Hazleton Lawyers for Aggressive and Distracted Driving Accident Claims
Distracted Driving and Its Impact on Your Life
As mobile communication technology has advanced, motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted driving have increased. Drivers more interested in talking on their cellphones, sending text messages or checking social media sites can injure you or a family member.
Insurance companies may claim to be on your side. However, their goal is to settle your claim for as little money as possible. Speaking to them before securing legal representation can compromise your case and leave your rights unprotected.
At Laputka, Bayless, Ecker & Cohn, PC, we fight to maximize compensation for medical needs, financial losses and other damages caused by the aftermath of an accident. We aggressively hold negligent parties accountable for inattentive or aggressive driving. While we will negotiate with insurance companies to secure the damages you deserve, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial.
