In Louisiana, more than one party can be at fault for personal injury. This is known as comparative fault (link Louisiana Laws – Louisiana State Legislature). All of the facts and evidence are taken into account. Each at fault or negligent party is then assigned a percentage of fault. The amount recoverable would be reduced by that percentage, but the injured party may still recover.
This is why contacting an experienced car wreck attorney immediately can help. A personal injury attorney will know what evidence is needed and what evidence must be preserved in order to prove another party was fault also and still liable to pay for any damages.
