A Christmas Day 2014 multi-vehicle interstate highway accident northwest of New Orleans provides a clear example of how auto accident cases are not always what they may initially seem. What started out, allegedly, as a pair of straightforward collisions ended up involving multiple additional parties, reconventional demands, and third-party demands. Your injury case, like many things in life, may be unpredictable, which is why you should always be prepared and have skilled Louisiana car accident lawyers on your side from the start.
The injuries that led to litigation in this instance took place along Interstate 10 in Jefferson Parish. According to the complaint filed by the original plaintiff, Eldridge, a vehicle driven by Max rear-ended him. That impact allegedly spun Eldridge’s vehicle such that it came to a stop perpendicular across two lanes of traffic on eastbound I-10. A motorcycle driven by David subsequently passed through the area and allegedly hit Eldridge’s vehicle. The impacts resulted in Eldridge suffering injuries.
