Texting While Driving Is Serious And Illegal
Despite a statewide ban on texting while driving, people throughout Louisiana continue to place their own safety and the safety of everyone else on the road at risk by engaging in this dangerous practice. In 2011, seven people in Louisiana were killed and nearly 1,000 people were injured in accidents where the driver was using a cellphone or some other electronic device.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver, you have the right to seek full compensation for any related loss of income, medical care and property damage. These are complex cases that require the attention of an experienced Houma texting while driving accident lawyer. At the Law Offices of Brent J. Rhodes, I represent injury victims who are suffering because of a distracted driver’s negligence.
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable For Distracted Driving
A wide variety of distractions can lead to serious accidents, including the use of an MP3 player, attending to children, putting on makeup, reading the paper and a host of others. When a driver gets behind the wheel, his or her attention should be on operating the vehicle and nothing else. When drivers allow themselves to be distracted, even for a few seconds, it takes their attention off the road and makes it nearly impossible for them to react to traffic slowdowns, changes in road conditions and other issues that may arise.
I hold them accountable for the harm they cause and work tirelessly to secure full and fair compensation for your losses. I work with medical experts, life care planning specialists, economists and others to seek the right type and amount of compensation for your current and future needs.
