Maine Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers
Our car accident attorneys help clients in Waterville and Portland
Driving safely requires drivers to keep their eyes on the road at all time but distracted driving has become a big problem and is the cause of many car accidents. Drivers and passengers are left with serious injuries. At Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC, our Portland car accident lawyers help them recover the financial compensation they deserve.
When drivers take their eyes off the road, they usually think it’s not a big deal because it’s only for a few seconds. What can happen in a few seconds? Plenty. During those few seconds, a car ahead may come to a sudden stop, or another car may pull out into the road. By the time the driver realizes what’s happening, it’s too late to prevent a crash.
Car accident lawyers who fight for your rights
Here are activities that cause distracted drivers to look away from the road:
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Talking to passengers
- Eating or drinking
- Grooming (applying makeup or checking their hair)
- Adjusting dashboard controls
- Using a GPS
Too often, the result of distracted driving is a serious car accident that leaves people hurt. Drivers and passengers can suffer injuries that require surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. The medical expenses for treatment can soon become overwhelming. If you are left unable to work, there is less money coming in.
Our experienced attorneys help people who have been injured in distracted driving accidents recover the financial compensation they deserve. We know the impact an injury from a car crash can have on people and their families. We fight back against insurance companies who try to pay you as little as possible.
Proving your accident was caused by a distracted driver can be difficult. That’s why we investigate the crash to get the facts. Our legal team gathers evidence. Our attorneys review documentation, such as accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts.
