Distracted Driving Accidents
Mobile Use And Texting While Driving
The number of car accidents caused by distracted driving is on a dramatic rise. Talking on a cellphone while driving, texting while driving or emailing while driving significantly affects the driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle. Recent studies have even indicated that distracted driving is more dangerous than drunk driving.
If you have been injured in a distracted driver accident, you may be eligible for significant compensation. It is important to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to learn about your options. Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC, based in North Haven, Connecticut, can provide you with experienced and compassionate legal representation in a difficult time.
