These accidents can be some of the most dangerous on the roads of California because they often involve the vehicle crossing the center line and not even hitting the brakes before an impact.
If you are the victim in a crash where the other driver may have been distracted, be sure to call our offices right away.

Distracted driving can actually mean any number of different ways in which the driver had his or her attention pulled away from the job of operating the vehicle.
Among the possible ways that a driver can be distracted include:
- Cell phone usage
- Eating while driving
- Fiddling with the radio or CD player
- Looking in the mirror to check makeup or hair
- Reading a map for directions
If the accident has left you unable to work or facing a mountain of medical bills, you may need to take further legal action rather than just relying on the insurance settlement.
