Are New Orleans Car Accidents Always Caused by a Driver?

Car accidents occur for a variety of reasons. Many of those reasons are directly related to d driver negligence and carelessness. If a driver causes a car accident, that driver may be held liable for damages under Louisiana’s personal injury laws.

However, not all New Orleans car accidents are caused by driver negligence. Some car accidents are caused by circumstances that drivers cannot control. Who is responsible for damages caused by those car accidents?

Car Accidents Caused By Factors Other Than Driver Negligence

Driver negligence includes factors such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued or drowsy driving
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Following too closely or tailgating
  • Drunk driving or drugged driving
  • Failing to yield the right of way and other traffic infractions

However,hazardous road conditions and inclement weather are not within a driver’s control. A pothole can cause a tire to blow out, resulting in an accident if the driver loses control of the vehicle. Likewise, flooding, wind, and fog can be factors in a car accident. Even glare from the sun can temporarily blind a driver thereby contributing to the cause of an accident.

When conditions that are beyond the driver’s control cause an accident, the driver may still be liable for damages resulting from a crash. For instance, if a driver does not slow down in heavy rains or fog, the driver’s speed could be a contributing factor in the cause of the accident. Likewise, if a driver is speeding through a construction zone or is distracted and does not notice road debris, the driver’s actions could be factors in the cause of a crash.

However, a government entity or contractor could be liable for damages caused by hazardous road conditions. In an accident involving road conditions, several parties could be liable for damages.

Conducting an Accident Investigation to Determine Cause and Liability

It is important to conduct a thorough accident investigation to identify the cause of the crash and the parties who may be liable for damages. Under Louisiana’s personal injury laws, only parties who are at-fault can be held liable for damages arising from a car accident.

Our New Orleans car accident attorneys investigate crashes to identify all potential parties who might be liable for damages. We want to ensure that we identify all parties that might be responsible for damages to increase the chance that an accident victim receives full compensation for all damages.

Damages in a New Orleans Car Accident Case

Each accident claim is unique. The types of damages and the amount of compensation a victim may receive depend on the facts of the case. However, most car accident victims are entitled to receive compensation for damages including:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Permanent impairment or disability

Can Taking Pictures of a New Orleans Traffic Accident Help My Case?

If you are involved in a traffic accident in New Orleans, having evidence to prove that the other driver caused the accident is crucial if you want to recover compensation for an accident claim. Louisiana’s personal injury laws require that you prove that the other driver did something to cause the crash before you can recover money for an injury claim.

Our New Orleans traffic accident attorneys thoroughly investigate accidents to determine fault and gather evidence. However, any information and documentation you can provide from the accident scene can greatly help in strengthening your case for full recovery of all damages.

How Can Taking Pictures of a Traffic Accident Help Me?

A police officer typically does not take pictures of an accident scene. The officer may describe the location of the vehicles and sometimes draw a diagram. He will note what each driver claimed happened that caused the collision. However, the accident report may not paint a clear picture of how the accident really occurred.

Photographs and videos of the accident scene can give a clearer indication of how the accident occurred. This evidence can help substantiate your claim that the other driver caused the crash and that you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and losses.

Tips for Taking Photographs and Videos of a Traffic Accident

First, you never want to place yourself or any other person in danger to take pictures or make videos. If you are injured, do not try to move around to take pictures because you could cause yourself further injury. However, if you can safely move about to take photographs, here are a few tips to keep in mind that can help you capture evidence that may prove fault for the crash:

  • Take as many photographs as possible,but start with a video first. A video captures everything, even things that you may not notice or know that you need to snap a picture of after a crash. The photographs and videos need to be from as many angles as possible.
  • Try to include the location of the vehicles immediately after the crash and the damage to the vehicles in your videos and photographs.
  • Take pictures of broken glass, road debris, skid marks, traffic signs, and the surrounding area. Overgrown brush,defectively designed intersections, missing traffic signs, or other conditions could be factors in the cause of the crash.
  • Make sure that all the videos and pictures have date and time stamps.

Do not get in the way of police or first responders to take pictures. You should always obey instructions from first responders to avoid placing yourself and others in danger at an accident scene.

