Fairfield County Cell Phone Accident Lawyer
Cell phone-related accidents result in at least 1.2 million crashes per year.
All drivers have a responsibility to safely and responsibly share the road with others. That means drivers should avoid talking on their cell phones. Studies have found that talking on cell phones while driving - even if hands-free cell phone usage - raises the risk of accident.
According to a risk estimate in 2011 by the National Safety Council, 23% of all car fatalities are caused by drivers talking on a cell-phone behind the wheel. That equates to approximately 1.2 million accidents involving talking on cell phones.
Drivers who understand the dangers of texting while driving might think it's safe to talk on the phone. However, cell phone conversations are involved in 12 times as many crashes as texting, according to the NSC.
Cell-phone related accident injuries can be particularly devastating, because when drivers' eyes are taken off the road, they often don't have time to react to a potential hazard, causing many types of accidents, from rear-end crashes to rollovers. The result can be any number of car accident injuries, from broken bones to back and neck injuries to brain injuries. A fatality in a cell phone-related accident may be grounds for a wrongful death claim.
If you or a loved one was injured or killed, you need a Fairfield County cell phone accident lawyer on your side, working tirelessly to stand up for you. You need Vishno Law Firm.
Cell phone-related accidents can lead to difficult injury claims
Although cell phone-related accidents happen every day on roads such as I-95, the Merritt Parkway and Route 7, these accidents can be hard to prove. That's why Attorney Jeremy Vishno fights so hard on behalf of cell phone accident victims. Drivers might deny talking on the phone at the time of the accident. Depending on the circumstances, Vishno Law Firm may be able to access the cell phone records of the driver. We leave no stone unturned in our quest for the truth.
You did nothing to cause your accident. Another driver was talking, texting, accessing his email or even taking a photo at the time of your car accident. You shouldn't have to pay for that person's careless and negligent behavior.
Vishno Law Firm is ready to stand up for you
Attorney Vishno understands some people hesitate to contact a lawyer after a car accident. They might think they can negotiate a settlement on their own and end up with more money in their pocket. Studies have found, however, that people with legal counsel often end up with better settlements, even after considering the fees.
There's also peace of mind in retaining an experienced attorney who can handle the paperwork and the other details of the claim. Recovering from a car accident is not easy. Medical bills add up fast. You might be unable to go back to work. Insurance companies may try to bully you into accepting a settlement barely enough to cover your injuries.
