Customer sues car dealership; blames salesman for injuries

On July 15, a customer filed suit against a Louisiana car dealership, claiming that the injuries he suffered as a passenger were caused by a salesman who crashed the car into a curb. In the lawsuit, which was filed in the 24th Judicial District Court, the man seeks an undisclosed amount of compensation for damages that include lost earning capacity, lost wages, medical costs, pain and suffering, and mental suffering and anguish.

According to the report, the incident occurred in Gretna as a Ray Brandt Nissan car salesman drove the plaintiff in one of the vehicles. The plaintiff said that the salesman caused him to suffer serious, incapacitating injuries after the car went over a curb. In his suit, he is accusing the defendant of failing to properly and timely apply the brakes, failing to maintain control, careless operation, failing to maintain a proper lookout and inattention.

Whenever a motorist operates a vehicle in a careless or reckless fashion, he or she puts others at risk of suffering severe injuries that can be debilitating in nature. Neck, back and head injuries, for example, could cause a person to go through years of rehabilitation in an effort to return to normalcy.

Accident victims in similar circumstances may be able to pursue restitution for their accident-related losses through the assistance of a local attorney experienced in personal injury claims. By thoroughly analyzing the official accident report and reviewing eyewitness accounts, an attorney might be able to prove that the driver caused the accident through an act of negligence and is thereby liable for damages like medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
