Far too many families have lost someone close due to a fatal motor vehicle accident. Such a loss can be difficult enough to accept under any circumstances, but in car accidents where negligence is present, a family could be left in search of answers, and justice. A recent collision in which a driver veered into an oncoming lane has reportedly claimed the life of a 42-year-old man in Louisiana.
Head-on collisions can be some of the most devastating incidents a person may ever experience. Even if the initial impact doesn't result in injuries, it can leave a vehicle exposed to a secondary crash. Car accidents that occur under these conditions can be catastrophic. A collision that took place under similar circumstances in Louisiana has claimed the life of a 21-year-old woman.
Losing a loved one in a serious collision is something no family should ever have to experience. Should this loss come at the hands of another party, the victim's family could choose to pursue restitution through a wrongful death claim, but they might be uncertain where to turn for guidance in the process. A recent collision has claimed the life of a 59-year-old man after another driver crossed into the wrong lane of traffic in Louisiana.
With all the beautiful places to see in New Orleans, it's often tempting to opt for a walk instead of driving, no matter what the time of year. However, a recent nationwide report may have you thinking twice before taking that stroll. Pedestrian deaths are on the rise across the nation. In fact, traffic accidents claimed the lives of almost 6,000 pedestrians last year, the highest number of pedestrian deaths in the last 20 years.
Whether as a form of exercise, or even a preferred means of transportation, many individuals choose to travel from place to place via bicycle. While there may be numerous benefits to a similar decision, there may also be a certain level of risk involved, as motor vehicle accidents involving cyclists run a higher chance of ending in catastrophe. A recent accident involving a driver who reportedly veered off the road has claimed the life of a 60-year-old cyclist in Louisiana.
