2 Louisiana car accident victims sue driver for negligence

On June 3, two people in Louisiana who were injured in a car accident last year filed alawsuit against the driver at fault. The individuals named the driver, the company that owns the car he was driving and three insurance companies as defendants. The two plaintiffs are seeking financial compensation for personal injury, but the exact amount that they are seeking was not reported.

The car crash that led to the personal injury complaint took place in Jefferson Parish May 28, 2015. At the time, the plaintiffs were traveling in a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis while the defendant was driving a 2006 Ford E-250. According to the plaintiffs, the defendant struck the Mercury with his Ford, sending the Mercury to the right side of the roadway.

The plaintiff who was driving when the accident occurred claims that she was driving safely before her vehicle was struck by the defendant's vehicle. The lawsuit accuses the defendant of negligence, alleging that he failed to maintain an adequate distance, to keep a lookout, to control his vehicle and to exercise reasonable care.

A car accident victim who has suffered financial damages from the accident may sue the at-fault driver even if the driver was not criminally charged. A personal injury complaint is a civil matter that does not require the heavy burden of proof that a criminal case does. An attorney may be able to help an injured car accident victim to put together a claim and pursue the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries.
