New York Personal Injury Attorneys

Long Island Distracted Driving Accident Attorney

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. 

If you or a loved one has been injured in a distracted driving accident, contact a personal injury attorney at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath Coffinas & Cannavo, P.C. to schedule a free consultation. We know that the consequences of distracted driving are often devastating, and we will fight to see that you secure the financial recovery that you deserve.  

Our Distracted Driving Injury Team

  • Our attorneys are experienced in distracted driving accident cases. We will collect valuable evidence, such as witness statements and cell phone records, to prove that the driver was distracted at the time of the accident. Proof of the other driver’s distraction will help to strengthen your case.
  • New York’s no-fault insurance laws are complicated, and collecting financial compensation from insurance companies can be very challenging, at best. Our personal injury attorneys will advocate for maximum financial recovery in your car accident claim. 
  • Each client and each case is personal to our attorneys, and they will give you and your family the attention that you deserve. They will meet with you to discuss your claim, and remain in contact with you throughout the legal proceedings. 

Settlement Agreements And Trials

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. 

Distracted Driving Accident Injuries

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.
