Texting and Driving Accidents
A law firm that holds negligent parties accountable
Texting while driving is against the law in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, but the sad fact is some people do it anyway. This can easily lead to an accident that leaves people seriously hurt. The experienced car accident attorneys at Gervelis Law Firm hold negligent drivers accountable and help injured victims recover financial compensation.
When drivers are texting, their eyes are not on the road, both hands are not on the wheel and their minds are not on the act of driving. Texting drivers will often say they only looked away for a few seconds. But that is more than enough time for a car accident to happen.
A texting and driving accident can result in a wide range of injuries. These can include cuts, bruises and broken bones. More serious examples can include internal injuries, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury. Some victims may not be able to work while they are recovering from injury. Other may never fully recover.
The cost of medical treatment can become overwhelming very quickly. Victims may require diagnostic testing, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, home health care and months of follow-up appointments. And if they are unable to work because of an injury, there is less money coming in to pay the bills.
We help you fight back
Insurance companies are supposed to help injury victims, but they are mostly concerned with their bottom line. They will try to keep payments as low as possible and have lawyers to help them do this. For example, they may question the extent of your injury or even suggest that you were somehow to blame for what happened.
That’s why you need an experienced car accident attorney to fight for your rights. Our legal team investigates your accident to look for evidence that proves the other driver was texting at the time of the crash. We review documentation, interview witnesses and may even consult experts. We take nothing for granted.
Our attorneys focus on building a strong case that the insurance company has to take seriously. We make it clear we are prepared to fight for you in court. Many times, this convinces the insurance company that it is in their best interests to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs.
