Lake Pontchartrain Accident Sends One Car into Lake

A four-vehicle pileup on the 24-mile bridge that connects Jefferson Parish and St. Tammany Parish resulted in one vehicle and its occupant falling into Lake Pontchartrain. Fortunately, emergency workers on the scene rescued the occupant from the lake with no serious injuries. The occupants of the other three vehicles did not report serious injuries as well.

Multi-vehicle accidents usually become problematic when trying to ascertain fault and apportion liability. Insurance carriers may refuse to assist if they claim that you were partially responsible for the accident, which may leave you with astronomical medical bills and other costs. If you are involved in an accident of this nature, you should immediately consult an experienced personal injury attorney who can assess the accident and protect your rights.