You do not need to have pictures of an accident scene to win your case. Pictures may help, but our New Orleans traffic accident attorneys are experienced lawyers who understand how to investigate an accident and gather evidence to prove fault.

What is the Deadline to File a Car Accident Claim?

Being injured in a car accident in New Orleans may result in substantial damages for accident victims. In addition to the physical and emotional injuries sustained in a car crash, victims also may incur significant financial damages related to the crash. Property damages, medical bills, and loss of income are just some of the examples of financial losses you might sustain because of a car crash.

However, to recover compensation from the driver who caused your crash, you must file an accident claim with the driver’s insurance policy. In many cases, accident claims are settled with the insurance provider without the need to file a car accident. Unfortunately, settlement is not possible in every case. If you need to file a car accident lawsuit in New Orleans, you need to be aware that you have a very short time to file a lawsuit or you lose your right to file the lawsuit under Louisiana’s Statute of Limitations.

Louisiana’s Deadline to File Car Accident Lawsuits

Louisiana enacted a very short deadline for filing a car accident lawsuit. Most lawsuits for car accident claims must be filed within one year from the date of the accident. This one-year deadline applies to all types of motor vehicle accidents including:

  • Car crashes
  • Large truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Work zone accidents

One year is not a long time to file a lawsuit when you consider that some accident victims may still be receiving medical treatment for traumatic injuries a year after the initial crash. Therefore, accident victims should consult a New Orleans car accident attorney even though they may still be receiving medical treatment.Your attorney can take steps to protect your legal right to recover compensation for your damages from the party liable for the car crash.

Your Deadline to File a Car Accident Lawsuit Could Be Shorter!

In some cases, the deadline to file a car accident claim may be shorter. For instance,if a government agency or government employee is involved in the accident, you may have a few months to file your claim. If you fail to file your claim, you may lose your right to recover compensation for the accident.  Therefore, it is in your best interest to consult with a NOLA car accident attorney as soon as possible after a car crash.

Don’t Lose Your Right to Receive Money for Your Car Accident

The financial losses sustained because of an accident are only one component of a personal injury claim. You may also be entitled to receive compensation for your physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering. However, you must act now to protect your rights. Contact an attorney to discuss your case during a free consultation. It does not cost you anything to talk to one of our New Orleans personal injury attorneys about your car accident claim.

What Are My Damages in a New Orleans Automobile Accident?

Many people are surprised to discover that they may be entitled to more money than they realized for their automobile accident claim. One of the reasons for consulting with a New Orleans personal injury attorney is to ensure that you do not accept a settlement amount that is lower than the value of your claim. Unless you are familiar with Louisiana personal injury laws, you may not be aware of all damages that may be included in an auto accident claim. Therefore, it is usually in your best interest to talk to an attorney before you accept any settlement offers from the insurance company for the other driver.

Is the Insurance Company Required to Pay All My Expenses?

An insurance company will pay as little as possible to settle your accident claim. The insurance adjuster does not work for you. The adjuster represents the insurance provider. Therefore, the adjuster is not going to tell you if you are accepting a settlement offer that is below the true value of your injury claim. If you do not understand personal injury laws, you may not know that you can include an amount for your travel expenses to and from doctor appointments; the cost of paying someone to clean your home or mow your grass; or, the cost of over-the-counter medical supplies and medications.

In most cases, an insurance company should reimburse you for all your financial losses related to the accident, your injuries, and your recovery. In addition, the insurance company should also compensate you for your non-financial losses. Non-financial losses are usually referred to as “pain and suffering”damages. Pain and suffering damages may include:

  • Physical suffering and pain
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Emotional stress
  • Impairment and disability

The compensation for pain and suffering damages may be substantial, especially in cases of permanent impairment of disability.

Calculating the Value of an Auto Accident Claim

Calculating the value of your claim can be difficult. You must have evidence of your financial damages. Therefore, you need copies of medical expenses and other expenses related to your claim. For loss of income, you need evidence of your income before the crash and a detailed record of the income you lost because of the accident and your injuries.

Future financial damages are much more difficult to calculate. If you suffer an injury that requires ongoing medical care and prevents you from returning to work, you may be entitled to compensation for the anticipated future financial losses. In many cases, financial and medical experts are required to calculate future damages correctly.

