Interstate and Highway Accidents in Baton Rouge

Car Wreck Attorney64 plus car wreck settlements

Highways and interstates are common locations for car accidents due to their higher speed limits and the amount of traffic traveling through them. Baton Rouge residents are likely familiar with the main highways and interstates that run through our city, including US-90, I-10, and I-20. Merging onto these high-speed roads can be tough, and this is often where accidents happen.

Accidents on these interstates and highways can be large, affecting more than two vehicles, simply because of the fast-paced, high-volume nature of interstate driving. This can actually complicate the process of filing a claim. 

An expert highway and interstate accident attorney would be able to help you sort through the important details of your accident and handle the interactions with the opposing parties’ insurance companies. 

The Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys team in Baton Rouge can provide this assistance and more. Contact us for a free and confidential consultation.

What factors can contribute to interstate and highway accidents?

There are many reasons that an accident could happen on an interstate or a highway. Each factor has different circumstances and could affect how you are compensated if you are the victim of such an accident. 

  • Speeding Drivers- Drivers on the interstate are often tempted to drive over the speed limit. This is dangerous to everyone on the road. Even driving the speed limit during bad weather conditions can negatively affect a driver’s ability to control the vehicle and cause an accident on the interstate.

  • Tailgating Drivers- Tailgating is a form of aggressive driving, and tailgating drivers are those who are following too closely behind another vehicle. These kinds of drivers can cause highway accidents involving multiple cars if they are unable to stop when they need to.

  • Distracted Drivers- When drivers are focusing on anything other than the road, they are risking being the cause of an interstate or highway accident.

  • Truck Drivers - Large trucks are notorious for having blind spots. When car drivers remain in the blind spot of a large truck for too long, they are in danger of an accident with the truck.

  • Tourists- People who aren’t familiar with driving along Louisiana highways and interstates can make mistakes, causing accidents. What should I do after an interstate or highway car accident?

  • If you are the victim of an accident on a Louisiana interstate or highway, you should get out of danger, get medical attention, call the police, and document the damages, if possible. Then, you should call an interstate and highway car wreck lawyer to help you through the process of recovering any compensation you are due.
