  • Who is liable for driver’s ed accidents?

    Accidents involving student drivers are relatively rare but can create special liability issues when you're seeking reimbursement for damages. Depending on the circumstances, it may be possible to name three different parties in a car accident.

    Types of Accidents Involving Student Drivers

    Accidents with driver's ed students

    Accidents involving student drivers can involve three different types of injured parties:

    • Injuries to other drivers or passengers in their vehicles. Since the vehicles used in driver's education classes are clearly marked, most drivers will be extra cautious when encountering a student driver on the road. However, accidents can still occur if a student driver makes an error such as pulling out in front of another vehicle, braking unexpectedly, swerving, or turning the wrong way down a one-way road.
    • Injuries to pedestrians or cyclists. There have been multiple cases of student drivers causing injuries to pedestrians or cyclists, since driver’s education classes often begin training students on residential streets.
    • Injuries to people in the student driver's vehicle. Many driving schools will allow several students to ride as passengers in the same vehicle, so they can take turns driving and observing how their peers handle different situations on the road. Driver's education instructors are also at risk of injury in an accident.

    Student Driver Liability

    Although student drivers aren't licensed, they're still supposed to follow the basic rules of the road. A driver who is speeding or running a stop sign can be held responsible for injuries that result, even if he only has a learner's permit.

    Evidence of student driver liability is most easily gathered immediately after the accident. Witness testimony, photographs of the accident scene, and reports from law enforcement can all be helpful in establishing fault and financial responsibility for your injuries.

    Instructor Liability

    Driver's ed instructors have a duty to take reasonable care to prevent accidents. The purpose of a driver's ed program is to allow students to develop their skills alongside an experienced driver who can provide instruction regarding safe driving practices. An instructor who fails to intervene when a student makes a mistake can be held responsible for resulting injuries.

    For example, an instructor might be held liable if he was texting, reading, or otherwise distracted and missed the opportunity to use the extra set of brakes in the car to prevent the accident.

    Driving School Liability

    Driving schools can be held liable for accidents under certain circumstances. The school might be liable if it knowingly hired an unqualified instructor or allowed an instructor to continue working despite evidence of improper conduct. Allowing students to drive a car with bald tires, faulty brakes, or malfunctioning headlights could also cause the school to be held liable for injuries in the resulting accident.

    Many private driving schools carry an insurance policy that covers all students, instructors, and the vehicles involved in lessons. In this case, the school might provide compensation for injuries and property damage even if the accident is determined to be solely the student's fault.

    If your accident involved a student taking a public school driver's ed course, the case becomes more complex. Government agencies such as public schools have added protection from liability under the law. You can still seek compensation, but there will be special rules involved regarding the statute of limitations and additional notice requirements.

    Protecting Your Legal Rights

    When you're involved in an accident caused by another party's negligence, you're entitled to compensation for the damages you've suffered. This includes:

    • Accident-related medical expenses such as doctor's visits, surgery, medication, and physical therapy
    • Anticipated future medical care, if your injuries have left you permanently disabled
    • Lost wages during your recovery
    • Loss of future earning capacity, if your injuries are expected to limit your ability to earn an income in the future
    • Pain and suffering

    Since accidents involving student drivers can involve complex liability issues, enlisting the services of a skilled personal injury attorney is the best way to ensure you receive the compensation you need to move forward with your life. Your attorney will gather evidence, handle any necessary paperwork, and negotiate for the highest possible settlement—leaving you free to focus on your recovery.

  • Can I switch lawyers while my personal injury case is pending?

    If you're unhappy with your lawyer's efforts to settle your personal injury claim, you're within your rights to seek other representation. However, this is a decision that requires careful consideration. When to change lawyers

    Reasons to Switch Lawyers

    Lawyers aren't fortune tellers or miracle workers, so simply experiencing a delay in obtaining a settlement or receiving an initial offer that’s lower than what you were hoping for isn't necessarily a valid reason for seeking new representation. Typically, it's recommended that you use the same lawyer throughout your case unless you have serious doubts about his competence and willingness to advocate on your behalf.

