What is the difference between probation and parole?

When it comes to criminal charges and penalties in Louisiana, many people are confused by certain terms. Two terms that are common to misunderstand are probation and parole. If you or someone you care about is having legal trouble, you may come across both terms. It can be helpful to understand what each means and how they are different.

What should I do when I first discover medical malpractice?

Nobody likes to think of their medical care going wrong, yet there are times when you may find something went seriously amiss with your treatment. You took a mislabeled drug. Surgery was not correctly performed. Your condition was incorrectly diagnosed. If you know or suspect medical malpractice has occurred, what should your first move be? Some Louisiana residents may want to start the claims process immediately, but your health first and foremost should be your top priority.

What should you know about the distracted driving epidemic?

When you drive through Louisiana, there's a good chance that you're going to pass at least one distracted driver. Distracted driving is an epidemic affecting the entire nation, and here are a few things that you should know about it before you hit the road again.

What are some common AC defects?

As warm weather approaches Louisiana, you are probably getting ready to fire up your air conditioner to keep your home cool and livable. AC units need to be installed and used properly to avoid dangerous situations. However, even if you use them properly, issues may still arise. The AC unit could have defects or there could be issues with the installation. Knowing what to look for when you do your annual inspection can help you avoid injuries from a bad unit. 

Workers' compensation and medical expenses under the LHWCA

It is no secret that there are risks associated with working at Louisiana docks. In fact, some of the first worker's protests in America were carried out by shipbuilders back in the 1600s. A long history of collective efforts has led to the current formal protections under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.
