Driver Distraction & Auto Accidents

Our Auto Accident Lawyer is on Your Side

Besides agreeing to obey all of the traffic laws and signals, drivers are expected to remain alert and aware when sharing the road with others. Sadly, this is not always the case as many drivers engage in highly distracting behaviors that can lead to accidents, injuries and even death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 421,000 people were injured in 2012 in car crashes involving a distracted driver, which is a 9% increase from 2001 data reports. Distracted driving is a nationwide epidemic.

Some of the most common forms of distracted driving habits and behaviors include:

  • Texting or reading text messages while driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Applying makeup while driving

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by driver distraction, you are well within your rights to take immediate legal action. You should not have to pay for the consequences of someone else's negligence, especially when they come with a high price. Our New Orleans personal injury attorney can help you file a personal injury claim so that you may receive compensation for your injuries.
