Drunk driving is a common cause of auto accidents. Drunk drivers often travel at high speeds and display complete disregard for traffic laws. Therefore, victims are at a much greater risk for severe injury and even death. If you were involved in an accident with a drunk driver, you are likely entitled to significant compensation. This may be the case even if alcohol was not the only contributing factor.

When a bicycle collides with a motor vehicle, even a small one, the bicyclist can receive serious injuries. Louisiana follows a pure comparative fault rule, which means that even if a victim is partly at fault for an accident, if another party is somewhat at fault, the victim can recover damages from that party. With the help of our experienced bicycle accident attorneys, you can focus on healing while we expertly handle your case.
