I represent clients that have been in auto accidents caused by a distracted driver. A distracted driver, can cause accidents with severe consequences. I am a Distracted Driver Accident Lawyer and specialize in securing compensation for clients. When it can be proven that a driver was driving while distracted proving who was at-fault for an accident is usually less time consuming.
On several of my clients cases I have ordered phone data records as evidence of distracted driving. In many states if it can be proven that a driver is distracted with a mobile device or other things that they should not be doing while driving the level of liability increases. In some cases, punitive damages or treble damages may be available. In 2018 approximately 2,841 people in the U.S. were killed from distracted driving accidents.
If a collision is caused by a distracted driver I suggest that my clients first call the local authorities to report the accident and obtain immediate medical attention if needed. After that, they should call me a dedicated car accident lawyer. It is highly advisable that you call me after an accident before you talk to anyone from the insurance company. Quite often, the first thing the insurance company will do after an accident is attempt to record you describing your injuries. This is a bad idea because some injuries do not manifest until days, weeks or in some brain injury cases months later. If you are recorded immediately after the accident saying that you are one hundred percent not injured they will use this recording later to deny a rightful injury claim.
Even some herniated disc injuries cannot be felt until a few days after an accident because of way the body reacts to immediate trauma. However, a herniated disc injury can stay with you for the rest of your life. If you have an injury that is permanent in nature you most likely are going to want proper compensation for that injury. That is the area of law I specialize in, personal injury law.
After one of my clients has been injured in an accident and has reached there maximum medical improvement, I begin to work diligently on there file. I comb the medical records to put together the a demand package and obtain the most compensation for my clients from the applicable insurance companies. This includes collecting the medical records from all of the providers my clients sought treatment with.
When reviewing the medical records for a particular client I often simplify the medical terminology used to best represent your case to the insurance company. This usually means explicitly describing the procedures that my clients had to undergo as a result of an insured’s negligence.
I consider it an honor to represent clients that have been injured in car accidents and distracted driving accidents. Upholding the rights of the injured in contrast to insurance companies is what I have dedicated my legal career to. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have been in an auto accident (434) 660-9701.
