Austin, Texas 78701
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a reportable car accident occurs in the state every minute of the day. Over 3,700 fatal car accidents occur in Texas every year and thousands of other collisions occur that result in serious injuries. The Austin car accident rate is above the state average, the city gaining notoriety for its congested roadways. The Austin car accident lawyer team at The Doan Law Firm represents a growing number of distracted driving victims.
Austin Distracted Driver Accidents Continue to Rise
Each week, innocent people in Austin end up the victims of distracted drivers. These are men, women, and children going about their days when suddenly their lives are turned upside down because of the careless, reckless conduct of a distracted driver.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, prime examples of the behavior of distracted drivers that cause horrific accidents on Austin roadways include:
- Talking on the phone
- Talking to another person in the car
- Adjusting the radio
- Checking the GPS
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that at any given time during daylight hours about a half million drivers are talking on their phones. About 400,000 people are injured by distracted drivers in the United States each year, oftentimes seriously so. About 3,500 people are killed by distracted drivers in the country annually.
Justice in a Distracted Driver Case
In many ways, obtaining complete justice for injuries caused by a distracted driver is impossible. As mentioned, being the victim of a distracted driver severely alters the course of your life. With that said, you have the right to seek appropriate compensation following a car accident. Suitable compensation provides you at least some justice in the aftermath of a life-changing accident.
A Doan Law Firm Austin car accident lawyer fights for full compensation for an injured client. This includes money for losses like:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Property damage
- Permanent disability
- Permanent disfigurement
- Property damage or loss
A personal injury attorney will work tirelessly to obtain comprehensive financial compensation for a client. This includes recovery not only for existing losses but also for those you reasonably can be expected to face in the future. For example, after a serious car accident you may need ongoing medical care and treatment into the future. You may endure chronic pain. You may not be able to return to work for an indefinite period of time. These are all examples of ongoing losses for which we fight to obtain compensation for you.
