Distracted Driving

texting and driving

Did you know that sending or reading a text while driving takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds? At 55 MPH, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed. According to the National Safety Council, the use of a cell phone while driving causes 1.6 million accidents each year. On a typical day, more than 700 people are injured in distracted driving crashes. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a car accident involving a distracted driver, LifeLaw is here to help.

Distracted driving accidents are often life altering, and while in some situations you can deal with them on your own, you will be operating in an arena with other people who are more experienced and who are not always on your side (the insurance company, for example). LifeLaw wants to help make sure you obtain the best possible settlement as quickly as possible, which includes future economic loss, and pain and suffering compensation that you’re entitled to under the law.

There are several things that should be done as soon as possible following a distracted driving accident, both to protect yourself and to protect your family. If these things are delayed, or do not happen, your situation becomes more difficult. To make sure that you and your loved ones are protected, it is best to speak with a LifeLaw personal injury lawyer before discussing the specifics of your case with anyone else. Our personal injury attorneys are available 24/7, offer free consultations and are committed to getting the most in compensation for our clients.
