When should a child move to a front-facing car seat?

Figuring out how to keep your children safe in the car may seem overwhelming, especially with all the different types of car seats. If you want to know when you should switch your child from a rear-facing car seat to a front-facing seat, you may have to consult both the manufacturer's instructions and local regulations. In Louisiana, there is a recent law that includes new rules for when children may use different types of car seats.

Drive safe around cyclists

Riding a bike is a good way to get around Louisiana, and there are more cyclists on the road when there is warmer weather. Because bikes are harder to see, there is an increased chance of collisions with other vehicles. To keep things safe, drivers need to understand how to maneuver around bikes, and cyclists also need to take the right precautions to prevent accidents from occurring.

How to deal with kids in the car

If you are a parent in Louisiana, you are probably aware of how distracting it can be to drive with your kids in the car. Whether you have a young infant or unruly teenagers, you are at a higher risk of getting into an accident than drivers who are not driving with young ones. The next time you get in the car, there are certain things you can do to improve safety of you and others on the road.

How can I ensure a safe road trip?

With summer practically here, many families in Louisianna are gearing up for an epic road trip. When taking an extended drive in your vehicle, it's important to take the proper safety measures to keep you, your family, and other motorists safe. In this case, State Farm recommends the following summer safety tips. 

Motor vehicle wrecks and panic attacks

When it comes to car accidents, the emotional aspects of a crash should not be overlooked. People often focus on the physical injuries that people sustain in these wrecks, or the financial consequences they face following a collision. However, the emotional toll can be devastating, and strong emotions can even cause motor vehicle crashes in the first place. In this post, we will look into some issues related to panic attacks and traffic accidents.

Auto accidents and new parents

There is a myriad of factors to consider when it comes to motor vehicle collisions and new parents. For example, some people may be more likely to find themselves in a crash after the recent birth of their child, whether they are tired and stressed out or divert their attention to monitor their infant while driving. Parents also need to familiarize themselves with safety guidelines when it comes to car seat use and driving with an infant. On the other hand, parents may also be struck by a reckless driver, which can be especially devastating when a very young child is in the vehicle.

How often are truck drivers abusing drugs and alcohol?

Sharing the road with large commercial trucks is an inevitable part of life in Louisiana, but studies show that many of the people driving those trucks are engaging in highly dangerous behaviors before or while behind the wheel. While anyone who drinks or abuses drugs before driving endangers everyone who crosses his or her path, commercial truck drivers who do so pose a particularly serious threat to the public due to the sheer size and weight of their vehicles.

Freeways, high speeds and car crashes

Driving on the freeway can be dangerous for a number of reasons, but the fact that vehicles are traveling at very high speeds can be extremely dangerous. Unfortunately, when a collision occurs in this environment, the outcome can be devastating (especially when compared to accidents that happen on roads where vehicles are traveling much slower). It is important to be extra vigilant when you are driving on a freeway, or at any other time where you or other drivers around you are driving very fast.

Mental strength after a work-related traffic wreck

If you were recently involved in a work-related accident that occurred while you were driving, our law firm is fully aware of the different challenges you may be going through. An inability to pay bills due to lost wages, medical costs, serious and debilitating injuries and mental trauma are just some of the hardships that those who are involved in job-related traffic crashes may face. However, it is important for you to stay focused on your recovery, and part of this involves having mental strength. The consequences of these accidents can be mentally draining but taking the right approach afterward (and having the right mindset) could be very beneficial.

Car crashes and tourists

Motor vehicle collisions happen because of poor decisions, but they also take place because people are unable to drive properly for some reason. Fatigue and distractions are common problems, but there are other challenges that may lead to a motor vehicle collision. For example, someone who is driving while they are on a vacation may have an especially high chance of causing an auto accident. Not only do tourists often have little familiarity with local roads (or even the laws of the road, especially for those driving in a new country for the first time), but they can also be extremely tired due to their trip.
