Information About Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving has always been a leading cause of car accidents, but with the proliferation of cell phones and smart phones which make it possible to talk, text, check email and even surf the internet, it has become a problem of epidemic proportions. Distracted drivers endanger not only themselves, but also everyone else on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused by some form of driver distraction, contact us at the
Montee Law Firm, P.C. for help from a team with more than a century of combined experience. We fight for the rights of the injured, and have recovered more than $250 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,474 people were killed by distracted drivers in 2009, and another 448,000 were injured, which constitutes 20% of all car accident injuries. A study conducted at Monash University concludes that a driver is four times more likely to be involved in an accident while using a cell phone or other hand-held device, while a report from the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute demonstrates that texting while driving increases the likelihood of an accident by a factor of twenty-three. If you were injured by a driver who was distracted in any way, let us help you claim the compensation you deserve.
