Sharing the road with motorcycles

The recent crash outside of Walker made the local news for a good reason. A rider on a Harley Davidson traveling westbound on LA Hwy 1024 East of Hwy. 449 crashed head-on into a Chevrolet Tahoe that was traveling east. According to news reports, the driver of the SUV crossed over the center line, causing fatal injuries in the rider but no harm to himself. The crash occurred at 5 p.m. and the driver was checked for impairment but did not appear to be intoxicated at the time of the accident. The results of the test have not been announced.

Protecting your tenants from apartment fires

Owning rental properties like apartment buildings is a fine way to bring in extra income or even sustain yourself financially. You may be a hands-off landlord, entrusting the care and upkeep of your apartments to people you hire, or you may be personally involved in the daily operations of your properties. Either way, you have many responsibilities toward your tenants.

Steps bicyclists should take after a car-bike accident

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports 783 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles in 2017. The agency’s most recent data shows those deaths accounted for 2.1% of all traffic deaths, and 75% of those fatal crashes occurred in urban areas.

You can fight city hall

The term “You can’t fight city hall” implied that citizens were not allowed to sue a municipality, parish or government agency because they had sovereign immunity. If there were egregious errors on their part, they would occasionally consent to be sued so suitable reparations could be made. However, this is no longer the case.
