Metairie Fatal Wreck Attorney
One of the best ways to succeed in a car accident case is to take immediate action. The scene and the damage should be photographed. Witnesses should be tracked down and interviewed while their memories are still fresh. Any injuries should be meticulously documented. For example, vehicle burn evidence and patterns must be preserved.
Glenn C. McGovern works closely with our clients to make sure every detail is captured, so he often investigates accident scenes himself to understand which factors may have caused the car crash. When appropriate, he consults accident scene reconstructionists to determine fault.
Handling Defective Car Accident Claims in Louisiana
Sometimes, car defects are known to cause catastrophic and fatal car accidents. Defective seat belts, air bags, tires and fuel tanks fail to work — either causing collisions or failing to protect accident victims.
One prime example of this is the work we did on Crown Victoria Police Interceptors with rear-mounted fuel tanks, which caused fire explosions. Many other cars have defective fuel systems, such as Ford Mustangs and Jeep Cherokees, that are known to kill or seriously injure accident victims. A quick onsite inspection and preservation of the vehicle is critical to our success. We will immediately preserve the evidence in product liability cases to determine the cause of catastrophic accidents.
