What are the criteria for the Spinal Cord Injury Trust Fund?

A spinal cord injury may result from an impact on the spine by an external physical force, which can then affect the nervous system. Such impacts can leave a patient a paraplegic or a quadriplegic. A head injury resulting from a similar impact can also cause an altered or diminished state of consciousness resulting in a cognitive impairment or reduced physical functioning.

How punitive damages are awarded in auto accident cases

Car accidents in Louisiana claim hundreds of lives and leave many people injured every year. Even though various highway and byway safety measures are out there, auto accidents keep occurring.

There are a number of examples that highlight how being intoxicated makes it even more likely that a plaintiff will win additional damages.

In Louisiana, the Code of Civil Procedure, Article 1732(6), allows plaintiffs in maritime cases, such as, for example, dockworker injuries, to determine if the matter is to be heard and decided by a jury or a judge. As is the case with defendants in other types of legal matters, maritime defendants do not have the option of asking for a trial by jury.
