What People Don't Know About Auto Accidents

Auto accidents happen every single day, by the thousands. There are so many different things that can cause these accidents and it's going to be up to you to figure out the facts. A car accident attorney will tell you that distracted driving is the leading cause of accidents today. People are too busy to just drive anymore, it seems, and it's taking a toll on lives and accident statistics alike. If you are driving and doing anything else, you are risking an accident that can easily be avoided if you take the time to focus on the road at all times.

Resources and experience available to an auto accident lawyer can give you the details about these accidents and help you understand exactly what you are dealing with. There are so many different resources out there, including state and national statistics and information databases, that you can use to learn all about car accidents and their prevalence. Distracted driving is the most common cause of accidents today and cell phones are easily taking the cake in terms of distractions. People who are talking, texting, or browsing the internet on their phones are causing a lot of unnecessary accidents on the roads today.

Cell phones, and more specifically, smart phones, are responsible for many accidents that lead to serious injuries and even deaths. The sad reality is that all of these accidents are completely preventable if people would just take a few minutes to put down their phones and focus on the roads. Teens are especially vulnerable in this type of situation because they aren't as experienced and can easily be distracted enough to lose control and cause an accident. Even though many cities and states are enacting bans on texting or talking on the phone while driving, not everyone is heeding the law.

A car accident attorney will tell you all about the staggering statistics involving cell phones and car accidents. So many people don't realize how serious this issue is because they have no troubles talking or texting while they drive. Unfortunately, everyone thinks that they can handle it until they get in an accident and are faced with the reality that they can't handle it. Weather, freak accidents, and a lot of other causes can be at the heart of car accidents, but today's drivers are seriously plagued by cell phones and their danger in distracting drivers from what they really should be doing on the roads.


Client Testimonials

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.
