Louisiana firm fighting to impose liability on negligent truckers

Last week on the blog we discussed how trucks should operate in hazardous conditions. When truckers in Louisiana fail to drive safely in wet, icy or foggy conditions, they can lose control of their vehicle and cause a devastating truck accident. Victims of these tragic wrecks can be subjected to extensive losses that can leave them physically, emotionally and financially damaged.

Poor driving during hazardous conditions leads to truck accidents

Many factors go into driving a semi-truck safely in Louisiana. As this blog has discussed in the past, trucks must be properly maintained, and truckers must ensure that they are sober and well-rested. But this just scratches the surface in regards to trucking safety. One of the most important things truckers can do to ensure safety is adjust their driving according to current weather conditions.

The true cost of spinal cord injuries

Although a car accident in Louisiana can occur in a split second, the resulting effects of it can last a lifetime. This is particularly true for those who suffer serious injuries. A head injury can cause brain damage, leaving a victim with permanent disability and the need for long-term care. The physical limitations and emotional damage caused by this harm can be extraordinary, but the financial loss can be utterly debilitating.

Medical malpractice claim filed after nerve damage suffered

Louisianans go to the doctor expecting to receive medical care that effectively treats their condition. Yet, in order to receive adequate care, medical professionals have to take the proper steps. A medical condition must first be properly diagnosed, then a course of treatment must be defined, and, lastly, the treatment must be carried out correctly and safely. A mistake during any of these steps can lead to a worsened medical condition, leading to further harm or even death.

Help is available to pursue products liability claim

Residents in the Lafayette area of Louisiana who have suffered adverse consequences of pharmaceutical and medical devices that physicians prescribed may not know where to turn. If you are facing mounting medical bills for complications following such treatment you may find comfort in knowing that your legal rights are protected by the Food and Drug Administration that regulates the safety of medical devices, drugs and food.

Admiralty law as it relates to death at sea

As this blog has discussed in the past, working on a seafaring vessel can be quite dangerous. Vessel owners in Lafayette are expected to keep their ships in a condition that is safe for their employees, but sometimes they fail to uphold this bargain. When this happens, injuries can result that leave workers with medical expenses and lost wages. Fortunately, these hurt employees can utilize admiralty and maritime law to file a lawsuit against their employer seeking compensation for their damages.
