Watch Out For Distracted Drivers At Intersections

Drivers don't always have their eyes or minds on the roads today. There are all sorts of things that can distract them when they are behind the wheel. For example, cell phones are great for keeping in touch with friends and family.

They make it possible for persons to access the World Wide Web for fun or research purposes. Heck, folks can even stay entertained and amused thanks to apps on the devices. However, when a person looks away from the road, even for just a brief moment, to check a text or notification, catastrophe could be in store for them as well as others on the roadways.

Food in the car is something else that can prove to be a big no-no. Sure, many people are pressed for time continually, but still, they should consider taking a break to eat their lunches now and again. Why? Well, for starters, if all a motorist is worried about is alleviated the hunger pangs in his or her stomach, they might not be paying as much attention to their surrounding as they should. Additionally, if a person is driving along and spills a drink on their lap, their eyes will likely dart away from the road while they attempt to see what happened and clean the mess.

A Crash Could Result From Distracted Driving

The list of activities that distract motor vehicle operators could go on and on and on. The acts are negligent and often lead to collisions. For instance, if a person is on the phone, eating, playing around with passengers, or doing something else, he or she may fail to see a stop sign. In turn, they will barrel through the intersection without even so much as applying the breaks. Should another car happen to be passing through at precisely the same time, the reckless operator could T-bone the vehicle.

Then again, if a motorist is stopped at the intersection, waiting for his or her turn, and a negligent driver doesn't see them, a rear-end collision may become part of the equation. Not to mention, should a person not have their eyes on the road, they could potentially drift into another lane while running a stop sign. Thus, a head-on crash might enter the picture.

Drivers And Passengers Can Sustain Injuries In Such Incidents

Car crashes are not forgiving. Rather, the twisted metal, busted glass, and fires that break out can leave participants with severe and lasting injuries. Persons sometimes take weeks, months, or even years to recover from the issues. No two accidents are the same, meaning that damages will vary on a case by case basis. However, some of the common ailments that leave victims unable to work, attend school, or do much of anything include but are not limited to...

• Fractures And Broken Bones
• First, Second, And Third-Degree Burns
• Loss Of Limbs
• Organ Damage
• Traumatic Brain Injury

Don't Get Stuck Paying For Injuries That Were No Fault Of Your Own

It is not like healthcare is cheap these days. Visiting the hospital, receiving surgeries, follow up doctor appointments, and medications are bills that are quite challenging to pay. Why should you be left responsible for such expenses when someone else caused your problems? You shouldn't. If it can be proven that another party acted negligently, you may be entitled to fair compensation.

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
