In many ways, it is like a dystopian novel come to life: Human beings, their attention distracted by electronic devices, do terrible, sometimes deadly things to other humans on the road.
At Libbey Law Offices, we have a proven track record of helping people injured in distracted driving accidents pursue compensation for their injuries. Our experienced car accident attorneys also help close family members who lost a loved one to such an accident bring wrongful death actions.
What Types of Distraction Caused the Damage?
Distracted driving includes a lot more than texting and driving or too much smartphone use behind the wheel. There are also long-standing distractions such as eating or drinking, fiddling with the radio and talking too much with passengers.
These distractions can be particularly troublesome for teenagers, but they apply to all age groups. And electronic devices have taken distraction to a new level, making driving unsafe at any speed.
Ultimately, however, what matters most is not what type of distraction caused the accident, but how you will respond. As with other motor vehicle accidents, this is best done with guidance from a dedicated distracted driving attorney.
If you were injured in a distracted driving accident, or if a close family member was killed, we encourage you to assert your rights. Our lawyers offer a no-cost consultation in these cases.
