Two individuals’ lives have been snuffed out in a tragic motor vehicle collision in Louisiana. The accident took place during the late hours on a Saturday night. Two automobiles were involved in the fatal crash, which occurred at the intersection of two state highways.
How the accident apparently happened
The recent Louisiana crash took place at the location where Louisiana Highway 1097 and Louisiana Highway 95 intersect. According to police, a 44-year-old woman was driving east along Louisiana Highway 1097 but failed to stop at a stop sign upon reaching Louisiana Highway 95. As a result, a 53-year-old man who was driving north along Louisiana Highway 95 allegedly struck her car.
The impact of their collision reportedly caused their cars to leave the roadway. The man was pronounced deceased at the accident scene. Meanwhile, the woman was taken to a medical center for the treatment of her injuries but ended up dying from her injuries. Authorities continued to investigate the cause of the crash.
How an attorney can help following fatal wrecks
The loved ones of the man who died in the recent Louisiana accident have the option of filing a wrongful death claim, seeking the reimbursement of financial damages sustained in the crash. Even though the woman who allegedly caused the crash by blowing through the stop sign died in the wreck, the man’s surviving family members may still file a suit against her estate. They may also sue anyone who has an ownership interest in the car she was driving when the accident occurred. A case that is successfully litigated might lead to damages to cover the man’s burial expenses and even support for his surviving dependents moving forward.
