The impact of soft tissue injuries and the protections available

Motor vehicle collisions can result in lasting and debilitating injuries to victims. One type of serious injury car accident victims can suffer includes soft tissue injuries, which is why car accident victims should be familiar with these types of injuries and how a personal injury claim for damages can help them with any of these injuries they suffer in a car accident.

The different types of damages for car accident victims

Louisiana residents can suffer injuries in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents and other commercial vehicle accidents. These damages can be severe and can be physically, financially and emotionally costly to victims. Fortunately, personal injury legal options may be available to help injured victims with the damages suffered at the hands of a negligent driver.

What is distracted driving?

Most drivers probably think they have a good idea of what distracted driving is but the reality is that it includes many unsafe driving behaviors drivers engage in every day. It is helpful for drivers to know the dangerous distracted driving behaviors they should avoid and for victims of distracted drivers to be familiar with the legal protections available to them if they are injured by a distracted driver.

Bill to drug test after car accidents moves to house floor

When it comes to the rules of the road and laws everyone has to follow, many don't realize that many of these decisions are based on state laws.

Louisiana is one of the states who does not allow for drug testing of drivers after they have been in involved in a car accident causing industries. Current law says for law enforcement to drug test them only after a fatality has occurred.

Use of cell phones behind the wheel is a growing concern

A previous post on this blog talked about how difficult it is for so many Louisiana residents to put down their phones and focus on their driving. As this post reported, even in the face of warnings and stepped-up law enforcement efforts, almost half of all drivers continued to text and drive, at least on occasion.

Distracted driving: bad habits die hard

According to a recent study of 2,000 drivers, over 1 in 10, 13 percent, said that they would have a hard time putting their phones down while behind the wheel. This is the case even though it has been common knowledge for a long time that distracted drivers, especially those who are texting and driving, tend to cause serious car accidents.

Pedestrian-car accident risk high on LSU campus


Pedestrians are always at risk of being injured in a car accident in Baton Rouge and across Louisiana. Today, drivers are either in a rush to get from one place to the other and ignore basic traffic laws and safety procedures, or are distracted behind the wheel. Accidents happen due to these issues every day. One place where people are supposed to be safe, however, is a college campus and near schools. Unfortunately, the number of vehicle-pedestrian accidents on school grounds is worrisome. This is especially true for Louisiana State University.
