Driving a car or truck requires the driver's full attention. Distracted driving — including but not limited to talking on cellphones and texting while driving — significantly increases the risk of serious, potentially fatal auto accidents.
At the law firm of Aiken & Scoptur, S.C., our Wisconsin distracted driver lawyers are dedicated to holding negligent and reckless drivers accountable. If you have been injured because someone else was driving distractedly, do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.
Was the Driver Who Hit You Using a Cellphone?
Texting while driving is illegal in Wisconsin. But even drivers who are just talking on their cellphones (which is still legal) can be held accountable when their distracted driving causes car accidents in which innocent people get seriously injured or killed.
Both talking on cellphones and texting can have significant consequences for drivers' judgment and reaction time. These distractions play a major role in many auto accidents.
Oddly enough, some people who have been in accidents will actually lie and tell the police they were talking on their cellphones when they were really driving drunk or doing something else illegal. Our attorneys are experienced at carefully scrutinizing and verifying police reports.
How Much Compensation Are You Entitled To?
If you have been injured by a distracted driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. In addition, if the driver's behavior can be considered reckless, you may be entitled to punitive damages.
