Aggressive, Compassionate Advocacy In Distracted Driving Cases

A vehicle traveling at 40 mph will cover 60 feet in one second. In five seconds, that vehicle will travel the length of a football field. For a driver to not pay attention while driving is to engage in dangerous, reckless conduct. In the mere seconds it takes to respond to a text (or check social media or visit a web page via a mobile device) while driving, a life could be changed forever.

According to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, activities like texting and other distractions slow down a driver's reaction time. In fact, the study found that the driver reacted much like if he or she had been intoxicated.

And in that slowed reaction time is where accidents occur, many serious and life-altering.

Taking Action For People Who Have Been Injured By Distracted Drivers

Distracted driving is a classic example of negligence, and individuals who cause injury must be held responsible.

Our law firm will look at all the evidence to establish that the distracted driver caused your accident. We may use the police report, cellphone/mobile device records and other evidence to show how the other driver was not paying full attention to the road.

Although most motor vehicle accidents are resolved in out-of-court settlements, your attorney must be ready and able to make a strong case in the courtroom if necessary. At Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., we have a long track record of successfully trying many cases for our clients. Even when our cases are resolved before trial, our complete preparation gives our clients maximum leverage in negotiations.
