With the cellphone's increasing abilities to play music, show maps and send e-mail or text messages, there are plenty of things to take a driver's attention off the road. Even though there are a number of local and statewide ordinances against the use of cellphones while driving, people just can't resist the urge to respond to a text message when they are in the middle of traffic.

Distracted Drivers Cause Some Of The Most Dangerous Accidents
Research has shown that the impairment level of a person sending a text is nearly equivalent to that of a person who is legally intoxicated. The reaction time of a person looking down to send a text message is so slow that there is almost no chance to hit the brakes if there is a sudden stop in traffic. These circumstances result in near full-speed collisions that cause extremely serious injuries.

We can investigate your accident, counter insurers' claims and skillfully build your case for negotiations and settlement.
