Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers
Skilled Representation For A Distracted Driving Lawsuit
Just a few decades ago, there was little talk about the dangers of distracted driving, mainly because of the rarity of cellphone use. But today, countless numbers of drivers choose to multitask behind the wheel by using a cellphone or texting while driving. And study after study shows the risks of such behavior. The law firm of Bowles & Verna LLP in California represents individuals who have suffered bodily injury in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, and family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal vehicle accident.

What If The Other Driver Denies That They Were Distracted?
It is very common for drivers to deny that they were distracted after causing an accident, which is why our attorneys work hard to find evidence to support our claims. We may gather witness statements, video recordings from traffic cameras and even subpoena the driver’s smartphone records to show that they were texting or otherwise using their phone in the moments before the crash.
Are Some Distractions Worse Than Others?
Each of us handles distractions somewhat differently. Adjusting the car stereo may be much harder for one driver than another. There are three types of distraction:
- Visual: Anything that takes your eyes off the road
- Manual: Anything that takes your hands off the wheel
- Cognitive: Anything that takes your mind off the task of driving
The most dangerous distractions are generally those that involve all three elements. This is why cellphone use tends to be the most hazardous distraction behind the wheel.
