The attorneys at Gaar Law Firm have seen the terrible results of car accidents every year. Many Lafayette residents receive grave injuries like spinal cord and brain injuries, as well as fractures, all due to car accidents. Sometimes the car accident victims even succumb to their injuries. In such cases, many victims and their family members often consult personal injury attorneys in order to initiate a personal injury lawsuit against an insurance company or an uninsured driver.
For a Louisiana parent, sending your child off to school comes with many questions. Perhaps one of the most asked questions is "how will my kid get to and from school?". Many parents rely on public transportation or transportation offered by the school, like a busing system. But like any option, school buses are not always the perfect solution and may not quell parents' fears that their children will be involved in car accidents.
With the wave of new technology, there has been a new wave of distractions for drivers. Louisiana drivers, like drivers throughout the country, are constantly checking their cell phones and other technological devices. These distractions cause them to take their eyes off the roads and leads to more car accidents.
Accidents on the Louisiana roadways are never expected. They can arise under a number of different circumstances, including fairly unusual ones. Drivers should be alert when driving in order to respond to car accidents, and also be prepared to follow-up in the event that they suffer any personal injuries in such accidents.
There are many requirements that a Louisianan must satisfy in order to get a driver's license. Most requirements are common knowledge: an individual must be at least 16-years-old, and the new driver must pass both a written test and an actual driving test. Other requirements are perhaps less obvious, but consistent with the greater purpose of all of the requirements, which is to help prevent against car accidents.
Louisianans probably do not try to predict if and when they will be in involved in an accident. It is even more unlikely that they imagine that they might be involved in two car accidents in a given day. Still, nothing is impossible and being ready to respond to such unbelievable possibilities is essential.
One Louisiana man is dead and another injured after a head-on collision. The deceased driver was ejected from his car in the accident. Car accidents in which drivers or passengers are ejected from the motor vehicle are unfortunately not unusual. Individuals who suffer injuries in such car crashes can usually file lawsuits to recover for the damages that result from them, but much depends on the specific facts of the case.
