Injured in a Distracted Driving Accident in Kitsap County?
Kitsap County Car Accident Attorney
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. Whether the driver is talking on
a mobile phone, texting, talking to passengers, eating, putting on makeup
or other action, the dangers are very real. 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.
Statistics for Distracted Driver Accidents
In a recent year, over 3,000 innocent people lost their lives due to the
negligent actions of a distracted driver. The federal Department of Transportation
has asked car manufacturers to begin limiting the in-vehicle systems to
help to reduce the numbers of distracted drivers. Vehicles can now include
a GPS, music systems that sync with your digital device, in-vehicle video
systems and drivers can carry on other devices as well. The potential
for disaster by distracted driving has increased due to these factors,
which are added to the others that already existed. There are many drivers
that operate their vehicles in an inattentive manner generally, don't
signal or swerve from lane to lane without taking the time to ensure that
there is not a motorcyclist, bicyclist or other vehicle by shoulder-checking.
