Plaintiff names multiple defendants in NOLA car crash case

When a person gets injured in a car accident, they may have legal recourse against multiple parties. If another driver was involved in the accident, that driver might be held legally responsible for any damages suffered as a result of the accident. Furthermore, if something on private property, like signage or lighting, somehow contributed to the accident, the owner of that property may also share in the legal liability for the accident-related damages.

For example, a person recently filed a lawsuit in New Orleans that involves more than one defendant. In the filing, the plaintiff alleged that a driver in another vehicle struck the plaintiff's car on the passenger's side causing unspecified injuries to the plaintiff. In addition, the alleged car accident victim also named various entities affiliated with Tulane University because the car crash occurred on the University's property. The plaintiff also named an insurance company as a defendant in the lawsuit. The complaint asks for an unspecified amount of damages.

In many car accidents, various parties are partly responsible for causing the accident. Under Louisiana law, injured victims can take legal action against any party who may have contributed to the accident's cause. Thus, as in this case, victims should be sure to assert legal claims against all possible defendants.

Although cases like this can become complicated, an experienced personal injury attorney will be able to sort through the details and competently fight for the compensation a victim deserves. This might include money for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
