Distracted Driving Victims

Distracted Driving Victims Our nation’s roads aren’t always safe, and according to new polls roughly 11 teens die every day because of texting while driving. Texting is only one type of distracted driving, which can include everything from changing songs on an iPod to reading an email and beyond. Distracted driving is on the rise, and those injured as a result of it deserve to receive financial compensation for their injuries.

When you’re injured in an accident, the key to being able to seek financial compensation for your injuries is showing that the other party acted in a negligent or reckless manner. Distracted driving qualifies in a huge way, and showing that the driver was using their mobile phone at the time of the accident is generally enough to prove that you deserve restitution.

Doing so is often as simple as obtaining mobile phone records and police accident reports, though if needed our team will take additional steps to show that you deserve financial compensation for your injuries. This can take time, and only skilled and experienced attorneys can help.

Additionally, it’s important to understand that due to the nature of these accidents it’s very common for insurance companies to try to offer the victims a settlement early on. This can seem like great news, but in actuality the settlements are usually far less than what you actually deserve and are intended to serve almost like ‘hush money’ – you accept the low amount and lose the chance to seek compensation further.

Your attorney will help you identify what a fair settlement offer is, ensure that you avoid accepting an arrangement that is unfair, and fight to get you the compensation that you really deserve. Our team has years of experience in personal injury law, and we’re ready to help you prove that you are owed financial compensation due to a distracted driver.
