Distracted Driving

There are many, many different things that can cause a driver to be distracted to the point where they cause an accident. While it would be difficult to provide a fully comprehensive list of all the distractions that could potentially cause an accident, the following are some of the more common reasons that injured people find themselves in need of a good Washington, D.C. distracted driving law lawyer:

Cell Phones An all too common distraction these days is from people using their cell phones while driving. Most states have restrictions for talking on the phone while driving, and a few, as well as the District of Columbia have laws restricting texting while driving. Even if someone is talking within the law and hands-free, they can still be distracted by their conversation to the point of causing an accident.

The number of people who are injured and need a distracted driving law lawyer in Washington, D.C. is unfortunately on the rise.

Food & Drink Accidents caused by drivers who are distracted by food or drink are all too common. Paying attention to what you are eating or drinking instead of the road and doing things such as trying to drive with one or no hands while trying to eat, can cause horrible injuries and property damage. If you or someone you love was injured because of this, a distracted driving law lawyer who is licensed to protect people injured by distracted drivers in Washington, D.C., may be able to help. 

Radio & Bluetooth Many people stop paying attention to their driving when they are distracted with trying to adjust their radio, Bluetooth, or other listening devices. In addition to this, many people play their music, etc. too loud for them to hear warning signals such as sirens, horns, people shouting and tires screeching.

Passengers Whether it is a couple getting into an argument, a parent trying to discipline their child, or even just getting engaged in a pleasant conversation, passengers are often a cause of drivers getting distracted and getting into an accident. While all of these and many other kinds of distractions from passengers are wholly valid reasons for commanding a person’s attention, when they do this for a driver, sometimes the damage and injuries caused by this can be devastating, even deadly.

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.
