Last week on the blog we discussed a new technological device that detects whether a text message was sent or read in the moments leading up to a car accident. It may seem like a strange concept, but the truth of the matter is that distracted driving is far too common, most frequently taking the form of texting and driving. Motorists who choose to take their eyes off the road in order to engage their mobile devices put themselves and others at risk, as they may swerve into another lane, blow past a stop sign, or fail to yield to a pedestrian at a crosswalk. The saddest part of these wrecks is that they are completely preventable, which is what the textalyzer is trying to show.
Unfortunately, though, as helpful as this technology may be, many Hoosiers will continue to fall victim to negligent drivers. These victims can face extensive losses, including physical pain and suffering, the incurrence of overwhelming medical expenses, and the devastation of lost wages. Some victims find themselves permanently disabled, and their long-term medical and rehabilitation costs can be significant. This is why accident victims need to consider seeking legal assistance as they try to recover compensation for their damages.
The attorneys at Danks & Danks have handled countless personal injury claims stemming from car accidents. We therefore know what the court and jurors are looking for when trying to determine if negligence occurred and whether it caused the victim's injuries, and we gather and present evidence to help them make findings in our clients' favor.
Not only do we have a strong track record of success in imposing liability on those who have acted negligently, but we also take pride in our ability to recover compensation that satisfies a significant portion of, if not all of, our clients' losses. These matters are rarely easy, though, as defendants often want to avoid taking responsibility at all costs. Therefore, if you have been injured in an auto accident, we encourage you to fully consider your legal options before moving forward with a claim.
