Pay attention to your blind spots while on the road

It's an unfortunate reality that numerous hazards exist on the roadways. Even safe drivers like you can have a hard time avoiding all dangers on the road, and your own vehicle could make it more difficult to travel as safely as possible. In particular, blind spots could increase the chances of an accident taking place.

How common and successful are medical malpractice complaints?

In Louisiana, before a medical malpractice suit can proceed in court, it must be reviewed by a three-person board that has to decide if there is merit to the aggrieved patient's claim. As per state law, the reviewing panel should be staffed with doctors who have expertise in the medical field that is under question. They determine if there was a breach in the standard of care that was being provided to the patient and even though their decision is not binding, their findings can hold evidentiary value in court.

How do you prove negligence in a car crash?

While driving on the street, Louisiana residents have a responsibility to conform to the standards of conduct that are required of them by law. For example, stopping at a red light or stop sign and yielding to oncoming traffic-these rules are in place to protect the wellbeing of everyone on the roadways and when these codes are not violated, a devastating crash can result.

Crash involving car and school bus

There are many rules of the road that must be respected in order to keep the roadways safe for everyone on them. These laws include stopping at a red light or stop sign, driving within the posted speed limit and yielding to oncoming traffic at the appropriate junction. Now that school is back in session, traffic laws also require specific driving behavior around school zones and behind school buses. This includes stopping an appropriate distance behind a halted school bus, as there are children getting on or off the bus at that time. This ensures the safety of the children.
