Cell Phone Distraction
A Cell Phone Car Accident Lawyer Holds Drivers Accountable
In this day and age of instant communication and constantly evolving technology, people are more and more distracted from the real world surrounding them. Distracted driving — usually someone using a cell phone or text messaging — when they should be focusing on the road is one of the leading causes of automobile accidents. Louisiana statutes now make it illegal to text while driving and prohibit drivers under age 18 from using a cell phone at all while driving. Unfortunately, we still see people breaking these rules every day. When a distracted driver breaks the law and injures you in an accident, make sure you are properly compensated.
If you were in an accident that was caused by a negligent driver on his or her cell phone, I can help you hold that party liable. When you contact my firm, The Law Office of Alan Kansas, L.L.C., I can work closely with you throughout the process to help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. I have more than 15 years of experience guiding clients through the legal system, and I help people on the Westbank, in New Orleans, Metairie and throughout Louisiana to get the compensation they deserve when hurt in an car accident.
Providing Liability in Car Accidents
The basic facts of an accident often prove negligence. Failing to stop at a stop sign, running a red light, rear-ending a stationary car, erratic driving, speeding and other actions often establish that a driver was negligent regardless of whether the driver was distracted or not. However, when negligence is not as clear cut, or it is believed that using a cell phone was the cause of the accident, it is often necessary to dig deeper for evidence of distracted driving. Sometimes, a driver admits that he was on the phone or otherwise distracted. Sometimes an eyewitness, even a passenger in the other driver’s car will tell you the driver was on the phone. This is why it is important to review and follow my First Steps After and Accident. Where the evidence is not as easy to get, I take the steps to put the other driver and his insurer on notice, so that if a lawsuit is necessary, we can obtain the billing records showing exactly when the driver was using the phone.
