Who is Liable Following a Car Accident?

Home » FAQs » Who is Liable Following a Car Accident?

In Louisiana, civil courts determine which party is liable for damages following an accident. Civil courts may find multiple parties liable for the cause of your car accident, making certain parties responsible for different percentages of damage.

It is possible that you could be found responsible for partial causation of the accident. In this case, the court may still award you with some of the compensation from the opposing party’s damages.
