If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person, you need the assistance of a personal injury lawyer to help you win the compensation you deserve for lost wages and medical expenses. The spousal team of Michael and Laura Myers has experience on both sides of personal injury claims, so we are in a unique position to help you get a significant settlement if the actions of another person have hurt you. One of the most common types of personal injury cases we handle is distracted driving. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver in Knoxville, trust us to help you get the compensation you are entitled to.
Being Involved in a Distracted Driving Accident
Drivers get distracted on the road for a wide variety of reasons. Distractions often lead to accidents, and while many of the resulting crashes are minor, others are serious and cause severe injuries or even death. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, it is important to hire an attorney you trust immediately to ensure you receive any compensation you are entitled to. You may think you are only entitled to compensation if injuries from the accident left you with numerous medical bills, but this information is inaccurate. You should receive compensation for any of the following situations.
- Pain and suffering: Car accidents are scary, and you may be traumatized after the incident. You should receive compensation for the treatment you need to overcome your anxiety.
- Lost wages: If your injuries are severe, you may not be able to return to work for a few weeks or even months. You are entitled to compensation for the time period when you are unable to work.
- Medical bills: Whether you need to make a few visits to the chiropractor or get surgery to resolve an injury caused by a distracted driver, the at-fault party should be responsible for all of your medical bills.
- Property damage: You are entitled to compensation if a distracted driver damaged your vehicle.
Every case is unique, so we cannot guarantee which types of compensation you should receive. However, you can expect Michael and Laura Myers to analyze each case and determine which types of compensation apply to your situation. We will fight to get you the settlement you deserve.
Picking Up The Pieces After A Distracted Driving Accident
Distracted driving has always been a problem. There have always been people who have tried to multitask while driving, with sometimes devastating results. With the advent of smartphones, however, distracted driving has become an epidemic. According to Distraction.gov, a federal website on distracted driving, more than 3,000 people were killed, and more than 431,000 people were injured in distracted driving accidents in 2014. These tragic statistics do not even include deaths and injuries caused by drowsy driving, driving under the influence of prescription drugs, or driving while intoxicated.
Distracted driving has no place on our roads. However, if a distracted driver injured you or someone you love, it is important to work with a lawyer who will go the extra mile to help you recover the compensation you need. With many years of experience, Laura and Mike Myers at The Myers Law Firm have a strong record of success in all types of injury and accident cases.
