Today’s world is a busy one. From computers and fax machines to navigational devices and cellphones, we find ourselves relying on technology to help us with our tasks. However, our North Carolina personal injury law firm has seen firsthand how multitasking when driving, especially texting, has lead to serious car wrecks that result in catastrophic injuries to those involved.
In fact, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, motorists who use a hand-held device while driving are four times more prone to experiencing a serious crash that leaves other motorists severely injured than people who are not using hand-held devices while driving. Collisions caused by distracted drivers can lead to debilitating injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. In many cases, those who suffer these types of injuries need extensive medical treatment and therapy, which can be very costly.
If you are a victim of an accident that you believe was caused by a distracted driver using a cellphone at the time of the wreck, or you have lost a loved one in such an accident, our firm may be able to help you pursue compensation for your losses. Representing people in personal injury and wrongful death claims, we work hard to protect the rights of our clients. We strive to do everything possible to attain a positive outcome for your case because we believe that people should be held responsible for their actions.
Our goal is to help you obtain the maximum amount of compensation you deserve for your losses, such as medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, wage losses and loss of consortium.
