When distracted driving occurs, motor vehicle crashes can be devastating. In addition to experiencing significant property damage, many individuals suffer serious, and sometimes permanent injuries, and some even lose their lives. If you or your loved one has become the victim of a car crash that involved distracted driving, you may be entitled to more financial compensation than you realize. Don’t let the insurance company minimize your pain. Our law firm can help you recover damages including lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and punitive damages.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), crashes that involve distracted driving injure approximately 1,161 individuals and take the lives of more than 8 people every day in the United States. In fact, in 2014, an estimated 3,179 individuals lost their lives to crashes involving distracted driving. While there are laws in place in Nevada that make some kinds of distracted driving illegal, a shockingly high number of drivers still allow distractions to interfere with the safe operation of their vehicles. You shouldn’t have to pay for their poor decisions.
While cell phones are often the first thing that comes to mind when individuals think about distracted driving, they aren’t the only problem. Things like eating and drinking, adjusting the stereo, and even talking to passengers can be deadly distractions as well. In fact, anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road can cause a crash. There are three types of driver distractions that can be a potential hazard.
When a motor vehicle crash occurs, it is common for insurance adjusters to swoop in as quickly as possible before the victims have time to realize the extent of their injuries. They often make low-ball settlement offers, try to place blame on the victims, and even attempt to deny claims. These tactics leave many victims without the financial compensation that should rightfully be theirs. Don’t fall victim to the insurance company’s scheme.
