Don't just accept a settlement after a serious car crash

Serious car accidents happen every single day in Louisiana. Sometimes, one or more people die in a crash. Other times, someone is severely injured. Over the last five years, there has been a ten percent increase in the number of crashes with serious injuries and nearly a six percent increase in fatal crashes when looking at the number of crashes per each 100,000 people in the state population. That means that your risk of getting seriously injured or even dying in a motor vehicle accident is higher than it used to be. That doesn't mean you should avoid driving.

How much rest does a truck driver need to take?

Driver fatigue is a dangerous problem, especially for truck drivers operating large and heavy semitrucks. Because catastrophic injuries and death can happen as a result of a semitruck crash -- and because sleepy drivers are the cause of many such accidents -- the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces strict guidelines to ensure that truckers get enough sleep.
