Distracted drivers continue to be one of the top reasons accidents happen. Drivers that are not keeping their eyes on the road ahead put all other drivers and their passengers at risk.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, contact Ramirez & Walker, Inc. immediately. The responsible party's insurance company must be forced to pay you damages. The recovery of compensation can be a frustrating process, as insurance companies frequently deny claims or try to reduce a settlement. We advise you to get legal representation to assist you in this process, as statistics show that those who have legal representation often recover an average of 3 times more in compensation.
