When accidents are caused by distracted drivers

Thousands of Connecticut motorists are involved in car accidents every year. Many of these crashes are caused by distracted drivers. Driving takes a lot of skill and focus and when a driver takes his or her eyes of the road for even a few seconds, a serious accident can occur. This is a serious issue, as a distracted driver can be held liable for any damages. There are some common types of distractions though which can easily be avoided and possible accidents averted if drivers were to pay attention to their surroundings. What should one do if their injuries are caused by a distracted driver?

Texting and driving is one of the most common distractions, especially among teens and young adults. Although many cars are now equipped with Bluetooth and hands-free devices, many drivers still hold their phones up to their ears and attempt to drive. Reading, eating, drinking and fiddling around with the radio are also actions that can lead to a car crash. Passengers can also cause distractions. You may be distracted talking to the person in the passenger seat, or be forced to yell the kids throwing things in the car or kicking the seat behind you.

We have the experience and knowledge to help you win your claim. We look for witness testimony and other evidence that can prove your position. We may conduct a crash reconstruction to determine how the accident occurred. In order to determine the amount of damages you should receive, we typically hire financial experts.

Distracted drivers can be held liable for their actions through personal injury claims. If you or a loved one was injured by a motorist's distractions, you may be able to receive compensation for damages. We'll do our best to help you file a successful lawsuit.
