Slidell Distracted Driver Accident Lawyer
Distracted driving has been the subject of many new laws in the past few years, especially where cellphone use while driving is concerned. But despite the very well-known risks of driving while on a cellphone, people continue to do it. People continue to text while driving. Cellphone use and texting while driving can often result in rear-end collisions.
While cellphone use and texting are the most talked-about examples of distracted driving, other kinds of distractions also occur. People drive while eating, while changing the DVD in the children's car television, while scanning through radio stations. The list goes on.

Covington Truck Accident Lawyer
A truck accident can be a very different legal animal from a car accident. The scope of the destruction alone often distinguishes a truck accident from a car accident. Commercial vehicle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and even death. The law that governs these areas, therefore, is often more complicated than the law involving car accidents.
Covington, Louisiana, Semi Accidents Attorney
Lawyer Craig P. Hart practices in a region that sees its share of truck accidents. With Interstate 10, I-12 and Highway 190 running through the area, trucks expose people to unique dangers on a regular basis. As a result, Craig P. Hart has developed the expertise necessary to understand the complicated legal issues found in truck accident cases, ranging from 18-wheeler cases to commercial van cases.
Holding Companies Responsible for Negligent Behavior
Because truck accidents often involve commercial vehicles, determining who is responsible for your injuries becomes more involved. Perhaps the driver was so tired that he or she should not have been driving. Perhaps the trucking company failed to perform maintenance on its trucks to keep them in safe condition. The company may have not followed proper procedures when hiring the driver. Besides examining the facts concerning the private company, our firm will also investigate whether your injuries may have been caused by a city or county not properly keeping its roads in a safe condition.
The Law Office of Craig P. Hart works with you to ensure that you receive the financial help you need to meet your medical expenses, both past and future. Our staff works with you to build the paperwork and documentation needed to establish your injuries and their impact on your life. We will help you prepare a case that you can confidently present to a judge and jury to explain what happened to you, what is still happening to you and what you expect to happen to you in the future. Our goal is to get your needs met and to hold responsible those people who have caused your injury.

Covington Rear-End Collision Lawyer
A rear-end collision may be the most frustrating kind of car accident you can experience. When you were rear-ended, you may have been obeying the law by stopping at a crosswalk or stop light. The driver behind you, however, was not paying attention. The driver behind you may have been texting, talking on a cellphone or searching for something in the car.
But even though everyone knows who is at fault in the car wreck, a rear-end collision can involve you in a maze of paperwork. Whether by an attorney for the insurance company or an attorney for the other driver, your story is going to be challenged. Other parties do not challenge your story to show that it is false so much as to minimize the amount of money they may be required to pay you.
