- Get yourself to a safe area. Roads are full of traffic and dangerous for you to stand on, so try to pull your vehicle off to the shoulder. If the vehicle is no longer operational, turn on your hazard lights and stay inside the vehicle until emergency responders arrive on scene.
- Call 911. In any accident, it will be important to have a police officer investigate and create a police report. Documentation of your recollection of what happened in the accident is crucial when determining who was at fault for the crash.
- Get medical treatment, even if you don’t think you are injured. Auto accidents are forceful collisions that can cause delayed injuries to your body. These injuries often catch people off guard several days after the accident occurred. Always seek medical attention, even if you feel convinced that you are not injured.

Truck Accidents In Louisiana
While any type of accident can be devastating, a truck accident can cause especially damaging injuries. Trucks are much larger and heavier than cars, meaning that the driver of the car is likely to be hurt even more severely than they would have been in a car-on-car accident. When you have been injured in a truck accident in New Orleans or Chalmette, it is imperative that you consult a truck accident attorney.
New Orleans And Motorcycle Accidents
While a truck accident may cause more serious injuries than a car accident, few auto accidents are more catastrophic than motorcycle accidents. The driver of a motorcycle is not afforded air bags and is not enclosed in steel, like drivers of cars and trucks are. Motorcycle drivers who are involved in accidents often suffer incredibly severe injuries beyond broken bones and soft tissue injuries, including brain damage, paralysis, and even death. A New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney is key in making sure that you are fairly compensated for the damages you suffer.
Can I Still File A Personal Injury Claim If I Was Partial To Blame For The Accident That Injured Me?
Louisiana adheres to a pure comparative negligence rule when dealing with accident claims. If you were 60% at fault for the accident that injured you, for instance, you will be entitled to recover for the forty percent of damages that are attributed to the negligence of the other party. Deciding which percentages of fault should be attributed to each party is a very complicated process and will be left to the jury or the judge, if your case proceeds to trial. An experienced Chalmette, LA auto accident attorney will be able to advise you on how likely your case is succeed.
