Working with Your Greensboro Accident Attorney on a Distracted Driver Accident Case

Greensboro Accident Attorney, Personal Injury Greensboro, Mike Lewis Attorney, Disracted Driver Attorney

Despite laws here in North Carolina against distracted driving, many of them simply aren’t strong enough to combat those who continue to abuse the road. With so many people continually causing accidents from distracted driving, you need an accident attorney when a similar accident happens to you. Never should you take on these cases alone, or attempt to negotiate with insurance companies trying to get you to settle early.

Early financial settlements almost always lead to smaller amounts than what you deserve. This only brings more problems if you end up having to pay more for your medical treatments and don’t have enough settlement money to cover costs.

Here at Mike Lewis Attorneys, we’re here to help you gain the compensation owed to you when a distracted driver causes you serious injury.

The key to this is compelling evidence proving the driver was undeniably distracted. Currently, most of the North Carolina laws pertaining to distracted driving only limit it to adults. Those between 16 and 18 usually get off the hook, even though teens cause distracted driving accidents as much as those older.

What scenarios will we prove showing the driver hitting you had one or more distractions? Many of these scenarios go beyond just texting and talking on a cell phone. We’ll seek definitive evidence so there aren’t any doubts.

What Distracted the Driver?

So many distractions are common now on numerous mobile and other tech devices that it’s no surprise a driver could cause an accident. We’ll interview witnesses and look for other evidence showing the driver causing your accident was possibly watching a video on their mobile device, fiddling with radio or CD dials, or maybe distracted by their navigation device.

Other scenarios are sometimes caused by people, as in too many people talking in the car, or the driver turning their head while conversing. However, we see far too many people simply doing tasks they should wait and do at home. This includes reading, grooming in their rear view mirror, or eating and drinking while driving.

We’ll seek out traffic video footage if any is available proving the driver was doing any one of these things before hitting you. While we try to advocate better laws on distracted driving, we’ll work hard finding a way for you to seek justice when the laws fail you.

Contact us here at Mike Lewis Attorneys if you’ve just been hit by a distracted driver and have insurance companies trying to get you to settle early. We’ll handle the insurance companies while fighting for your rights so your medical bills get paid.
