New Haven Distracted Driving Accident Attorney
Despite a statewide ban on texting and using hand-held cell phones while driving, motorists throughout Connecticut routinely break the law, placing themselves and others in danger. In addition to cellphone use, drivers can also be distracted by a number of other things, including children, the radio, reading the paper and various other causes.
When distracted drivers cause accidents that result in serious injuries to other people, victims have the right to be fully compensated for their losses. These are extremely complex cases that require the attention of a qualified personal injury lawyer. At the Law Office of Carl A. Secola, Jr., LLC, I offer my clients nearly 30 years of experience in the handling of distracted driving auto accident cases.
Texting Accidents Can Be More Dangerous Than Drunk Driving Accidents
Research indicates that a person who sends a text message while driving is at least as likely to get into an accident as a person who is legally intoxicated. When a person is typing a text message while driving, he or she must look away from the road for several seconds. If the traffic ahead stops suddenly and the driver is not paying attention, there is a strong likelihood that he or she will not have time to hit the brakes before hitting the car ahead.
These types of full-speed collisions have the potential to cause severe injuries to the people in the victim’s car as well as anyone who is riding in the distracted driver’s car. I have successfully represented clients in a broad range of distracted driving accidents. I work with a network of skilled accident reconstructionists and other experts who can help me present the most compelling possible case in support of your claim for damages.
