April is officially known as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month and your Louisiana car accident attorneys here at Cardone Law Firm would like to help spread the message in order to hopefully save lives and keep all drivers safe out on the roads.

Unfortunately, the use of cell phones and other tech while behind the wheel, has made it extremely easy for drivers to get distracted. Consider that five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. If traveling at 55 MPH, that’s enough time to cover the length of a standard-sized football field. Now consider individuals who are traveling at even greater speeds, such as 75 MPH and up.

Details About the Accident

Hit-and-Run-Driver-Arrested
Just last month we reported on a fiery hit-and-run accident that took place in Jefferson Parish on I-10 near the Veterans Boulevard overpass. The driver of a Mercury Grand Marquis sideswiped a semi-truck, causing it to lose control which then led to one of its trailers flipping over the edge of the elevated expressway and catching fire.

The driver of the Mercury – 36-year-old Brandon Eserman of Marrero – then fled the scene of the accident, leaving the car parked in Metairie.

A man who suffered injuries as a result of a flying golf club won a jury verdict in his case recently, recovering both general and medical expense damages. But the total that the injured man obtained might have been even more. Had the man provided certain forms of documentary proof, he might have also succeeded on his claims for lost wages and lost earning potential, and realized an even greater cumulative award. The outcome is a reminder to make sure you have all the evidence you need to get the full recovery you deserve. For help in pursuing your case, be sure you have an experienced Louisiana injury attorney on your side.

The facts leading to this lawsuit were quite unusual. D.H. and M.T. were two members of a group of four individuals who were golfing together at a course in Jefferson Parish. M.T. struck a poor shot and, as some golfers do, reacted by throwing his club. The airborne club crashed into D.H.’s leg, hitting just above the knee.
