Car Accidents Archives

Speed, no headlights involved in fatal crash

Most people in Louisiana who drive vehicles do so responsibly and with the awareness that doing so is a way of keeping themselves, their loved ones and even strangers safe. It would be nice for all residents to assume that every other driver on the road takes that same approach when getting behind the wheel of an automobile. Unfortunately that is not always the case as there are many people who drive recklessly or make poor and dangerous choices that put others in harm's way.

Facts and myths about driver's fatigue

When a driver hits the road in Louisiana, they risk facing an issue that commonly plagues drivers but isn't frequently addressed. This issue is driver's fatigue. It's a potentially deadly problem that can be just as dangerous as driving while texting or driving under the influence, even though it gets much less coverage.

Consumers worry that the world is not ready for self-driving cars

Autonomous and driver-assisted vehicles have been a primary focus in the media for several months, especially after accidents that have occurred when the technology was newly released on the streets. Not surprisingly, many people in Louisiana and elsewhere have started expressing concerns that self-driving cars are not yet safe enough to be available to the public. A recent accident involving an autonomous Uber vehicle underlines this point.

Can working a night shift affect your driving?

When you work a night shift in Louisiana, you may not always consider how your job affects your ability to drive home. Sometimes working a late shift may make it more likely that you will be drowsy as you drive home and this may increase your chances of being involved in a drowsy driving collision.

Understanding submerged vehicle accidents

When Louisiana drivers think about car accidents, they usually consider collisions between vehicles. They may not consider what might happen if their car becomes submerged in water during the accident. It is important for people to know what to do if they find themselves in this situation, as well as how this situation can occur.
