Can I Pursue Damages Even If I Was Ticketed After My Motorcycle Accident In New Orleans?

You may be able to pursue a damage claim after a motorcycle accident even if you received a ticket for a violation in New Orleans.

The specific facts of your accident will matter a great deal in determining the best approach for your case, but a consultation with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney should be your first order of business.

There are a number of situations where a motorcyclist may be forced to take action to protect themselves that technically puts them on the wrong side of a statute.

When an aggressive driver is bearing down on you, you may have to speed up or change lanes suddenly, for instance.

It’s easy to end up with a ticket when there’s been an accident.

The police will often issue tickets to all parties unless the situation is crystal clear to them, but that doesn’t mean you can’t recover for losses like hospital bills, damaged property, lost wages, and future medical costs.
