We understand the issues surrounding distracted driving
There are three major types of distracted driving behind the wheel. Manual distractions, which take a driver’s hands off the wheel; visual distractions, which take the driver’s eyes off the road; and cognitive distractions, which take the driver’s mind off the task of operating the vehicle. Texting is especially dangerous because it combines all three types of distraction, but it is far from the only type of distracted driving. We’ve represented people who were hit by drivers who were talking on a phone, talking to a passenger, eating, adjusting the radio or even grooming themselves behind the wheel.
In our experience, proving that the driver who hit you was distracted can be surprisingly difficult. That’s why we’ll go to work right away to demonstrate that negligence caused your injury. We’ll pore over accident reports, investigate the crash scene and talk to witnesses who may be able to testify that the driver who hit you was distracted.
We’ll also deal with the distracted driver’s insurance company on your behalf to make sure your rights are protected. Remember, anything you say to an insurance company can be taken out of context and used against you.
