The Threat of Distracted Drivers

Four out of five drivers surveyed believe that both cell phone use and texting while driving are a cause of concern on our Connecticut roads. Drivers state that they feel like they are more at risk for car accidents and injuries sustained in a collision than they were five years ago. Distracted driving has been an area of focus lately. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 6,000 people died in crashes that happened in 2008 involving a distracted driver, while more than half a million were injured. The NHTSA is currently conducting a high visibility enforcement project in Connecticut. Beginning April 10, 2011 law enforcement will be out in full force making sure drivers keep their eyes on the road. Drivers caught violating cell phone laws will be ticketed.

Your safety and the safety of the driving public depend on careful drivers. In our investigations of car accidents, we examine phone records, log books, and other important data to determine why the driver may have been distracted. Studies consistently show that distracted driving is nearly as dangerous as drunk driving, and the NHTSA reports that a distracted driver is 23 times more likely to be involved in a car accident. If you or someone you love has been the victim of distracted driving we can help. These type of accidents account for 18% of traffic fatalities in the United States every year and countless serious injuries, as well, so we are prepared to fight for your rights to compensation in the event that negligent actions have caused you harm.
