Children on bikes potential victims of car accidents

Summer is winding down in Los Angeles, and children across the state are using their last few weeks of summer vacation to enjoy being outdoors. Though parents certainly caution their children against potential dangers like car accidents, unfortunately, tragedy can still strike. Children may not be as alert as adults, especially when they are engaged in another activity, such as riding a bicycle. 

Modifying child custody in Louisiana

Every state has slightly different child custody laws that govern families. If you are a parent in the state of Louisiana and want to make changes to an existing child custody order, it is important that you learn more about how the laws work in the state.

Distracted driving car accidents on the rise

LA residents can probably count themselves among the millions of Americans who use their phones and tablets more and more each day. The list of tasks that can be accomplished with a simple swipe is growing by the day, and social media has become a convenient way to keep in touch with friends and family. Though it can be difficult to resist the urge to check messages, post an update or answer a call while driving, doing so has become a major cause of serious car accidents

Bicyclists at high risk for injuries from car accidents

Louisiana residents are likely among the millions of Americans that enjoy bicycling, especially during the summer months. Drivers know it is important to watch for cyclists who are often integrated into vehicle traffic. When there are no bike lanes, cyclists must take extra caution to avoid injury or death from car accidents. Knowing hand signals to indicate intended maneuvers, wearing brightly colored or reflective clothing, and wearing a helmet are some of the ways cyclists can stay safe. 

Operation Summer Heat may lead to need for criminal defense

As the summer heat takes old in Louisiana, most residents are probably looking forward to taking some time off to relax and cool off. One Louisiana police department decided to do exactly the opposite, launching a massive investigation over the span of several months in an effort to net a group of people they suspected of illegal activity involving drugs. Whenever major drug crimes make headlines, it can be difficult for people to remember that despite the initial facts that the media has reported, on some occasions those accused of drug crimes are not guilty, and all those accused have a right to present a solid criminal defense.
