Hours of service restrictions violated in truck accident

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) imposes strict regulations on truck drivers. One of those regulations specifies how many hours drivers may be on the road without taking rest breaks in an attempt to ensure that they are not fatigued while driving. A violation of these restrictions could lead to a serious or fatal truck accident here in Louisiana.

Medical malpractice and failing to meet the standards of care

Every medical professional in Louisiana is required to meet certain standards of care when treating and/or attending to patients. When those standards are not met, it is the patients that suffer. If you or a member of your family suffered an injury at the hands of a doctor, nurse or other member of staff, it could be considered medical malpractice.

Impairment suspected in car accident, 1 killed, 1 injured

Every decision a Louisiana driver makes while behind the wheel affects not only that driver and any other occupants of the vehicle, but also everyone else on the road. When one of those decisions is to drink and drive, the impaired driver makes the choice to endanger the lives of everyone else without considering the consequences. A major consequence is the probability of a drunk driver being involved in a car accident that leads to injury or death.

Catastrophic injuries result from wrong-way car accident

Science tells us that when two opposing forces collide directly, the results are typically devastating. One of the most tragic examples of this scientific truth comes from head-on collisions that take place here in Louisiana. Catastrophic injuries are often the result of these crashes due to the force of the impact.