    Possible reasons to switch lawyers include:

    • You feel your lawyer doesn't consider your case a priority. Lawyers are allowed to work on multiple cases simultaneously, but efforts should be made to resolve each one in a timely fashion. If your case isn't making any progress and your lawyer can't explain why, it may be time to seek other representation.  
    • Your lawyer refuses to answer your questions and listen to your requests. Personal injury law is collaborative in nature. Even though you didn’t attend law school, your input is vital to the process.
    • You're being completely ignored. If your phone calls and emails aren't being returned or your appointments are being canceled with no explanation, you may have cause for concern. No matter how busy your lawyer is, a paralegal or an assistant should be available to provide you with a quick update.
    • You've decided your lawyer doesn't have the experience necessary to handle your case. One common mistake people make is using a lawyer they have a previous relationship with who doesn't normally practice personal injury law. Even if your lawyer did a wonderful job handling your divorce, this doesn't mean he's qualified to work on your personal injury case. Every area of law requires different knowledge and skills.
    • You've caught your lawyer engaging in unethical behavior. Any lawyer who advocates lying about your injuries or falsifying evidence can't be trusted to handle your case.

    How to Handle the Switch

    There are several different steps involved in changing representation while your case is in progress.

    1. Determine the cost of switching. Personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means they're paid from the settlement you receive. If you fire your lawyer, he will have a lien on any settlement you collect. He won't get the full percentage you originally agreed on, but he'll be compensated for his efforts. However, depending upon the terms of your original contract, you might need to provide upfront payment before he'll release your case files.
    2. Find a replacement lawyer. It's a bad idea to dismiss your lawyer without first lining up alternative representation. Doing so can create unnecessary delays in getting the settlement you need to pay your medical expenses and being reimbursed for lost wages. However, when you're investigating your options, be honest about the fact that you're looking for someone to replace your current lawyer. Many firms will be cautious about taking cases another lawyer has been working on.
    3. Send your lawyer written notice of your decision to seek other representation. In your letter, clearly and objectively describe the reasons for the dismissal and provide instructions for where to send your case file. It's best to send the letter via certified mail, so you have documentation that it was delivered.
    4. Provide notice to the court. If your personal injury case is currently pending before a court, provide notice of withdrawal or substitution of counsel. Your new lawyer can help you with this process.

  • How do I know if I have a good settlement offer?

    About 95 percent of all personal injury cases are settled without going to trial. However, you shouldn't necessarily jump to accept the first offer you receive. In some cases, waiting and having your attorney negotiate on your behalf will result in a substantially larger settlement. How to know if your settlement is good

    Factors to Consider in Evaluating a Settlement Offer

    A good settlement offer isn't necessarily one that makes you happy. In fact, many attorneys often tell clients a good settlement is one where both parties walk away unhappy. When this is the case, you know a compromise has been made. The negligent driver paid more than he wanted to, but the injured person received less than he was hoping for.

    When determining if the settlement offer you receive is fair, you'll want to consider a number of different variables:

    • Past medical expenses, including emergency room care, specialist visits, surgeries, prescriptions, and rehabilitation
    • Any applicable future medical expenses
    • Loss of wages during your recovery
    • The impact your accident will have on your future earning potential
    • Property loss
    • Emotional distress, including psychological injuries such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD following the accident
    • Loss of enjoyment, if your injuries keep you from engaging in sports or other recreational activities you once enjoyed
    • Loss of consortium, if your injuries have negatively affected your relationship with your spouse and child

    Punitive damages aren't a part of most car accident personal injury cases, but it may be appropriate to ask for this type of compensation if the defendant's conduct is particularly egregious. You might be able to receive punitive damages if the driver had a history of driving while intoxicated, for example.

    Liability Questions and Personal Injury Settlements

    Louisiana has what's known as a comparative fault rule for assessing personal injury claims. A partially at-fault driver can still collect damages, but his damages will be reduced by his percentage of fault. This means a driver who is considered 25 percent responsible for the accident would only receive 75 percent of the amount he'd originally be entitled to receive.

    Since there is no set formula for determining who is at fault in an accident, liability issues should be considered when determining if a settlement offer is fair. If you're a partially at-fault driver, you must consider how your actions would look to a jury if your case went to trial. If the circumstances surrounding the accident are open to interpretation, it may be in your best interests to take the settlement offer and avoid the risk of having a jury come back with a lower than anticipated verdict.

    Your attorney can provide some guidance as to how cases with similar circumstances have played out at trial. However, no two cases are alike. Your attorney can make an educated guess as to the results of the trial, but there's still no way to be certain of the outcome.

    Considering Your Current Financial Need

    Defendants often assume that personal injury plaintiffs can't afford to wait for a verdict. It's common to receive a lower settlement offer early on because the defendant will assume that you're not willing to wait for the case to go to trial.

    If you're able to work and your immediate medical needs have been taken care off, declining a settlement and forcing the case to go to trial may result in a higher recovery. However, if you're struggling financially and worried about resolving your debts, you may decide settling for a lesser amount is worth the trade-off. This is an issue to discuss with your attorney as well as your family.

