Bronx Texting-and-Driving Car Crash Lawyer
Awareness of the dangers of texting behind the wheel are increasing as more and more serious car accidents are traced to this cause. This is just one form of dangerous distracted driving, however, and any activity that takes a driver's focus off the road can be costly or even fatal.
If you know or believe that a distracted driver caused your New York car accident, calling on an experienced attorney to investigate may be very important. At the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel, we pursue all avenues for proving fault and liability, such as gathering physical evidence, locating witnesses and gaining access to cell phone records if needed.
Determined, Resourceful Investigation to Support Your Claim
In some cases, our clients have actually seen what a driver who hit them was doing instead of focusing on the road — such as reading, applying makeup or dealing with children. More often, exposing this form of negligence requires specialized knowledge, experience and investigation. Signs that driver distraction factored into your car accident can include:
- Lack of any other explanation for a rear-end collision
- Evidence that the accident was caused by a driver who ran a stop sign or traffic signal, or who accelerated through an intersection when trying to beat the light
- Observation of "lane drifting" or other erratic driving behavior consistent with texting, talking on the phone or other distractions
Taxi cab drivers, semi and delivery truck drivers, and other commercial drivers cause many distracted driving accidents, and our training and knowledge cover the special nuances of such claims. If, for example, the at-fault driver in your case was talking on a cell phone, checking GPS or using other on-board devices, we will work the exact cause of the accident and maximize your recovery.
