Experienced Representation from a Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer

Drivers have a responsibility to pay attention to the road and engage in other safe driving behaviors. Of course, not every driver takes this responsibility as seriously as he or she should. Every day, thousands of people send or receive text messages, check their e-mail, play games on their phones, all while behind the wheel.

After speaking with Mr. Kennedy, we formulated a plan to go forward...first, he had me evaluated to make sure the problems I was having were not the result of some other causes. Then, they investigated all aspects.

Distracting Behaviors Seen on Louisiana's Roads

Most people associate texting while driving as the leading contributor to distracted driving accidents, and they are right to do so. According to the Traffic Safety Administration, nearly one-third of all auto accidents involve cellphone use, and a driver is 23 times more likely to be involved in a car accident if he or she is reading or writing a text message.

Texting while driving, however, is not the only distracting behavior that could have led to your or your loved one's injuries. Our Lafayette attorneys are ready to take on any case that could have involved a negligent driver:

  • Checking his or her work e-mail
  • Setting or changing directions in a GPA device
  • Putting on makeup
  • Reading
  • Talking to passengers or attending to a child
  • Adjusting the radio or a portable music device
