Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Cellphone Accident Attorney Washington DCDistracted driving has been a problem that has caused accidents for many years now but with the more recent advent of cellphone use in the typical American’s everyday life, the need for a good cellphone accident attorney is on the rise.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a driver who was using their cellphone, or if someone close to you has died as the result of this type of accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Whether you are concerned about mounting medical bills, loss of future earnings, compromised abilities, pain and suffering over the loss of a loved one, or all of the above- it can be overwhelming to try to think about getting compensation on your own. If you are stressed and anxious about how to deal with the aftermath of an accident involving a driver on a cellphone, talking to a cellphone accident attorney Washington DC may start to alleviate some of this stress and anxiety today.

Distracted Driving

Approximately nine people are killed every day and more than 1,000 people are injured in car crashes involving a distracted driver.

Distracted driving is driving while doing something that takes your eyes off of the road and/or your attention away from driving. Talking to your children in the backseat, having a drink or a snack while you are driving, or using a GPS system are all forms of distracted driving but more and more accidents are occurring everyday because of cellphone use while driving. If you are unsure of who is at fault in an accident where a driver was using a cellphone, talking to a top rated cellphone accident attorney may help you to make an informed decision about whether you have a claim that you may be entitled to compensation for.

Three Main Types of Distractions

  1. Manual: When a driver takes their hands off of the wheel and/or positions their
    body in a way that interferes with their ability to guide their vehicle
  2. Cognitive: When a driver engages in thoughts and/or activities that take their mind off of driving
  3. Visual: When a driver takes their eyes off of the road

The three main types of distractions mentioned above are common but are not the only forms of distractions that can cause accidents. Very often an accident is caused by a combination of more than one type of distraction. Talking to the personal injury lawyers Washington DC relies on about your particular and unique situation may help you to determine whether you have a claim that is worth pursuing monetary compensation for.

Cellphone Laws

Laws governing cellphone use differ from state to state. Even though it is illegal to hold a cellphone up to your ear while driving in many states, people do this every day. People often think that since they are capable of having a conversation with a passenger in their vehicle that having a conversation while holding a cellphone is the same thing when it is not. The reality is that cellphone use while driving is a distraction regardless of whether an accident is the result of this use.

Any accident can be a scary experience. An accident where someone is injured or killed can be overwhelmingly so. If you or someone you love was injured in an accident with a driver who was using their cellphone, talking to a knowledgeable cellphone accident attorney of Cohen & Cohen in Maryland, Virginia and or Washington DC may help to alleviate some of your fears while helping you to determine whether you have a claim that you may be able to get compensated for.

This was an awesome experience with Brittney Cassiere, Miriam Calisher, and my attorney Jill. What made me select Cohen & Cohen for my case, was my experience many years ago with Kim Brooks-Rodney. I definitely recommend anyone to use them. They have your best interest at hand.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
