Truck crashes into school bus, injuring a number of students

Being aware of changing road conditions is just one of the signs of a responsible and careful driver. Another important aspect of being a good driver is being aware of traffic laws, including those relating to speed limits and stopping near school buses. These laws are enacted for the safety of the children onboard, as they are usually getting on or off the bus at bus stops, and keeping a safe distance behind them ensures everyone's well-being. When someone does not adhere to these rules, catastrophic accidents can be the result.

Stages of a personal injury lawsuit

As discussed previously on this blog, when a Louisiana resident is injured in a car accident, they may be able to recover compensation from the negligent driver who caused the crash through a civil suit. The idea of going through a trial may seem overwhelming to many struggling to come to terms with their injuries, but an experienced attorney may be able to guide them through the process by explaining the stages of the trial to them.

Who can I sue in a medical malpractice suit?

When one walks into a hospital in Louisiana and greets nurses, doctors and surgeons, they are most likely to assume that they are all employees of the hospital. However, this is not the case in most situations-many healthcare providers are considered independent contractors in the eyes of the law and not hospital employees. When and why does this matter? It is important because it affects liability in medical malpractice cases.

Helping you take action following medical malpractice

When we are ill or injured, we are quick to rely on modern medicine to assist us. Individuals in Louisiana and elsewhere have much faith and trust in medical professionals, and for a good reason. They are educated, trained and skilled at diagnosing and treating patients. Nonetheless, doctors, surgeons and nurses are humans and subject to human errors. This means a mistake could happen during diagnosis, treatment or a surgery, causing a patient to suffer a new or a worsened condition.
