Taking precautions can help prevent spinal cord injuries

Louisiana residents would probably agree that a spinal cord injury is serious. Approximately 11,000 spinal cord injury accidents occur every year across the United States. While motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries for people aged 65 and younger, falls lead for people aged 65 and older. According to statistics, sports and other recreational activities are responsible for the most spinal cord injuries under 29 years.

Can the State of Louisiana be sued for injury or wrongful death?

Residents of Louisiana may know that a negligent party responsible for causing injuries or a wrongful death to a person can be sued by a victim or surviving family members. If the negligent party happens to be the State of Louisiana, its agency or a political subdivision, the state may also be held liable for personal injury or wrongful death cases. However, there are certain limitations that must be followed by a court while awarding compensation. The purpose behind the limitation is aimed at curbing the trend of governmental liability abuses to avoid overburdening the state's economy and its taxpayers with increased taxes.

A Louisiana lawyer can protect best interests of crash victims

Residents of Lake Charles are aware that several factors can lead to a motor vehicle accident, including distracted driving, driving while intoxicated or defects in a car. In the event of a car accident resulting in death or serious injuries, the financial situation of a family can become further complicated. A car accident victim and his or her family may be entitled to seek compensation for damages. However, they may not receive the maximum possible compensation they deserve if the case is not handled properly.
