For Motorists, Being Distracted Is No Excuse

Technology moves our lives at increasingly fast speeds. But while behind the wheel of a vehicle, the ways people often connect become hazardous. Sometimes, they are deadly.

If you have been involved in a distracted driving accident caused by cellphone use, you need a personal injury attorney who works hard to obtain financial compensation for you. If you experienced the tragic loss of a loved one because someone paid more attention to their mobile device than traffic signals, the law offices of Gilbert D. Sigala will hold them — and their insurance company — accountable for their irresponsibility.

Aggressive Trial Representation, Compassionate Client Service After A Distracted Driving Accident

We understand the convenience of cellphones. We also recognize the danger they can cause on California roadways. According to state law, use of hand-held devices is illegal during operation of a motor vehicle. For teen drivers, cellphone use may be prohibited altogether while driving. Sometimes the fines for breaking those laws are not enough to discourage their use while driving. But phones are not the only source of distraction for drivers. Anything that removes a driver's attention from the road, or their hands from the wheel, can be a problem.

Examples of distracted driving include:

  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Programming the radio
  • Applying makeup
  • Picking up something that fell over
  • Checking on the baby

While these are typical human actions, when they take place behind the wheel, they may cause tragic accidents. If another driver harmed you while focusing their attention elsewhere, they should be responsible for pain they caused you. Although accidents do happen, incidents involving cellphone usage are completely preventable.
