Distracted Driver Accidents — A Growing Cause Of Serious Injury
Cellphone use and texting while driving have been banned in British Columbia since 2010. Yet, distracted driving continues on par with impaired driving as prime causes of car crash fatalities — and the trend only appears to be increasing.
Other causes of distracted driver accidents include grooming, eating, talking, reaching for objects inside the car and driving past scenic areas or accident sites. Whatever the source, reduced driver reaction time often translates into high-impact accidents with serious injuries.
The Complex Determination Of Liability
At Skands Law Corporation, we have fought hundreds of injury cases throughout Surrey, Langley, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Vancouver and New Westminster. Our lawyers have the skill to help you navigate both the claims process and the most challenging aspect of distracted driving cases — liability. We know where to find and how to analyze evidence in accident reports, witness testimony and other means such as cellphone records.
Our lawyers are committed advocates for those who suffer due to the negligence of distracted drivers. We will help you pursue the full range of accident benefits and financial compensation you deserve through two distinct claims:
- ICBC Part 7/no-fault benefits to cover expenses for medical and rehabilitative treatment, lost wages and homemaking care
- A personal injury tort claim against negligent at-fault parties to gain compensation for loss of future income-earning capacity, cost of future care, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment and other damages not covered in a Part 7 claim
