Hit by a distracted driver? Think about your legal claim

Distracted drivers make the choice to put themselves and others in danger. There isn't any reason for them to pay attention to other things going on around them. They simply aren't using their discipline and focus to do what needs to be done at the time, which is driving. People who are injured in these crashes might be angry that they have to suffer so much because of something so preventable.

When you are struck by a distracted driver, one important thing to remember is that you can't ever make it seem like you are taking responsibility for the crash. Instead, make sure that you think about how the statements you make might be taken. Something as simple as saying that you're sorry that someone was injured in the crash can be thought of as an admission of liability.

It doesn't matter who you are speaking to. You should always remain vigilant about what you are saying. You never know who is listening or who is going to serve as a witness if the personal injury case goes to a trial. This is why it is always best to think carefully about your words.

We realize that you might have suffered some serious injuries during the wreck. You should take steps to get those issues taken care of so that you are able to begin the healing process that is necessary to reclaim your life. The cost of medical care can be very high, as can other expenses related to the crash. These can be included in your claim for compensation, so make sure you think about this when you file your case.
