New York Personal Injury Attorneys

Suffolk County Distracted Driving Accident Attorney

There has been an upsurge in distracted driving thanks to smartphones and other electronic entertainment devices, and innocent accident victims are paying the price. The state of New York has implemented laws banning the use of handheld devices while driving. These laws may help to curb some incidents of distracted driving, but it does not stop all distracted driving offenders.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a distracted driving accident, contact a Suffolk County personal injury attorney at Sullivan Papain Block McManus Coffinas & Cannavo, P.C. to schedule a free consultation. Drivers have a duty to drive safely and follow the rules of the road. When they breach that duty and cause an accident, they deserve to be held accountable for the resulting injuries and damages.