    Don't Automatically Accept the First Offer

    In many cases, the first offer you receive is a lowball settlement used as a negotiating tactic. How you handle the case from this point is often crucial in your ability to increase your compensation, which is why you want to have a skilled personal injury attorney advocating for your needs.

  • Is a Car Making a Left-Hand Turn Always at Fault for an Accident?

    It's a commonly held belief that a driver making a left-hand turn is always at fault when a car accident occurs. Although the driver is considered responsible in most cases, there are some important exceptions to the rule that you should be aware of if you've been involved in this type of accident. Left-hand turn accidents in Louisiana

    Dangers Associated with Left-Hand Turns

    Since left-hand turns can potentially disrupt the flow of traffic and require the turning driver to accurately judge the speed of the oncoming vehicles, they present a serious safety hazard. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), almost half of the 5.8 million car crashes in the U.S. happen at intersections—with the majority of those involving a left-hand turn. On a similar note, the U.S. Department of Transportation found that 53 percent of crossing path crashes involved a driver trying to make a left-hand turn.

    Depending on speed, weight of vehicles, and whether or not the occupants were properly restrained, left-hand turn accidents can cause injuries such as whiplash, broken bones, concussions, spinal cord injuries, internal bleeding, or organ damage. Victims may also experience psychological injuries such as anxiety and PTSD.

    Possible Exceptions to Liability

    The law states that a driver who is making a left-hand turn must wait to turn until he can safely turn without affecting the flow of oncoming traffic. Therefore, if you made a turn and hit another vehicle traveling straight in the other direction, you would likely be found at fault for the accident. Drivers who cause a collision while making a left-hand turn are often cited with "failure to yield" or "violating the right of way."

    However, there are a few possible exceptions to the presumption of liability. If there is enough room for a driver making a left turn to safely turn and he proceeds after first yielding as required, the driver who is heading straight must yield to the driver turning left.

    Examples of situations in which fault may be shared for the accident if you were the driver making a left-hand turn include:

    • The other driver ran a red light.
    • The other driver had a yellow light and you reasonably believed he had enough time to stop before the light turned red.
    • The collision occurred at the same moment the traffic light turned red.
    • The other driver was speeding or going too fast for the weather conditions.
    • You began turning when it was safe, but something unexpected happened such as an animal or child ran into the road and you had to slow down or stop turning.

    Exceptions to the presumption of liability might be proven by witness testimony, traffic camera footage, and/or vehicle damage reports.

    Receiving Compensation as a Partially at-Fault Driver

    In some states, drivers who are partially at fault for an accident aren't allowed to collect any reimbursement from the other driver's insurance company. However, Louisiana has what is known as a comparative fault approach to processing personal injury claims from auto accidents. This approach allows you to collect compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering from the other driver, even if you were considered to be partially at fault for the accident.

    For example, consider a case in which the driver would be eligible for $50,000 if he played no role in contributing to the accident. If he was determined to be 20 percent at fault for the accident, he loses the ability to collect $10,000 or 20 percent of the amount he'd otherwise receive. Therefore, he receives a settlement for $40,000. As his percentage of fault increases, his eligibility to receive reimbursement for the damages he's suffered decreases.

    It's important to note that Louisiana does not use a set formula to determine percentage of fault. If you have a skilled car accident attorney representing your interests, you can often negotiate a lower fault percentage. This will increase your eligibility for accident-related compensation.

  • What can I do to help my attorney win my case?

    Your attorney's job is to advocate for your needs throughout the process of settling your personal injury claim, but he can't do this alone. To win your case, you and your attorney need to work together as a team. 

    Tell the Whole Story

    For your personal injury attorney to effectively represent you, he needs to understand how the accident occurred. Thus, it’s important that you write down everything you can remember about the accident, striving to tell a story that your attorney can use as the basis of the case. Make sure your narrative includes the following details:

    • The date and time of the accident
    • The road you were traveling on
    • The direction you were traveling in
    • The moment you first noticed the other driver
    • The actions the other driver took before the accident
    • The response, if any, that you made
    • The symptoms you experienced right after the accident
    • The witnesses to the accident

    Be Honest

    As you're communicating with your attorney, remember that honesty is key. If you suspect you may have done something to contribute to the accident, discuss this issue with your attorney right away. Louisiana law allows at-fault drivers to collect compensation for damages they've suffered, although their ability to collect will be reduced by their percentage of fault. There is no specific formula for assigning percentage of fault, so your attorney may be able to negotiate a lower fault percentage and increase your eligibility for compensation if you're honest from the beginning.

