How significant is distracted driving in Louisiana?

Cellphones are ubiquitous in today's society. People of all ages, from teenagers to seniors, use cellphones not just to make phone calls, but to send and receive text messages, post on social media, get directions and so much more. In fact, many people in Louisiana and across the nation these days may wonder how they ever got on without their cellphones.

Use of heavy weaponry could lead to traumatic brain injury

Our nation's service members deserve to be honored for the sacrifices they make for our country. Service members from Houma and nationwide have risked their lives to protect our nation. However, they could suffer injuries as a result, including injuries caused by the weapons they use.

Pure comparative fault may apply to car accidents in Louisiana

When a person in Louisiana is involved in a motor vehicle collision, the events that led up to the accident can be multifaceted. Of course, one party may have breached their duty to drive reasonably under the circumstances when they collided into the victim's vehicle. For example, they may have been drunk, they may have been speeding or they have run a red light at an intersection, causing them to crash into the victim's vehicle.

What are the elements of a wrongful death suit?

The loss of a loved one can be a life-changing event. People in Houma who lose a loved one due to an illness or old age will experience a great deal of grief and in some cases financial hardships as they move on without their loved one in their life. However, this transition may be especially difficult if their loved one's passing came not from natural means, but due to the actions of another person.
