Driver inattention or intoxication aren’t the only reasons that a car crash can happen. Medical emergencies can also cause a car to go out of control. That’s what may have happened in this crash according to NOLA.com.
An elderly man was reported dead in a crash on River Road in St. Rose. The crash happened in the early hours of the morning.

Had another car been involved in the crash, this driver may have been able to use a sudden medical emergency defense. This can cause a driver to lose liability for an accident. If you think that a medical emergency caused your accident, you must get a personal attorney on your side so they can examine the facts and fight for or against this defense, depending on your position.
A personal injury attorney can also negotiate with your insurance company to see if you can get compensation from them in this type of accident, though you will have to pay your deductible first.
