If you or a loved one suffer in a car accident because of someone else’s careless actions, you might be eligible for compensation. If a distracted driver took something away from you– your health, your sense of safety, or even the life of a loved one– they should have to pay for their mistake. 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.
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.

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:
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you or a member of your family were in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, you should make sure that they have to pay for what they put you through. Here at Chapman Injury Lawyers, we dedicate our efforts to making sure that the people of Indiana are taken care of after carelessness leads to unnecessary damages and injuries. If you would like to pursue the person who caused so much damage in your life, contact Chapman Injury Lawyers for your free consultation.
