Pedestrian Accidents in Louisiana

Pedestrian accidents in Louisiana are uniquely dangerous due to the state's low walkability and lack of adequate sidewalks and pedestrian infrastructure. These factors put pedestrians at a higher risk of being involved in accidents with vehicles. When such accidents occur, the results can be devastating, often leading to severe injuries and significant financial burdens. Pedestrians are especially vulnerable resulting in injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Severe cuts and bruises
  • Crush injuries

These injuries often require extensive medical treatments, including emergency care, surgeries, and rehabilitation. Many victims find it challenging to cover these expenses, especially if they are unable to work due to their injuries. This financial strain can be overwhelming for victims and their families.

If you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident in Louisiana, it’s crucial to seek legal assistance immediately.
