Bicyclist killed in drunk driving accident where driver fled

When there is an auto accident in Baton Rouge, the initial investigation will consider whether a driver was operating his or her vehicle under the influence, was distracted or if there was another circumstance that contributed to or was the outright cause of the crash. With a drunk driving accident, it is often not just the initial crash that can cause a problem, but the actions of the driver in the aftermath if there is an attempt to flee. Those who have suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one in this type of accident should consider all their options to seek compensation.

Failure to yield to motorcyclist leads to fatal Louisiana crash

One of the foundational aspects of people remaining safe when on the Louisiana roadways is adhering to the law and exercising caution. One law that is crucial for keeping motorists safe is yielding when they have the right of way. This is especially true for drivers who encounter motorcyclists. Because motorcyclists are deprived of the protection afforded to those in conventional vehicles, they can suffer serious injuries and death in a crash. When this happens, they and their family members should consider the necessity of filing a lawsuit for compensation.

Drunk driver arrested after hitting and killing pedestrian

When pedestrians are walking in Louisiana, there is a constant risk of being injured or killed by a motor vehicle. In some cases, uncontrollable circumstances lead to the crash. In others, the accident happened because of a drunk driver. When a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle, there can be severe injuries and loss of life. A legal filing is frequently the only way a family can be compensated for all they have lost.

Study examines days and times when car accidents are more likely

Drivers, pedestrians and anyone else on the road in Baton Rouge and throughout Louisiana must be cautious every day of the week. However, there are certain days of the week and times of day that are more dangerous than others, and people should be vigilant about that. Research examines these factors to determine the risk and to craft strategies to make the roads safer. Knowing this information can also be useful if there is an auto accident and the victims or their families would like to consider a legal filing for compensation.

Statistics highlight auto accident risks linked to days and time

Studies into the frequency and causes of an auto accident examine various aspects. All might be important to a Louisianan who has been affected by an automobile accident, whether it is with injuries or losing a loved one. Some issues that are not often considered, such as days of the week and time of day, could be important factors. One such study sought to examine these factors to gain a better understanding of these incidents.
