Seeking Maximum Compensation For Victims Of Distracted Driving

If you or your loved one was in a car crash, the best investment you can make is to select an experienced attorney committed to maximizing your financial recovery. This has been our focus for decades.

We focus almost exclusively on handling personal injury claims. We know how insurance companies work to try to limit their liability by assigning a percentage of fault to the victim. The insurance adjuster may claim that you did not signal properly or possibly drove unusually slow.

Insurers will use any excuse possible to put part if not all of the blame on you in order to limit how much compensation they have to pay.

We conduct thorough investigations to limit any attempts to shortchange your financial recovery. Our personal injury attorneys will work with you to understand what you remember just seconds before the collision occurred. Any witness statements or police reports can further substantiate the cause of the car accident, such as:

  • Texting and driving
  • Checking Facebook or other apps on a smartphone
  • Talking on a cellphone
  • Eating while driving
  • Disciplining children in the back seat

If you believe the other driver was texting or talking on his or her cellphone at the time of the accident, his or her phone records could be used to validate your claim. Any surveillance footage could also be used to help establish liability.

For highly complex cases, we have the resources to consult accident scene reconstructionists, especially when distracted driving leads to trucking accidents. We work with them to reconstruct how a motor vehicle accident occurred.

Our personal injury attorneys have the skills and legal resources to prove fault, even when liability is initially unclear, to maximize financial recovery that accounts for the full extent of our clients' injuries.
