Distracted driving: There's an app for that

The good news is that Louisiana drivers are getting the message about the dangers of texting and driving. The bad news is that they are not learning the same lesson about apps. It seems as if safety advocates win a victory over one distraction only to have another take its place.

Helping you file a personal injury claim after an accident

No one ever expects to get involved in a serious accident. But the unfortunate reality is that individuals in New Orleans and elsewhere partake in daily activities that place them in harms way. Whether it is at work, shopping at a store or driving on the road, risks and dangers are all around us. Even more so, negligent actors are around us as well. And when we encounter a negligent person, we could be harmed in a workplace accident, slip-and-fall accident or a car accident.

What does a medical device recall look like?

As a previous post noted, medical devices are often a necessary product in the lives of Louisiana residents. Although these items serve a vital role, some problems can arise. A malfunction could occur, causing a defective medical device. While this situation could result in little to no harm to the patient using the medical devise, a malfunction could generate a dangerous product that could cause serious injury or even death. Thus, a recall is usually issued in these situations.

Defective medical devices and products liability suits

Residents in New Orleans have a broad range of medical needs. In some cases, this goes beyond just surgeries and medications. Some patients require the assistance of medical devices to help them with ailments and conditions. While these devices can be very effective and necessary, they do not always work as intended. In some unfortunate cases, a defective medical device could cause harm and risk the life of a patient.

Is your slip-and-fall accident really your fault?

If you fell while in a Louisiana store, business, private residence, on a public sidewalk or other place, you were probably embarrassed and ready to just get up and move on as quickly as possible. It is easy in the moments after an accident to assume that it was your fault, perhaps caused by inattentiveness or clumsiness, but in reality, you may not be to blame. A slip-and-fall accident can be painful and traumatic, but you do not have to face the aftermath alone.

Unfortunately, the negligence and carelessness of some property owners can lead to such situations. Even more so, when visitors, patrons and customers enter these properties and interact with a dangerous condition, it is likely that they will suffer serious injuries and damages.
