Seeking Full And Fair Compensation From Distracted Drivers

When drivers' eyes are taken off the road, every driver and passenger sharing the road is at risk. Technology is not required when drivers feel the need to "multitask."

They become blind to their surroundings when eating, shaving, applying makeup or changing the radio station. Tragically, they fail to notice traffic stopping suddenly or drifting into another lane. Reaction times are not only reduced, but also eliminated.

The aftermath can be catastrophic, resulting in serious injuries and death.

If distracted driving has resulted in injuries to you or a loved one, take immediate action by calling us before taking calls from insurance adjusters, making statements or signing documents. The law firm of Kelly, Symonds & Reed, LLC, holds negligent drivers responsible for life-changing collisions.

We Handle Cases Involving All Forms Of Distracted Driving

Technological advances have allowed people to call, send text messages, send emails or update social media anywhere they want. Unfortunately, some people choose to do this while driving a car, causing a person to become distracted and a danger to other drivers on the road. While electronic devices are the most likely "distraction," inattentive driving can take many other forms, including:

  • Eating behind the wheel
  • Changing radio stations
  • Reaching for items in the passenger or back seat
  • Reaching for things in the glove box
  • Putting on make-up
  • Taking off a coat or changing clothing
  • Trying to get something out of a pocket
  • Talking to passengers in the vehicle

Even taking your eyes off of the road for a few seconds is enough to cause a serious collision with another car, truck, bus, motorcycle or even a bicyclist or person in a crosswalk. Depending on the type of crash, victims may suffer minor injuries or more catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries and head traumas.