Pain and suffering damages are also difficult to calculate. Converting human suffering to a dollar amount would be easier if the personal injury laws provided an equation for pain and suffering damages, but they do not. Therefore, a New Orleans personal injury lawyer utilizes the evidence in your case to substantiate the claim for non-economic damages. An experienced attorney understands how to maximize the compensation for non-economic damages.

Preparing for a Holiday Road Trip

Driving during the holidays can increase your risk of being involved in a car accident.The increase in traffic accidents during the holidays can be attributed to several reasons. For instance,there are more cars on the road during the holiday shopping season. In addition, people travel during the holidays to spend time with family and friends.

Another reason for an increase in traffic accidents during the holidays is an increase in the number of DUI incidents and buzzed driving incidents from Blackout Wednesday(the day before Thanksgiving) through the New Year’s Day holiday.

Regardless of the reason why car accidents may increase during the holidays, you need to ensure you are prepared for any emergency that may arise if you are planning a holiday road trip.

Tips for Preparing for a Holiday Road Trip

AAAExchange and Consumer Reports offer several tips for preparing for a holiday road trip.Some of those tips and additional tips for a safe holiday road trip include:

  • Prepare for the weather you will be driving in during the entire trip. In addition to checking the weather for your present location and your destination, check the weather for the route you will be driving. You need to ensure that you are prepared for driving conditions that could change during as you travel to your destination.
  • Schedule a maintenance appointment for your vehicle. You need to have your vehicle serviced before a road trip. Make sure that the technician checks the tires, brakes, steering system, fluids, hoses, lights, windshield wipers, and other essential components and systems.
  • Map your route in advance and check the route for peak driving times. Try to avoid driving through areas that are congested with traffic during peak driving times.
  • Make sure that you have the current roadside assistance information in your vehicle, including your vehicle insurance information and the vehicle’s current registration.
  • Get plenty of sleep the night before your road trip. If possible, share driving responsibilities with another adult so that you do not become overly fatigued or drowsy.
  • Take plenty of breaks during your road trip. It is important to remain alert while driving. Driving long distances without breaks can increase the risk you become distracted while driving.
  • Always wear seatbelts and use appropriate child safety restraints.
  • Carry a portable battery charger for your cell phone in case you are stranded.
  • Check to ensure your car emergency kit is up-to-date. You need basic first aid supplies, flashlight with extra batteries, jumper cables, water, protein snacks, hand sanitizer, road flares, blanket, and a fire extinguisher.
  • Do not block your view with packages and suitcases. You need to see clearly from all windows and mirrors.
  • Pack snacks and activities for children to keep them entertained during long road trips.

Using Mediation or Arbitration to Settle a New Orleans Car Accident Claim

When you are injured in a car accident in New Orleans,Louisiana personal injury laws give you the legal recourse necessary to recover compensation from the driver who caused the crash.  However, you must prove the driver caused the accident, and your injuries are a direct result of the accident. If the other driver disputes liability, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation.

Even though you file a lawsuit, you do not need to have a trial to settle your lawsuit. You can use an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) method to settle your lawsuit.You can also use an ADR method to settle your claim before you file a personal injury lawsuit.

What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?

ADR is a method of settling disputed claims without the necessity of a trial. In most cases, ADR is less costly than a trial. ADR is also usually less expensive and quicker than proceeding to trial. Common personal injury cases that may be settled through ADR include:

  • Car Accidents
  • Commercial Vehicle Accidents
  • Large Truck Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents

Two of the most common forms of ADR is mediation and arbitration.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a non-binding form of ADR that involves using a neutral third party to facilitate settlement negotiations between the parties. The mediator does not render an opinion or a ruling in the mediation. He or she only acts as a neutral party to keep the other parties talking through settlement terms. In some cases, the parties may meet together with the mediator. However, some parties choose to have the mediator go between the parties to relay messages and discuss settlement terms. The result of mediation is not binding on either party.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is another form of ADR, but arbitration can be binding or non-binding. With binding arbitration, the parties are bound by the decision of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is also a neutral party like a mediator. However, the arbitrator listens to evidence presented by both parties and then issues a ruling in favor of one party or the other party. If the arbitration is binding, the parties do not have any further legal recourse.In non-binding arbitration, either party may pursue a lawsuit if they do not like the arbitrator’s decision.

