Brain injuries are common in car accidents

The brain is the most complex organ in the body. Scientists argue that the brain may be the most complex system on earth. Its importance for the human body cannot be understated. Although the skull protects the brain, it is still vulnerable to injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are not uncommon during car accidents.

Distracted driving could have caused your car accident injury

It is easy to imagine that a person could become distracted at some point when behind the wheel. Between kids in the backseat, a cell phone ringing off the hook or simply trying to multi-task while driving, it's a feasible thought. However, when distracted driving behavior becomes the cause of a car accident and the corresponding injuries, it's a very serious matter. Even looking away from the road for a moment could be the factor that caused a New Orleans car accident.

Suspected drunk driver plows into crowd at Mardi Gras

Louisiana, and New Orleans specifically are known around the world for a few things. One of those things is Mardi Gras, the annual party that brings locals and tourists alike to the streets of New Orleans to celebrate. This Mardi Gras, the party took a terrifying turn when a pickup truck crashed into a crowd of party goers. The city's police have released the driver's blood alcohol level at the time of the crash.

How do you prove negligence in a car accident?

Whether it is during the day or well into the night, the roads in New Orleans can often be seen filled with motorists. Drivers may be locals or from out of town, but the reality is that all drivers have the knowledge required to drive safely, even those who are unfamiliar with the roads they are travelling. Unfortunately, not all motorists use this knowledge. In fact, a driver may be negligent or reckless behind the wheel due to distractions or even intoxication. Such a situation could be the cause of a serious or even fatal car crash.

Strange circumstances lead to fatal auto accident

Auto accidents can result from an infinite combination of circumstances and events. However, many accidents begin when a distracted or otherwise negligent driver triggers a chain of events that set off the accident. A recent fatal auto accident in New Orleans may have followed this pattern.

Resolve to prevent car accidents in the new year

As 2017 quickly approaches, many people in New Orleans are making resolutions for what they hope to achieve in the coming year.

One resolution that is never a bad idea is for people to commit to safe driving.

Study shows worrisome frequency of car crashes on Louisiana road

The majority of drivers in New Orleans are unlikely to be conducting extensive research into which roads are safe and which are not. However, it is up to local law enforcement, the legislature, and researchers to make certain that those who are using the roads are safe, and motorists do not have to bear the aftermath of a car crash. With that, it is important to understand how and why certain roads can have a higher frequency car accidents than others.
