Who is at risk for shingles?

Shingles and chickenpox are both caused by the varicella zoster virus, so if you've ever had a case of the chickenpox, you have a chance of developing shingles at some point in your life. According to Medical News Today, most people who contract shingles  develop a painful, blistering rash. While the rash may appear anywhere on the body, it most commonly appears on the torso, often on only one side. Other possible symptoms of shingles include nausea, chills, weakness and muscle aches. Shingles is a fairly common condition, with approximately 1 million new cases reported in the United States, including Louisiana, every year.

Steps to take when you are involved in a car crash

Driving on Louisiana roadways is something most people take for granted, whether you are running errands, going to work or heading out for date night. At Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates, we have experience representing clients injured in traffic accidents.

Can you be tricked into buying a defective product?

It’s a common fact of everyday life that people will be exposed to sales pitches, jingles and advertisements, all designed to make Louisiana residents open their wallets, sign a contract, or fill an online shopping cart. Sometimes what we purchase is not what we expected and we feel ripped off, even tricked. It is important to establish key facts to determine if your purchase was the result of deception.

Are hurricanes a problem for cruises?

As you prepare for your cruise out into the Atlantic, the presence of hurricane season on the calendar could give you pause. Many Louisiana residents might not want to brave the Gulf waters with the threat of a destructive hurricane lurking out there. While a hurricane might cause some disruptions to your cruise experience, the threat of actually getting caught in a hurricane is practically non-existent.
