Distracted driving is a top cause of motor vehicle accidents that result in injuries and deaths.

Attorneys represent clients hurt in cell phone-related distracted driving accidents
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s Go Safely California campaign, 58 percent of the state’s drivers said in a survey that they had been hit or nearly hit by a driver who was texting or talking on a cell phone. The use of cell phones behind the wheel is the number one reason for distracted driving accidents. It is also illegal for drivers to text, scroll through social media and otherwise have their hands on their cell phones while driving in California. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by cell phone use, our personal injury firm will aggressively advocate for approximate payment to cover your healthcare costs and other damages.
Diligent lawyers stand up for the injured in all types of distracted driving cases
Other distracted driving behaviors that cause harmful car accidents include eating, drinking, applying makeup, shaving, reading and reaching in the backseat or on the floor for objects. Sometimes, even speaking with passengers can take a driver’s mind off the road and trigger a dangerous accident. If a distracted driver caused an accident that hurt you, a legal claim can be made against them for negligence and you could collect compensation. Our firm will investigate all the evidence in the accident to help prove liability and hold the driver accountable.
What you should do following a distracted driving accident
In addition to getting medical attention, it can be important to your case to take these steps following a distracted driving accident:
- Call the police and ask for a copy of their report once it is completed
- If you are able, take photos and/or video of the accident scene
- Get contact information from the other driver and eyewitnesses to the accident
- Write down everything you remember about the accident
- Keep a file with your medical records and bills
By doing these things, you are gathering what can be valuable evidence in your personal injury claim. When we take on your case, we will follow up on the evidence, identify further information supporting your claim and work hard to prove that you were a victim of another driver’s careless actions behind the wheel.
Common injuries in distracted driving accidents
Serious motor vehicle accidents can cause severe and catastrophic injuries that require expensive medical treatments. Some of the most common injuries in accident cases include:
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries
- Whiplash, back, neck and spinal injuries
- Arm and leg fractures and broken ribs
- Soft tissue and organ damage
- Contusions and bruises to the chest and upper body
No matter what injuries you sustained, if they were due to a vehicle operator who was not focused on the road, we will fight for your right to compensation.
