Texting And Driving: The New Danger

There is no question that drivers today are more distracted than ever before. At any stoplight, you're likely to see drivers talking or texting on a cellphone. Auto manufacturers are now installing dashboard features that are supposed to make our lives easier, but require taking our eyes off the road to get the settings correct. In recent years, accidents caused by cellphone use and distracted driving have surpassed accidents resulting from drunk drivers on our roads and highways.

If you were injured or have lost a loved one in a car accident caused by a driver using a cellphone in the Lehigh Valley, you can turn to the Law Offices of Edward P. Shaughnessy for help. I am a local lawyer who understands the local courts and insurance procedures to help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries or wrongful death of a family member.

Never Settle For less

Even if you have a slam-dunk case against a distracted driver who was talking or texting on a cellphone, it is always a good idea to discuss your car accident claim with an experienced lawyer. The amount you are entitled to may be a lot higher than the insurance company wants you to know.

Don't rush to accept a quick offer. The insurance settlement may look good on paper, but it may not cover the total amount of your financial damages over a lifetime. I offer a free consultation to explain your rights and determine whether you could seek additional compensation.
