Car crashes and your child’s future

From the loss of life to being unable to work, there are many ways that motor vehicle collisions can upend peoples’ lives. Sadly, in Louisiana, some parents learn that their child was involved in a motor vehicle collision. At Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates, we know of many different reasons why this can be particularly tough. If you are a parent whose child was hit by a drunk driver, or involved in any other type of crash, it is vital for you to take steps to protect his or her future.

Preventing medication errors

Medication errors can cause major health problems and even lead to death in Louisiana. Most errors of this kind are a result of human error. The good news, though, is this means they are preventable. Patients and caregivers can do their part to help stop medication errors.

How to stay on top of product recalls

Every Louisiana citizen is subject to having a consumer product they have purchased being recalled. According to USA.gov, recalls are issued when a manufacturer discovers a problem with its product that could pose a risk to consumers. For example, this could be that a product was mislabeled or that it is defective. Consumers may be asked to return or exchange the item or to send for a repair kit. In some cases, consumers are alerted they should no longer use the product and provide instructions for obtaining a refund.

Getting life back on track after drug charges

Drug use often does not seem like a serious problem until the moment when you are behind bars and facing drug charges. According to the Louisiana Drug Control Update, in previous years, the state has had a higher than average drug-related death rate. Alarming figures such as this make it clear that drug use is, in fact, a serious problem for people of all ages and backgrounds.

How many lives are lost due to drunk driving?

From distractions that divert the attention of drivers to reckless speeding and poor weather, auto crashes happen for many reasons. Sadly, in Bossier City, and on roads across the entire state of Louisiana, some of these accidents are caused by drivers who decide to operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. To make matters worse, these wrecks claim many lives each year and leave victims' families with devastating sadness and even financial woes.

Drunk driving charges and employment

A person who is convicted or charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in Louisiana faces serious consequences. These are not just legal consequences either. The effects can spread to include employment ramifications. Many people worry that a DUI could lead to losing their job or being unable to find employment. According to BACtrack, this is a valid concern because many employers will look at a person's criminal background and a DUI is a criminal charge.
