Proposed law would close DWI loopholes for Louisiana drivers

Data from the Centers for Disease Control indicate that drunk driving is a culprit in more than one in three traffic deaths that occur in Louisiana, which is even higher than the United States' average. House Bill 580, currently awaiting a full hearing in the state legislature after passing the Transportation Committee, seeks to tighten the current law regarding ignition interlock devices in the interest of preventing repeat DWIs. 

What are the dangers of nosocomial pneumonia?

Every day across Louisiana, sick or injured people like you end up admitted to hospitals. Unfortunately, those who go to hospitals are more likely to catch illnesses hanging around the area, especially if your immune system is already compromised. One of these potential bugs is nosocomial pneumonia.

What is the sudden medical emergency defense?

Someone is driving on a Louisiana highway when that person abruptly loses consciousness and collides with another vehicle. The colliding driver later explains that he had suffered a heart attack and was not at fault for the accident. In this scenario, you might wonder if a court would accept this argument as valid. In some cases, courts do recognize such an argument, which is also known as a sudden medical emergency defense.

How the public is notified about drug recalls

While flipping though television channels in Louisiana, at times viewers come across a public awareness advertisement where someone explains that a drug is being recalled because it poses a health risk. These kinds of advertisements are one way drug companies or government agencies let the public know about an unsafe drug on the market that is under a recall notice. However, this is not the only way the public is notified about drug recalls.

How to deal with your insurance company after a serious crash

Many people don't quite understand how motor vehicle insurance works. When you pay your insurance policy premium in Louisiana, you are not paying for coverage for yourself. Instead, you are specifically protecting yourself from liability in the event that you are responsible for a crash that hurts someone or damages their property.

What must you prove in a medical malpractice case?

When you visit your Louisiana physician or enter the hospital for a surgical or other procedure, naturally you expect your physician and everyone else involved in your health care to competently provide it. The last thing you expect is that your doctor or other health care professional will hurt you or make you sicker than when you sought their medical help.

Can a car crash paralyze you?

Should you receive a neck or back injury in a Louisiana car crash, you face becoming paralyzed in part or all of your body. Spinal cord injuries represent some of the most catastrophic injuries your body can sustain, and most of them result in your never walking again unassisted, or worse yet, having to live in a wheelchair.

Drugged driver hits, kills elderly man

People in Louisiana and throughout the South may well be known for their love of celebrations but they are also known for their devotion to their friends and families and their desire to keep their loved ones safe. Unfortunately, this is not always possible and can be made even harder when some people refuse to act responsibly. Despite widespread awareness, many drivers continue to get behind the wheel of a vehicle even when they are taking medications that would make them incapable of driving safely.

Study looks at ways to reduce medication errors

People who live in Louisiana and who must help a family member manage medications after being in the hospital or who must manage their own medications after a hospital stay know just how difficult this can be. It is not uncommon for a patient to have multiple drugs to take at varying times of the day. There may be a myriad of requirements as well. For example, some drugs may have to be taken with food while others should not be.
