Baton Rouge Personal Injury Accident Risks
Data published by Louisiana State University (LSU) proves that both East Baton Rouge Parish and West Baton Rouge Parish—as well as Baton Rouge itself—see a high volume of motor vehicle accidents.
In the first half of 2020, almost 2,200 injury accidents occurred between the two parishes.
Baton Rouge was the scene of almost 100 fatalities, a quarter of which involved alcohol.
The Baton Rouge Police Department also publishes in-depth vehicle crash data.
Our city is plagued by rear-end collisions, sideswipe accidents, and head-on crashes.
Some of the common reasons cited in the data include drivers making illegal turns, running stop signs and traffic signals, and committing other violations.
Poor road conditions also cause a portion of local injury accidents in our area.

What to Do After an Injury Accident
If you’re in an accident, it’s important that you get to safety, call the police, and seek medical attention, even if you don’t believe you were injured.
Collect information from witnesses and others involved in the accident and take photos with your smartphone.
Regardless of whether you sought medical attention at the accident scene, go to the emergency room or see a doctor immediately for a full evaluation.
Many injuries don’t show symptoms right away, and having an exam is the only way to determine the extent of your injuries.
Seeing a doctor will also provide the basis for your personal injury claim if you do pursue legal action.
Do not provide a statement to the insurance company or discuss any potential settlement offers until you consult a lawyer.
Knowing your options and what the value of your case might be will help you make the right decision for you and your future.
Depending on the details of your case, you could have the right to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and other damages.
