What's behind the rise of trucking accidents?

A motor vehicle accident of any kind is generally a stressful event for those involved. Certain accidents can result in more significant losses for victims, especially when the outcome is serious injury, property damage or even fatality. Motorists can take precautions, but crashes still happen.

Impairment suspected in motorcycle crash with serious injuries

Every year, law enforcement agencies in Louisiana -- and throughout the country -- launch safety campaigns warning motorists to be aware of the presence of motorcyclists. In addition, there are constant reminders about the dangers of driving while impaired. Sadly, these messages are not heeded by many motorists, and motorcyclists often pay the price by suffering serious injuries, or worse, caused by negligent drivers.

No matter how many stories are featured on the local news about the latest drunk driving crash, countless motorists continue to engage in dangerous behaviors.

Unfortunately, horrific accidents occur much too frequently and can often be attributed to the actions of a negligent truck driver.

How big of a problem is drowsy driving?

In today's busy world, sleep is often at a premium. Whether you put in long hours at work or have other time-consuming commitments, getting enough rest can be hard. But you are a cautious driver, so you avoid getting behind the wheel when you feel too tired. Unfortunately, not everyone takes those same precautions. This is perhaps because few people in Louisiana understand just how dangerous drowsy driving is.
