Are commercial drivers allowed to text and drive?

Drivers of commercial motor vehicles are not allowed to text and drive. In fact, if caught, commercial drivers in Louisiana and throughout the country face the loss of their commercial licenses, significant fines and other penalties. However, the most significant loss is the loss of a life when a driver's inattentiveness causes a fatal truck accident.

Wrongful death claim possible after fatal medical mistake

Hospitalizations and in-patient surgeries can be overwhelmingly scary for patients and their family members. Individuals who suffer from ailments must spend time away from their loved ones to undergo treatments and procedures that are intended to make them well. However, not all New Orleans residents who must stay in hospitals get better. Unfortunately, some hospital patients die while under their medical personnel's care, but not all pass on due to complications from their underlying illnesses.

How is liability determined in a multi-vehicle crash?

Many Louisiana car accidents happen when drivers are distracted and fail to yield or stop in time before colliding with other automobiles on the road. It is not uncommon for a two vehicle accident to become a three or more vehicle accident when cars, trucks, and vans are driving fast or too close together.

Filing legal claims under the Jones Act

When a worker is hurt while performing work-related tasks, there are a number of laws that may help them request financial support during the time they are unable to do their jobs. However, not all of the laws that protect and support New Orleans workers apply to those individuals whose jobs take them out onto open water. If a worker is a merchant marine, then his work-related injury claims may be covered by the Jones Act.
