How does speeding affect accidents?

If you are like most drivers, you have probably exceeded the posted speed limit at some point when driving in Louisiana. It can happen easily, but when you are intentionally speeding, it creates dangerous conditions. Speeding leads to many accidents, which are typically more severe than accidents that do not involve speeding.

What is whistleblower protection?

If your Louisiana employer is creating a dangerous work environment or not following safety regulations, you have the right to report them. However, in the past, employees were afraid of doing so because employers would often punish them for doing it. Thanks to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s whistleblower protection, you no longer have to worry about kickback from your employer.

Is offshore drilling safe for oil rig workers?

Many jobs in Louisiana are risky or dangerous in some way. For certain professions, such as offshore drilling, danger is just part of the job. According to Time, part of what makes an oil rig career so risky is that job sites are located hundreds of miles offshore, away from everyone and everything. If something happens, the Coast Guard, the authority in charge, can take a long time to get on the scene. In the meantime, it is up to the crew to get out safely and attend to the injured.

Common accident-related neck and back injuries

Residents of Louisiana who have been involved in car accident may find themselves facing back pain, injury, or trauma. Unfortunately, the neck and back are two areas that often suffer the most damage during a crash, and the damage that's done can cause long-lasting pain and even disability for long periods of the sufferer's life.
