Auto accident on college campus injures four pedestrians

Car accidents can happen anywhere in Baton Rouge and across Louisiana, so it is wise for drivers, pedestrians and others on the road to be cognizant of their surroundings. This is even true in locations where there is supposed to be safety such as a college campus. Since vehicles will be operated on these campuses and there are often many people out and about - especially when the weather is pleasant - accidents can involve pedestrians and cause injuries and fatalities. When there is a crash, the investigation is key, but it is also important that those who were affected understand their right to seek compensation for medical expenses and other problems that come about because of the crash.

Driver found after fatal hit-and-run auto accident

When there is a car accident in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas of Louisiana, the drivers involved are expected to stop and render aid to the others who were in the crash. This is especially important when the accident involves a pedestrian. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, a driver might decide to flee the scene rather than wait. Those who were injured or lost a loved one in a hit-and-run auto accident must know they have the right to seek compensation in a lawsuit, specifically after a hit-and-run with a fatality.

Auto accident between school bus and police car causes injuries

On the streets of Baton Rouge, school buses and police cars are commonly present, easily seen and must share the road. While these vehicles serve different functions, it is imperative that they are operated within the law and avoid crashes to maintain safety for everyone. Unfortunately, an auto accident can occur with any kind of vehicle and law enforcement vehicles and school buses are no exception. After an accident with these vehicles, there can be injuries to those serving the community in law enforcement and those on a school bus. All must remember their right to seek compensation in a legal filing for all they have lost.

Louisiana drivers who go out on the road might not realize that there are specific days of the year that are riskier than others.

This information can also be of use after an accident, when those involved or those affected by it consider a legal filing for compensation.

Intoxicated boater seriously injures woman in crash

When the term "drunk driver" is referenced and there is an accident in Louisiana, it is often automatically viewed as involving a car or a truck. However, drivers operating any vehicle can find themselves facing drunk driving charges with people suffering serious injuries and death after a crash. This can include people who operate a boat while intoxicated. For people who have been injured or lost a loved one in a drunk boating accident, there is just as much of a right to file a lawsuit as with any other alcohol or drug-related crash.
