Building a Claim Against the Negligent Driver Who Caused a Motorcycle Crash
The only way to recover compensation in a fault-based state like Louisiana is to prove another driver caused the crash. We need to show that the driver was careless or reckless, usually violating a traffic law, which led directly to the accident and our client’s injuries.
Types of Crash Cases We Handle
The Morris Bart law firm attorneys have experience handling claims based on many types of accidents and a wide range of injuries. Common types of cases include:
- Truck accidents: When a commercial vehicle driver causes an accident, we can often hold their employer legally responsible under La. Civ. Code Art. 2320. This includes tractor-trailer crashes.
- Single-vehicle crashes: In some cases, you may suffer injuries without hitting another vehicle. This could happen because you swerved to miss a reckless driver, crashed on poorly maintained roads, or had another issue caused by someone else’s negligence.
- Uber and Lyft accidents: We know how to navigate the complicated claims process to recover damages following a rideshare accident and injuries.
- Hit-and-run collisions: If the at-fault driver left the scene, we may be able to help you identify them or pursue other options for compensation.
- Uninsured motorist crashes: We may be able to help you pursue damages even if the driver who caused your accident did not have the required liability insurance.
We also understand the expenses and intangible losses associated with devastating, catastrophic injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burns and scarring
- Loss of limb or loss of use of a limb
How Long do I Have to Sue in My Case?
You generally have only one year to sue in Louisiana per La. Civ. Code Art. 3492. This is one of the shortest statutes of limitations in the United States. Under some circumstances, you may have even less time. Start thinking about your legal options as soon as possible to ensure you do not run out of time.
