Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Louisiana
Each year, thousands of people die as a result of pedestrian accidents across the United States. Here in Louisiana, we see many people die in pedestrian crashes as a result of motorists who are negligent. We see many innocent pedestrians killed by drivers who are speeding, those who are distracted by their cell phones and other objects, and drivers who simply engage in reckless actions while behind the wheel.
