Distracted Driving Accidents
In today’s world we need and want things as soon as possible. Technologies such as handheld devices, Blackberry’s and PDA’s afford us that luxury. Granted these devices and solutions may make our lives easier to manage on some levels they can endanger ourselves or others if used carelessly while driving. Operating a motor vehicle is a complex task that requires one’s total focus, awareness and motor skills. Using a cell phone or text messaging while driving, draws a drivers attention away from the road, traffic conditions and vehicle operation. As technology advances, the capacity for inattentive driving accidents increases.
Your Legal Rights After A Distracted Driving Accident
In the unfortunate event of such an accident it will greatly benefit you to have the skill and expertise of a successful Pennsylvania trial attorney on your side. Legal recourse for someone injured in an inattentive driving accident normally involves filing a personal injury lawsuit. The ultimate value of a claim depends on factors such as driver negligence, possible intoxication, insurance coverage and extent of the injury. In addition, if the inattentive driver was making a business related phone call or replying to a business email while driving the employer may be held responsible. Financial compensation may also be achievable if it can be established that the negligent conduct illustrated disregard for public safety.
With all of this in mind it is important to find an attorney who has the experience, resources and willingness to properly investigate your claim and pursuing all avenues of recovery. Thoroughly investigating an inattentive accident claim involves things such as reviewing cell phone records, determining blood alcohol level and events immediately preceding the accident.
The Delaware County car accident lawyers at the Law Office of Deborah M. Truscello know how to do this for their clients. We take everything into consideration during the investigation and will do her best to ensure that you get a fair amount of compensation for your injuries.
