Distracted driving is the top cause of car accidents in the United States. Though drivers have had plenty of distractions in the past, with smartphones, mp3 players and the like at our fingertips, the roads have become more dangerous than ever. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that over 3,000 people were killed by distracted driving in 2017 alone, and unfortunately, this number is still in the thousands annually. In the majority of these cases, teenagers are involved, which is why here at the Ruben Law Firm, we believe it is vastly important to educate our youth about the dangers of distracted driving long before they are of age to get behind the wheel of an automobile. All it takes to cause a serious accident is a split second, and if your eyes are not on the road, any number of things can happen. Unfortunately, some of the most serious injuries are also caused by distracted driving, which is why if you are someone who was recently injured in an accident due to a distracted driver, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you get back on your feet again. Please read on to learn more about how our experienced Maryland firm can help you.
If you have been injured by a distracted driver, you must retain the services of an experienced attorney who knows how to satisfy the burden of proof. Simply put, to win a personal injury claim, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party's negligence. Our firm can work to uncover various forms of evidence, including pictures of the accident, security camera footage of the accident, witness statements, and more. In certain cases, we can even use phone records to prove that the driver was texting at the time of the accident, thereby causing your injuries.
That being said, ensure you file your claim within the state's statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is three years, giving the wrongly injured three years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the negligent party.
