Alleged medical malpractice leads to Louisiana man's death

Going to the hospital can be stressful for anyone. After all, we've all heard horror stories about medical treatments gone wrong. We wish that we could tell Louisianans that such gruesome tales are mere fiction, but the fact of the matter is that medical malpractice occurs more frequently than many care to think. Sure, most doctors and nurses perform their jobs competently, but it only takes one fatigued, inattentive, or reckless medical professional to leave an individual with serious injuries. In the worst cases, unsuspecting patients die due to negligence.

Firm seeking to impose liability on negligent property owners

There are a number of daily activities that shouldn't pose a danger to Louisianans. Driving to and from work, going to the grocery store and crossing the street should all be relatively safe activities. Yet, far too often the negligence of another leaves unsuspecting and innocent individuals seriously harmed. This is unfair and unacceptable to those who were undeservedly hurt. These victims, who may be facing the reality of financial hardship and physical pain and suffering, should consider whether taking legal action against the negligent party who harmed them will help them get back on their feet.

Breast cancer diagnosing and medical malpractice

Nearly everyone in Louisiana has been affected by cancer in one way or another. It can be a terrifying diagnosis that leaves individuals fearful for their own and their families' futures. Fortunately, advances in medical technology and research have enabled medical professionals to more efficiently and effectively diagnose and treat certain types of cancer. Those who are able to receive these treatments may increase their chances of survival as well as their chances of living a normal, healthy life.

Tips for drivers to avoid motorcycle accidents

Louisiana is a great place to ride a motorcycle. The weather is often warm and the roads are often wide-open. And riding a motorcycle can be relaxing, fun and even economical. Riding a motorcycle safely, though, actually requires extensive knowledge of safety procedures. Yet, even those motorcyclists who do everything in their power to ensure they ride safely are susceptible to a motorcycle accident when they are exposed to negligent drivers. Far too often these inattentive, distracted and intoxicated drivers turn what would otherwise be safe Louisiana roads into dangerous paths of destruction.

Eyes on the road, hands on the wheel

It is no mystery anymore that allowing other activities to distract you behind the wheel of a motor vehicle is dangerous. Nevertheless, drivers persist in allowing their devices to divert their attention from the critical business of watching for others on the road. If you are recovering from injuries you suffered in an accident with a distracted driver, you know the pain and frustration that often result from this kind of selfish behavior.

Louisianan sues nail salon for premises liability

Visiting a business should be a pretty uneventful activity. After all, many of us do this on a daily occasion. One reason why it seems like a minor activity is because the law seeks to protect business patrons from dangerous property conditions. Under Louisiana law, customers are considered invitees to a business, meaning that business owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are free from hazardous conditions. If dangerous property conditions exist, then they should be quickly identified and remedied. In the meantime, customers should be warned of the existing hazard.
