Distracted Driver Accidents Injury Lawyer
While it may be efficient to multi-task to accomplish more throughout the day, it should not be done while driving. Drivers who are texting, eating, talking on the phone or doing other activities are more likely to cause a serious vehicle accident. If you are injured by a distracted driver, you have rights. Our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law can help you pursue compensation to cover your medical bills, lost earnings and other costs if you have been injured by a distracted driver.
Drivers are more prone to distractions than ever before. Cell phones are a main cause of distraction. Even with laws throughout the country, many people still use their cell phones while driving. When a driver takes their attention off the road in front of them while the vehicle is moving, they are being reckless and endangering others. It only takes a moment for a child to begin crossing the street or traffic to come to a stop. When a distracted driver hits another vehicle, bicyclist or pedestrian, they may be liable for any injuries that occur.
Fighting Insurance Companies for Compensation
Even if the police report clearly shows that a driver was at fault in an accident, do not expect the driver’s insurance company to gladly pay for all the costs. Insurance companies make profits by taking in premiums and paying out as little as possible when a claim is made. If you have been seriously injured by a distracted driver, you need an experienced attorney that will prove that the driver was negligent and strive to obtain every penny you deserve.
Our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law go the extra mile for our clients and will fight the insurance companies on your behalf.
