Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer in NYC
Drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a responsible and conscientious manner. This means paying attention to the road, driving within the speed limit, and sharing the road with other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Unfortunately, there are a number of distractions that cause drivers to lose cognitive, manual, and visual focus on the task of driving and which dramatically increase the chance of a car accident.
Distractions that commonly cause car accidents include:
- Texting while driving
- Checking or writing emails
- Eating or drinking
- Staring at or programming GPS maps
- Turning around to yell at the kids, retrieve things, or attend to a child in the back seat
Distracted drivers cause accidents and they should be held responsible for the injuries they cause. If you have been injured in an accident as a driver, passenger, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian, you may be owed compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A New York City car accident attorney at Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. is standing by to offer you a free case review to help you understand your options and provide you with more information on how we can guide you through the personal injury claims process.
