When you’re on the road, it’s important to pay attention to the one thing that will save your life as well as help you get to where you’re going: driving. With the proliferation of smartphones and high tech cars, drivers can become distracted easier than ever before.
Distracted driving can take on many forms, including texting, talking on the phone, applying makeup, eating, and more. While you cannot control the behavior of other drivers on the road, you can (and should) hold them financially responsible for any injuries/damage they cause you. This is where a personal injury lawyer can help.
Our Dallas-based law firm will investigate the facts of your case for no charge, and if we feel that you have a strong case, we can even handle your entire claim for no cost to you. We work on contingency, meaning that we only get paid if we actually win you money. To have us review the facts of your case, give us a call 24 hours a day at 1-877-405-4313 or send us an email using the contact form found on this page.

Accidents usually happen in the flash of an eye. Getting distracted from the road for as little as 4 seconds can send your car careening down the highway and onto traffic on the opposite lane before you have the chance to do anything about it. In addition, your reaction time gets compromised when you are distracted, making it hard for you to take control of your car in a timely manner. We cannot stress enough the importance of keeping your eyes on the road at all times. One mistake could cost you your life, or the lives of other innocent motorists.
