Exercise caution while traveling this summer

| Jun 12, 2020 | Car Accidents |

Louisiana residents have been cooped up for months. Many are just now venturing back out into the wider world. Vacation plans figure prominently on many people’s agendas right now while gas prices are still so low.

That translates to more traffic on the roads. So, it is very important that if you and your family are planning to travel this summer, you make safety your number one priority.

As you drive to your vacation destination, be mindful that some motorists may be stressed from recent events. They might be distracted and not fully focused on the road ahead and the other vehicles around them. Driving defensively but not aggressively can help you spot and avoid potential dangers, road hazards and negligent motorists.

It’s always a good idea to be aware of the weather and what may be brewing out there in the Gulf of Mexico. Tropical storm Cristobal just blew through Houma and, thankfully, did little damage. But the next disturbance in the Gulf could affect your travel plans and make driving more hazardous. Plan ahead and don’t hesitate to postpone your trip if inclement weather prevails.

Despite your best-laid plans, another driver’s negligence could wind up causing a collision that injures you and your family. If that fate befalls you on your vacation, we can help you see that justice is meted out. By filing a claim for damages against the at-fault driver(s), you can pursue financial compensation that can help to make you whole again after the accident that injures you. We will support and advise you every step of the way.
