A warm summer Louisiana evening was upended recently after a violent incident occurred. The fatal accident left one man dead and another under arrest. Now, police are investigating to determine what other criminal charges, including DWI, will be issued.
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.
With summer weather all around, countless individuals may take to the open waters for relaxation and fun. You might also be one of the many who enjoy the pleasures of recreational boating and leap at every chance you get to go. Unfortunately, there is also a certain level of risk involved in this means of transportation, especially if negligence is present.
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.
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.
