Considerations of liability in bounce house injuries

Having fun in an inflatable bounce house is something that many children enjoy. These large inflatable structures come in a host of themes and sizes. There are commercial ones that are set up at fairs and festivals, but there are also smaller ones that are set up at homes.

The entire cost of an injury has to be included in your claim

Being involved in a car accident on the interstate is something that can lead to serious injuries. These injuries might impact your life in negative ways. Thinking about how the effects can impact your finances can be depressing, but it's important to understand nonetheless.

Alleged impaired driver kills tow truck driver on the interstate

Louisiana law demands that drivers pull over or slow down where emergency services vehicles are working. This includes tow truck drivers. As these drivers do their work, they need to know that other drivers aren't going to slam into them. A recent accident shows how important this is. A tow truck driver was killed on I-55 when a Nissan Rogue sideswiped a truck that was waiting a tow and the tow truck that had pulled in front of it to haul it away.

Pedestrian accidents have special considerations

Pedestrian accidents are often very serious accidents. It is easy to understand why because you have a very heavy vehicle with a metal frame coming against a person who is flesh, blood and bones. When one of these accidents occurs, it is imperative that the pedestrian understands his or her rights regarding compensation.

The true cost of a parent's serious car accident

A car accident has many costs, and when it comes to a parent suffering an injury, it's not just the parent who suffers. If the parent is the sole provider, then the family has no income, so lost wages become a concern. If the parent was a stay-at-home mom or dad, then childcare may now become necessary and an added expense. Add to that the cost of medical debt and transportation to and from therapy and appointments, and you see why a car accident injury results in many different costs.

18-wheeler crashes demand that victims take action

Think about how many big trucks travel along I-10 through Lake Charles on a daily basis. Each one of those semi trucks is an accident waiting to happen if the trucker isn't driving in a safe manner. If you get on the interstate, or any road that big rigs travel on, you are putting your life in the hands of the strangers driving those trucks.

Fatigue, malfunctions and other causes of big rig crashes

Semi truck drivers have a special duty of care. Their large trucks can be deadly weapons if they aren't driven in a safe manner. This means that the truckers have to take steps to ensure that they aren't doing anything that could be dangerous while they drive. Sadly, some truckers have become so complacent that they will try to text, eat or do other activities while they are driving. This can lead to very serious accidents.
