The majority of motorcycle accident cases are caused by other drivers. Generally, if you are operating a motorcycle safely, and within the boundaries of the law , you should receive a maximum compensation award for your accident.
In terms of liability, Louisiana law does not distinguish between a motorcycle accident, car accident or truck accident – all of them require the plaintiff victim to establish and prove that the other party negligently operated his vehicle.
Motorcycle victims tend to receive very high monetary awards. Although this may sound great at first, it is usually because the victim has sustained very serious injuries.
Since motorcyclists sustain these serious injuries to areas such as their head, shoulders, back, neck, hips, spine, knees and skin, it is imperative that victims obtain the best holistic care possible to heal their entire body.
