Getting Justice And Compensation For Victims Of Distracted Driving Accidents
Driving safely may be your number one priority every time you get on the road. However, you can’t control what other drivers do when they get behind the wheel. The poor decisions they make can lead to a serious car accident.
Although Illinois driving laws prohibit hand-held cellphone use, there are many drivers who ignore these laws and put your safety at risk. Our personal injury lawyers at Callis Papa & Szewczyk, PC, are committed to holding negligent drivers responsible for causing preventable motor vehicle accidents. Whether you were involved in a collision at work or on your own time, we strive to get the maximum compensation you deserve.
What Is Distracted Driving?
Most people associate talking on the phone with distracted driving, but this is not the only behavior that can take a driver’s focus off the road. These activities also prevent drivers from paying attention to other vehicles and road conditions:
- Reading or sending text messages
- Operating the car’s infotainment system
- Eating or drinking
- Talking to car passengers
If a driver engages in an action that is not required to operate the vehicle and the action limits the driver’s ability to drive safely, this action could be considered a distraction.
How Distractions Can Lead To Accidents
Distracted driving is dangerous because it reduces a driver’s response time, increasing the likelihood of a collision. Whether the distracted driver is operating a car, SUV or a commercial vehicle, these heavy vehicles can cause severe damage in a crash. Without qualified assistance, you could be financially responsible for paying to repair your car and get the medical care you need.
Our attorneys have immense experience with the Illinois legal system and with car accident claims. We will tirelessly pursue full compensation for your injuries.
