Distracted drivers cause an alarming number of car accidents each year. Regardless of your own alertness when driving, if another motorist is not paying attention to the road, you may be at risk for a collision.
What Have You Lost Due To A Distracted Driver?
After being injured by a distracted driver, accident victims can face a range of injuries and a long road to recovery. From whiplash and broken bones to head and spinal cord injuries, injured individuals may need multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation. In some cases, accident victims are unable to work and earn an income. Regardless of the specifics in your case, you may have a right to be compensated for any medical expenses and resulting financial losses. You may also have a right to seek compensation for your pain and suffering.
