Due to the rise in popularity of cellular phones, tablets and other mobile devices, distracted driving accidents have become increasingly common. When accidents are caused by texting while driving or any other form of distracted driving, it may be necessary to pursue a personal injury claim to receive full compensation for your injuries.
At The Law Offices of Daniel L. Crandall & Associates, we serve the needs of those hurt in any type of motor vehicle accident in Southwest Virginia and throughout the surrounding states. Our many successful results and client-centered approach to the law have led us to become one of the largest plaintiffs' personal injury firms in Southwest Virginia.
Since 1979, our lawyers have diligently protected our clients' interests. We have gained the experience and proven litigation strategies to pursue even the most complex claims. In texting while driving cases, our efficient methods make us especially adept at collecting evidence from the scene of the accident, obtaining records from cellphone carriers, retaining trusted expert witnesses and building powerful cases that we will take as far as necessary to ensure a fair outcome.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, sending or reading a text takes a driver's eyes off the road long enough for a vehicle to travel more than the length of a football field (when traveling at an average of 55 miles per hour).
Distracted driving is not limited to talking on cellphones or texting while driving, but also includes distractions such as:
- Grooming (brushing hair, shaving, applying makeup)
- Looking at GPS systems or maps
- Talking to passengers
- Changing radio stations or using CD players
- Using iPods and other MP3 players
Whether these or any other types of distractions cause an accident, our team of experienced litigators can protect your interests.
