What Laws Apply to Auto Accidents in Louisiana

Learn what law applies to auto accidents in Louisiana from experienced Lafayette personal injury attorney, Bennett Boyd Anderson, Jr., of Anderson, Dozier, Blanda & Saltzman.


"Boyd Anderson: Hi, I'm Boyd Anderson, a lawyer in Lafayette, Louisiana. We're often asked, what law applies in Louisiana to auto accidents. In Louisiana, you're entitled to a recover if you're injured through the fault of another. You're entitled to recover both general damages, which consist of pain and suffering, mental anguish, past, present, and future, as well as special damages, which includes past and future medical expenses as well as lost wages.

Importantly, in order to recover damages, you have to be totally in the right. What I mean by that is, in the event that you are at fault, let's say 50%, then your recovery is reduced by 50%. In Louisiana, you need experienced personal injury lawyers if you're involved in an 18-wheeler or auto accident.

Please contact my firm, Anderson, Dozier, Blanda & Saltzman. We've been doing this type of work for over 90 years."

Client Reviews
Finding yourself in the middle of a personal injury case is not a pleasant experience. I could not have been more blessed than to have Mr. Boyd Anderson represent me in that difficult time. He treated me and my family with respect and earned my complete trust. Mr. Anderson is an extremely skilled attorney and did an exceptional job with my case. His support staff, Tammy and Donna, are also amazing to work with. They are very thorough and took care of every detail, so that I could concentrate on healing. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Boyd Anderson to family and friends. Angie T.
Boyd Anderson, along with his associates and staff always keep you in the know. He is very personable, offers great advise and he saw my suit to the end personally. It’s very rare that an attorney personally responds back to emails and calls. Not to mention the accolades, experience and expertise is top notch and really impressive. I would definitely recommend this firm to anybody if they are serious about winning. This firm gets the job done and exceeds expectations. Shantele J.
With the plethora of advertisements one sees nowdays, it's difficult to discern just who is best qualified to represent you if you need legal assistance. An overabundance of tv commercials does not necessarily point one in the correct direction. When I needed help, I choose Boyd Anderson and his firm. Best decision I ever made. Superlative service throughout the legal process...and I very much appreciated the prompt attention to details I suspect other firms would have probably overlooked. Anderson's team and experience made a huge difference in my exceptional group of professionals...for sure. Paulette P.
