What are the traffic laws in Louisiana?

In Louisiana, the laws and regulations addressing car accidents are detailed and categorized under distinct sections.

These include guidelines on general road usage, the protocols for giving way, and the proper procedures for making turns and coming to stops.

There are specific stipulations concerning speed and maintaining control of the vehicle, along with vigilant lookout practices.

Laws are also in place for various types of collisions, such as rear-end, left-turn, and accidents occurring when a vehicle enters a road from a side street or a highway, or intersects at a junction without traffic lights.

Additionally, there are regulations regarding the use of seat belts during accidents and the legal ramifications of leaving the scene of an accident, commonly referred to as hit and run.

The Kervin Law website extensively covers various aspects of car accidents, providing detailed information on topics such as laws specific to car wrecks in Mandeville, claims related to auto property damage, and a range of specific accident scenarios including rear-end collisions, left turn accidents, incidents without traffic light control, and more.

Additionally, the site addresses legal considerations for pedestrian, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and bus accidents.

Beyond these topics, it also delves into broader related areas such as workers’ compensation, insurance issues, personal injury laws, and several niche areas like construction accidents and product safety. 

Mandeville is one of our favorite areas and we particularly enjoy the Lakefront area.

We own a house on Goldenwood Street in Mandeville (Tanglewood subdivision), and I personally know that Mandeville has a lot of busy traffic, especially near the Whole Foods shopping mall. 

I was once rear-ended when driving down Florida Boulevard heading towards Highway 190 during the Christmas season rush a few years ago.  This was in front of the old K-Mart (which I really miss!).  Traffic was crazy busy that day and a crash was bound to happen with everyone rushing around trying to shop.

After getting out, inspecting the vehicles and talking to the other driver, I decided to not file an insurance claim against her because I wasn’t injured and my vehicle wasn’t damaged.  But I saw that accident happen because I watched the girl in my rear view mirror run into the back of my truck

Car wrecks in Mandeville can be caused by different types of negligent acts.  The driver may be inattentive, he might be distracted while looking at his phone, or he might be speeding.

I want to note that a car crash can cause injuries that are “hidden” in a sense because you might not know about the injuries until you get scanned by an MRI.

Just because you feel okay immediately after a collision does not mean that you were not injured.  You may have latent injuries that only specialized imaging equipment can reveal.

For example, an MRI can scan your soft tissue for bulging or ruptured discs that don’t show up on X-rays.

Things to Remember if You Have Been Injured in Car Accident in Mandeville:


      • Get immediate medical attention if needed.

      • Call the police and provide a detailed and thorough account of the car crash.

      • Get the Item Number and Crash Report Number so that your attorney can order what is called the “Uniform Crash Report.”

      • Get the at-fault driver’s insurance information such as their insurer’s name and policy information so that we can contact them and file a claim

      • Call Kervin Law for a free consultation so we can advise you of your rights and duties and help you get the compensation you deserve.

    Should you tell the other driver your insurance limits?

    The answer to this question is generally speaking, “no.” You are simply required to show proof of insurance coverage at the time of the car accident and nothing more.

    Who investigates the car crash?

    The Mandeville police or Louisiana State Police will usually investigate a car wreck within their jurisdiction. However, the investigation usually just involved taking each driver’s statements, any witness statements and a simple diagram and narrative of what happened. This is known as the Uniform Crash Report.

    The problem is their investigation may not be enough to settle the liability dispute. This may require the work of an attorney and an accident reconstruction expert.
