Helping Victims of Cellphone-Related Distracted Driver Accidents
We live in an age of connection and communication. As a society, we are becoming increasingly dependent on e-mail, cellphones, smartphones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and all the latest gadgets. Unfortunately, when people use these communication devices while driving, they are taking their hands off the wheel, their eyes off the road, and their focus off of traffic.
These heightened distractions can lead to serious accidents, injuries, and fatalities. In fact, according to the United States Department of Transportation, texting while driving is one of the most alarming forms of distracted driving because it involves all three main forms of distraction: manual, visual, and cognitive.

Distracted Driver Accident Attorneys Fighting for You
Colorado is among many states that have restricted cellphone use while operating a motor vehicle; in Colorado, it is illegal to text while driving. Sadly, these laws are still largely ignored, and the result is all too often a catastrophic car accident.
Our personal injury lawyers represent clients who have sustained back injuries, neck injuries, head injuries, and other serious injuries due to accidents caused by drivers who are talking on their cellphones or violating Colorado’s texting while driving ban.
This includes car and truck accidents caused by:
- Drivers who were composing or sending text messages, or media files
- Drivers who were viewing texts, images, or video files
- Drivers who are composing, sending or viewing e-mail on their phones
- Drivers who are otherwise focused on their phones
Our lawyers thoroughly investigate the car wreck and expose the negligence of the other driver. We work closely with you, your doctor, and life-planning experts to document the extent of your injuries and the impact your injuries have on your life both now and into the future.
We work diligently to prepare for trial, which often leads to maximum compensation for our clients — whether through a negotiated settlement or jury verdict.
