Too many motor vehicle accidents happen on this section of I-10

Interstate 10 is considered one of the most dangerous roads in America. One section of it, though, located in the state of Louisiana, is particularly bad. So bad, in fact, that it has been named "Dead Man's Curve." Over the years, numerous motor vehicle accidents have happened in this spot; sadly, some have proved fatal.

Birth injury: Family in another state to receive millions

When a child is born with impairments due to the actions or inactions of medical providers before, during or after the labor and delivery process, it can leave parents devastated. A birth injury affects not only the long-term health and well-being of the child, but it can also have severe emotional and financial consequences for the family as a whole. Louisiana residents with children who have suffered birth-related injuries due to medical negligence may be able to seek relief for their losses. A family in another state did, and they will be walking away with millions, which will definitely help them get their child the care he needs for many years to come.

Louisiana wrongful death: Car crash claims 1 life

A car crash that recently occurred in Lake Charles claimed one life and left one other person with significant injuries. This event occurred in the early morning hours of Jan. 8., and involved two vehicles. According to Louisiana laws, if negligence contributed to this event, the surviving family members of the deceased, as well as the surviving victim, may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses by pursuing wrongful death or personal injury claims, as applicable.

Proposed law changes affect victims of motor vehicle accidents

Anyone who has been involved in a serious car accident knows just how damaging such an event can be. Along with any physical injuries, there are emotional and financial consequences one may not have expected. The cost of recovery and moving forward can be high. Unfortunately, if certain proposed laws are enacted, victims of motor vehicle accidents may not be able to get the compensation they need to truly cover their losses.
