Representing Distracted Driving Crash Victims
Cellphones have become a way of life for people throughout the country. However, using the phone while in a vehicle has become one of the leading causes of auto accidents. There is no question that distracted drivers are dangerous. If you have been hit by a distracted driver, you may have suffered debilitating injuries.
At Berman & Russo, our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience representing auto accident victims. We will make sure you get maximum value from the insurance company. We will go to court instead of agreeing to an inadequate settlement whenever necessary. Our firm does not want to leave you wondering how you will pay for a needed operation and any other medical care while you are recovering and unable to work.
Were You Hit By A Distracted Driver In Connecticut?
Despite laws in Connecticut that are designed to stop distracted driving and the use of cellphones in vehicles, the problem still exists and is entirely too common. Some drivers choose to split their focus between the road and something else, often their cellphone. The effect on their ability to drive safely is similar to drunk driving and often leads to a violent crash.
A distracted driver must be held responsible for the injuries they caused as a result of their negligence. We represent clients who have suffered a range of serious injuries in a distracted driving accident, including:
- Closed head injuries, concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord and back injuries
- Neck injuries and whiplash
- Broken and crushed bones, as well as severed limbs
- Serious cuts and bruises
We also handle fatal accident situations, where a distracted driver’s negligence has caused the wrongful death of another driver and/or passengers.
Other In-Vehicle Distractions
Even before cellphones existed, drivers could become distracted in vehicle and cause an accident. People are constantly multitasking and, unfortunately, that also includes while they are driving. Other types of distractions include eating, other passengers such as children, reading, applying makeup and more.
Looking Out For Our Injured Clients
If a distracted driver hit you, the defendant’s insurance company may delay your claim to try to get you to accept a bad settlement offer. Our lawyers know all their tricks. We will take care of everything related to your claim, including negotiations. If a fair settlement is not possible, we will argue your case before a jury. Our attorneys are experienced and proven litigators, and the insurance companies know it.
