When you are driving down the road, you might see other drivers doing a host of tasks that have nothing to do with driving. Some of the drivers on Wisconsin roadways are putting others at risk by applying makeup, talking on the phone, texting, eating, shaving or reading while they drive. While that might not seem like a big deal to those drivers, we know that it is a huge issue because of the safety factor.
A driver who is distracted by anything isn’t likely to react in a quick or appropriate manner to obstacles in the roadway. They might miss a car in front of them slowing down or stopping. They might drift over the center line or run through a traffic signal. All of those actions can lead to devastating accidents.
For people who are injured in any crash, even a distracted driving crash, the effects can be long-lasting. Just last week, we discussed how some people in accidents can suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. They can also suffer from physical injuries.
When you are injured in a crash, your primary focus has to be on getting the medical care you need. You might also decide that you need to seek compensation for your injuries. We can help you with the legal aspects of your case so that you can work on healing after the accident. We work hard to get you the compensation you deserve because there is no reason for anyone to be injured simply because a motorist wants to act in a selfish manner.
