Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Louisiana
If you have been badly injured in a motorcycle accident, you are lucky to be alive! Motorcyclists are killed 27 times more often in accidents than passenger car occupants are, according to national figures. You are also entitled to compensation for your injuries and other losses if the accident was not your fault.
If you are the surviving relative of a motorcyclist who didn’t survive, you may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim for the fatal motorcycle accident.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Claims
If you have been hit from behind in a motorcycle accident, you are not alone. Rear-end collisions are the most common type of accident. They are also the most common cause of whiplash, a painful and potentially disabling neck and back injury.
A head-on collision is the type of accident most likely to result in death. Head-on collisions account for about 2 percent of car accidents but cause about 10 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities. Louisiana is no stranger to motor vehicle traffic nor motorcycle accidents. According to statistics, 8-10 percent of road accidents in the state involve motorcycle crashes. Moreover, almost half of that number is caused by motorcycle riders sustaining fatal injuries because they did not wear any helmet.
The driver who caused your car accident may have had something entirely different from driving on their mind at the time of the wreck. We’ve all seen examples of distracted driving: cell phone use behind the wheel, texting while driving, turning to deal with kids, applying makeup or shaving, fiddling with the radio, etc.
Distracted driving is multitasking at its potentially deadly worst. When a motor vehicle accident has been caused by a distracted driver, those who have been injured or lost a loved one deserve quick and sure compensation for their losses.
It should come as no surprise that intersections are the scenes of many motorcycle accidents. Multiple streams of traffic cross and turn in front of each other. When drivers don’t pay attention at intersections, crashes are often the result.
As you may expect, the increased speeds allowed on Louisiana interstates and highways result in more severe crashes when accidents occur. When high-speed highway accidents happen in heavy traffic, multiple vehicles may become involved, resulting in pileups that damage many cars and motorcycles, and injure or kill multiple people.
Baton Rouge motorcycle accidents can often lead to scars, lacerations or disfigurement.
