If you are the victim of a crash caused by a big rig, you may be looking at a complex legal matter because several parties may share responsibility for the accident.
Following a car crash, you may have to deal with a driver who wants to simply give you cash at the scene to not get insurance companies or the police involved. Some people may try to do this because they drove without any auto insurance or because they have too many points on their driving records.
Car accidents happen every day. Some people have to deal with minor fender benders while others have to contend with serious injuries, such as one person airlifted from the scene following a nasty crash that left one dead in Louisiana.
If you have suffered an injury in a car accident, your first concern should be seeking medical care and ensuring you make a full recovery. In addition to this, you may also worry about repairing or replacing your car and addressing issues such as lost wages and future damages. An insurance company will likely approach you under the guise of helping you resolve these issues.
There are numerous misconceptions surrounding legal action in the aftermath of a crash. One such misconception is that you cannot file a lawsuit against another party if you were partly to blame for a crash.
Head-on collisions are some of the deadliest kinds of motor vehicle accidents in Louisiana. The kinds of injuries that can result from such accidents vary as much as other accidents, but they can be far deadlier.

Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that is particularly dangerous for truck drivers. Despite the risks, the federal government recently scrapped a plan to test truck drivers for the disorder.
As a motorcyclist, you know how fun it can be to go for a ride. Whether you are just doing some driving around the city or you take Highway 90, it is always important for you to prioritize your own safety. Your motorcycle does not afford you as much protection as drivers have from their cars.