Arbitration is not as formal as a trial. Even though an arbitrator should use the same laws to decide the case, the rules of evidence are different from evidentiary rules fora trial. Therefore, the parties may submit evidence during arbitration that they may not be able to use during a trial.

Contact a New Orleans Car Accident Attorney for More Information

In some cases, it can be difficult to know whether to proceed to trial or utilize a form of ADR. Our New Orleans car accident attorneys are trained negotiators and skilled trial attorneys.  We evaluate each case carefully to determine the best option to maximize the chance of receiving full compensation for all damages.

What Do You Need to Know About Riding a Motorcycle in New Orleans?

Thousands of people are injured and killed in motorcycle accidents in the United States each year. Sadly, a motorcycle crash can change your life and the lives of your family members forever. While you cannot control road conditions, weather conditions, or the behavior of other drivers, there are things you can do to reduce the risk of a crash when riding a motorcycle in New Orleans and increase your chance of recovering full compensation if you are injured in a crash.

  1. Never Ride a Motorcycle in New Orleans After Drinking

As in all other cities and states, the legal limit for DUI is .08 in New Orleans. In addition to being against the law, it is dangerous to ride your motorcycle while impaired by alcohol. Even if you do not cause a DUI accident, your reaction time and reasoning may be impaired, causing you to be unable to act quickly to avoid a collision.

  1. Purchase Additional Insurance to Cover Motorcycle Crashes

Many drivers carry minimum insurance coverage, which is extremely low when you consider the average costs associated with motorcycle accidents. In addition to the minimum insurance required for motorcycles, you should consider purchasing additional insurance coverage to help pay for expenses and losses if the at-fault driver does not have sufficient insurance coverage.

You may want to purchase PIP (personal injury protection) coverage, MedPay, and additional UM/UIM (uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage) to help protect yourself as you are riding a motorcycle in New Orleans.

  1. Always Wear Protective Gear

Motorcycle helmets reduce the risk of traumatic brain injuries and death. Louisiana law requires all riders to wear motorcycle helmets. The two exceptions to the motorcycle helmet law are when you are riding in a parade, or your motorcycle has supports that provide the same level of safety that a motorcycle helmet would provide.

In addition to motorcycle helmets, you should also wear other protective gear when riding a motorcycle in New Orleans to help reduce the risk of injury in a motorcycle crash. Protective gear includes gloves, boots, motorcycle jackets, vests, and other protective clothing.

  1. Always Be Very Cautious at Intersections

When riding a motorcycle in New Orleans, pay close attention to traffic and pedestrians at intersections. Distracted drivers and pedestrians will cut motorcycles off without notices. When you approach an intersection, slow down and pay attention to traffic and signals. Allow additional room between your motorcycle and other vehicles to increase the distance for avoidance measures. Make sure that you do not drive through an intersection in the blind spot of another vehicle or hidden behind a vehicle.

  1. Contact a NOLA Accident Attorney After a Motorcycle Accident

If you are injured while riding your motorcycle in New Orleans, contact our NOLA accident attorney for a free consultation to discuss your legal rights. After a motorcycle crash, it is important to seek medical attention for your injuries. It is also important to seek the advice of an experienced New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney. An attorney can help you file a claim seeking full compensation for all damages.

Contact Attorney Fred Olinde of The Olinde Firm by calling (504) 587-1440 or 1-800-587-1889 to speak with a motorcycle accident attorney in New Orleans.


Three Common Insurance Company Tactics to Watch for After a NOLA Accident

Louisiana is a “fault” state for automobile accidents. Drivers are required by law to purchase automobile liability insurance to cover damages resulting from a car accident. Liability insurance pays accident victims, but it does not compensate the driver who caused the crash. If you are involved in a NOLA accident caused by another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. To recover compensation, you must prove the other driver caused the crash, and you suffered damages because of the crash.

Before you have the chance to consult with NOLA accident attorneys, the insurance company for the other driver may contact you. If so, you need to be aware of three tactics used by insurance companies that could harm your chance of recovering a fair and just settlement for your accident claim.

