Clients often wonder how could the defendant driver not see a stopped car at a red light or simply see their brake lights.  No matter the excuses we often hear, the truth is the following vehicle's driver was simply not paying attention.  Louisiana has several "rules" for driving, but I believe there is a golden rule, pay attention.  If a driver pays attention, he will notice all traffic signals, all road and warning signs, and other vehicles on the road.  When a driver fails to pay attention, collisions happen.  A simple distraction can cause serious injury or even end a life.  Louisiana law and our courts provide the victims of crashes protection.
