Helping Victims Injured By Texting Drivers

Text messages have become an extremely popular form of communication as they eliminate the need for a time-consuming phone call. However, despite the fact that texting while driving is illegal in California, people still continue to engage in this risky behavior. When an accident occurs, the consequences can be serious and sometimes deadly.

At the Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser, our background in insurance defense means we know firsthand how insurers operate. In many cases, they will try to deny your claim altogether or offer you an amount that is much lower than you may be entitled to receive. Our lawyers have the know-how to get you the maximum compensation possible.

Texting While Driving Is Dangerous

Texting while behind the wheel distracts drivers in a number of ways. First, it requires drivers to take their hands off of the steering wheel. If a situation arises where drivers need to react quickly, they would be unable to do so.

Second, texting requires people to take their eyes off of the road to look at the message. Doing this for even a few seconds can have serious consequences. According to distraction.gov, a vehicle can travel the same distance as the length of a football field if drivers are going 55 miles per hour and look down at their phone for just five seconds.

Injuries Caused By Distracted Driving Can Be Serious

While some people are able to walk away from a car collision unscathed, you may be left dealing with long-term injuries that will affect you for years to come. Our attorneys will investigate your accident thoroughly to determine the facts surrounding the crash. Often, other drivers' phone records will reveal if they were engaged in risky or negligent behavior at the time of the accident.
