Waterville car accident attorneys who fight for you
A distracted driving crash can happen on Western Avenue, U.S. 201, I-95 or anywhere else in Waterville. Drivers and passengers can be left with serious injuries and medical expenses can add up quickly. They may need diagnostic tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors.
It's important for every driver to always keep their eyes on the road. Too many drivers in Waterville accidents allow themselves to be distracted by:
- Phone conversations
- Conversations with passengers
- Food or drink
- Glancing at themselves in the mirror
- Adjusting dashboard controls
- Using a GPS
They may think that taking their eyes off the road for a few seconds is not that big a of a deal. That is more than enough time for them to miss a car pulling out in front of them. Or a car in front coming to a sudden stop. Or the light changing. By the time they do notice, there is not enough time for them to react to prevent a collision.
Negligent drivers typically deny that they were distracted and don’t accept responsibility for causing the accident. Don’t expect help from an insurance company after a Waterville car accident. They are looking out for their own best interests. They will try to pay you as little as possible so they can keep their profits as high as possible.