    Failing to wear your seatbelt doesn't make you an at-fault driver, so there's no need to lie about whether or not you were buckled up at the time of the collision. Additionally, it’s important not to exaggerate the severity of your symptoms or try to blame the other driver for symptoms related to a past injury. Medical records and expert testimony can sniff out these falsehoods, which means being untruthful is sure to backfire.

    Be Organized

    Personal injury lawsuits require a great deal of evidence and documentation. It’s important that you provide as much of the following as possible:

    • Photos of the accident scene
    • Hospital admitting charts
    • Doctor notes
    • Medical exam and test results
    • Medications you had to take because of the accident
    • Your own diary detailing your injury symptoms
    • Pay stubs to document your lost wages
    • Letters from your employer documenting your absence from work and/or ability to return to your current position
    • Copies of correspondence with your own insurance company and the other driver's insurance company

    If you assist your attorney in locating the necessary information and evidence, it will greatly speed up the process of settling your claim. Many people recommend purchasing an expanding file folder to keep track of necessary documents and a calendar where you can jot down the date, time, and name of anyone you've spoken to about your personal injury case.

    Respond Promptly

    If your lawyer contacts you requesting additional information, always respond as soon as possible. Louisiana personal injury claims must often proceed under tight deadlines. A delayed response could have serious consequences regarding your ability to obtain a fair settlement.

    If you're having trouble locating the information your attorney has requested or are unable to respond right away, reach out to see if there is an alternative to make sure your case proceeds as scheduled.

    Maintain Confidentiality

    While your case is pending, do not speak about your accident with friends, family, colleagues, or acquaintances. If you're not careful, even seemingly harmless speculation could be used as evidence against you.

    It's best to stay silent until your personal injury settlement is resolved. If you're contacted by an insurance adjuster, refer him to your attorney.

    Ask Questions

    There's no need to be intimidated by your attorney or the legal process involved in settling your claim. If you have questions about the way your case is being handled or want clarification on a specific issue, don't be afraid to speak up. Any skilled attorney will be happy to hear your input.

  • What if I have no insurance when I’m involved in an accident that wasn’t my fault?

    All licensed drivers are required to have a valid auto insurance policy to provide liability coverage for any injuries or property damage they may cause. If you're caught driving without insurance in Louisiana, you'll face stiff penalties—including the loss of your eligibility to collect compensation for accident-related injuries.  Car insurance in Louisiana

    Louisiana State Insurance Requirements

    Louisiana state law requires 15/30/25 liability limits. This means a driver must have at least $15,000 in coverage for bodily injury to one person, $30,000 in coverage for bodily injury to more than one person, and $25,000 in coverage for damage to someone else's vehicle or other property.

    Louisiana is the second most expensive state for auto insurance policies in the nation, with younger drivers, men, and people with past blemishes on their record paying the highest premiums.

    Penalties for Driving Without Insurance

    Driving without insurance carries a fine of up to $100 on top of any other traffic violations. You may also find that your registration and license have been suspended and that your vehicle has been impounded.

    If you're involved in an accident, Louisiana's "No Pay, No Play" law will prevent you from being reimbursed for the first $25,000 in property damage and the first $15,000 of personal injuries—even if the other driver is 100 percent at fault for the accident. This "No Pay, No Play" law is similar to legislation in 10 other states.

    As an uninsured driver, any damages you cause to another person will be paid from your own pocket. This means you risk losing assets you've worked years to accumulate as the result of one poor decision.

  • How long will it take to resolve my case?

    Being involved in a car accident can be a traumatic experience. It's perfectly understandable to want to know how long it will take for your case to be resolved. However, this question doesn't have an easy answer.  How long to resolve case

    Variables Affecting Your Case Resolution

    The majority of personal injury claims are resolved within a year, but some cases can go on for several years. Variables that will affect how long it takes to settle your case include:

    • The severity of your injuries
    • How long it takes to complete your medical treatment
    • If it's possible there’s another cause for your injuries
    • If there is reason to suspect you're exaggerating your injuries
    • If fault is being contested
    • The size of the proposed settlement
    • Technical difficulties gathering some of the necessary information to prepare the case
    • Your own willingness to accept a lesser settlement to avoid a trial

    Should You Wait or Settle?

    If you're facing extensive medical bills and are currently unable to work because of your injuries, it's tempting to want to settle your case as soon as possible. However, it's generally best to wait until you've reached maximum medical improvement (MMI). Once a doctor has certified that you've recovered as much as possible, it will be easier to attach a dollar value to the damages you've suffered. This will often result in a larger verdict.

