Study finds drivers just can't stay off of their cellphones

Some of our readers in Louisiana may have seen a recent post here, which discussed the potential issue that safety features in newer vehicles may actually be a distraction for drivers. Distracted driving is a problem that is plaguing the entire country. Our state is not immune to the devastating consequences, which can be associated with a car accident that is caused by a distracted driver. But, even if safety features in new cars are distracting, we all know what the main cause of distracted driving is: cellphones.

Safety features in cars can be distracting

These days, many of our readers have probably noticed that the debate about distracted driving and what to do about it is becoming unavoidable, which is a good thing. Each year thousands of Americans are injured or die in car accidents that were caused by distracted drivers and, as a result, legislators and politicians are doing their best to enact laws and policies that will help bring down the number of these accidents that occur. But, what about the car companies? Are their efforts to make cars safer actually making distracted driving worse?

Obtaining compensation after a car accident in Louisiana

Chances are that many of our readers have been involved in a "fender-bender" before. However, there are some car accidents that are more serious than others, and which can involve severe injuries for the victims involved in the crash. For such victims, bills for medical treatment, surgeries, medication and rehabilitation can pile up quickly. When a victim did not cause the car accident, why should that individual be the one to pay these expenses?

Who is at fault for unsafe property conditions?

Many of our readers in Louisiana have probably been to a place where they were more than a little concerned about the safety of the premises. A store may have stairs without a handrail, for instance, or maybe a business has not installed the proper security measures to protect contractors and customers. Whatever the situation, residents should not simply look past these unsafe conditions, because if they are injured it may be necessary to take legal action.

How truck accidents occur in Louisiana
