Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving can involve many different unsafe activities that may lead to an accident. Common distractions in Pennsylvania may include:
- Instant messaging
- Watching videos
- Looking at anything on a mobile device
- Talking to other people
Anything that takes a person’s focus from the task of driving can be dangerous and lead to accidents — accidents that can lead to serious injuries and costly property damage for another driver. You could have astronomical hospital bills, weeks of lost wages and even lost ability to work.
West Chester Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer
A person has a responsibility to drive like a reasonable person. Taking your eyes or attention off the road, even for a few moments, to engage with something you don’t need to do, like read a text message, is not something a reasonable driver would do. When a person engages in such behavior and you are hurt or suffer monetary damages as a result, he or she is negligent and liable to you for the loss you suffered. You can recover by filing a lawsuit.
Usually, you will be seeking recovery from the responsible party’s auto liability insurance company. The insurance company is sure to have a team of lawyers fighting to keep every penny they can — meaning you could get nothing at all. The insurance company will have a team of lawyers working for them, looking for every way to avoid paying.
That why you want a skilled team of advocates on your behalf. Call a dedicated auto accident lawyer from Ciccarelli Law Offices today. We work as a team to fight for every cent you’re owed.
