Louisiana driver's medical condition may cause car 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.

Two accidents in one night culminate in Louisiana man's death


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.

Louisiana man injured in motorcycle accident


Although most Louisiana residents can never fully prepare for an accident, they are typically more equipped to handle unforeseen situations when they are closer to home. They are likely to have more resources available in that type of situation, and when unpredictable events, like car accidents, occur out of state the approach may be totally different and require the consideration of alternative remedies.

Car and ATV accident results in serious injuries to minors

When people think about motor vehicle collisions that occur in Louisiana, the first thing that comes to mind is usually an accident involving two cars. But, there are many ways in which car accidents may occur. For instance, accidents can also involve all-terrain vehicles.

Deadly accident in no passing zone


It may not always be obvious why certain traffic laws are in place. For example, no passing zones may seem frustrating, particularly on long stretches of one-lane roadways. These traffic laws do have a purpose, however, and are often implemented based on statistics to help avoid car accidents.

Two Louisiana children injured in car accident


There are many different toys and games on the market in Louisiana. Sometimes the potential dangers posed by these toys may not be obvious. A recent story involving two young Louisiana children reminds the community to be vigilant about children at play -- particularly when they are operating motorized toys, such toys may expose them to harmful situations like car accidents.

Louisiana school bus accident goes unreported

Most people are unlikely to be forthcoming about wrongdoing when involved in an accident. A Louisiana school bus driver's recent delay in reporting a minor accident underscores drivers' hesitations to report or provide additional information about car accidents.

Pickup truck drives into house in Louisiana

Car accidents can happen any time, anywhere and can sometimes cause unusual injuries and damages. A story that recently received local media attention reminds Louisianans of the dangers associated with the careless operation of motor vehicles. Identifying the potential dangers early on can help individuals recognize all of the different injuries and damages for which they can recover following a car accident.

There may be more cell phone deaths in Louisiana than reported

Cell phones have become an integral part of Louisiana society. Although it sometimes seems like individuals cannot function without their cell phones, it may be time to consider whether cell phones are overused in certain situations. This is particularly true in driving situations; especially since cell phones are one cause of car accidents.

Police cite over 20 drivers who fail to follow train warnings

Six years ago, the St. Landry Parish police started conducting a safety exercise organized by Operation Lifesaver Union Pacific C.A.R.E. (Crossing Accident Reduction Education). The exercise aims to ultimately reduce car accidents with trains. The public is aware of the exercise and appears to be more cautious around railroad crossings in recent years. Of course, there are still drivers, including bus drivers, who fail to follow all of the relevant laws.
