Defending Yourself After An Accident
We’re always on the move, whether it’s rushing to work, heading to the gym or dropping the kids off. We spend a lot of time in our cars and unfortunately, accidents can happen. As a driver, it is our duty to be responsible. When others drive distracted, you may be the one who is affected. If you’ve been injured because of a distracted driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Weber & Carrier, LLP, is here to fight for your rights after an accident.
What Is Considered Distracted Driving?
When you’re driving, anything that takes your eyes off the road or disturbs your mental concentration is considered distracted driving. While technology has come a long way, it can hinder us while we’re on the road. Some people look at their cellphones or iPods, ignoring those around them. More and more states have banned cellphones on the road, but it doesn’t stop us from using them. It is not limited to technology, though. Some people have been caught shaving, putting on makeup or tending to a pet.
These distractions can cause serious accidents, including injury and even death. If you’ve been the victim of a distracted driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We will work together to build the strongest possible case. You shouldn’t have to suffer due to someone else’s negligence.
