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.

Drunk driving and pedestrians don't mix

Everyone knows that Louisiana has its share of impaired drivers. As people travel the state's roadways, they know to be on the lookout for a vehicle that could be driven by someone under the influence. Pedestrians also need to remain aware since they have even fewer protections when they encounter someone who is drunk driving.

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.

Louisiana parish offers alternative to those facing drug charges

No one sets out to lose his or her life to addiction. Many Louisiana residents who suffer from addiction end up facing drug charges. Whether those individuals should end up in jail or prison has become a debate among many. In fact, at least one parish instituted a program about 15 years ago to help those who qualify to beat their addictions to drugs and is considered one of the best in the state.

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.

Medical malpractice case against anesthesiologist goes to trial

That was the ruling of a U.S. District Court judge regarding a motion for summary judgment filed by an anesthesiologist in another state. He attempted to have a medical malpractice claim against him dismissed by claiming sovereign immunity because he said he was working for the state at the time of the incident. As might happen in a similar case here in Louisiana, the court ruled that he was not working in that capacity at the time, and ordered that the case go to trial.

How to stay safe while walking in parking lots

You may think car accidents only happen on roads, whether busy highways or winding country lanes. However, parking lots do get their share ofcar-pedestrian accidents. Designers tend to create the lots to be vehicle-friendly and put less focus on walkability and pedestrian safety. Here is a primer on how to stay safe while walking in parking lots.

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.
