Hit and run leaves bicyclist dead, driver arrested

A man is in jail on charges of hit-and-run and vehicular homicide after a deadly pedestrian accident in a Louisiana town about an hour from Baton Rouge. The arrested driver of the car who struck and killed the victim has a history of drunk driving, and police are investigating to see whether he was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

What injuries are frequently suffered in a motorcycle accident?

Owning a motorcycle can be exciting. Riders may take their bike out on a nice day to commute to work or even take a long ride with other bikers. Regardless of the reason for getting on a motorcycle, it is clear that riding one presents some dangers. For example, not all motorists take the time to locate potential motorcyclists traveling around them. Thus, a simple maneuver such as changing lanes on the highway could be life-altering for a motorcyclist struck by a negligent driver.

Regulations seek to address fatigued truck driving

Drivers in Louisiana frequently share the roads with large commercial trucks. Whether it is the middle of the day or the middle of the night, semi-truck and tractor-trailer trucks can be seen traveling long and short distances across the state. A major concern regarding truckers is fatigue. Because drowsy driving is very dangerous and can pose many risks on the roadways, federal regulations have been passed to address this concern.

Helping clients recover a favorable award following a truck crash

Large commercial trucks maintain an important role in society. Any motorist in Louisiana can attest that it is fairly common to share the roads with semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks. While it is commonplace to see these massive vehicles on the roadways, this does not make it any easier for motorists to travel near them. Commercial trucks do not operate the same way as smaller vehicles, which is why they require special training by truck drivers to properly maneuver them. Nonetheless, some truckers operate their vehicles without the proper training, drive while overworked and fatigued, and trucking companies often overlook federal trucking regulations in order to make timely deliveries. These situations could lead to a serious or even fatal truck accident.
