Automobile accident at Louisiana parade causes multiple injuries

When individuals gather for a celebration, having a good time is likely the main thing on their minds. However, even at times of joy, there is a risk for serious accidents to take place. In many cases, if an automobile accident occurs in an area with numerous people present, it is likely that multiple individuals could be seriously injured. 

Such an accident recently took place in Louisiana during a Mardi Gras parade. Reports stated that while a crowd had gathered for the parade, the driver of a pickup truck crashed into the crowd. Witnesses stated that the driver was speeding before the truck hit two vehicles and multiple people. The pickup came to rest after hitting a dump truck, and several individuals were trapped under the dump truck. 

Family may seek wrongful death claim after Louisiana hit and run

A hit-and-run accident is often devastating. Many parties often question how a person could leave the scene of an accident when other individuals may have been hurt. Unfortunately, this type of accident is not uncommon and typically results in serious or fatal injuries. In the event of a death, the family of the victim may want information on wrongful death claims.

One family in Louisiana may be seeking such knowledge after a recent fatal incident. Reports stated that a 65-year-old man had been riding his bicycle along a roadway when he was apparently struck by a vehicle. Authorities were alerted to the situation after several calls were made regarding a person lying on the road. By the time police arrived at the scene, the driver involved had already fled.

Fatal Louisiana crash may lead to wrongful death claim

It was recently reported that a fatal car crash took place in Louisiana. The incident involved an SUV and a tractor trailer. The driver of the SUV apparently failed to slow for congested traffic, and as a result, the vehicle crashed into the rear of the semi-truck trailer. Now, there is potential for a wrongful death claim to result.

The family of a 56-year-old man who was a passenger in the SUV could be considering such an option. Reports indicated that the front-seat passenger suffered serious injuries that resulted in his death. He was declared dead at the accident site. A second passenger and the driver suffered moderate injuries and were taken from the scene for treatment. 

Wrongful death claim may stem from Louisiana automobile accident

Though serious accidents take place on a daily basis, each incident affects individuals differently. If a person is seriously injured, he or she may face extensive treatment needed for recovery and have to deal with additional repercussions. If the automobile accident leads to a fatality, the family of the victim could face difficulties that no one could imagine. 

Unfortunately, one family in Louisiana may be facing such hardships after a recent crash. Reports stated that a 32-year-old woman attempted to cross two lanes of traffic in her vehicle in order to reach Interstate 49. However, during the attempt, her vehicle struck a second car driven by a 30-year-old individual. The collision caused the second car to overturn, and a 37-year-old passenger was ejected. He had apparently been unrestrained.

Product liability: Beer bottle flaw could harm Louisiana drinkers

Consuming the occasional alcoholic beverage is an act that many individuals participate in. Though they likely understand that there are certain risks that could come along with alcohol consumption, they may not consider the possibility of being injured due to a packaging defect of the product. However, a recent recall about such an issue could potentially result in product liability claims. 

Louisiana residents may be affected by the recall issued by a brewing company. The recall impacts 36 states and revolves around the possibility that certain 12-ounce bottles could break, which would result in glass falling into the bottle. As a result, consumers could be at risk of potentially swallowing the glass, which could pose a choking hazard or cause other injuries. 

Filing legal claim may be logical step after motorcycle accident

The family of a Louisiana motorcyclist may soon be considering their legal options after a recent crash. Reports stated that the motorcycle accident took place when a car traveling east failed to remain in the correct lane and collided with the motorcycle heading west. It was unclear at the time of the report why the car driver crossed the center line.

The motorcyclist was reported as being a 43-year-old man, and the driver of the car was a 30-year-old woman. The incident resulted in the man suffering fatal injuries. He was declared deceased at the site of the incident. The car driver was taken from the scene to an area hospital, but reports indicated that she suffered only minor injuries. 

After fatal events, wrongful death claims may be warranted

In the event that a loved one is killed in a car accident, surviving families may wish to find out their legal options. Some individuals may not be aware that filing a wrongful death claim against the driver considered at fault for a fatal accident could help them work toward gaining compensation. In addition to monetary restitution, successful cases could help individuals feel a sense of justice.

The family of one man may be looking into their options after a recent accident in Louisiana. Reports stated that there was only one vehicle involved in the incident. The vehicle was an SUV driven by a 41-year-old man, and the driver lost control of the SUV and left the road on the right side. The SUV then crashed into multiple trees.

If individuals are interested in the possibility of obtaining monetary compensation after being involved in a serious car wreck, the circumstances of the incident could help them determine whether pursuing a claim could be feasible. If the automobile accident occurred due to the fault of another driver or other party and serious or fatal injuries occurred, a civil claim could be warranted. Therefore, individuals may wish to ensure that they have the necessary information for moving forward. 

One family in Louisiana may be exploring their options after a recent crash. Reports stated that the incident involved two vehicles heading east. The driver of an SUV was traveling behind a van when the SUV collided with the back of the van. The van then went off the roadway and flipped. 

Wrong-way driver causes fatal automobile accident in Louisiana

After a fatal accident, the surviving family of the victim has several options for how they would like to proceed. In many cases, individuals may choose to seek legal action against the driver considered at fault for the fatal automobile accident. A civil claim could allow interested individuals to seek justice and restitution in the form of monetary compensation.

Such action could result after a recent accident in Louisiana. Reports stated that a driver traveled onto the interstate via the exit ramp and started heading in the wrong direction on the roadway. The man was going north in the southbound lanes when his vehicle sideswiped a pickup truck and then collided head-on with a car. The incidents took place around 7 p.m.

Holiday gift could turn out to be dangerous product in Louisiana

Now that the holidays are coming to a close, many individuals may be ready to use the new gifts they were given. However, for some parties, a thoughtful gift could turn out to be a dangerous product. Individuals could be at risk of suffering serious injuries if they use such a product, and legal action may be warranted.

Louisiana residents may be interested in three products that are currently under recall due to potential hazards. The first product is certain models of Cuisinart brand food processors. The blades in the processors have been known to break, and as a result, pieces of the blades could end up in food. At the time of the report 62 claims had been filed.
