Far too many car accidents in Los Angeles are the result of texting and distracted driving. It is a growing problem throughout Southern California. My name is Howard Craig Kornberg and I am a Los Angeles texting and distracted driving accident attorney. Advances in technology provide many positive benefits to our ability to communicate, find a location on a map, and add safety while traveling. Pressures on the automotive industry to add safety features date back many years. Seat belts, airbags, and other features generally reduce the risk of harm in an accident, unless the safety feature includes a defective design. However, with many technological advances invading our culture, there is another side to the coin. Distractions from texting while driving, talking on a cell phone, adjusting a DVD player for the kids in a van, or setting a GPS device can lead to serious accidents.
The use of technology is not the only form of distraction. Anytime a driver takes his or her eyes off the road — even if for a second — the risk of a motor vehicle wreck substantially increases. Distractions can involve a wide range of activities that many drivers in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California engage in every day. Eating while traveling to a meeting, brushing one’s hair or other forms of personal grooming, and talking animatedly to passengers which takes attention away from the road are far too common.
When a person has suffered injuries from a car accident due to the negligence of a distracted driver, it is vital to have an experienced car crash lawyer on their side with a track record of helping clients recover the maximum compensation to account for their medical bills, damages, and lost wages. Uncovering evidence of distracted driving frequently takes the diligent efforts of a skilled personal injury legal team. Negligent drivers rarely admit responsibility for cellphone use. The legal team at the Los Angeles Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg is thorough in investigating every potential cause and contributing factor in an accident to build a strong case to prove driver negligence.
We do not rely solely on police reports when there is a suspicion that distractions were involved in a crash. We double-check and triple-check the facts surrounding the car, motorcycle, and truck crashes. We look for potential witnesses who may have personal knowledge of a distraction in the case. Surveillance videos near the scene may often contain valuable evidence that should not be overlooked.
If you or someone you know has been injured due to a distracted driver, it is important to seek representation from a car accident attorney who gets results. Our legal team works hard every day to prepare solid cases to protect the rights of our clients.
