Avoid the dangers of holiday shopping

Increasingly, Louisiana residents, like many people worldwide, are choosing to do their shopping online rather than drive to the nearest mall or outlet stores. However, many of us make an exception as the holidays approach. There's something about the festively-decorated stores and tempting bargains that make dealing with the crowds and the traffic worthwhile.

Fatal accident highlights dangers of amusement rides

Many of you likely heard about the tragic fatal accident that occurred recently at the Ohio State Fair when the Fire Ball ride malfunctioned. Seats came off of the spinning ride, sending an 18-year-old young man to his death and injuring seven more people, including one as young as 14. Some were struck by flying debris from the malfunctioning ride.

Spilled liquid causes slip and fall, man files lawsuit

One of the most unrecognized ways that an accident or injury can completely change someone's life is a slip and fall incident. These fall under the legal idea of premises liability, which is the notion that a property manager, business owner, or liable party involved with a piece of real estate or building must ensure that their premises is safe for patrons, guests and other people. If the premises is unsafe and someone suffers an injury as a result of the unsafe premises, then they can be held liable by the injured party.
