Workers' compensation claims in Jefferson

Most Jefferson employers strive to ensure that workplace dangers are minimized and their workers are safe. However, it doesn't matter how many safety precautions are taken. Some workers are always going to get hurt - either by accident, through their' own fault or because of something the employer did or failed to do.

What the Email Privacy Act Means For You

On Wednesday, April 27, 2016, the US House of Representatives passed the Email Privacy Act by a vote of 419-0 in a burst of bipartisanship rarely seen in Congress. The bill now must pass through the Senate and receive a signature from President Obama before it becomes law, though both of these things are widely expected to happen.

Textalyzer technology could save us from smartphone perils

Texting while driving kills numerous Louisiana residents every year. Just like drunk driving, it does not matter how careful Louisiana drivers are, they could still be hurt or killed by another driver who unconscionably chooses to be distracted by his or her cellphone while operating a motor vehicle. For this reason, our state has laws governing the use of cell phones and prohibiting distracted driving. Indeed, Louisiana drivers must be reasonably attentive under the law while operating their motor vehicles in order to avoid getting into a car crash.

The idea of a body part being worth money in a workers' compensation claim is not something that most Louisiana residents think about on a daily basis. However, this is exactly what workers' compensation attorneys concern themselves with - and anyone who has lost a body part in a serious accident caused by another party's negligence should also think about the issue. One thing that is particularly interesting about this topic is the history of assigning value to lost body parts, which dates back to the ancient days of King Ur-Nammu, who ruled in Mesopotamia at about 2100 B.C.

Motorcycle braking strategies: Which is right for you?

Proper motorcycle braking is debated among many experienced bikers. A long time ago, for example, most new motorcyclists received nothing more than a five-second lesson about the operation of their bikes. They were often told where the throttle was, where the clutch was and not to use their front brake.

What treatment options are available for paralysis?

Louisiana residents can suffer from paralysis for a variety of reasons. In some cases, the area of the brain that governs voluntary muscle movement can suffer damage from a stroke or traumatic brain injury. In other cases, paralysis could be caused by damage to the spinal cord. Car accidents, sports injuries, slip and fall accidents and occupational accidents are some of the most common causes of these paralyzing injuries.
