Accidents occur throughout Louisiana on a regular basis, and sometimes there are tragic results to those accidents. Individuals involved in truck accidents or other vehicle collisions are often seriously injured or killed. When negligence or fault on the part of a driver or other party can be proven, surviving family members may choose to pursue a wrongful death suit against those potentially at fault in the accident.
Naming someone as a defendant in a wrongful death or personal injury case doesn't require that authorities cited them for an accident or charged them with any sort of criminal activity. Although such information might strengthen a personal injury case, plaintiffs can work with knowledgeable experts to investigate accidents and develop cases.
