We all know that too many drivers don’t pay enough attention to the road. It’s called distracted driving, and it is very dangerous. Distracted drivers may look away from the road for only a few seconds. But that’s more than enough time to get into a crash that leaves people seriously injured. The car accident attorneys at Mike Slocumb Law Firm fight for the rights of victims.
Any activity that takes a driver’s attention away from the road is considered distracted driving. Common examples include:
Distracted driving accidents can cause serious injuries. They can range from broken bones and soft tissue damage to spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury. Recovering from some of these injuries can take months or even years. Some people never fully recover and are left with a permanent disability that requires lifelong care.
But recovering financial compensation after being hurt in a distracted driving accident is complicated. Negligent drivers typically deny responsibility, and proving that a driver was distracted can be challenging. Insurance companies are only interested in protecting profits and will try to pay you as little as possible – or nothing at all, if they have their way.
That’s why you need an experienced and aggressive car accident attorney who will fight for your rights. We know the games that insurance companies play. Our attorneys fight back against any of their attempts to blame the accident on you. And we are not interested in lowball settlement offers that fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered.
Proving a driver was distracted can be challenging. That’s why we investigate your accident. Our legal team knows where to look for evidence that proves the driver was not paying attention. This evidence can include cell phone records, traffic cam footage and witness accounts. We sometimes consult accident reconstruction experts who can help us understand how the accident happened.
We are focused on building a strong case that proves the other driver’s negligence caused the accident that left you injured. When insurance companies see that we are prepared to fight them in court, they often realize it is in their best interests to negotiate. But we are not interested in a quick settlement that helps them save money.
Our lawyers fight to help you recover compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injury. If your injury left you unable to work, we fight for compensation for lost wages. Other compensation we seek may include pain and suffering and emotional distress. If the insurance company will not agree to a settlement that works for you, we are ready to take them to trial.
