Thorough Metairie Lawyer Takes Action Against Distracted Drivers

Knowledgeable Louisiana advocate advises victims of careless motorists

More potential distractions exist for drivers than ever before. In addition to eating, drinking, talking to passengers, and applying makeup while behind the wheel, drivers are now increasingly distracted by tech devices. Smartphones, sophisticated dashboard displays, and other technological advances can trigger a moment of inattention that leads to a lifetime of pain. Since 1997, my Metairie law firm, Troy R. Keller A.P.L.C., has taken effective action against careless motorists throughout Louisiana. In the New Orleans area and beyond, I advocate for the rights of crash victims against defendants and insurance companies. With more than 25 years of legal experience, I can move past the initial story and investigate what truly caused the collision so that clients are fully compensated for the harm they’ve suffered.

Attorney handles crash cases arising from phone use and other distractions

Having won compensation for more than 2,000 victims of auto accidents and other instances of negligence, I can develop an effective strategy to secure a fair result in matters arising from distractions such as:

  • Texting and phone use — Louisiana drivers are prohibited from texting while driving, and certain motorists are not allowed to use their cell phones at all. Even when someone’s hands are free, the fact that a driver is involved in a conversation can lead to a devastating collision.
  • Dashboard distractions — Adjusting one’s sound system or climate control can lead to a period of inattention that triggers a crash.
  • Passenger activity — Conversations with passengers or dealing with boisterous children or active pets poses a danger to drivers and the vehicles sharing the road with them.
  • Eating and grooming — Many people eat or drink in the car as part of their common routine. These activities can occupy a driver’s hands, vision and focus. If a hot beverage or food is spilled, the motorist might lose all control. Likewise, someone who is styling their hair or applying makeup also presents a safety hazard.

Starting with a free initial consultation, my firm will launch a complete investigation to determine if any distraction played a part in your car or truck accident. From there, I will pursue a judgment or settlement that forces a distracted driver to account for their carelessness.
