Dedicated Chicago Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer

Experienced Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers in Chicago, Illinois

Distracted driving may be the single greatest crisis threatening Illinois motorists today. Studies have estimated that as many as 90% of auto accidents involve some form of distraction, and many of these crashes cause serious injury or even death. Of course, the most glaring example of distracted driving on the modern roadway is texting while driving. The advent of the smartphone has triggered an explosion of dangerous behavior, rivaling drunk driving as one of the deadliest perils in public life. There are many other types of distractions, though, and even those who resist the temptation to text can succumb to other, less obvious forms of distraction. This page will explore some of those distractions in greater detail. Regardless of the particular distraction that might have been involved in your accident, though, it is important for you to understand your rights to compensation under the law. Distracted driving is always negligent driving. Getting behind the wheel of a car represents an enormous responsibility, and the State of Illinois expects motorists to take that responsibility seriously. That means keeping one’s eyes, mind, and focus on the road at all times. In the hands of a distracted driver, a vehicle is an incredibly dangerous instrument. It threatens the lives of cyclists, pedestrians, passengers, and drivers alike. At Malman Law, we believe that by holding negligent drivers accountable for the damages they inflict, we can make Illinois a safer place for us all. That’s why we provide aggressive legal representation to each of our clients, seeking maximum financial compensation in every single case. If you’ve been injured by a careless driver, the experienced Chicago distracted driving attorneys at Malman Law can help. Please get in touch with our office as soon as possible.

Examples of Distracted Driving in Illinois

Common examples of distracted driving in Illinois include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Any other negligent use of a cell phone or tablet
  • Eating or drinking
  • Adjusting the radio / stereo system
  • Reading or writing
  • Studying a map
  • Focusing on billboards
  • Rubbernecking
  • Navigating with a GPS system
  • Adjusting air conditioning or heating controls
  • Operating a sunroof or moonroof
  • Turning around to address children in the backseat
  • Talking with other passengers
  • Engaging in horseplay while driving
  • Applying makeup or other cosmetics
  • Grooming / styling hair
  • Students rushing to finish assignments on the way to class
  • Trying to access items in the passenger areas
  • Many more

Distractions can be hard to prove. That’s why it is so important that you choose a lawyer with the experience it takes to competently litigate and negotiate your claim. The Chicago accident attorneys at Malman Law have spent the last twenty years fighting the biggest insurance companies in Illinois on behalf of the injured people of Chicagoland. Whatever the specific distractions or injuries in your case might look like, you can count on us to make a compelling case for the damages you’re owed pursuant to Illinois personal injury law.

There is never an excuse for distracted driving. It is a choice — one that subjects irresponsible drivers to financial liability. Unfortunately, the victims in these cases often have a hard time recovering the compensation they deserve because the insurance companies do everything they can to reduce their obligations. That’s where we come in. Malman Law has helped scores of distracted driving victims achieve substantial settlements and verdicts after suffering unfair injuries on the road. We understand these cases, we know what it takes to make insurance companies act fairly, and we are prepared to pursue the money you are owed aggressively. Please never fear that you can’t afford the cost or headache of a lawsuit. Our goal is to shoulder every bit of the stress for you. And thanks to our Zero Fee Guarantee, you will never have to pay us anything unless we achieve a successful outcome in your case, either in the form of an in-court victory or an out-of-court settlement. Please contact us at any time — day or night, 24/7 — to ask questions about your case. Our team is more than happy to talk you through your experiences, answer your preliminary questions, explain your rights, and identify any potential time limits that might apply to the filing of your claim. We can help you decide whether you’d like to pursue a lawsuit. The consultation is free, so please don’t delay — contact us right away. Simply call 888-625-6265 or complete our online consultation form to schedule a free appointment with our Chicago distracted driving attorneys today.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
