There are many daily distractions in a Louisiana resident's life. A major distracting pressure is cell phone use. People constantly feel pressure from their friends, family and work to stay connected. Cell phone use is rightfully not always welcomed, however, particularly when it creates negligent drivers.
Employment is often at the center of most Louisianan's livelihood. Individuals look forward to working, particularly if their employment offers them the ability to sustain and maintain their lifestyles. Of course, the foundation of an individual's livelihood can all too often be shaken up by an accident. An accident can make working impossible or cause an indefinite delay in income.
There are many different things happening immediately following car accidents. Some people call the police, some take down the other driver's information and some contact their insurance company. These are often the preliminary thoughts when a minor accident occurs. In the situation of fatal accidents, the action taken may involve more complex issues.
There are a number of different individuals and entities that may be responsible and subject to liability for car accidents that occur on the roadways. In particular, a recently filed lawsuit demonstrates that even Louisiana police can be defendants in a lawsuit in which a plaintiff seeks to recover damages for injuries resulting from a car collision. Three Louisiana prisoners filed the lawsuit. It is against the Orleans Parish sheriff's office. The prisoners claim that they were injured in an accident while being transported by the police.
The Louisiana authorities report that the holiday season is one of the most dangerous times of the year on the roadways. This year is no exception, as there have already been several fatal accidents.
