Boating can be a leisurely and relaxing activity that individuals or families can enjoy. Operators of boats must not lose their focus on the water, however, as doing so could lead to unnecessary dangers and result in serious injuries.
Everyone knows that riding a motorcycle carries risks. For some Louisiana motorcyclists, that risk is part of the appeal. However, these thrill-seekers also know that with careful driving and proper training and equipment they can avoid getting into many types of accidents. Unfortunately, even the most skilled and prepared motorcyclists still must share the road with drivers who are not so careful.
Drivers of motorized scooters experience the same dangers encountered by motorcycle and bicycle riders in that they are smaller than other vehicles and they lack the same protections and safety features. For this reason, riders are more susceptible to serious injuries when involved in an accident.
After a fatal traffic accident caused by a negligent driver, Louisiana families look to the police and the criminal courts to see that justice is done. However, the criminal justice system - despite its many strengths - is not necessarily the best place to see the needs of the victim's family are met.
