Were you poisoned on the job?

Each person has the right to a safely maintained workplace, and should not have to suffer injuries in order to make a living. However, while some jobs present very real threats, such as those involving large machinery, some workplaces poison an individual through exposure to toxic substances. This might happen quickly in a single incident, but most often it occurs incrementally over time.

Severe brain damage and its potential signs

Louisiana residents who have gotten into a crash need to keep an eye out for any potential brain trauma or injury. Latent signs can appear after the initial impact, and depending on what those signs are, they can help a victim determine whether or not their injury requires immediate medical attention.

Family awarded damages for crash five years ago

Louisiana residents know that motor vehicle accidents can happen at any time but that does not negate the importance of seeking compensation and justice after an accident occurs. Sometimes the path to that compensation and justice may be long but it is important to ensure that people's rights are properly protected and respected.

Misdiagnosis of pulmonary embolism

The outcome of many medical conditions is greatly affected by how quickly the patient receives treatment and care, yet some emergencies in Louisiana often go misdiagnosed. One of the most common of these conditions is a pulmonary embolism. For patients who are experiencing the symptoms associated with a blood clot in the lungs, a misdiagnosis can be terrifying and, in some cases, deadly.

Are Americas's roads getting safer?

Are you one of the many Louisiana residents who often wonders how safe you really are on local roads and highways? Motor vehicle accidents may be a sad fact of life but that does not mean you want to be involved in one. It can be important to see just  how big of a risk you actually face. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers a glimpse into this.

Understanding the doctrine of negligent entrustment

Every year, countless new drivers take to the roads in Lake Charles. While most welcome these new motorists to the road, they likely also understand that new drivers often pose an increased risk for being involved in accidents. Indeed, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that in 2013, despite the fact that teens ages 15-19 only constituted seven percent of the total population in the U.S., they accounted for 11 percent of the total costs for all car accident injuries.
