Get compensated when harmless fun harms you

When someone is injured in a car crash, they often want to put their crash and their injuries behind them as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this is not always possible-physical injuries take time to heal and emotional scars can take even longer. In the process, the medical bills required to mend both can pile up and end up overwhelming an accident victim. If he or she is the breadwinner of the family, the pressure to make ends meet might make a bad situation worse and cause someone to accept a settlement that they do not deserve. Especially when corporations with big pockets and insurance companies with limitless companies are able to draft legalese that a lay person may not fully understand and drag their feet in the process, accident victims find themselves suffering even more needlessly.

When is a distraction more than harmless fun?

What may seem like harmless fun can often take a turn for the worst when it takes place on the roadways. A simple distraction while behind the steering wheel, such as thinking about what needs to be bought at the grocery store or even turning around to speak to a person in the backseat, can take the driver's mind and eyes off the road for an unacceptable amount of time and turn their car into a dangerous weapon.

Trucking hours regulated to avoid truck driver fatigue

As Louisiana residents hurry to and from their destinations on the road, they may see trucks rushing by them on the highways. The trucking industry is tightly regulated by both federal and state regulation, but truck drivers are often still pressured into driving longer hours for longer distances, becoming a hazard for both themselves and others on the road. A tired, distracted and drowsy truck driver is dangerous on the road and laws exist to ensure a truck that is used to transport necessary materials across state lines, not to become a weapon that weighs thousands of pounds.

Property owner's liability to avoid slips and falls on stairs

Its natural for people to slip and fall-the laws of gravity apply to all of us after all. Some falls, however, can be more dangerous than others. The harder the surface is upon which a Louisiana resident falls and the farther the person is falling, the more likely injuries are going to be serious. One type of slip and fall accident that can be very dangerous both because of the impact of the fall and the surface upon which one lands is falling down a flight of stairs. Given how dangerous an accident like that can be, it is essential that property owners, both private and commercial, ensure their premises are safe for everyone that enters it.
