What is a spinal cord injury?

Most people in Louisiana know that the spinal cord is an important part of the body but they may not fully understand what it is or does and how an injury to it may impact a person. Because there are so many situations that could contribute to a spinal cord injury, understanding this is important.

What information should I get after an accident?

If you are involved in an accident, it is important that you try to maintain calm and get control over the situation. The information you gather at the scene can be very helpful to you in the future when trying to deal with insurance and pay for damages or medical bills. It will also help you when making a report with law enforcement.

What designates a vehicle as commercial?

When you hear the term "commercial vehicle," what comes to mind? Many people would say a large truck or a large vehicle. However, that is not fully encompassing all commercial vehicles under Louisiana law. The commercial vehicle designation has nothing to do with the size or weight of a vehicle. It is linked entirely to use.

Drilling in the Gulf Coast area is common because the waters are nice. They do not suffer from icing issues because they are generally warm. The downside, though, is they are a target for hurricanes and other tropical storms.
