With little more than a brief moment of inattention, a vehicle can travel several hundred feet in an unknown direction. Car accidents involving vehicles that drift into another lane may unfortunately leave other drivers with limited time to react, and the results of such an incident could cause a person to suffer severe or fatal injuries. A head-on accident that recently took place in Louisiana has reportedly claimed the life of a 55-year-old woman.
The unexpected death of a loved one is never easy. When that death occurs as the result of another person's actions and appears to have been completely preventable, the loss may seem even more tragic. Unfortunately, a family in Louisiana is still likely processing the news that one of their loved ones was killed and another suffered serious injuries in a recent crash.
You cannot go too far in any direction in New Orleans without seeing semitrailers taking up space on the road. They are everywhere. Sadly, numerous Louisiana residents suffer significant injury or even the loss of life in truck accidents every year. Are you one of the many who has been hurt or lost a loved one in such an incident? If so, you may have legal recourse.
For motorcycle riders, few instances may be as hazardous as when an oncoming vehicle makes a sudden left turn. Riders may have insufficient time to respond to a similar maneuver, and motorcycle accidents involving unexpected turns far too commonly prove fatal. A 39-year-old man has died in a recent collision in which a vehicle turned left into the path of his motorcycle in Louisiana.
There could be a variety of scenarios in which a vehicle may drift slightly off the road, and in some cases, the driver may be able to maneuver back on course without any issues. However, similar incidents could also startle drivers and cause them to overcorrect, and car accidents that happen in this manner can have catastrophic results. A recent accident in Louisiana has left one person with serious injuries and killed a 28-year-old woman.
