Inattentive drivers pose a significant threat to every nearby vehicle occupant, pedestrian, and bicyclist. New York’s distracted driving laws are aimed to prevent drivers from using handheld devices while driving. Unfortunately, those laws are frequently violated, and innocent accident victims are harmed as a result. Statistics show that texting while driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents in Long Island and across the state of New York.

Our attorneys appreciate reaching favorable settlement agreements for their clients because it saves all parties a lot of time, expense, and stress. We know that our clients usually hope to settle their cases outside of court, as well. Most of our car accident cases do settle before trial, but our attorneys do not take settlements for granted.
They prepare every case as if it will go to trial because they want to be ready if settlement negotiations are unsuccessful. Some attorneys will take the best offer that they can get from insurance companies for their clients and move on to the next case, but our attorneys do not work like that. Our attorneys look out for their clients’ best interests. If the insurance company settlement offers are unfair to you, our attorneys will be prepared to take your claim to trial.
Texting and driving is a risk that no driver should take. Studies have shown that a texting driver is just as dangerous as a drunk driver, and the resulting accident injuries can be equally severe. We have seen accident victims with brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and other acute and debilitating injuries. We have also worked with clients whose loved ones suffered fatal injuries in distracted driving accidents.
