Long Beach Texting & Driving Accident Lawyer

Experienced Advocacy — Car Accidents Caused by Cell Phone Use in Lakewood, California

Driver distractions, such as texting while driving, have contributed to 20 percent of crashes in the United States in 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The increased problem with driver distractions in recent years has caused many states to implement new laws to reduce the number of accidents caused by such distractions. In California, it is illegal to drive while using a handheld cell phone for any activity, including texting, e-mailing, talking, or other task. Any distraction that takes the driver's focus off the road can cause serious accidents and injuries. Unfortunately, even with these new laws, many drivers continue to put others at risk by operating a vehicle while their attention is focused on a cell phone or other electronic device.

Protect your rights following a car accident

If you have suffered visible injuries in a car accident, the negligent driver's insurance company may be quick to offer a settlement to compensate you for your injuries and suffering. However, the initial offer rarely will take into consideration all current and future medical bills, lost wages and future lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages. It is important to have an experienced Long Beach personal injury lawyer who can review your situation and assert your rights in a personal injury claim.
