Securing compensation from car accidents

After decades of research, experts know that most people who are involved in car accidents are within just five miles of home. This is true across the country, including in Louisiana. Studies also show that most car accidents are avoidable, and they are the result of negligence by one or more drivers.

Dependents can seek recovery for death on the high seas

Many workers in Louisiana are employed in a variety of jobs that take place on the open ocean, including marine shipping, cruise lines and drilling platforms that explore and drill for oil and gas. Like workers on dry land, they can also meet with unfortunate accidents that can take their lives in a flash through no fault of their own.

Lafayette man charged with vehicular homicide, third-offense DWI

Residents of Lafayette, Louisiana, might remember a fatal motor vehicle accident case last month that killed a Lafayette woman. Reports stated that the accused, who was also from Lafayette, was allegedly operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol and his SUV, after running a stop sign, crashed into the woman's four-door car.

Securing compensation after a truck accident in Louisiana

Most Louisiana drivers know that the chances of being seriously injured or killed are much higher in accidents involving commercial trucks, such as tractor-trailers. Because of their size and weight, these trucks typically cause accidents that are much worse than other motor vehicles. Too often drivers and passengers in other vehicles are killed, especially in truck accidents at higher speeds on highways.
