Your Life Shouldn’t Be At Risk Because Of The Bad Habits Of Others
Distracted driving is becoming a serious problem all over the country. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 421,000 people were injured and 3,360 were killed in accidents involving a distracted driver. Texting and talking on the phone are common causes of catastrophic crashes.

So Many Distractions
The inside of a car is full of distractions these days. Modern technology has brought us many wonderful things, but unfortunately it has also made it harder to concentrate on one thing at a time. Add these to the regular distractions everyone deals with and you can see the potential for disaster driving toward you. Common distractions in the car include:
- Stereo systems
- DVD players
- USB cables and car chargers
- Food and drink
- Personal care
- Other passengers
Our attorneys investigate your accident to determine the cause. We use cellphone tower data to show whether it was a texting accident or some other form of distracted driving. Once the cause is established, we pursue all available avenues of compensation on your behalf.
We prepare all of our cases for trial so we can present the most comprehensive picture to the insurance company. The majority of our cases settle out of court because the insurance companies know our reputation as trial lawyers. We have a strong track record of winning cases for our clients, and our goal is for you to be satisfied with the outcome.
Hold Distracted Drivers Accountable For The Harm They Cause
All cases are taken on a contingency basis, so you pay nothing unless your case is successfully resolved.
