Denver Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer

While there are new texting while driving laws and laws that govern cellphone use in vehicles, these are often disregarded. It is now illegal in Colorado to text while driving, and anyone under the age of 18 is prohibited from using a cellphone at all while driving. Unfortunately, when these laws are broken, other drivers are at risk, as distracted drivers can cause serious and fatal accidents even if they only take their eyes off the road for a second. At the Law Office of James H. Guest, we have decades of experience handling all types of personal injury cases, including those involving distracted drivers. It is our goal to obtain compensation for injured clients and their families to help them move on from their losses, including lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Contact us today online or by telephone at 303-292-2992 to speak with an experienced Denver cellphone car accident attorney.

Lakewood Texting While Driving Car Accident Lawyer

When a driver is texting while driving, he or she is paying more attention to what is being typed than to what is happening on the road. When distracted driving accidents occur, other drivers and passengers often suffer serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, serious lacerations and abrasions, amputations and burns. There can also be fatalities, which may result in grounds upon which to file a wrongful death claim. Texting while driving is not only negligent, but illegal, and drivers must be held accountable for their actions.

Other Types Of Distractions

In-vehicle distractions are nothing new. They have existed since the beginning of the driving age. However, with the increase in cellphone use, distractions are now more frequent than ever. Regardless of the distraction that resulted in the accident that caused your injuries, our firm can help. We stand up for injured clients around Denver after they have been in an accident due to another driver:

  • Eating while driving