    Seeking Help from a Personal Injury Attorney

    Many people attempt to settle their car accident claim without the assistance of an attorney, but enlisting a professional to advocate for your needs is the best way to speed up the settlement process. A skilled attorney familiar with personal injury law will help you obtain the necessary documentation and negotiate for the maximum possible compensation.

  • What is the difference between a claim and lawsuit?

    When seeking reimbursement for your damages after a car accident, it's important to understand the difference between an insurance claim and a lawsuit. Additionally, it’s helpful to know the benefits associated with having an attorney to represent your interests throughout the process. Insurance claims and lawsuits

    Filing an Insurance Claim

    In most cases following an accident, you'll first attempt to file a claim against the at-fault driver's insurance company. Your claim is simply a formal notice that you wish to be reimbursed for your injuries and/or property damage relating to the negligent driver's actions. However, if you've been injured by a hit-and-run driver or a driver with no insurance, you'll be filing a claim against your own insurance company to utilize the benefits of your underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage.

    If you've retained the services of an attorney, he will send a letter to the insurance company that states all communication relating to the claim should go to his office. This means you'll be able to let your attorney handle the negotiation process and focus your energy on recovering from your injuries.

    Filing a Lawsuit

    If the at-fault driver's insurance company misses the deadline to respond to your settlement offer and the one-year statute of limitations for Louisiana personal injury lawsuits is approaching, your attorney will likely recommend litigation as the next step.

    The lawsuit process will involve filing a petition with the court and having your lawsuit served on the defendant. Once this has been completed, you'll make depositions, request records, and secure expert testimony as part of the discovery process.

    Most personal injury lawsuits involving car accident claims don't make it to trial. The attorneys for both sides are often able to negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement before the case is scheduled to appear in front of a judge.

  • How does a car accident case work?

    After being injured in a car accident, you're probably eager to get compensated for your injuries and move on with your life. However, it's often difficult to predict how long it will take to resolve your personal injury claim.  How a car accident case works

    Timeline of a Personal Injury Lawsuit

    If you decide to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, here's a brief outline of what you can expect if your case makes it all the way to civil court:

    1. Immediately after the accident, you seek medical treatment and obtain all recommended follow-up care.
    2. You hire a personal injury attorney, who will most likely work on a contingency fee basis.
    3. Your attorney investigates your claim and reviews your medical records. He will review accident reports, interview witnesses, and possibly conduct his own investigation.
    4. Your attorney, with your approval, will make a demand for settlement to the other driver's insurance company or his attorney. Your attorney will then attempt to negotiate a settlement that meets your specifications.
    5. If a settlement is not reached, your attorney files a lawsuit—keeping in mind your state's statute of limitations. In Louisiana, you have one year to file a personal injury lawsuit following a car accident.
    6. Each side investigates the case during the discovery process, and all parties have a chance to review legal claims and defenses. This includes testimony regarding the severity of your injuries as well as whether it's possible you are partially at fault for the accident.
    7. Mediation and negotiation begins as the attorneys for both sides try to settle the case without involving the judge.
    8. If the attorneys for the two sides are unable to reach a settlement, the case is scheduled for trial. Depending upon the judge's schedule, the case could be delayed one or more times before the trial actually begins.

    The vast majority of personal injury cases do not make it to trial. Most are settled at some point between Step 4 and Step 7 of the timeline listed above.

  • What happens if I was involved in a hit-and-run accident?

    Car accidents involving hit-and-run drivers present their own unique challenges when it comes to obtaining reimbursement for damages. In many cases, hiring an attorney to advocate for your rights is the best way to ensure a fair settlement after this type of accident. If you're involved in a hit-and-run

    First Steps

    After a hit-and-run accident, you'll be asked to provide as much information as you can to help law enforcement attempt to locate the driver. Providing a license number or a detailed description of the car or driver is ideal, but even a partial plate number and a few identifying characteristics can be helpful.

    Witnesses often prove valuable in helping to locate the driver, so try to get names and contact information for as many witnesses as possible. Even those who think they didn't see anything of significance might be able to provide information that proves important.

    Seeking immediate medical attention is crucial after a collision with a hit-and-run driver. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, you want to create a written record associated with the accident. Remember, many car accident injuries start off as minor discomfort and become more obvious as time passes.

    Paying for Damages

    If the police are successful in locating the other driver, you can collect from his insurance or other applicable assets. However, if the other driver can’t be located or he doesn't have insurance or assets, you'll need to seek reimbursement under your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) policy.

    Louisiana law requires all companies offering auto insurance to provide drivers with UM/UIM coverage unless it has been specifically rejected in writing. This means that the majority of drivers within the state will have coverage for their losses.
