Whether traveling as a pedestrian, driver or a passenger in someone's vehicle, there is no guarantee that one will safely arrive to his or her destination. Louisiana travelers are always at risk for motor vehicle collisions, although certain issues and circumstances are definitely more dangerous than others. It pays to be aware of the types of situations that most often lead to car accidents, because such knowledge may help increase travel safety.
Every Louisiana motorist (as well as pedestrian) is at risk when he or she travels in or near motor vehicles. Thousands of people suffer injury every year as a result of collision. Victims of some car accidents are fortunate enough to suffer only minor injuries, such as a few bumps or bruises. Others, however, receive emergency medical care for injuries that are moderate to severe.
