A death caused by a motor vehicle accident is a tragedy. It can be all the more so if possibly caused by a drunk driver. A recent accident in Louisiana that took the life of a woman and seriously injured another reportedly was the result of drunk driving.
Reaching where you currently are in your medical career doubtless took years of hard work and high financial cost. The road to becoming an established doctor is long and arduous. Unfortunately, all of that can quickly face jeopardy from allegations of unprofessional or criminal conduct.
The overall divorce rate in Louisiana and the United States in general is declining except in one age group. The divorce rate for those over 50, known as gray divorce, is actually on the increase. While financial concerns are paramount in any marriage dissolution, they can be critical when the parties are near retirement age. This is particularly true if one spouse did not work outside the home.
Bike paths are becoming a popular means to help ensure the safety of bicyclists and cars sharing the same roadways. There are many such bike paths in New Orleans and around Louisiana. On a night in March, they were not enough to protect two cyclists and others from a man who admits to having been intoxicated at the time of a crash. The apparent drunk driving crash resulted in the deaths of two cyclists and injuries to seven others.
Being charged with a crime in Louisiana is a serious issue. When that crime involves drunk driving the implications of the charges can be far-reaching. It can have a negative impact on one's ability to make a living and provide for one's family as the possibility of having a driver's license suspended is a very real possibility. This is particularly true if it is not a person's first offense.
