Drunk driving poses threat to everyone on the road for NYE

Well, here we are. New Year's Eve is this weekend. Whether you live in Louisiana, Michigan, Maine or Washington, Americans throughout the country will be celebrating the holiday with cheers and champagne. While a majority of Americans will be responsible and will either not drink, find alternative modes of transportation, or have a designated driver, there will still be a few irresponsible drivers out there who get behind the wheel while intoxicated, and will jeopardize everyone on the road with their negligence.

Protecting your rights when injured by a driver without insurance

It's bad enough to be injured by a careless or negligent driver. It's even worse for the injured party when he or she finds out the driver who caused the wreck did not have insurance. Driving without insurance is illegal in Louisiana. Unfortunately, there will still be people who ignore the law and remain uninsured.

Study says Louisiana drivers are among the nation's worst

There is no question that the state of Louisiana does a number of things better than other states. The waterways are a paradise for boating and fishing. The live music is unmatched anywhere in the country. The food has no equal. And then of course there is Mardi Gras.

Car accident injuries can be slow to develop

After an auto accident in Louisiana, it is common for each driver to ask the other driver if they are hurt. Initially, car accident victims might think they are not hurt right after a crash. However, they may find a few hours, days or even weeks later that they actually have suffered an injury.
