It seems that the more cell phone technology advances, the more people feel compelled to use it every moment of every day. Unfortunately, this includes making phone calls, sending text messages, getting directions, playing music and many other things while driving. When a person gets behind the wheel, his or her attention should be on safely operating the vehicle and nothing else. Failure to do so puts everyone else on the road in danger.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in an accident that was caused by a person who was using a cell phone while driving, you should speak to a cell phone usage and auto accidents attorney in Ohio who will work to protect your interests. At Gervelis Law Firm, we represent injury victims who have suffered at the hands of distracted drivers across Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Seeking Compensation for Your Current and Future Needs
Distracted driving, including talking while driving, in Akron can be extremely dangerous. When drivers take their eyes off the road to dial the phone, their attention can be diverted for several seconds. Traffic can come to a complete stop at any second and, if the driver is not paying attention, he or she may not have time to hit the brakes before causing a serious accident.
Our firm's experience with complex rear-end, head-on and broadside accidents caused by drivers using cell phones has given us a thorough understanding of the kinds of injuries that can happen and the type of medical care and financial support that is typically needed to facilitate your recovery.
We are committed to securing the full and fair compensation you are entitled to under the law. While we always attempt to negotiate a fair settlement in each case, our opponents know that we are fully prepared to take your case to court in order to protect your interests.
