Fight back against distracted driving accidents

Now more than ever, it is important for drivers to pay attention out on the roads. An increase in technology has led individuals in cars to have access to cell phones, apps, tv screens, GPS devices and more. Many vehicles have screens installed with programs that can take a driver's attention away even more so than in the past.

Distraction is a problem for drivers of all ages, but particularly for teens

Authorities say that road accidents are the primary cause of death among teenagers in the United States. And while distraction can cause even the most experienced drivers to lose control of their vehicles, the risk is even higher when an inexperienced teenager is behind the wheel.

Eyes on the road, hands on the wheel

It is no mystery anymore that allowing other activities to distract you behind the wheel of a motor vehicle is dangerous. Nevertheless, drivers persist in allowing their devices to divert their attention from the critical business of watching for others on the road. If you are recovering from injuries you suffered in an accident with a distracted driver, you know the pain and frustration that often result from this kind of selfish behavior.

What should I do if I have been hurt by a distracted driver?

It is easy for people to become so used to multi-tasking in their everyday activities - from work tasks to family responsibilities - that they feel it is okay to multi-task behind the wheel too. Unfortunately, distracted driving can quickly cause a potentially life-altering injury accident. If you have been hurt in a motor vehicle collision caused by a distracted driver in Louisiana, it is within your rights to seek to hold the reportedly at-fault motorist accountable through the civil court system.

Distracted driving and commercial vehicle operators

Commercial vehicle operators keep the wheels of the economy turning for everyone in Louisiana, and for people right across America. Most of the products you purchase every day are delivered by truck. And many truck drivers spend long hours away from home to make sure those products are there when you want them.
