As 2017 quickly approaches, many people in New Orleans are making resolutions for what they hope to achieve in the coming year. At the beginning of each year, people resolve to make their lives better by doing things like eating healthier, exercising more, or maybe even setting out to find a new job. One resolution that is never a bad idea is for people to commit to safe driving.
Every year, far too many people suffer serious injuries and death on the nation's roadways. With this in mind, people in New Orleans should try to think about ways that they can make the roads safer. Easy steps like not driving while using a cell phone can go a long way toward improving safety. Likewise, maintaining focus on the road and removing all other distractions are imperative to safe driving.
The attorneys at Kambur Law Firm APLC know the dangers of distracted driving. Of course, car accidents happen for other reasons, too. Drinking and driving, for example, is still far too common, despite the well-advertised risks of engaging in this behavior. No matter the reason for an accident, though, our firm fights on behalf of car accident victims. Our firm's website is a resource for victims and their families who are looking for more information about their legal rights following a car accident.
When a negligent driver causes a wreck, accident victims should not have to shoulder the costs of medical expenses and other accident-related damages. Whether the crash resulted from a person driving while intoxicated, texting and driving, or otherwise acting negligently, the attorneys at Kambur can pursue legal claims against all responsible parties.
The new year is always a time for celebration and optimism. One resolution that everyone should be able to agree on is to make driving in the New Orleans area as safe as possible.
