There is seldom a sadder news story than the sudden death of a family member or friend for residents in Louisiana and elsewhere. Unfortunately, this was the case for a former Cenla family that were victims in a fatal crash earlier this month. Fatal accidents can happen at any time and catch otherwise safe drivers completely off guard. After the shock of such an accident the family will need all the love and support possible to get back on their feet.
The worst news of a person's life often comes completely out of the blue on an otherwise normal day. There are few things worse than the sudden death of a loved one. To add insult to injury, the death of a loved one was caused by the negligent actions of a person or third party. In such situations, the family of the loved one may choose to seek a civil action for the death of their loved one related to a negligent car accident in Louisiana.
The screech of brakes, the crashing of glass and the flashing of lights are all sensory images associated with a car crash. Sometimes, accidents leave those involved with no injuries. However, some Lafayette residents are not so lucky. Serious injuries can result from being involved in an automobile collision.
Waterways are all around the state of Louisiana. Usually they are the focus of recreation and fun for friends and family alike. Sometimes they are the location of a workplace, especially for blue-collar workers who work on barges, import docks and the like. Whatever the purpose, waterways are meant to be safe and useable for all residents; however, when an individual is injured, this situation is subject to admiralty law.
The presence of large trucks and eighteen-wheelers are numerous and well known on Louisiana roads. Most people dismiss them as commonplace and are not as aware of the potential danger that these large trucks pose to the average passenger vehicle. The reality is that the sheer size of these vehicles poses a danger to everyone on the road. Such an unfortunate situation occurred to a Louisiana woman when she was fatally injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler.
