Every year, thousands of accidents and injuries are caused by careless drivers. “Distracted driving” is a term used to describe a driver who is trying to focus on driving and some other activity at the same time. Distracted driving may include a multitude of activities behind the wheel of a car:
- Texting behind the wheel of a car
- Talking on the phone
- Using a GPS device
- Applying makeup
- Adjusting the radio
- Reading a map
Although these activities are not innately bad, they distract drivers from the task at hand: safely operating a motor vehicle. Driving a car requires the use of your hands, eyes, ears, and mental faculties. Anything that that impairs these abilities (like glancing at your phone to read a text) impairs your ability to drive safely. If you have been injured in a car accident cause by a driver who was texting or distracted in some other way, we are ready and willing to help you get the financial compensation you may be entitled to Personal injuries can arise from a variety of other situations as well; car accidents are not the only way a negligent person can hurt someone else. Have you been bit by a dog because the owner failed to warn you that it was dangerous? In most states, dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets and are fully liable for any injury you sustain. Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are held a high standard of excellence. Patients should be able to trust doctors when they need their help.
If a doctor injuries a patient because he/she operated carelessly, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be appropriate. If a pharmacist fails to fill a prescription correctly, serious illness or injury could easily result. Property owners are responsible to make sure that their land is safe – if you slip and fall on someone else’s property because and they didn’t warn you of the hazard, you may be able to file a personal injury suit. No matter what the accident, if someone else’s negligence has caused you harm an attorney from our firm wants to give the necessary legal assistance to help you get the money you may deserve.
