It is no secret that car accidents caused by driver distraction are on the rise. Top on the list is texting while driving, but there are other ways a driver’s attention can be diverted from the road. It literally takes only a few seconds for a driver to be doing something other than driving attentively, resulting in a dangerous or deadly accident.
The driver does not have to be speeding or otherwise driving recklessly for a serious accident to occur, causing property damage, injuries and death. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused, even if only in part, by another driver who was distracted, you need the help of a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer to take action and help you to pursue fair compensation for damages. The damages sought are both economic and non-economic.
