Car Accidents Caused By Texting While Driving

Connecticut law bans all drivers from talking or texting on a handheld device (cellphone) while driving. Unfortunately, this texting and driving law does not always deter motorists.

If you have been injured in a car accident by a driver who was texting while driving, speak to an experienced lawyer about your legal options. At the New Haven law firm of Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we have represented injury victims since 1988. Our experience allows us to put together aggressive legal strategies that help obtain the best possible outcome in your case.

The Impact Of Texting While Driving

A study by Carnegie Mellon University showed that cellphone use takes away nearly 40 percent of brain activity from driving. Virginia Tech Transportation Institute reports that texting while driving is the equivalent of driving the length of a football field at 55 mph — without watching what is in front of you. These staggering statistics give clear proof why distracted driving is the equivalent of a ticking time bomb.

For our clients, that time bomb went off. The only statistic that matters is whether we were successful in making the negligent party pay.

Our New Haven texting accident attorneys thoroughly prepare every case, gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses and obtaining medical reports. We want every resource available to us, so we can challenge lowball settlement offers and show the insurance company that we are serious about demanding a fair settlement.

If we think that the insurance company will refuse to offer the compensation you deserve, then we will take your case to trial. You can count on us to fight for your rights and your future. We want you to walk away knowing that you and your family will be all right despite being car crash victims.
