Distracted driving also leads to disputes over who is responsible. Most, if not all drivers, that are on their cell phone or texting or otherwise not paying attention never admit responsibility unless there is an independent witness that can state otherwise. Therefore, the driver that is sitting behind the wheel in traffic and starts texting and then perceives that traffic is moving may move forward and then look up at the last second only to see that the vehicle is stopped in front of him or her. The next thing you hear as the victim is that you "suddenly" decided to brake for no reason. In actuality, the reason that the distracted driver believes this is because they are the ones without their eye on the road and when they focus on the road, the braking of cars looks like a surprise to them. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our staff and lawyers know how to deal with this lack of accountability. We discover the truth and use it to our client's advantage. To see if you may have a case against a potentially distracted driver, call the office for a free consultation.
