Pursuing compensation after a distracted driving accident

Statistics show that distracted driving is a serious issue nationwide. And, haven't we all seen it before? People in Florida try to do a lot of things while behind the wheel of a car. They may be eating a hamburger, combing their hair, tuning the radio or talking to passengers. And, these days they may try to talk on their cell phone or text someone.

In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, around 600,000 motorists use a cell phone at any point in the day while operating their motor vehicle. Unfortunately, 18 percent of car crashes that took place in 2014 in the United States were caused by a distracted driver. These accidents led to thousands of fatalities, to both motorists and non-motorists, such as pedestrians and bicyclists.

When a person is killed in a collision caused by a distracted driver, their loved ones must cope with many expenses. There may be medical expenses and funeral expenses. In addition, they will have to deal with the loss of income and companionship the deceased provided. At our firm, we have assisted clients pursue compensation not only for out-of-pocket expenses, but also for punitive damages.

Losing a loved one in an accident is never easy. The victims' loved ones will experience a bevy of emotions as they grieve. However, part of the healing process for some is holding the responsible party accountable. At our firm, we are dedicated to fighting for our clients' rights.
