Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys
Distracted driving causes hundreds of thousands of motor vehicle accidents each year. If you’ve been hurt or have lost a loved one in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver, our experienced Oregon personal injury attorneys can help you recover maximum compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
What Is Distracted Driving?
Some common factors often involved in distracted driving accident cases include:
- Texting and driving
- Talking on a mobile phone while driving
- Eating and drinking or putting on makeup
- Dealing with pets or children in the car
- Daydreaming or “zoning out”
Using a mobile phone to talk or text while driving is the most common cause of distracted driving accidents. In fact, the National Safety Council estimates that 26 percent of all auto accidents involve drivers using mobile phones. Although the hands-on use of a mobile phone while driving is illegal in Oregon, using a hands-free device while driving can also be a serious distraction.
Recovering Compensation In Distracted Driving Cases
Regardless of the type of distraction that led to the collision, if another person’s carelessness or negligence caused your injuries we can help you get the justice and compensation you deserve. Our experienced legal team understands how to build a case to recover damages in many types of personal injury cases. We will fully investigate the facts of your case and collect evidence such as cell phone records, police reports, medical records and other crucial documentation to back up your claim.
Even if you believe you haven’t suffered serious injuries, it’s vital to contact an attorney immediately following an accident, as the full extent of your injuries may not be apparent until days or weeks later. Insurance companies often attempt to provide less than fair compensation and may even deny your claim altogether. Having a skilled personal injury attorney by your side who is well-versed in how to approach distracted driving cases ensures that your rights and financial future are protected.
