As New Haven auto accident attorneys, we see this everyday: an accident caused by a driver who was fidgeting with cell phone while driving their car. These injuries can be quite serious leaving victims with exorbitant medical bills and loss of income. State law prohibits the use of handheld devices, including mobile phones, while operating a motor vehicle. The NHTSA reports that 20% of all accidents nationwide were caused by some distraction.
When our New Haven auto accident attorneys represent the victim in a case where a distracted driver is involved we build the case as if we are going to trial. We obtain cell phone data from driver’s service provider, medical records, police reports, and look into whether there are any other parties that might be liable for the accident. We are prepared when dealing with the insurance company.
Our New Haven auto accident attorneys know the tricks the insurance company will pull because we represented them for 15 years. Contact our office to schedule a free consultation either in our office, your home, or hospital.
