Drivers shouldn't text or talk on their cell phones or use other handheld devices while driving. Yet, despite a statewide law banning cell phone use behind the wheel, accidents happen every day due to a drivers' use of a cell phone or other electronic device.
At Jacobs & Dow, our attorneys represent clients throughout the state injured through the carelessness of other drivers. We can help you understand your options after a serious accident and explain the types of compensation available. We will take care of the legal issues for you while recovering from your injuries.
Distracted Drivers Are as Dangerous as Drunk Drivers
Research has shown that a person using a cell phone while driving has an impaired reaction time similar to that of a person who is legally intoxicated. When using a cell phone, a driver must take his or her eyes of the road for several seconds to type a text message or dial a number. If traffic stops suddenly ahead, the driver may not be able to brake in time to avoid crashing into the car ahead.
Our attorneys have extensive experience with all types of injury cases. Five of our lawyers are listed in "Best Lawyers in America." We will fight to get you fair compensation for your injuries. We have achieved substantial verdicts and settlements for our clients in these cases. The insurance companies know we will take your case to trial if they don't offer a fair settlement
We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. If there is no recovery, there will be no legal fee.
