Do you have to contact law enforcement after an accident?

In the moments following a car accident in Lousiana, you will probably be mainly concerned with ensuring everyone is okay and assessing how bad your vehicle was damaged. You might be tempted to avoid calling law enforcement and just work things out between you and the other driver, especially if there was just minor damage. However, it is almost always in the best interest of everyone involved to call law enforcement and report the accident.

What are some safety risks on a cruise ship?

Cruises are very popular vacation options for people in Louisiana. There are cruises designed for almost everyone, from families to singles. It is easy to find a cruise ship that offers an experience you would enjoy. As with any travel option, though, sailing on a cruise ship does not come without risks. 

The consequences of inadequate anesthesia

When you are rendered unconscious in preparation for a surgical operation, you should feel confident that the next time you wake up, your Louisiana surgery is already concluded. However, this is not always the case. In the event the anesthesia administered to you was inadequate, you might awaken during the surgery itself, which can have perpetual consequences. 

How is a jury chosen?

One important aspect of criminal cases in Louisiana is your right to a jury trial. This means a group of people from your area who have no special legal training or knowledge will decide if you are guilty. When you decide to have a jury trial, the process to select the jury will begin. 

Scaffold accidents a concern for the construction industry

If you, like many other Louisiana residents, make a living in construction or another type of industry where you commonly rely on scaffolds or elevated, temporary work platforms, it is critical that you recognize the dangers this equipment poses. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, making efforts to reduce scaffolding-related accidents could potentially save about 60 lives and prevent a percentage of about 4,500 injuries every year.
