Victims of motorcycle accidents and their families have important legal options. A police officer recently died after a motorcycle accident in southeast Louisiana. The fatal motorcycle accident occurred when another vehicle turned in front of the police officer's motorcycle. The police officer, who was not on duty at the time of the accident, was unable to avoid the car crossing in front of him and collided with it.
Semi-truck traffic is common on the roadways in New Orleans. Victims of truck accidents are more likely to sustain serious injuries or be fatally injured in a truck accident than other types of accidents. The size disparity between semi-trucks and passenger vehicles can result in catastrophic injuries and accidents. Injuries that can be suffered in a truck accident can include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones or soft tissue injuries which can have long-term consequences for victims.
