Our personal injury lawyers are diligent and thorough in evidence gathering, a skill that is highly valuable when dealing with the insurance companies that defend negligent drivers.
Help For Victims Of All Forms Of Distracted Driving
While there are numerous distractions that can pull attention away from the road, cellphone use is perhaps the most common. Whether texting, reading email, scrolling through a list of contacts or pulling up a GPS app, drivers sacrifice precious seconds of situational awareness to looking at their cellphone screen. In fact, one classic University of Utah study demonstrated motorists who talk on hand-held or hands-free cellular phones are as impaired as drunken drivers.
Though cellphone use may be today’s most publicized form of distracted driving, many other behaviors result in auto accidents each year. At Beebe and O’Neil, we have handled distracted driving claims involving:
- Eating or drinking in the car
- Adjusting the radio
- Programming navigation systems
- Using in-car DVD players
- Disciplining children
- Putting on makeup or fixing hair
