Texting And Driving: The Next Big Thing In Auto Accidents
More than a decade ago, texting became the next big thing in digital communication. Unfortunately, texting while driving has also become the next big thing in causing auto accidents. In many cases, texting drivers have slower reaction times than drunk drivers. This can result in high-speed impacts and devastating injuries to unsuspecting motorists on the road.
If a distracted driver caused a collision and as a result you were injured, you need to seek legal advice. Without the right guidance, you could be on the hook for medical expenses and have no way to collect compensation for lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Other Types Of Distracted Driving Accidents In Ohio
At Chester Law Group Co. LPA, we handle a wide range of auto accident claims, including those caused by distracted drivers. While texting and driving is one of the main causes of distracted driving accidents, our legal team also handles auto wreck claims caused by:
- Making phone calls while driving
- Emailing while driving
- Eating while driving
- Applying makeup while driving
- Drivers attending to children in the car
- Using onboard navigation systems while driving
- Adjusting the radio while driving
- Fatigued driving
In many cases, we can use witness statements and other evidence to prove distracted driving. However, even if the driver will not admit to distracted driving, we have other means of proving liability. For example, maybe we cannot show that the driver was reading a text when he or she hit your car, but we can still prove that he or she ran a stop sign.
Our lawyers have been handling car accident cases for a long time. In fact, personal injury law is all that we do. Together, our lawyers have more than 190 years of combined legal experience. We understand what it takes to secure evidence, prove negligence and negotiate with the insurance companies for rightful compensation. If a fair offer is not made, we will go to court to fight for the justice you deserve.
