Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer in NYC

Drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a responsible and conscientious manner. This means paying attention to the road, driving within the speed limit, and sharing the road with other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Unfortunately, there are a number of distractions that cause drivers to lose cognitive, manual, and visual focus on the task of driving and which dramatically increase the chance of a car accident.

Distractions that commonly cause car accidents include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Telephoning
  • Checking or writing emails
  • Eating or drinking
  • Grooming
  • Staring at or programming GPS maps
  • Turning around to yell at the kids, retrieve things, or attend to a child in the back seat

Distracted drivers cause accidents and they should be held responsible for the injuries they cause. If you have been injured in an accident as a driver, passenger, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian, you may be owed compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A New York City car accident attorney at Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. is standing by to offer you a free case review to help you understand your options and provide you with more information on how we can guide you through the personal injury claims process.

Texting & Driving is Illegal in New York

Texting has become one of the most common behind-the-wheel distractions all over the country and is a leading cause of preventable car accidents resulting in injury and death. In New York, it is illegal to text while driving, but unfortunately, many people still choose to engage in this highly distracting behavior. Texting while driving is especially prevalent among inexperienced teenage drivers. If you or a loved one has suffered harm because of a texting driver, turn to our firm for experienced representation. We leave no stone unturned in seeking maximum compensation for victims of texting while driving.
