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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A Louisiana woman recently walked away with only minor injuries after a train hit the truck in which she was driving. Car accidents involving collisions with trains typically do not end with such little damage. When they do, however, it is important for individuals living in Louisiana to be familiar with the law as it relates to train accidents so that they can maximize their recoveries.
