Truck accidents: 1 dies in crash on 2-lane road in Louisiana

Attempting to pass a vehicle on a two-lane road can be a dangerous maneuver, especially when operating a tractor-trailer. With the increase in length of similar vehicles, judging the time it will take to pass another vehicle can be challenging. Truck accidents that take place under similar circumstances can have devastating consequences, and a recent collision in Louisiana led to the death of an 86-year-old man.

Motorcycle accidents: Collision claims life of off-duty EMT

Motorcycles are inherently smaller than other motor vehicles and are thus more difficult to spot out on the road. This decrease in visibility could pose a threat to the safety of many bikers, as motorcycle accidents can be dangerous and run a higher chance of ending in serious or fatal injuries. A recent collision between a vehicle and motorcycle in Louisiana has reportedly claimed the life of a 42-year-old man.

Wrongful death: Cyclist dies in hit-and-run crash in Louisiana

Leaving the scene of a collision is never advisable and a similar action can carry serious consequences. Victims of a hit-and-run accident can suffer severely, and a delay in medical attention could mean the difference between life and death. A man has been arrested and is facing felony charges following a recent crash that resulted in the apparent wrongful death of a 42-year-old cyclist in Louisiana.

Exhaustion and its effect on truck drivers

Louisiana readers know that commercial truck drivers play an important role in the American economy. They transport goods across the country, and every single industry relies on commercial trucking in some capacity, whether it's delivery of goods, shipment of supplies or other works. Due to the nature of the trucking industry, it is possible that truck drivers could be doing their critical jobs while too tired to drive safely.

Car accidents: Collision injures 1 cyclist, kills another

A 21-year-old man has been arrested and charged with negligent homicide following a recent collision that killed one cyclist and injured another in Louisiana. Car accidents involving cyclists run a higher risk of ending in catastrophe, and far too many families have lost someone under similar circumstances. Those who encounter such negligence may wish to pursue restitution in civil court, but they might need guidance in the process.
