Distracted Driving: Your Rights After A Crash

It is illegal in California to use a cellphone while driving, but that does not stop inconsiderate individuals from risking the lives of others to make a phone call, send a text or check email.

Our injury attorneys at Neustadt & Berriz, APC, represent victims in Thousand Oaks and Ventura and throughout the San Fernando Valley in California. Distracted driving leads to serious injuries and fatalities. We are passionate about holding negligent drivers accountable for their actions and helping you find the best road to recovery.

Types Of Distracted Driving

Drivers become distracted easily behind the wheel. This is dangerous and can cause a serious accident. Distracted driving comes in many forms, including:

  • Texting while driving and other cellphone use
  • Eating or drinking
  • Dealing with passengers
  • Applying makeup

The negligence is clear when an accident involves a distracted driver. Our lawyers will pursue full compensation for victims of negligence. We will be your strongest advocate as we fight for a settlement or verdict that fully compensates you for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earnings and additional damages.

Getting The Medical Care You Need

Injuries suffered in car accidents have a nasty habit of remaining hidden for days or weeks after the accident. Adrenaline and the relief of being alive can make you feel fine immediately after a collision. Still, it is in your best interest to seek medical treatment immediately to preserve your ability to pursue a personal injury claim the moment you start showing any symptoms.

Even if you have done nothing wrong and do everything right in the aftermath of an accident, the insurance company will likely still shirk responsibility. If that is the case, we will not shrink from aggressively litigating a claim to obtain the financial compensation you need and are legally entitled to recover.
