The Dangers of Distracted Driving
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 20 percent of accidents resulting in injury in 2009 involved distracted driving. Particularly dangerous is the use of a cell phone while driving. Talking on a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle impairs a driver's reactions as much as driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08. In Pennsylvania, that is equal to drunk driving.

When a client has been injured in an accident caused by distracted driving, we take the time to fully investigate the accident's cause and help you pursue compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, future medical bills, and other out-of-pocket expenses.
