Distracted Driving Accident Attorney in New Orleans

Let Our Car Accident Lawyer Protect Your Rights!

In today’s society, we depend on modern technology to conduct our daily activities and keep track of our personal information. Having access to practically anything with a device that’s the size of your hand is immensely convenient; however, using it while driving a motor vehicle is as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

At Cossé Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping victims of distracted driving accidents recover the compensation they deserve. With over 20 years of legal experience, our New Orleans car accident lawyer has the extensive knowledge of the Louisiana legal system to help you navigate through any complexities you may encounter in your case.

Common Distractions for Drivers

Distracted driving is an activity that takes an individual’s attention away from the main task of driving a motor vehicle. Whether it’s visually distracting, mentally distracting, or physically distracting, having your attention away from the road, even for only a few seconds, can result in a devastating car accident. Distracted driving is considered one of the leading contributions to car accidents, often resulting in serious body injury and even death.

Common distractions include the following:

  • Texting
  • Talking on the phone
  • Spacing out
  • Eating and/or drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Switching radio stations
  • Grooming
  • Using a navigation system

To determine if a driver was distracted at the time of your accident, you may need to hire an attorney to help with investigations. Your attorney may be able to review phone records, surveillance footage from the scene, or interview witnesses to the crash.

Tips to Minimize Distractions While Driving

  • Leave enough time for you to get to your destination safely (and account for traffic)
  • Take care of grooming at home, not in the car
  • Only use your phone in emergencies
  • Do not drive if you are drowsy
  • Don't eat while driving
  • Set your navigation route before you leave
  • Do not have stressful conversations with passengers while driving
