Were You Injured By A Distracted Driver?
Motor vehicles are large, heavy machines that travel at high speeds, and car accidents continue to be one of the leading causes of death and injury. Drivers should dedicate their full attention to the road in an effort to avoid accidents and injuries. However, many people are distracted while behind the wheel. The result: serious and even fatal accidents occur.
Common distracted behaviors include:
- Talking on a cellphone without a hands-free device
- Texting while driving
- Checking social networking sites
- Browsing the Internet
- Using a GPS or other navigation system
- Eating or drinking
- Applying cosmetics
- Using an electric shaver
Maximize Your Claim for Compensation
After being injured in a car accident, it may be tempting to accept your insurance company's initial settlement offer. But beware. Insurance companies are only interested in one thing: their bottom line. Claims adjusters often undervalue accidents in an attempt to settle your claim as cheaply as possible.
At CNRWA, our car accident lawyers are highly experienced. We know what your claim is worth and fight to get you the compensation you deserve. We will fight to ensure the recovery you receive fully compensates you for your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
You only have one chance to recover compensation after an accident. Contact CNRWA to maximize your claim. Call us at 425-259-6111. Consultations are free.
