Local Covington, Louisiana attorney focusing 100% on personal injury matters.

Multitasking is a great concept if you're in the office or tackling a number of chores at home, but it's a recipe for disaster if you are driving. Sadly, too many Louisiana motor vehicle accidents are caused by distracted drivers. One of the biggest culprits in today's world of mobile technology and constant contact is texting while driving.

If you or a family member has been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver, call Grady J. Flattmann Attorneys at Law, LLC, to protect your rights. Your injuries are bad enough; you should not also have to shoulder the burden of medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. We advocate aggressively for accident victims if an insurance provider will not fulfill its obligation and compensate you fairly.

In Louisiana, it is against the law for new drivers with "learner's" or "intermediate" licenses to use cellphones while driving. It is also illegal for drivers of any age to use wireless devices for writing, sending, or reading text-based communications while driving. Additionally, it is illegal to use a cell phone for any reason while driving through a school zone during posted hours, unless it is for emergency reasons.  Yet, we see people doing it every day, and causing accidents.

We Focus On Personal Attention And Cost-Effective Solutions

Mr. Flattmann has practiced personal injury law in Louisiana since 2005.
