A car accident lawyer does more than you may initially think when you hire one to represent you after dealing with a car accident. You should never hesitate to hire an attorney because they do more than just help you with legal hurdles. They also provide care and understanding while you go through a stressful time of possible financial stress, or physical and mental pain from injuries after your accident.
This kind of empathy is what we stand for here at the Law Office of Robert W. Kovacs, Jr., while also fighting for your right to compensation after a negligent driver causes your injuries. And part of our fight is finding the evidence as to why that driver caused the accident in the first place.
We note on our website that half a million injuries or fatalities occur a year as the result of distracted drivers. Those numbers fire us up every year to make sure our clients get the compensation they deserve. And this starts with looking for evidence proving without a doubt the driver was more than negligent.
However, distracted driving comes in different forms. What will we look for that proves your case so you have peace of mind while we do the legal work for you?
What's the Most Common Driving Distraction Today?
With mobile technology now becoming so ubiquitous, distractions easily happen watching media while driving. As much as people are aware of the dangers of talking on cell phones or texting while driving, far too many people still do it. Some drivers still think that, if they're in a hurry, a quick text or a cell phone call while driving won't hurt. It only takes a second for this to become a possible fatal or injurious accident scene.
In the age of multimedia on mobile devices, watching videos is another risk. Someone might be binge-watching a favorite show on their smartphone while driving, only to end up in an accident due to distraction.
The same goes for working with GPS systems. As helpful as they are (including GPS voices), digital display distraction is possible while finding a particular location. This sometimes results in running through a red light, or running into the back of someone's car while in traffic.
Also, simple distractions like turning a radio dial or fiddling with other car controls cause serious accidents every year.
These are the things we'll investigate in why a driver ran into you. Evidence sometimes takes time to gather, yet we'll hire personal investigators if necessary to get to the bottom of the truth.
