Accidents with this general cause — distracted driving — are the most galling because the behavior of the other driver is so thoughtless and so disrespectful. Because the driver was goofing off, you were injured … you lost pay … you required surgery and rehab … your life underwent a severe change.
At Strong Law Offices, we fight “extra hard” for victims of other drivers’ bad behavior, because what happened to you can happen to anyone. As a society, we must teach other motorists that driving is a privilege, that other people have rights, and that the cost of negligence will be the most expensive lesson they ever learn.
