OSHA says company exposed workers to industrial accidents

Many Louisiana industrial workers would agree that their jobs expose them to injury often enough without their employers contributing to the problem. This is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration establishes rules and regulations that employers are required to follow in order to reduce the known hazards to their employees. Every industry accepts that certain risks come with the job, but when a company is made aware of safety hazards and continues to exhibit a flagrant disregard for its workers, industrial accidents are bound to happen.

Toxicology results lead to arrest in fatal accident

When police suspect that a driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of an accident, a toxicology sample is taken in order to determine whether those suspicions were correct, and if so, how impaired the driver was at the time. It can take a significant amount of time for those results to get back to officials. For instance, troopers with the Louisiana State Police only recently received back results from a sample taken after a fatal accident that occurred in May, which led to the arrest of the 24-year-old driver for vehicular homicide.

Drunk driver blamed for the loss of 9-year-old in fatal accident

Selfish is one of the words people use to describe those who get behind the wheel of a car when they are impaired. This is because drunk driving accidents are some of the most preventable on Louisiana's roadways. There are many people each year who might still be alive or uninjured had it not been for the decisions of impaired drivers to put everyone in jeopardy by driving under the influence of alcohol. Some fatal accident victims who die at the hands of drunk drivers are children.

Hit-and-run turns into fatal accident

When Louisiana drivers fail to stop after they cause collisions, they are not only attempting to avoid responsibility, but they also may not be aware of the devastation their actions caused. An accident that begins as a hit-and-run involving only two vehicles can lead to a second, deadlier crash. Police say that is what happened in a recent fatal accident.

1 dead, 1 in critical condition after early morning car accident

Every day, Louisiana residents put their lives into the hands of someone else when they get into a car as a passenger. They rely on drivers to pay attention, follow the traffic laws and not get into a car accident. When that faith is misplaced, passengers run the risk of suffering severe or fatal injuries.
