountable may feel like a moral victory, financial recovery is what can help you handle your medical costs and property damage. It is vital for us to prove the damages you suffered, as well as the expenses and losses you are likely to experience in the future. We can use the proof of these damages to negotiate a settlement or argue your case at trial.
Some common damages we pursue in a car accident case include:
- Related medical treatment and support.
- Prescription medications.
- Lost income.
- Diminished earning ability.
- Property damages, such as car repairs.
- Related expenses, such as a rental car.
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages.
- Wrongful death damages.
Call Our Team as Soon as Possible and Let Us Go to Work for You
Civil Code § 3492 of Louisiana state law limits how long accident victims have to build a case and file paperwork against the defendant in court. This deadline generally arrives one year after the accident and injuries occur, although there may be circumstances that shorten or extend this time period.
If you miss the deadline that applies in your case, it will be difficult to secure a fair financial recovery, even through negotiations. You will likely lose the right to file a personal injury car accident lawsuit. Ensure you contact us with plenty of time remaining to avoid this issue.
