Medication errors not limited to doctor negligence

When some Louisiana readers think of medication errors, their thoughts may automatically go to doctors and nurses as the ones who make the mistakes. However, doctor negligence is not the only cause of these errors. Pharmacists are as fallible as any other medical professional, and they are just as capable of making serious and even deadly mistakes.

Did a driver's failure to pay attention cause fatal accident?

There are certain circumstances under which the probability of being involved in an accident is higher than normal. One of these times is when a vehicle is pulling out into traffic from a parking lot or other driveway. If the merging Louisiana driver is not paying adequate attention to the flow of traffic, a fatal accident can easily occur.

Did driver distraction cause this fatal car accident?

Distracted driving can have devastating consequences. It is the cause of many severe injuries and even deaths on nationwide roadways, including in Louisiana. A car accident that recently occurred on La. 109 resulted in the death of one person, and officers apparently had reason to suspect that distractions caused the fatal crash.

Victims often suffer catastrophic injuries in speeding crashes

Speeding is not only a violation of Louisiana traffic laws, but it can also be dangerous for everyone on the road. The faster a car is going, the greater the force will be if the vehicle collides with another. This often means that the occupants of the vehicles involved could suffer catastrophic injuries -- or worse -- in the impact.

Industrial accidents are caused by any number of dangers

Industrial workers are well aware of the dangers that come with their jobs. Exposure to large machinery, toxic chemicals and other hazards could easily lead to industrial accidents. Any Louisiana worker injured by one of these hazards has legal rights.
