Distracted Drivers

Distracted drivers are becoming an epidemic problem that is resulting in an increase in the number and severity of serious traffic accident injuries and wrongful death cases. Inattention, talking on a cell phone, or texting while driving increases everyone’s risk of being seriously injured by a distracted driver. Failure to stop for a red traffic signal or running a stop sign they didn’t see because they were distracted is not just negligent, it is downright reckless conduct with serious consequences to the innocent victims. Our firm has handled numerous cases involving distracted and inattentive drivers with excellent results. One example of a case handled by our firm resulted in a $2,300,000.00 settlement from a distracted driver who ran a stop sign he didn’t see.

Drunk Drivers

Drunk drivers killed 12,744 people in 2009 alone. The number of severe personal injuries caused by drunk and impaired drivers is even higher in that same year. There is no excuse for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Our firm has handled numerous cases involving drunk drivers. Representing an injury victim in a drunk driving case requires experience and proficiency in pleading the right cause of action and including an Attachment for a Punitive Damages claim.
