Texting While Driving

Rely on Our Experienced & Trial-Tested Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyers

A single text can change the trajectory of your life forever. According to the National Safety Council, cell phone use is responsible for 1.6 million car collisions each year. In fact, it’s estimated that 1 out of every 4 car accidents in the United States is caused by a texting driver. While this distracted driving behavior is illegal in Pennsylvania, many drivers still risk their lives just to type and send a quick message. But those 5 seconds are all it takes for a catastrophic collision to occur.

Our legal team can investigate the accident, help you file an effective claim, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. If necessary, we can even take your case to court to ensure that you’re awarded a beneficial settlement or verdict.

Contact our Philadelphia car accident lawyers at (215) 608-2183 if you’ve been injured by a distracted driver.

Protect Your Standard of Living

In this age of smart devices, many Americans find it difficult to keep their eyes and hands cell phone-free. For this reason, several Pennsylvania lawmakers have been enacting and proposing new laws and regulations to combat the annual number of cell phone-related traffic collisions.

A serious accident can lead to injuries that require expensive medical treatments, multiple surgical procedures, and ongoing rehabilitative services. As the medical bills start piling up, many accident survivors find it difficult to singlehandedly afford the scope of their injury-related expenses. By taking legal action, you can be awarded damages that facilitate your physical recovery and provide for your existing and potential medical expenses.

If your lawsuit is successful, you may be able to recover the following damages and more:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Like most states, Pennsylvania has comparative negligence laws that allows a plaintiff to recover damages even if they are partly responsible for an accident. However, to save money, the defendant’s insurance company may try to limit your damages or eliminate your right to compensation by trying to prove that you’re greatly responsible for the collision. Only an experienced car accident lawyer can meticulously investigate your case, compile and utilize applicable evidence, and develop a litigation strategy that reflects and achieves your financial and legal objectives.
