Truck accidents and employer liability

The truck driver who is driving the vehicle that may have caused a Louisiana resident's injuries in a truck accident is not behind the wheel only to further his or her own interests. They are usually driving the truck for their employer, which is why the employer may also be held liable for serious injuries resulting from the accident through the doctrine of respondent superior or vicarious liability.

3 common distractions that can affect driving

Distractions can affect anyone at any time of the day. You may find yourself sitting at your desk at work trying to concentrate on a project only to realize that you have been thinking about something else for several minutes. While this type of scenario may not seem particularly distressing, distraction can prove much more dangerous if it happens while driving.

What are the penalties for boating while drunk?

Naturally, many people see the distinction between driving a vehicle-commonly on the road-and a boating vessel-commonly on a body of water-and assume that the distinction means that actions that violate the law pertaining to each mode of transport will be different. However, this is not the case in Louisiana-the law in the state considers driving a boat the same as driving a car and this means boaters who drink and drive also receive a DWI following a recreational boating accident.

Premises liability is an area of personal injury law in which property owners can be held accountable for injuries that occur on their land or in their buildings. Our readers in Louisiana will likely be most familiar with this area of law from the traditional "slip and fall" cases they may have read about or seen in the news.

Car accident results in one death and several injuries

Car accidents are the cause of many deaths and injuries throughout America, and Louisiana isn't immune. Our readers are probably familiar with seeing news coverage of serious accidents that occur on the daily commute, but some accidents can be especially devastating, with fatalities and multiple injuries involved.
