Lake Charles Motorcycle Accident Laws

Motorcycle accidents are usually a result of negligence and may cause emotional, physical, and financial distress to victims. As established motorcycle accident lawyers in Lake Charles, we help with filing a lawsuit and getting fair compensation for the damage caused.

According to Louisiana state law,

  • Punitive charges can be levied on the driver if he was drunk or impaired due to drugs. In such cases, the amount received as compensation significantly increases during the settlement.
  • The amount of compensation reduces based on the percentage of fault assigned. This is because Louisiana is a comparative negligence state.
  • Motorcyclists over the age of 18 need not wear a helmet. Furthermore, the absence or presence of helmet is not considered as a factor to impose legal responsibility for a motorcycle accident.
