However, their insurance company is going to do everything they can to avoid giving you the full amount you deserve.You deserve the best possible chance of recovering compensation that is rightfully yours. To go over your case and ask questions with an experienced distracted driving attorney, contact Chapman Injury Lawyers at (812) 426-0600 to schedule your free consultation.

Why do I need a Distracted Driving lawyer?

If a car accident has left you with serious injuries, you probably have a lot of questions. You might be wondering who is going to be responsible for paying for the damages, how you’re going to pay your medical bills, and how you’re going to provide for yourself if you can’t go to work. An experienced personal injury attorney will have all the answers you need and will be able to guide you through the process confidently.Seeking compensation after a distracted driving car accident can be challenging. Your lawyer will need to investigate the accident to prove who is responsible, the extent of the damages and injuries, and how much compensation should be paid based on those injuries. It’s not something you want to take on by yourself, and it’s also not something you should have to do alone. Trust your case to someone who understands this specific type of law, someone who can make this very stressful process easy on you. Our team also works on a contingency basis, which means that we do not get paid until we win your case. If we don’t win, you don’t owe us anything.

Types of Distracted Driving and How Accidents Happen

There are many forms of distracted driving, all of which can lead to extensive damages and injuries and are a worthy cause for you to receive compensation if they were the cause of your accident. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the three main types of distracted driving are:

  • Visual- taking your eyes off the road
  • Manual- taking your hands off the wheel
  • Cognitive- taking your mind off of driving

The CDC also mentions that texting while driving is one of the most dangerous things you can do on the road because it entails visual, manual, and cognitive distractions all at once– your eyes are on your phone screen, your hands are on the keyboard, and your mind is on whatever your message is. If sending a text takes you 5 seconds and you are traveling at 55 miles an hour, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field without looking at the road. That’s enough time to cause irreparable damage to someone’s car, health, or even their life.

In 2015, distracted driving led to 391,000 injuries, according to the CDC. Additionally, distracting driving deaths, and both motor vehicle deaths and injuries overall have been on the rise for the last five years, with distracted driving as the cause of at least 3,477 deaths in 2015 alone. Drivers under the age of 20 are at the highest risk of distracted driving, and in 2017, 42% of high schoolers reported that they had sent a text while driving in the last 30 days. Students who said they were likely to text and drive were also more likely to engage in other dangerous activities like not wearing a seatbelt and driving under the influence.

Unfortunately, distracted driving is more common than you might think. Our lawyers believe that the best way to get people to stop doing it is by making sure that they know the gravity of the damage they caused by doing it once. If you make them pay compensation for those damages, they will be more likely to understand the impact that their actions can have on the lives of others.

Many different injuries can result from accidents caused by distracted drivers, including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries such as concussions or brain hemorrhaging, which can affect your brain temporarily, permanently, and can at times be lethal
  • Internal Bleeding and Organ Damage which commonly includes bleeding of the spleen, liver, or kidneys, and can require surgery
  • Broken Bones which commonly include fractures of the tibia/fibula, femur, pelvis, ribs, wrist, and clavicle
  • Spinal Cord Injuries which could result in paralysis or permanent disability
  • Wrongful death, or a fatal accident, which can change the course of your life forever

If your accident led to these injuries or any others, don’t accept what the insurance company offers you if it’s less than what you deserve. We will take care of you and make sure that you will be able to recover, both physically and financially, after your accident.

What should I look for in a good personal injury lawyer?

In a personal injury lawyer, you want someone who is experienced and has a good track record. You also want a considerate lawyer who genuinely cares about the outcome of your case. While the attorneys of Chapman Injury Lawyers are very proud of the outcomes we have achieved during our careers, we are even more proud of how satisfied our clients are and the impact our work has had on their lives.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

The cost of hiring one of our attorneys differs depending on many case-specific factors. Since we work on a contingency fee basis, you don’t have to pay anything until after we have won your case and recovered your compensation.

Which expenses are covered by an injury settlement?

In distracted driving cases, compensation will usually include payment for medical bills, rehabilitation, and physical therapy, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and more. We will discuss this with you in-depth during your free consultation.

After meeting with me, Neil Chapman was respectful but honest in helping me understand there wasn't much monetary value in my case. And knowing there wasn't enough money in my case to warrant me getting representation, he still took time to give me advice on how to proceed forward which was very helpful to me. He was courteous and professional. If I ever become involved in a more serious injury, I...
