Louisiana driver strikes pedestrian, leaves scene of collision

Drivers and pedestrians each have rights and responsibilities when sharing roadways with each other. Since pedestrians typically sustain more severe injuries in accidents, drivers must be cognizant of their presence on the road. Negligent drivers that fail to do so subject themselves to significant liability.

Motorcycle rider killed in collision at Louisiana intersection


Motorcycle riders are at a heightened risk of serious injury or even death when involved in car accidents. This is largely due to their smaller size and lack of safety features in comparison to other vehicles. It is therefore imperative that both motorcycle riders and drivers of other vehicles sharing the road must exercise the appropriate care when driving near each other.

Truck accident kills 1, injures actor-comedian and others


A truck accident can have a profound impact on victims and the lives of victims. A truck accident in another state, involving a popular chain retailer, recently killed one person and critically injured actor and comedian Tracy Morgan, as well as others. According to a recent criminal complaint filed against the truck driver, he had allegedly been awake for 24 hours when the semi-truck crash took place. The chain retailer that employed the driver, Walmart, released a statement that it was Wal-Mart's belief that the truck driver was working within federal service regulations at the time of the accident. The CEO of Walmart commented that if its truck was the cause, Walmart would take responsibility. The 35-year old truck driver has been charged with vehicular homicide and assault by auto related to the accident.
