Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers in Chicago
If you’ve been injured, let one of our attorneys fight for you
All drivers learn the importance of keeping your eyes on the road, but many of them forget that lesson over time. Distracted driving is a big problem and a major cause of car accidents. At Keating Law Offices, P.C. our car accident attorneys fight for the rights of the injured and help them recover financial compensation.
People who are distracted drivers do not think it’s a big deal. In their minds, they are only taking their eyes off the road for a few seconds. This more than enough time for them to miss a turning car or a vehicle that stops in front of them suddenly. Drivers may be distracted because they were:
- Talking on a cellphone
- Talking to passengers
- Operating a GPS or dashboard controls
- Looking at themselves in the rearview mirror
When there’s a car accident caused by a distracted driver, people get hurt. A car accident can cause serious injuries. These include injuries to the head, neck or back, broken bones, burns, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injury. Recovery can take months or even years. Some victims never fully recover and are left with a permanent disability.
Our attorneys fight for the injured
An accident can also have a financial impact on your life. Medical expenses add up quickly and can soon become overwhelming. If you are left unable to work, there is less income coming in. It can be harder to make ends meet during this time. If you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, you deserve financial compensation.
Recovering compensation can be a complicated and challenging process. Distracted drivers typically deny doing anything wrong. Police who respond to the accident scene are trying to process everything as quickly as possible. So, without any evidence of distracted driving, there may be nothing about it on the police report.
Insurance companies aren’t much help. They are mostly interested in paying you as little as they possibly can to protect their profit margins. They may question the extent of your injuries. They may even blame you for partially causing the accident. They have lawyers fighting for their best interests.
That is why you need an experienced car accident attorney to fight for your rights. We know what to look for in cases involving distracted drivers. We know how insurance companies operate and how to fight back against their tactics. We fight to help the injured get the financial compensation they deserve.
