Thousands of people in the United States suffer injuries or lose their lives in pedestrian accidents. Many of these are the result of auto-pedestrian collisions, while others occur due to property defects. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you may, according to the laws of Louisiana, be entitled to seek compensation for any losses you have experienced.
Despite their vulnerability to injury, bicyclists and pedestrians are often close to traffic. As you travel the same Louisiana roads, you could be involved in an accident. Even if you are not criminally liable, you could find yourself facing a personal injury or wrongful death claim depending on the circumstances. You likely are wondering what your options are.
