Gilbert, Arizona Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer
An Arizona attorney who gets straight to the point – and gets results
We all know it’s important to keep your eyes on the road when driving. But we also know there are many drivers who let themselves be distracted. Too often, this leads to a car accident that can leave people seriously injured. If you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, you deserve financial compensation.
But the claims process is complicated and insurance companies have the advantage. That’s why you need Browne Law Group. Attorney Byron Browne is an experienced Arizona car accident lawyer who knows how to take on insurance companies. He cuts through the bull and focuses on getting results.
A lawyer who understands the dangers of distracted driving
There are drivers out there who think they can multi-task. They take their eyes off of the road to do something else, but in their mind, it’s only for a few seconds. What can happen in a few seconds?
A lot can happen in a few seconds. A car in front of them may have to brake suddenly. Another car can pull into the road from a side street. The traffic light can change to red. A pedestrian can step out into a crosswalk. Or the distracted driver’s own car may start to drift into the other lane. By the time the driver looks up at the road a few seconds later, it’s too late.
There are different types of distraction when driving. There’s visual distraction, in which the driver’s eyes are not on the road. There’s manual distraction, when the driver takes their hands off the wheel. Then there’s cognitive distraction, when the driver’s mind is on something other than the task of driving.
There are many way drivers allow themselves to be distracted. Drivers could be:
- Talking on the phone
- Talking to passengers
- Using a GPS
- Adjusting dashboard controls
- Eating or drinking
- Reaching for an object in the car
A distracted driving accident can leave victims with serious injuries. Common injuries include broken bones, head and neck injuries, concussion and traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, herniated discs, and damage to internal organs.
Attorney Byron Browne will fight for the compensation you deserve
If you were hurt in an accident involving a distracted driver, your life can be impacted in many ways. You’re in physical pain. Medical expenses are adding up quickly. You may not be able to work because of your injuries, resulting in a loss of income. This can lead to financial and emotional stress.
But recovering financial compensation can be complicated. Distracted drivers often don’t admit to doing anything wrong. Not only do they refuse to accept responsibility – they may even blame you for what happened. Don’t expect any help from insurance companies. They are not on your side. Their goal is to pay as little as possible.
An insurance adjuster may contact you soon after your accident with good news. They’re offering you a settlement. This may come just as you are wondering how you’re going to pay your medical bills. The problem is that their offer will not come close to covering all of your damages. That’s why you should never accept a settlement without getting legal advice.
Insurance companies handle claims every day. They have adjusters who are looking for ways to pay you less. They have lawyers to represent their interests. Who will fight for what’s best for you? Attorney Byron Browne has your back.
When insurance companies fight your claim, we fight back
We know how insurance companies operate after an accident. They may question the seriousness of your injuries and argue they aren’t that bad. They may try to argue your injuries were pre-existing. They may also blame you for the crash in an attempt to limit the amount of compensation you can recover.
Byron Browne does not put up with these B.S. tactics. He builds strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously.
Our legal team will investigate your accident. We know where to look for evidence that the other driver was distracted. For example, there may be video of the driver taken by a traffic camera. We can also seek access to cell phone records. Our team carefully reviews accident reports and other documentation. We interview witnesses.
Byron Browne determines the total damages you suffered and demands compensation. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries, lost wages if you can’t work, and other damages such as pain and suffering. He will take a tough stance in negotiations until they agree to a settlement that meets your needs.
