By now, hopefully everyone knows that distracted driving, such as texting or talking on the phone while you’re behind the wheel, can lead to extremely dangerous situations. Distracted drivers can miss stop signs, run red lights, and fail to yield, all because what is on their smartphone is more important than what’s happening on the road in front of them. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident that was caused by a distracted and negligent driver, the attorneys at Halpern & Associates in Los Angeles can aptly handle your case.
Many drivers use hands-free headsets and voice integration through their car to talk on the phone or text while driving. While this has made communicating while driving safer, there are still those drivers out there that take their eyes off the road to read a text or respond to a call. That split second of distraction can drastically change a person’s life. If that driver runs a light or fails to stop and crashes into another car, the other driver could sustain serious injuries. If it can be proven in court that the distracted driver’s negligence caused the accident, then the injured driver could be entitled to substantial damages and compensation.
The expert legal team at Halpern & Associates can pair you with an auto accident attorney that understands your case and how to bring it to a successful conclusion. Above all, we want your needs to be met and for you to have the greatest opportunity to return to a normal way of life following your accident.
