Shreveport Louisiana Hit and Run Accident

Per NEWSBREAK and other local news outlets, authorities discovered an overturned Dodge Charger that ended up on the railroad tracks at the 4500 block of Mansfield Road. When authorities arrived on the scene the driver was gone. All rail traffic was suspended until the vehicle was safely removed. An investigation is underway and authorities say alcohol may have been involved.

In addition to accident above, two 26 year old men were killed in a fatal car crash that took place today, just a few hours ago. Once again, authorities believe impairment or alcohol contributed to the crash. As we move into this long holiday weekend, and after going through the devastating Ida storm, drunk drivers will be out on the roads.

We also want to let you know that it’s a good idea to watch out for drunk drivers and to be extra careful over this Labor Day weekend.

Seek Medical Attention Right Away

First things first, we highly advise ALL accident injury victims to seek medical attention right away. Number one, you have just been involved in an auto accident and you may be in shock. Even if you don’t feel hurt or show injury symptoms right away, you could still be very hurt. Your best bet to protect yourself and your health is to be examined by a medical professional. Again, go seek medical attention and make sure you get checked out by a doctor right away.

Number two, insurance companies are NOT your friends. Too often, they try to deny legitimate auto accident injury claims. Car accident lawyers need medical evidence that your injuries are linked to the crash itself. If you do not go to the doctor right away, and insurance company could try to use that against you. They may claim there is no way to know if the injuries you are suffering from are from the accident, or if you hurt yourself AFTER the accident.

Point being, go to the doctor and get checked out.
