Auto accidents can cause lots of personal as well as property damage to both the parties involved in the crash.
There are diverse laws underlying this and here are some specifications of Louisiana auto accident laws.
An overview of the laws:
- Louisiana is a direct action state and so the injured party is allowed to name the insurance company directly in the lawsuit.
- There is no need of a pre-law suit and a one year statute of limitations follows.
- The judges consider the comparative negligence principle before suing an individual.
- The minimum insurance limit required in the state is pretty low.
