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.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
