Experienced Representation in Distracted Driving and Texting While Driving Accidents
On highways, interstates and roadways throughout northern Illinois, drivers who pay more attention to their phones than the road cause numerous accidents resulting in serious injuries and fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a distracted or otherwise negligent driver, there’s no need to go through this difficult time on your own.
An Aurora Personal Injury Firm Committed to its Clients
At Amoni Law Offices, P.C., we have been handling motor vehicle accident claims for more than 30 years. In that time, we have watched as accidents caused by drivers talking or texting on phones and other devices have increased significantly. By combining our knowledge of the law with an unwavering commitment to the people we serve, we arm accident victims and their families with the legal resources to hold negligent drivers accountable and secure maximum compensation.
Illinois, like numerous other states, has laws against texting while driving. Additionally, schools and others are reaching out to young drivers to educate them as to the dangers of distracted driving. Although these efforts may reach some, texting while driving and other forms of negligence remain among the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents. Pedestrians and cyclists are particularly vulnerable to distracted drivers, as are motorcyclists.
Other negligent behaviors that can lead to a crash include:
- Using a GPS or other navigation system
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Rowdy or disruptive actions by passengers
- Reaching for things in the vehicle
- Attempting to manage children
- Adjusting the stereo or another device
- Using social media or other applications on a cellphone
Our attorney will investigate thoroughly and determine if the other driver involved in your accident was using his or her cellphone or otherwise driving while distracted. We will use this evidence to establish that the other driver’s liability was aggravated liability or even willful conduct, which may result in a more favorable outcome when pursuing compensation.
