Spinal cord injury claims in New Orleans

Damage to the spinal cord is often permanent and it can result in irreparable paralysis. However, paralyzing conditions and loss of mobility are not the only things that spinal cord injury victims have to deal with. Often, victims suffer from psychological turmoil, pain, infection, circulation problems and extreme financial difficulties.

Many spinal cord injury sufferers need to employ in-home assistance to tend to their health needs and help them carry out daily tasks. For example, victims may find it extremely difficult -- if not impossible -- to complete tasks that are generally considered easy, like brushing their teeth, combing their hair, going to the bathroom and simply being able to breathe without assistance.

How can the insurance company affect my personal injury case?

No matter what kind of personal injury case you are pursuing, there is a very high chance that you will need to deal with an insurance company. In fact, most personal injury attorneys will not agree to take on a new case unless the defendant is covered by an insurance policy. That is because, if the plaintiff wins, an insurance company will be able to pay the bill, whereas a private individual may not have sufficient assets to pay.

However, there could be some big challenges that arise when dealing with insurance companies. For instance, the size, type and overall litigation philosophy of the insurance company could have a significant effect on the likelihood of settlement and how soon it might occur in a particular case.

What are the signs of a brain injury?

Traumatic brain injuries are not always readily evident, even to doctors. Indeed, a person can suffer a serious TBI without any outward physical signs. Still, there could be some very big cognitive deficits and other signs that a skilled doctor can identify following an accident. This article will discuss what signs and symptoms accident victims should watch for to determine if they might have a TBI.

Accident victims with a TBI might show signs of memory loss relating to recent events. They might have no memory of the accident itself, and they might not remember what they did last week or yesterday. In most cases, the memory loss is temporary, but in rare cases, it never returns.

Interstate pedestrian accidents in Louisiana

Pedestrians should not be walking on the interstate and in many cases, accidents involving pedestrians on highways will be blamed on the pedestrian themselves. However, that does not mean that interstate pedestrian crashes are always the fault of the pedestrian. A wide variety of scenarios could result in fault and liability being placed on a federal or state agency, or another driver. This article will discuss how pedestrian accidents frequently occur.

Often, pedestrians hit by other vehicles were standing or walking on the side of the road. For example, if a driver has a vehicle malfunction and needs to exit his or her vehicle for some reason, he or she will be at risk of getting hit. Inattentive drivers can sometimes cause these accidents due to their own negligence in failing to watch the road ahead of them. Also, drunk drivers and sleepy drivers cause many of these crashes.

Do seatbelts really save lives?

Seatbelts have been around for a long time and all cars are equipped with them. Nevertheless, a lot of Louisiana residents don't use them when they're in a vehicle, and they'll offer up a host of excuses why they don't. The worst of those excuses is the idea that seatbelts don't work to prevent injuries and deaths. Statistics show that this idea is completely and utterly false.

Seatbelts have been scientifically proven to dramatically reduce the risk of death and serious injury by approximately 50 percent. Outside of obeying traffic laws and being an attentive and defensive driver, they are the single most effective safety feature to use while driving.

Sign the Motorcycle Safety Foundations Contract for Safety Now!

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation has published its Contract for Safety in order to encourage all motorcyclists to stay as safe as possible on the roadway. While this contract does not have any sort of legal ramifications for motorcyclists, it is an excellent way for motorcyclists to affirm that they will stay safe while operating their vehicles. The Contract for Safety recognizes the concern of family and friends about the motorcyclists in their lives and asks motorcyclists to affirm some important aspects of safety that they will adhere to while riding.

For one, they agree to be aware of all risks and to maintain a 360 degree awareness of everything around them. They agree to recognize that their vehicles do not offer crash protection like cars do, and that cars may not always see them.

Drive responsibly this holiday season

Christmas is here, and New Year's Eve is right around the corner. That means lots of presents, friends and family, time off work and good times had by all, right? While this is certainly true for most of us, Louisiana residents need to stay grounded and realistic during the holiday season about one very important issue: drunk driving.

With all the festive cheer and parties, our nation's roadways will be literally clogged with intoxicated partygoers who should never have gotten behind the wheel of an automobile. That means, even if you are extremely careful not to drink and drive yourself, your family is still in serious danger of getting tangled up in a car accident with someone who is not being so responsible.

Wrongful death litigation in Louisiana

No accidental death is easy for family members to endure. However, when it is obvious that the death could have, and should have, been avoided if the person who caused the accident had acted more responsibly, it is a particularly harsh reality for family members to face. It is in these kinds of situations that the family of the deceased may consider the pursuit of a wrongful death action against the person who caused their loved one's death.

At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, we help people whose family members were killed in accidents to seek financial restitution. Some of the more common wrongful death actions we take on include car accident cases, motorcycle accident cases, commercial truck accident matters, workplace incidents and medical malpractice claims. In the litigation of these cases, we often employ the use of medical expert witnesses, accident reconstruction specialists, earnings consultants and other kinds of professionals.

2 common questions about workers' compensation benefits

Nearly every Louisiana employee is covered by workers' compensation insurance. This insurance will pay you benefits in the event of an employment-caused illness or injury. For example, these benefits will pay for your medical care. They will pay for your time spent unable to work, and they will pay for other kinds of costs associated with your health issue. This article will discuss two common questions that come up before the pursuit of a work injury-related claim.

What are the basics I should know about workers' compensation?

Ford recalls nearly 500,000 vehicles due to gas tank problems

Ford has recalled almost 500,000 cars due to a fuel tank problem. The affected vehicles are 2010 and 2011 model year Mercury Milans and Ford Fusions that were manufactured and sold to consumers in North America.

Ford says that some of the affected vehicles have defective canister purge valves in their gas tanks. The defect can result in fuel tank pressure irregularities. All of the vehicles affected by the recall were manufactured in Mexico at Ford's Hermosillo Assembly Plant.
