Isn’t it funny how the most important things in life are the ones we find it easiest to postpone? The same guy in Louisiana who will drive home from church at breakneck speed to not miss one second of a New Orleans Saints game will put off his medical check-up, retirement planning, or an appointment with a lawyer for another month or year. Here is an absolute truth for you:
And just how well would that work out?
You might be like most people, with convenient excuses like:
Let’s address those common excuses one at a time:
Sure, there are lots of lawyers out there. Some you’ll like and some you won’t. If you are going to place your and your family’s safety in someone’s hands, you want to know you can trust those hands.
Doesn’t it make sense to have a lawyer on your side before an emergency?

While it may be true that there are no bad dogs only bad owners of dogs, that is of no help to you if you are the victim of a vicious attack by a dog. Also, if you are the owner of a dog that has defended itself after being painfully provoked you might wrongly face police charges, expensive fines and possibly the dearth of your much-loved family pet.
Here is the summation of our state laws:
A dog becomes dangerous when
(1) unprovoked, on two separate occasions within the prior thirty-six-month period, engages in any behavior that requires a defensive action by any person to prevent bodily injury when the person and the dog are off the property of the owner of the dog;
(2) any dog which, when unprovoked, bites a person causing an injury; or
(3) any dog which, when unprovoked, on two separate occasions within the prior thirty-six-month period, has killed, seriously bitten, inflicted injury, or otherwise caused injury to a domestic animal off the property of the owner of the dog.
From the same statutory summary, Any citizen or officer may kill any dangerous or vicious dog, and no citizen or officer shall be liable for damages or to prosecution by reason of killing any dangerous or vicious dog.
What should you do if you or a neighbor is subjected to a dog attack? Whether you are the victim or the dog owner, you need immediate legal advice. After all, if a court determines you are the owner of a dangerous dog, you are liable to a fine of up to $500 and/or imprisonment for up to six months.

It is frightening to consider that a driver in Louisiana is a full 50% more likely to be killed in a Motor Vehicle accident than the average American driver. As of 2013, 15.7 out of every 100,000 drivers in Louisiana will be killed each year on our roads, as opposed to the overall US average of 10.4 out of every 100,000 dying as a result of a motor accident.
Death is only the most dramatic of the possible horrible outcomes from a car or truck accident. Others include:
When you or a family member is involved in an accident on our roads, you need help. You need an experienced lawyer standing alongside the police, ambulance and tow truck. Your rights and indeed your lifestyle are at risk. This is not a time to hesitate, regardless of the shock you or a loved one will be feeling. You need to call Sanjay K. Biswas.
