We have the resources and knowledge to be able to give each car accident case the time and effort required to build a comprehensive claim for damages.

Investigating Distracted Driving Accidents

With the creation of smartphones with large screens comes the addiction to check emails, read texts or search for directions while driving. These distractions lead to numerous motor vehicle accidents every day. In addition, distracted driving can be caused by a number of other different actions or circumstances, including:

  • Eating or drinking
  • Changing the radio station
  • Reading a map
  • Talking with passengers

Regardless of what the at-fault driver was doing to cause your distracted driving car accident, it is important that you seek out legal representation immediately. A trained personal injury lawyer can perform a thorough investigation and may be able to uncover evidence that can be used during negotiations or at trial. An attorney can also act as the main contact for all insurance company inquiries so that you can focus on getting better.
