When Distracted Drivers Cause Serious Accidents
Despite Pennsylvania’s ban on texting while driving, people are seriously injured every day in accidents caused by drivers who choose to ignore the law. Sadly, many of these victims are killed. Victims have the legal right to seek full and fair compensation for the losses they suffer at the hands of distracted drivers.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a distracted driving accident, having a reliable Harrisburg attorney can help to ensure that your interests are protected. At Marzzacco Niven & Associates, we’re raising a voice as we provide aggressive representation to injury victims and families who are suffering because of a distracted driver’s negligence.
Committed To Obtaining The Best Available Outcome For You And Your Family
In all distracted driver accidents, due to texting while driving or any other cause, the potential for serious injuries goes up considerably. When drivers allow themselves to be distracted for any amount of time, they must take their eyes off the road. If traffic stops suddenly, the driver typically does not have time to hit the brakes before impact. These types of full-speed collisions frequently result in much more severe injuries.
We make it a priority to gain a complete understanding of your injuries. We determine how they will impact you over the short and long term as well as the treatment you will need. We seek full compensation for all of your current and future medical expenses, your property damage, and any other losses you may have suffered as a result of the accident.
A Record Of Results In Distracted Driving Cases
Attorney Christopher Marzzacco has lectured for The Pennsylvania Bar Institute, The Pennsylvania Association of Justice, and other legal organizations by educating other lawyers on representing distracted driving victims. Attorney Marzzacco has also authored an article in The Intelligencer in 2016 entitled “Issues Affecting Distracted-Driving Motor Vehicle Litigation.” Attorney Marzzacco has also been involved with EndDD.org, an organization started by friend and colleague Attorney Joel Feldman, which is dedicated to educating students about and preventing distracted driving.
Despite a law prohibiting texting while driving in Pennsylvania, crashes causing death and serious injury continue to occur on the state’s roadways. Distracted driving is not caused just by cell phone use. Almost anything that causes a driver to look away from the wheel, remove his or her hands from the wheel, or take his or her attention from the road, is distracted driving.
When it comes to commercial vehicles and drivers who drive distracted, Pennsylvania’s laws are even tougher. Often when commercial vehicles driven by distracted drivers such as tractor trailers, buses, and work trucks cause accidents, they result in wrongful death and catastrophic injuries.
Attorney Marzzacco is familiar with the laws in Pennsylvania governing commercial vehicles and distracted drivers of all types. If you or a loved one is catastrophically injured by a distracted driver, you need an experienced distracted driver lawyer to help you. Getting all the evidence necessary to prove a distracted driving case, such as cell phone records, vehicle “black box” data, in-cab video, and other information is vital.
