Some auto accidents involve defective or poorly repaired parts

Each part of a vehicle works with the others in order to keep it moving and operating properly. If certain parts of a vehicle are defective or poorly repaired or maintained, the delicate balance can be upset and lead to motorcycle, truck or auto accidents on Louisiana roadways. The results of these crashes could include severe or fatal injuries to the unsuspecting occupants of these vehicles.

Fire presents an additional danger in auto accidents

Predicting what will happen during a motor vehicle collision is nearly impossible. Unexpected consequences arise in many auto accidents, and one of them is fire. When vehicles catch fire, the occupants face an additional danger that could cost them their lives. Fire more than likely contributed to the death of a Louisiana man in a recent crash on Interstate 10.

Some victims initially survive auto accidents only to die later

Even when family members are notified that a love one was involved in a serious crash here in Louisiana, they rejoice in the fact that he or she is, at least, alive. They might retain hope that their family member will walk out of the hospital someday. Unfortunately, far too many victims of auto accidents end up succumbing to the injuries they suffered in those wrecks days or weeks later.

Finding witnesses to deadly single-auto accidents is challenging

Some crashes have no witnesses when those involved die from their injuries before police arrive. This makes the job of troopers with the Louisiana State Police challenging since, other than the physical evidence left behind, they must take on the task of attempting to determine what factors led to these auto accidents and the events that precipitated them. This could be the challenge currently facing troopers and investigators in the aftermath of a single-vehicle crash that ended two lives.

Distracted driving auto accidents take the wheel in April

This month highlights the dangers of distracted driving. Many activities behind the wheel take a Louisiana driver's attention off the road, which leads to numerous auto accidents. Of course, texting and driving has gained attention as being one of the most dangerous distractions in modern society.

Some people who initially survive auto accidents die later

Many Louisiana families are given hope by the fact that a family member survived a crash, even if he or she suffered serious injuries. Sadly, that hope can be taken away when that loved one dies later. The unfortunate fact is that some people who initially survive auto accidents later succumb to their injuries.

Fatal auto accidents involving children leave voids in families

Louisiana parents send their children off to school each day, expecting them to return unharmed at the end of the day. Sadly, that does not always happen. When children die in fatal auto accidents, it leaves voids in their families that can never truly be filled.

Louisiana's fatal alcohol-related auto accidents are dropping

Even though far too many families lose loved ones on Louisiana's roadways every year, any lives that are saved could be considered a victory of sorts. That is why the news that ignition interlock devices are helping lower the number of fatal alcohol-related auto accidents in the state is good news. These devices are designed to keep drivers who have been convicted of driving under the influence from doing it again.

Impairment is suspected in many single auto accidents

When Louisiana law enforcement officers arrive at the scene of a crash involving only one vehicle, they often suspect that either alcohol or drugs impaired the driver. During the course of the investigation, testing is often done to determine whether this was the case. As it turns out, those suspicions are confirmed in a number of single auto accidents.

Fatalities often result from motorcycle vs. auto accidents

Many Louisiana residents enjoy riding motorcycles despite the fact that they are more vulnerable to serious or fatal injuries in the event of a crash. The sad truth is that fatalities often result from motorcycle vs. auto accidents. The question becomes whether the circumstances of a particular accident lead to criminal charges against the auto driver, along with civil actions filed by surviving family members.
