Drivers in Connecticut are required by law to drive safely, to pay attention to where they are going and to avoid unnecessary distractions. Unfortunately, not all drivers follow the law and accidents happen as a result. Some distracted drivers make cell phone calls. Others text or attend to children in the car. Others put on makeup, eat lunch or even read the paper while driving. Such unsafe driving activities cause serious accidents on Connecticut roads every day.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury caused by a distracted driver, you should consult an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows the law and will protect your rights. At Jacobs & Dow, we provide skilled representation to those injured by distracted drivers. Our New Haven lawyers are known and respected by judges, other lawyers and insurance companies throughout Connecticut.
Holding Distracted Drivers Accountable for the Harm They Cause
Accidents caused by distracted drivers would be avoided if people simply followed the law. If you have been injured by a negligent distracted driver, you are entitled to full compensation for your injuries, including payment for lost time from work, medical bills and pain and suffering.
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 the compensation you deserve. 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 distracted driving accident claims on a contingency fee basis. If there is no recovery, there is no legal fee at all.
