How serious is drunk driving in Louisiana?

If you are have lived in Louisiana for any length of time, you know that the state has very strong laws against drunk driving. Public awareness campaigns and sobriety checkpoints at holidays or other times throughout the year also serve to highlight the risks associated with driving after consuming alcohol. Sadly, there seem to be too many people who refuse to heed the warnings and instead choose to get behind the wheel when impaired. Even worse is the fact that innocent people die because of these choices.

What are the signs of a bad reaction to medication?

Louisiana residents don't expect that they'll have a bad reaction to the medications that they are prescribed. However, unexpected, unpleasant, and potentially dangerous reactions are entirely possible. They can occur for many different reasons, ranging from previously unknown allergies to a bad or defective batch of medicine.

Car collisions and PTSD

When it comes to auto accident consequences, some are evident right away, such as a broken bone or fatality. However, it is essential to bear in mind that some consequences may not be noticeable until some point in the future, such as mental scars, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. If you think that you have developed PTSD due to a motor vehicle wreck, our law firm is very familiar with the unique challenges you could be experiencing and we believe it is essential for you to move forward.

Brain injuries are common issues after serious car accidents

Most people understand that there's a risk involved with getting into a motor vehicle. In the wake of an unexpected accident, people are often grateful just to walk away from the accident. After checking their limbs, they believe they are mostly unhurt, just a little shaken and bruised. These people may quickly move on with their day-to-day lives without realizing how serious their injuries really are.

Understaffing leads to medical errors

When a person seeks medical treatment in Louisiana, he or she expects to be taken care of by a competent medical professional. While there are many safeguards in place, such as extensive education and training requirements, along with licensing, to ensure those working in the medical field are qualified to do so, there is something else that is not as highly regulated that could be hurting the level of care these professionals provide. The problem is understaffing.

Studies not conclusive on impact of ride-sharing on drunk driving

Many in Louisiana have used a service such as Uber or Lyft to get a ride home after a night on the town. However, studies have come to varying conclusions on whether or not drunk driving has decreased in areas that have ride-sharing services available.
