Representing People Injured In Crashes Caused By Distracted Drivers
Cellphones have come to play an important role in many people’s lives. Unfortunately, many drivers are unable to put their phone down when they are behind the wheel and this can lead to serious and devastating accidents. The attorneys at Joel L. Katz, L.L.C., understand how big of an impact a motor vehicle crash can have on you and your loved ones.
Holding Distracted Drivers Accountable
Maryland has strict distracted driving laws. Whether a driver is texting, checking emails, using headphones or earbuds, or even merely holding their phone for any reason while behind the wheel, it is illegal (and dangerous!).
A driver who takes his or her eyes off of the road for even a few seconds may cause an accident that has lifelong repercussions. While a distracted driver will have to answer to the law, injured victims and their families may continue to suffer long after the accident is over. Our Annapolis firm has over 40 years of experience advocating for injury victims and making sure that they have the resources they need to recover from both economic loss and non-economic damages.
Fighting On Your Behalf
Being in a car accident can be overwhelming. Depending on fault, an insurance company may offer you a settlement or resolution of your personal injury protection (PIP), property damage, etc., but chances are it will not be enough to fully cover all of your expenses. Vehicle damage, medical bills and lost wages are just some of the financial considerations you may be facing. In addition, you may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering the accident caused. We have your best interests in mind, and will work diligently to investigate all the facts surrounding your accident and aggressively negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that you are compensated fairly for your injuries.
