You May Be Entitled To Compensation If A Distracted Driver Has Injured You
A significant portion of all car accidents occur due to inattentive and distracted drivers. People today have busy schedules and are prone to multitasking in their cars, such as eating food or applying makeup while driving. Others are distracted from the road by a multitude of electronic devices, such as the radio, a GPS or cellphone.
The bottom line is, when a driver’s full attention is not on the road ahead, car accidents are bound to happen. It only takes a split second, and your life could be forever impacted when a distracted driver crashes into you.
Were You The Victim Of A Distracted Driver?
If you have been injured by the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Part of your personal injury claim will rely on establishing fault. When you work with Harris Powers & Cunningham, we will begin investigating your accident immediately.
While proving that another party’s distracted driving was to blame for your accident can be difficult, our lawyers have the experience to secure hard-to-get evidence. When needed, we can also call upon expert witnesses to testify on the dangers of distracted driving.
Some of the negligence claims we can look into include:
- Texting while behind wheel
- Eating while driving
- Applying makeup while driving
- Distracted by passengers while driving
- Using GPS while driving
- Tuning radio while driving
- More than one passenger in a car driven by a teenager (per Arizona state law)
Distracted drivers can rear-end other cars, drift into other lanes, cross into oncoming traffic and hit pedestrians. If you were injured by such a driver, our lawyers can help you obtain the compensation you need.
