Driving a motor vehicle requires our total attention. Too many people think they can multitask while driving. It is all too common for people to talk on the phone, read or send texts, or perform other tasks while driving. This is a recipe for disaster.
If you or someone you love was injured by a distracted driver, it is important to work with a lawyer who can help you recover full compensation for these injuries. At Meub Associates, PLC, our Rutland distracted driving accident attorneys represent injured people across the state. We are determined to help people rebuild their lives after a serious accident.
Talking on the phone while driving is far more distracting than when a driver talks to someone else in the vehicle. When a driver and passengers are having a conversation, both the driver and passengers can still observe the road conditions. Reading or writing text messages may be even worse than talking on the phone. These distractions can impair reaction time, cause erratic changes in speed and other issues.
Vermont, like many states, has enacted laws barring texting while driving. Vermont has also barred drivers under the age of 18 from talking on the phone while driving. Despite these laws, many people continue to drive while distracted.
Our law firm will be with you each step of the way. We will look closely at all of the evidence to prove that the other driver’s negligent or reckless acts caused your accident. Although the majority of our cases are settled prior to trial, we will not think twice about bringing your case to a jury and judge if necessary.
At Meub Associates we have made it our mission to meet the many different legal needs of people across Vermont.
