Distracted Driving Case
Illinois is a hands-free state, so all drivers on Illinois roadways should not be using their hands to hold or manipulate electronic devices. However, talking or texting and driving is not the only way a driver can be distracted.
If you or a loved one suffered an accident because of a distracted driver, you may need the help of an experienced lawyer to help you fight to get the compensation you need. The personal injury attorneys at Kurasch & Klein have experience with cases like yours and can help you fight for the justice you deserve.What is Distracted Driving?
Media campaigns have done a good job publicizing the problem of texting and driving. Still, there are many other ways a driver can be distracted, such as:
- Reading or manipulating an integrated navigational system
- Changing CDs, radio stations or other music players
- Eating and/or drinking
- Personal grooming
- Tending to children
Of course, distracted driving accidents can also happen when the driver has their hands on the wheel, but they are simply not paying attention to the road, signs, activity around them, etc.How a Lawyer Can Help after a Distracted Driving Accident?
Police officers routinely ask about cell phone use during an investigation of an auto accident, but other types of distractions may not be noted. An attorney with extensive experience handling distracted driving cases can help you investigate circumstances surrounding your accident. If the accident was caused by distracted driving, that could change the determination of liability, which can affect the compensation to which you are entitled under Illinois personal injury law.Fight for Justice after a Texting and Driving Accident
