Negligent Drivers Can Cause Catastrophic Accidents
Distracted driving can be caused by any activity that takes the driver’s attention away from the road and/or hands off the wheel. This can include:
- Talking, texting or emailing on a cellphone
- Using an mp3 player or the radio
- Eating or drinking
- Dealing with children or pets in the vehicle
Accidents caused by distracted drivers can be very serious because their inattention can cause them to speed or fail to notice changing traffic conditions. Distracted drivers may swerve into other lanes, sideswiping other cars or running them off the road. They may also cause rear-end or head-on collisions.
Injuries common to these types of accidents include fractures, amputations, back and spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and burns. The most severe accidents may result in wrongful deaths.
We will work diligently to obtain the amount of compensation you need to cover past and future losses associated with the accident. By investigating the accident, we will determine who is liable and will hold that party accountable for your losses. Our skill as trial lawyers means that we know how to build strong cases.
