Assistance after being injured by a distracted driver

Distracted driving is a scourge on the roads and highways of Northern California, and across the state, in general. The California Office of Traffic Safety reports that some form of distracted driving - whether texting, talking, putting on makeup, or anything else that takes a driver's eyes off the road - is a factor in four out of every five accidents in the state. Across the United States, distracted drivers kill thousands of motorists every year.

In spite of the state's attempts to crack down on the use of mobile devices while driving, with laws that ban handheld phones and the use of electronic devices by younger drivers, the problem continues to plague the state's streets and highways. The problem is that there are simply more distracted drivers at any given time than there are California Highway Patrol (CHP) and other law enforcement officers to stop them. And, unfortunately, accidents happen.

One of the problems with the state's distracted driving laws is that the fines are relatively small and may not serve as much of a deterrent to those who insist on engaging in these dangerous behaviors. This, of course, is of little comfort to those injured by a distracted driver. Moreover, it does even less to compensate the victims for their injuries, damages, medical bills, and lost wages.

That's where a seasoned lawyer with experience handling distracted driving cases can help you. Distracted driving cases can be hard to prove, but an experienced attorney can hep to ensure you get the compensation to which you are entitled.
