Car accidents: Recent crash in Louisiana kills 1, injures 1

A stoppage in traffic can occur at any moment and under a variety of circumstances. Upon approaching a congestion in traffic, drivers must use caution in allowing sufficient time to apply the brakes, as failure to do so increases the chances that dangerous car accidents will occur. One person has died and another suffered major injuries in a collision that took place under similar circumstances in Louisiana.

Motorcycle accidents: Crash leads to death of Louisiana woman

A recent collision between a motorcycle and car has reportedly claimed the life of a 40-year-old woman in Louisiana. Many motorcycle accidents occur when another vehicle fails to yield the right-of-way and the results of a similar incident can be calamitous. Riders who encounter such negligence may find it difficult to maneuver by a motor vehicle, and they could end up suffering the consequences.

Car accidents: 1 injured, 1 killed in box truck collision

Many box trucks are made to carry heavy loads, and the increase to size and weight of similar vehicles inherently makes them more difficult to maneuver. Should a driver lose control of a box truck and cross into another lane, the results can be cataclysmic, and car accidents of a similar nature could lead to serious injuries. One person has died and another suffered major injuries in a recent collision involving a box truck in Louisiana.

Wrongful death: Crash claims life of Louisiana woman

Hearing the news that a loved one has died in a fatal collision could be one of the most difficult circumstances a person will ever face. Those who experience such a loss due to another person's negligent actions could choose to pursue restitution through a wrongful death claim. Charges are reportedly pending after a recent accident in Louisiana that killed a 64-year-old woman.

Distracted driving accidents pose a major threat to cyclists

With an ever-increasing amount of traffic on Louisiana roads each day, many individuals choose to travel via bicycle. While cyclists have many of the same rights to the road as drivers of motor vehicles, they inherently have less in the way of available protection and are thus at greater risk of suffering harm should an accident occur. Recent reports suggest that one of the most common threats to the safety of cyclists is inattention on the part of other drivers, and distracted driving accidents can have catastrophic results.

The correlation between speed, age and pedestrian risk of death

New Orleans provides residents and visitors alike with a tremendous amount of "walkability." This means that in many areas of the city, you can stroll through the streets and enjoy the unique atmosphere, buildings and history that make it the Big Easy.