  1. The insurance company requests a recorded statement immediately.

If an insurance adjuster pressures you to provide a recorded or written statement, you need to be extremely cautious. Providing a recorded statement or written statement without an attorney could hurt your case. The adjuster will pass the statement off as a simple but necessary step in processing your claim so that you can get your money quickly.

Beware, what you say could be used against you. The insurance company may manipulate your statements to deny your claim or decrease the value of your claim. It is in your best interest to consult with a NOLA accident attorney before giving a statement of any type to the insurance company after a car crash.

  1. The insurance adjuster pressures you to settle the claim without an attorney.

Representatives for the insurance company may tell you that you can save money and settle your claim quicker if you do not hire a NOLA accident attorney. They may tell you that personal injury attorneys only complicate matters and take your money for something you can handle yourself.

Remember, the representatives of the insurance company are not neutral parties. They are not working for you nor do they have your best interests as their top priority. The insurance company wants to limit its liability. It knows that if you consult a NOLA accident attorney, you may realize your claim is worth far more than the insurance company is offering you to settle the claim.

Always take advantage of our free consultation with a NOLA accident attorney to discuss your claim before you sign documents or accept a settlement offer.

  1. Blaming pre-existing conditions for your current injuries.

If the insurance company discovers you have a pre-existing injury or condition, it may argue that your current injury is a result of the prior incident or accident. Insurance companies often obtain this information through recorded or written statements and signed medical releases. For this reason, you want to consult with a car accident attorney in New Orleans before signing any documents, providing statements, or discussing your injuries or medical history with anyone representing the insurance company.

Call a NOLA Accident Attorney for a Free Case Review

Do not allow the insurance company for the other driver to take advantage of your trusting nature. Obtain trusted legal advice from Attorney Fred Olinde and the other car accident attorneys of The Olinde Firm.

Holiday Driving Dangers That Every New Orleans Driver Needs to Know

It is the most wonderful time of the year, or at least it is according to more than one holiday song. However, the holidays can increase your chance of a car accident. Therefore, every New Orleans driver should be aware holiday driving dangers before venturing out onto the roads. Below are three driving dangers associated with the holidays and how you can reduce your risk for a car accident in December.

Holiday Driving Danger Number 1:  Transporting Christmas Trees

Whether you purchase your Christmas tree at a local lot or travel to a Christmas tree lot to cut down your tree this year, you will need to transport that tree home. Unless you have a truck, you will likely tie the Christmas tree to the roof of your car. Unfortunately, falling Christmas trees in one of the common holiday driving dangers that cause car accidents in December.

Some tips that can help you avoid a car accident from a falling Christmas tree include:

  • Use a sturdy rope to secure the Christmas tree to the top of your vehicle.
  • When tying the tree onto the roof of your car, use multiple pieces of rope instead of one long piece of rope. If one rope gives way, the other pieces of rope should hold the tree in place.
  • Do not drive fast. Sharp turns and quick stops can cause the Christmas tree to shift and fall. If the tree does not fall, the shift in weight could cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
  • Place the trunk of the tree at the front of your car to help avoid damage to the tree from the wind while you are driving.
  • Leave the netting wrapped around the tree. The netting makes it easier to secure and transport the tree.
  • When tying the tree to the roof of your car, open the doors and wrap the rope around the car. This method is more secure than just opening the windows to secure the rope.

Holiday Driving Danger Number 2:  Don’t Drink and Drive

The holiday season typically means an increase in the number of drunk drivers on the road. However, these holiday driving dangers can be avoided. Do not drink and drive and do not allow friends or family members to drink and drive. If you are going to a party, you should have a designed driver or make other travel arrangements if you intend to consume alcohol. If you are hosting a holiday event, you need a plan in place to prevent guests from driving while intoxicated. You may want to provide overnight arrangements, a designed driver, or pay for public transportation for guests who over-indulge at your gathering.

Holiday Driving Danger Number 3:  Watch for Pedestrians

As you drive through town enjoying the Christmas lights and displays, you need to make sure that you keep your eyes on the road. It is easy to become fascinated with the holiday displays. However, your fascination could be a deadly distraction. You need to be on alert for pedestrians during the holiday season, especially in parking lots and in areas in which holiday celebrations or displays are located.
