Driving in the Chicago area is tough. The traffic, road construction, and speeding drivers are notorious for causing road accidents. When distracted drivers add to the challenges already present and cause accidents, they can be held responsible for the injuries and expenses that result.
At our law firm, our attorney assists clients who were injured by distracted drivers. We also file wrongful death lawsuits for the families of people who died in this type of accident. Whatever type of legal action we take, clients can rely on our firm to investigate thoroughly and to build strong cases.
Common Causes of Distracted Driving
Our attorney has handled distracted driving cases in which the accident was caused by other drivers who were:
- Talking on a cell phone
- Dialing a cell phone
- Applying makeup or shaving
- Looking at the GPS or a map
- Interacting with devices such as: tablets, cameras, MP3 players, and other portable devices
- Talking or interacting with others in the car, and not watching the road ahead of them
The behaviors above are even more dangerous if carried out by someone who is
drowsy or sleepy. Our car accident attorney has developed a legal strategy based on issues around sleep-deprived drivers. He has been at the forefront of using sleep deprivation combined with distractions such as those listed here to demonstrate that the driver who caused the accident was negligently impaired by fatigue.
