Slips and falls increase in winter weather

While much is said about winter weather creating dangerous conditions for motorists on the road, not much attention is given to the injuries caused by people slipping and failing on another's property due to rain, ice or snow. An injury suffered on someone else's property may have been avoided if the person responsible for maintaining the property had corrected the condition, which is why the owner or possessor could become liable for an injured Louisiana resident's injuries through a premises liability claim.

Truck driver causes chain accident, kills 1

It might come as no surprise to many that driving a truck is more difficult than driving most other forms of motor vehicles. This is because of the size and weight of the truck. When braking, it takes more time to stop and when turning, it takes more space and time to maneuver. Trucks also have bigger blind spots, which is why motor vehicle drivers are advised to maintain a bigger space between vehicles. A crash with a truck, especially an 18-wheeler, can be catastrophic, especially for motorists whose car is smaller in size and more likely to become damaged, injuring those inside.

Dangerous driving behaviors can place your safety in harm's way

When you first set out to obtain your driver's license, you may have endured numerous hours of studying in preparation for the test. However, as time goes by, the knowledge you obtained during your training may slip through the cracks, and you might develop a variety of driving habits over years of traveling Louisiana roads.

Teen drivers more likely to be involved in car crashes

It may not come as a surprise to most Louisiana parents that teenagers do not possess the same cognitive abilities as a person in their twenties or thirties, much less a middle-aged person. They also are more likely to give in to impulses and get distracted faster. This is probably why parents are hesitant to hand over the car keys to their newly licensed drivers and why it is imperative to remind the newly minted drivers of their obligations on the roads.

What are the common signs of nursing home neglect?

There are a number of different reasons that Louisiana residents can decide to put a loved one in a nursing home, but mostly all of them revolve around the fact that they want to give their family member the skilled care and attention they require in their old age or in a compromised health situation. Even when someone thoroughly vets a nursing home and its staff, it is still possible that nursing home neglect can occur. That is why it is important to recognize the signs of nursing home neglect.

Don't navigate an injury alone

Embarking on a journey through the legal system can be difficult and complicated for Louisiana residents, especially if they have been injured by someone else's negligence. What may have started out as a fun shopping trip with friends or a meal out with family can end up contributing to serious injuries if the person in charge of keeping the premises safe has not exercised the caution they were supposed to.
