Traffic in Baton Rouge has gotten horrible since the influx of people who came here after Katrina — and it hasn’t improved at all. Bumper-to-bumper conditions on I-10 and even local routes are common, but most residents have gotten used to planning for this and still use safe driving practices. Unfortunately, there are still drivers who think that it is best to try to cross multiple lanes of traffic at the last second.
If you are involved in an accident in Baton Rouge or the surrounding parishes, you might decide to seek financial compensation. This can help you reduce the financial impact that the crash has on you and your family. To initiate the process, you must file a claim for damages. We can help you to get this taken care of in a timely manner.
