4 Louisiana officers suffer personal injury escorting president

Unusual circumstances can lead to unusual accidents. Unusual accidents can be confusing for victims to sort through the aftermath of insurance claims and workers' compensation when an injury on the job occurs. Four Louisiana deputies suffered personal injury after participating in a motorcycle escort for President Trump.

President Trump was traveling through Cameron Parrish to check on the progress of the Sempra Energy's LNG project. The first phase of a $10 billion project was recently completed. The venture involves trains and the first of multiple trains has been completed.

During the motorcycle escort, a crash occurred when the officers were crossing Broad Street on Interstate 20. The details of how the accident occurred have not been reported, and it is not known if any civilians were involved. Four officers were injured and all four have been treated. Despite the report that one of the officers suffered a serious injury, he is expected to survive.

Anyone who suffers personal injury in an accident may find it difficult to sort out the details following the crash while managing pain, therapy and follow-up doctors visits. Louisiana attorneys understand the hassle following an accident and are equipped to assist victims with understanding how to proceed. Victims may be able to file claims against negligent parties, or against their own insurance carriers if negligent parties do not have insurance. In cases such as this one, where the accident may have occurred while on the job, victims may qualify workers' compensation insurance benefits, which attorneys can also advise how to handle. Depending on the details of the accident, some victims may also be able to consider third party personal injury lawsuits to help cover financial losses.
