Accidents Caused by Distracted Driving
Reliable New Port Richey Car Accident Attorney
Distracted driving is a major cause of car accidents in the state of Florida,
and the rise of cell phone and texting usage while driving has brought
the problem to a new level. Studies are placing the risks of texting while
driving on par with those of driving while intoxicated.
Various states, cities, and counties across the U.S. have passed strict
laws against texting while driving. The Florida legislature may pass a
ban as well in the near future. Your focus, if you know or believe you
were injured by a texting or otherwise distracted driver, should be working
with a law firm dedicated to thorough investigation and protection of
your right to compensation.
A Skilled & Aggressive Approach to Proving Driver Distraction
Our Dunedin personal injury attorneys’ comprehensive and aggressive
approach to building your case could prove critical for your future. At
the Paulsen Law Group, we are fully prepared to move quickly on your behalf,
find witnesses, and bring forth evidence to prove that the driver who
hurt you or a loved one was distracted and seriously negligent. In some
cases, accident victims or witnesses actually observed another driver
with his or her phone in hand just before the crash.
A few factors in your accident that could indicate that texting was the
cause might include another driver's:
- Failure to brake or slow down before impact, such as in a rear-end collision
Failure to obey a stop sign or traffic signal, often resulting in a
T-bone accident in an intersection
- "Lane drifting" or an unsafe lane change
