Limo crash leads to many questions

Those who travel in a limo expect that they will have safe transportation to wherever they need to go. However, Louisiana residents may have heard about the limo crash in New York that killed a total of 20 people. According to the state's governor, the vehicle in question failed an inspection and should not have been in service at the time of the accident.

Groups urge controversial change to truck safety guidelines

Truckers in Louisiana know that their vehicles are not required to have crash avoidance systems. The choice is entirely up to each individual fleet owner. However, some groups are pushing for mandatory crash avoidance technology on all large commercial trucks as a way to improve safety. According to federal data, there has been a 28 percent increase in large truck fatalities from 2009 to 2016.

Gathering crucial evidence after a truck accident

Building a personal injury claim after a commercial truck accident is no simple task, even if the fault in the accident is clear. Unlike most accidents between consumer drivers, commercial truck accidents typically involve one or more large companies, each highly motivated to avoid losing thousands of dollars to a settlement.

Many drivers rely too much on collision avoidance systems

Most American drivers, including those in Louisiana, don't fully understand the limitations of collision avoidance systems on new cars and trucks, according to a new study. As a result, many of them overestimate the capabilities of these technologies, potentially placing themselves and others at risk.
