New Orleans Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys

You see it every day on the road. People who are supposedly paying attention to the road and "driving" when they are actually distracted due to their cellphone, navigational system, newspaper, food or drink just to name a few. Distracted driving is becoming more and more of a problem in Louisiana, causing serious injuries and even deaths. In fact, legislators have banned one of the biggest culprits, texting and driving. Not only has it been considered illegal in the last few years but more recently, penalties were heightened to deem it a primary offense. This means drivers can be pulled over and cited just for this action alone and it does not have to be coinciding with another traffic violation such as a DUI or speeding. This includes the use of any "wireless communication device" while driving.

Distracted driving is not only wrong but can be illegal in Louisiana. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation and discuss your case with one of our New Orleans distracted driving accident attorneys.
