Common reasons for car accidents: are they grounds for a claim?

When you get behind the wheel of your vehicle to head to work or run an errand, you are probably not thinking about the ways that you could suffer harm. In fact, you are likely a safe and cautious driver, and you do all the things you are supposed to do to stay safe. Despite your efforts, it is impossible to control the actions of others.

Missed deadline results in $2.3 million malpractice judgment

Timing is crucial in any Louisiana personal injury lawsuit, and that may be especially true for medical malpractice cases. A recent case from another state helps illustrate the importance of deadlines and statutes of limitations.

Being tired does not just make people cranky, it also makes drivers angry. All of those angry drivers are making road rage a bigger problem.

A closer look at medical benefits

Louisiana's workers' compensation system is designed to help workers get the medical treatment they need after they are injured on the job, and to help them cope with the loss of income they experience while they are recovering and unable to return to work. Unfortunately, it isn't always easy for injured workers to get through the system and get the benefits they need in a timely manner.
