Standing Up For Victims In Distracted Driving Accidents
Cell phone use while driving has become rampant and leads to thousands of avoidable car accidents every year. Unfortunately, these accidents are often serious and result in catastrophic injuries to victims simply making their way to work, school or home. When a driver becomes distracted, no matter what the reason, and causes injuries to another driver, the negligent party deserves to be held responsible.

With a focus on providing quality and compassionate legal representation, we fight to help victims recover the compensation they deserve when they have been injured due to another party’s negligence or distracted driving.

From Cellphones To Makeup To Maps, Distracted Driving Can Cost Thousands
No matter what the cause of the negligent driver’s distractions, victims have rights. First and foremost, victims have the right to pursue compensation for any losses or damages stemming from the accident. Losses can include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and property replacement or repair.
In the unfortunate event that the victim does not survive the accident, his or her family may also be entitled to compensation in a wrongful death claim for loss of companionship and loss of potential income, funds that may help them find some small comfort while they focus on their grief.
Common driving distractions include:
- Texting and other cell phone use
- Applying makeup
- Eating or drinking
- Changing the radio station
- Attempting to read a map
- Fighting or horseplay with passengers
Our accident attorneys have assisted several clients injured in accidents in which the negligent driver was distracted. Whatever the cause of these crashes, it is important that the victim consult a qualified attorney regarding their rights and options for pursuing justice for their injuries and losses.
