Dangerous driving maneuvers can lead to fatal car accidents

Attempting to pass another vehicle on a two-lane road can be dangerous. Even in areas where oncoming traffic is clearly visible, judging the speed of other vehicles can be challenging, and car accidents that occur under similar circumstances have the potential to end in disaster. A recent collision in Louisiana that took place under similar circumstances claimed the life of a 46-year-old man.

1 in critical condition -- collision blamed on negligent driver

Head-on collisions can be disastrous incidents that endanger the safety of everyone involved. Many individuals have suffered serious injuries in accidents involving a negligent driver. A recent accident that is said to have taken place under similar circumstances in Louisiana has left one person in critical condition, and claimed the life of another.

Motor vehicle accidents involving cyclists can be dangerous

Many individuals in Louisiana and elsewhere choose to travel to and from destinations via bicycle. Cycling offers numerous benefits, such as being a healthy mode of transportation, or even providing one with the ability to avoid traffic jams. However, there is also some level of risk involved, and with less available protection, motor vehicle accidents involving cyclists have a much higher chance of ending in disaster.

Dealing with insurance companies after an auto accident

Louisiana residents pay their auto premiums in the hopes that they never have the need to file a claim. However, when an auto accident does occur, they expect their medical expenses and property damages to be covered. Unfortunately, insurance companies notoriously undervalue claims or outright deny them since they are in the business of making money, and often do not have the best interests of their customers in mind.

Personal injury claim may come after tragic accident in Louisiana

Details are few after a tragic accident left a man dead on a roadway in Louisiana. The crash, like many car accidents in the state, has left authorities with questions relating to what happened and who may have been at fault. Once the determination is made and all of the evidence has been reviewed, the deceased victim's surviving family may find that they have grounds to make a personal injury claim against the driver believed to have been at fault.

Louisiana car wreck may lead to wrongful death claim

One small Louisiana police troop has investigated 18 fatal crashes just this year. Now, they are faced with another such duty as a two-car accident happened recently. In addition, a local man may face charges of wrongful death if police determine that he caused the crash that took a woman's life.

Louisiana parish seeks to reduce car accidents with campaign

Over a 10-day span, one Louisiana parish saw three people die in wrecks. An estimated 90 people have perished in car accidents from 2014 to 2016. Officials in that parish are now working to get the word out about their new campaign to prevent these avoidable deaths.

Man arrested re I-59 crash involving serious injuries, 1 death

Late in 2016, a tragic accident ended the life of one man and forever changed the lives of two other people. Louisiana police just took the driver deemed responsible into custody and accused him of causing the death and serious injuries of the victims involved. The driver is now facing several serious criminal charges.

The importance of uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage

Death and taxes are unavoidable. So is automobile insurance for those who drive a car. Like residents in most other states, Louisiana residents are also encouraged to carry uninsured and underinsured motorists coverage. However, many may be tempted to carry only the required minimum levels of insurance, which could fall short in some circumstances.
