Types of Car Accidents
At The Voorhies Law Firm, we handle all types of car accidents – from dangerous rollovers and head-on collisions to all too common rear-end accidents. We also help victims who have been harmed by texting while driving and multi-vehicle collisions.
Even if you crashed while it was just you in the car, we may be able to uncover a defective auto part or another way your single-vehicle accident was beyond your control.
Each year, nearly 10% of fatalities are the result of head-on collisions, 7% are caused by rear-end accidents, and 2.8% are caused by side impacts. In Louisiana, 58% of accidents do not involve a direct collision at all.

If I Am Hit by an Uninsured Motorist, Can I Still Receive Compensation for My Car Wreck?
Unfortunately, many injured victims of car wrecks are unaware that they may be able to recover insurance proceeds even where the negligent driver has no automobile insurance coverage. Uninsured/ underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage may provide a legal remedy for an insured injured victim if the car accident was caused by the negligence of an uninsured driver. It is a good idea to review your automobile policy coverage to ensure that you have this type of coverage, or to find out if you should add it in.
