The Dangers Of Distracted Driving

When a driver takes his or her attention off of the road, he or she is putting the life of every other motorist at risk. Distracted driving accidents are all too common: according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 20 percent of crashes resulting in injury in 2009 involved distracted driving.

Clients throughout the Montgomery County, Bucks County and Lehigh County areas in Pennsylvania count on our law firm for experienced and aggressive personal injury representation. 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 him or her pursue compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, future medical bills and other out-of-pocket expenses.

Texting And Driving

Texting and driving has become an ever-present danger on Pennsylvania's highways, a trend advanced by the popularity of smart phones. When drivers take their eyes off the road, reaction times slow down and emergency stops become more difficult. In fact, using a cellphone while driving impairs a driver's reactions as much as driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent. In Pennsylvania, that is equal to drunk driving.
