Distracted Driving Accidents

Haverhill Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys

Experienced Massachusetts and New Hampshire Car Crash Lawyers

Insurance companies are notorious for attempting to minimize compensation paid on injury claims by deflecting liability and downplaying injuries. If you have been injured in a car accident, the insurance company may attempt to shift the blame for the accident by stating you were driving inattentively. However, many times, it is the other driver’s negligence that causes the crash.

At the law office of Finbury & Sullivan, P.C., many clients are coming to us after being injured in a car or truck accident that was caused by the other driver’s distracted or inattentive driving. Our Haverhill distracted driving accident lawyers can advocate for your rights and interests and pursue the full compensation you will need for your injuries.

Driver distractions are contributing to an increasing number of car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. Drivers who take their attention from the road — whether to view a text, answer a phone call or attend to a child in the back seat — jeopardize the lives of others. Traffic can dramatically change within milliseconds, and that is all it takes to cause a severe or even fatal crash. At Finbury & Sullivan, we represent accident victims who have been involved in a car accident or other motor vehicle accident due to another driver’s carelessness or recklessness. We handle distracted driving accidents caused by drivers who are focused on various other activities, such as:

  • Texting
  • Talking on a cell phone
  • Changing a radio station
  • Operating any electronic device
  • Putting on makeup
  • Focusing on children or other people in the vehicle
  • Smoking
  • Eating on-the-go
  • Any other form of distracted driving

Our New Hampshire and Massachusetts texting while driving lawyers seek accountability.

Driver distractions, particularly drivers who send, receive or read texts while driving, have become such as problem that both Massachusetts and New Hampshire have enacted comprehensive laws that ban texting while driving. Our Haverhill distracted driving accident attorneys work to demonstrate the negligence of the other driver and his or her carelessness in adhering to statewide texting and driving bans. We then demand that the insurance company stand up to its responsibility to provide the full compensation to which the accident victim is entitled.
