Fishing trip ends in a fatal accident on Louisiana 928

It is summertime, children are out of school and more people are out and about. On a recent afternoon, a father, his two children and two other men were fishing down an embankment off Louisiana 928. None of them had any way of knowing that this fishing trip would end in a fatal accident.

Details of car accident involving firefighter still sketchy

Louisiana State trooper witnesses fatal accident

Most Louisiana drivers understand that in order to safely navigate the roadways, they need to pay attention to their surroundings and anticipate obstacles. Sometimes, however, even when a driver does everything right, a serious or fatal accident can occur. This is often due to other drivers not following the same rules that everyone else does.

Motorcyclist suffers catastrophic injuries in accident

Every driver in Louisiana is responsible for paying attention to the road and following the traffic laws. When a motorist fails to do either, he or she may breach a duty of care to those around him or her. Depending on the circumstances, when a duty of reasonable care is breached, passengers in the same vehicle and others on the roadway could suffer mild to catastrophic injuries.

Louisiana woman files medical malpractice claim

In some cases, the failure to diagnose an illness in a timely manner -- such as when symptoms first present -- could end up causing a patient irreparable harm. Like cancer, there are many diseases, viral infections and bacterial infections that could easily be treated if they are caught in time. Otherwise, they could have devastating consequences the longer they go without treatment. A medical malpractice claim recently filed by a Louisiana woman claims her condition worsened due to doctor negligence in diagnosing her illness.
