C The Difference: Real Story of Client Involved in Life Altering 18 Wheeler Accident

C THE DIFFERENCE: We handled this case for over 5 years, and needless to say, these two clients held a very special place in our heart, and they always will. We can truly say, God matched two great people together and it was a pleasure getting to know them both. A good attorney will learn everything they can about their clients. Their passions, their fears, their background – who they are. We did just that to put together this video story which was presented to the Defendants 1 month before trial. This video story will take you on a journey with our clients. It's a hard journey, and there is still a long road to go. We were able to successfully settle this case 3 days before trial. While we were ready to go, we were able to secure a fair and reasonable settlement which would provide for our clients' future needs. One of our attorneys captured this entire clip. There are companies who do only legal videography and as a general rule of thumb a similar video from one of these companies could cost anywhere from $9,000-$15,000. Because we were able to do the legal videography in-house, we saved a large expense which saved more money for our clients. Moreover, the story comes across the best because it is directed by their own attorney who knows the most about them as their storyteller. After watching this video, you will understand these clients still have a long road ahead. We are collecting cards to send over the next few years as words of encouragement to our clients. If you would like to participate and send a kind encouraging word to our clients, please e-mail your words of encouragement or send a letter and we will make sure it gets passed along. We hope to have enough words of encouragement to send over the next 2 years as one client faces coping with a brain injury due to the accident and the other is now his sole caregiver. Words of Encouragement to be passed along to the clients can be sent to: Email: ccardone@cardonelaw.comMail: 829 Baronne Street, New Orleans, LA 70113.

Auto accidents involving ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft are unique because of the changing landscape of the laws that regulate such businesses. Under current company policies, drivers should be covered as long as they are logged into the app. Likewise, passengers should be covered too. The legal grey area, however, is when someone is on their way to pick up a client. In these cases, the victim of a crash will have to go through the driver’s personal insurance before reaching the rideshare company. In some other cases, injured passengers have to fight against the driver, the driver’s insurance, or even the driver’s contractor to receive fair compensation. So you just got into a Rideshare accident and you want to know what to do next? Let us explain what you need to know.

Do rideshare companies have their own insurance policies?

twin span The Twin Span bridge was closed Friday morning in the eastbound direction due to an overturned 18-wheeler.

The accident happened around 8:30 a.m. State police told WDSU that the tanker is leaking fuel and the bridge will be closed for an extended period of time. According to New Orleans EMS, two people were taken to the trauma center. Drivers should take U.S. 90 or the Causeway Bridge until further notice.

What is a rideshare company?

Rideshare companies (also known as Transportation Network Companies or Peer-to-peer ridesharing) provide driver-for-hire ridesharing services to consumers by contracting with freelance drivers who use their personal vehicles to transport passengers. This service is provided through a smartphone app that is convenient and often inexpensive. Simply pull out your phone, request a ride, and within minutes you’re on your way. Once you arrive at your destination, simply get out and move on with your day. The app handles the payment automatically. They are extremely convenient and easy to use. But there are also some serious concerns about how these services operate, how they screen their drivers, and how they protect their customers if there’s an accident.

(Houston, TX) A pickup driver admitted to drinking several tequila shots before crashing into a Lyft car and killing its passengers. Erik DeLeon, 21, is facing intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault charges in the deadly crash, according to Sean Teare, head of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office Vehicular Crimes Division.

DeLeon told police he had just left an establishment before he slammed his pickup into two vehicles, killing the Lyft passenger, who was minutes away from home after flying into Houston from a business trip, Teare said. The passenger was texting his wife during the ride, telling her he was almost home when the crash happened.https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/tLEMgv1ioS90urWeptMbY8dUErz9jBIB5hGckoK2U_TkPN2K9WOBz3-nGharaD1fOI6GzSYPKRvLk-XhMPeZkrg7zrRqJ9t79IlsQS8f_P50G2xhLF4QV1gN_XO6OhbY8wIGdfCi

driving_school_zone-300x199With the beginning of the new school year comes several readjustments for adults and students alike. In addition to shifting schedules and routines, we see increased vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

This congestion of the roads demands special attention and precaution, particularly in school zones. As reported by the Transportation Research Board, over 100 children are killed walking from school annually, where another 25,000 are injured. Because of this, it is imperative that drivers make sure our roads are safe when traveling with such precious passengers.

Distracted Driving not only ruins vehicles, it ruins lives. Adam Miller was born in July of 2003. His mother Cheryl said he was loud, exuberant and loved trains. “It was wonderful to see him set up the whole train set … and make all the different shapes,” she said. “And he would watch the engine pull the rest of the train along.” By the time he began Kindergarten Adam became a big brother to little Eli. He fell in love with school and wanted to be a teacher. On November 15th 2008, a flat tire left Adam and his dad on the side of Plainfield-Naperville Road. Distracted driving simultaneously occurred by an approaching vehicle as the driver bent down to pick up a cigar wrapper. He didn’t spot the father-son duo’s parked vehicle on the side of the road.

Distracted Driving ruins lives. Filing a Personal injury claim is crucial after an auto accident.

motorcycle_accident-300x200Sometimes, “bad facts” in your accident case may seem to be highly unfavorable. Perhaps the police determined that you were speeding to a substantial degree and that you were not properly attentive to the conditions on the road. In that situation, you are clearly at fault for the accident and cannot recover compensation for the harm you suffered, right? Not necessarily! There may still be options available to you. Before simply giving up on your case, always consult a knowledgeable New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney about your case to learn which options may exist for you.

motor_accident_sue-300x200Generally, when you are injured in Louisiana because another driver turned in front of you, your legal right to seek compensation is something that you can pursue against the other driver and their auto insurer. However, there are certain situations, like road construction, in which the case may be more complex but may also permit an injured person to seek compensation from more than just the other driver and that driver’s insurance company. To find out about all of the options available to you in your circumstances, be sure to contact a knowledgeable New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney about your accident.

In New Orleans, you don’t need an excuse to parade or party. Mardi Gras in particular is one of the biggest holidays in New Orleans generating an estimated $840 million dollars each year. While a vacation is supposed to be a time filled with fun, laughs and excitement – when you add the mass amounts of tourists in with the locals, copious amounts of alcohol and partying, you are bound to have a few accidents.

If you are vacationing in the Big Easy and are injured due to someone else’s carelessness, it’s crucial to know what steps to take next.
