As long as your injury was the direct result of another person’s carelessness or negligence, we may be able to get your medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs compensated. If a dog owner fails to warn you that their dog may be dangerous and the dog hurts you, many states will hold the owner completely liable for your injury. Similarly, if you are injured on someone else’s property because they didn’t provide adequate warning that it was dangerous, they may be held responsible for your injury.
Operating a motor vehicle requires the use or your hands, arms, eyes, ears and mental faculties. Many drivers attempt to complete other tasks behind the wheel of their cars that impair these functions. For instance, driving under the influence of alcohol weakens the driver’s sense of sight as well as their fine and gross motor skills. Similarly, texting behind the wheel of your car impairs your vision and hands and can easily result in a car accident. “Distracted driving” refers to any activity that takes the driver’s attention away from the road, including
- Talking on the phone
- Eating while driving
- Applying makeup behind the wheel
- Reading a map
- Operating a GPS device
Distracted drivers cause thousands of car accidents every year. Many of these accidents result in injury, some result in death. A study conducted by Car and Driver Magazine in 2009 claimed that texting while driving is more dangerous than drunk driving. Drivers who are too tired to operate a vehicle safely or fall asleep behind the wheel may be held responsible for the accidents and injuries they cause as well. If you have been injured because of distracted driver, drunk driver, or other careless individual, you may be entitled to money. Negligence is never acceptable, especially when your safety is on the line. If you have been hurt and believe that someone else is at fault, we urge you to talk to an attorney from our firm as soon as possible.
