As a society, we are prone to multitasking. However, there is a time and a place to multitask. In the car, while driving, is not one of those times. While most drivers know that multitasking while driving should be avoided, many continue to take their eyes off the road and their attention away from driving. If you have been injured by a distracted driver, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Whether you were injured by a driver who was texting or was distracted in any other way, we can protect your rights.
