Hurt By A Dangerous Distracted Driver? We Can Help.

Distracted driving — especially texting while driving and other cellphone and smartphone use — seems to be an increasingly prevalent danger on our roads.

What Is Distracted Driving?

While texting remains one of the most common distractions for drivers, drivers may also be distracted by talking on a cellphone, other smartphone use, eating, applying makeup or operating a GPS or stereo system. These behaviors may seem harmless, but victims of distracted driving know that taking your eyes off the road for even a few seconds can have disastrous and life-changing consequences.
