Child car accident victim suffers several injuries in hit and run

Drivers in Baton Rouge and throughout Louisiana must be vigilant about pedestrians as they cross the street. Drivers who fail on both ends can cause injuries and fatalities in car accidents. It is also important that after an accident, they stop their vehicle, render aid, if necessary, call for emergency services and give their information to any victims. Those who are driving and commit a hit-and-run will not only face the aftermath of any injuries or deaths that occur, but also criminal charges. And, victims must be aware of their rights to seek compensation in a legal filing after such a crash.

Legal assistance is crucial after commercial vehicle accidents

Simply looking out of a window in Louisiana, and it is easy to see the number of commercial vehicles that are on the road. Sharing the road with these large vehicles that are frequently moving at a high rate of speed can be intimidating. In some cases, it can be downright scary. Since these trucks, buses and taxis are so common, integral to the economy and being able to travel efficiently, there is no eliminating them. Along with that will come the inevitable accidents. Those who have been injured in a crash with a commercial vehicle should remember their rights to seek compensation in a lawsuit.

Horrifying underride crashes almost always preventable

When you see images of the worst, most catastrophic collisions between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles, you may see vehicles damaged in an underride collision. These crashes occur when a smaller vehicle ends up underneath the larger commercial truck. The passenger vehicle often ends up crushed or may even have the top sheared off. The potential injuries to the occupants often prove fatal in these crashes.

Louisiana drivers who are paying strict attention to their surroundings will be watching for other vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians and anyone else who comes into their vicinity. Other factors that can cause an auto accident include the weather or an unexpected issue with an automobile. Road hazards due to a negligent driver might not often be considered, but are a variable that can cause severe car accidents and result in serious injuries and death. When there is not an immediate knowledge as to what caused the road hazard, it becomes even more important for the injured person and the family of a person who might have died in an auto accident to have legal help.

Pedestrian-auto accident numbers maintain high levels

Any auto accident in Baton Rouge, throughout Louisiana and across the nation can be dangerous, but some of the worst kinds of crashes involve a pedestrian. Because pedestrians are totally vulnerable and do not have the protection accorded by being in a vehicle of their own, they can suffer from catastrophic injuries and be killed. The number of pedestrian accidents is recorded by researchers and government agencies to see if there are issues they should be concerned about.
