Fort Collins Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys

Fort Collins Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys

Lawyers in Larimer County for Victims of Crashes Caused by Cell Phone Use

Estimates from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report that distracted driving kills more than 3,000 people every year in the United States. An additional 400,000 victims suffer injuries—many of which are extremely serious. While these numbers may not seem particularly high, they only represent the primary cause of the accident as determined by authorities. Accidents caused primarily by speeding or drunk driving, for example, often involve driver distractions of some kind as well.

At Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., our experienced car accident lawyers know how fast your life can change as the result of a distracted driving accident. You could be facing months of physical healing and rehabilitation, mountains of medical bills, and the inability to work for the foreseeable future. If you have been injured by a distracted driver, we are equipped to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Cell Phone-Related Crashes in Northern Colorado

There are many ways in which a driver can be distracted, but the rise of digital technology has increased the dangers for motorists nationwide. The laws regarding the use of cell phones while driving in Colorado are relatively permissive, giving many drivers a false sense of security even as they are texting behind the wheel. Any driver who uses a cell phone while they are driving—whether to make a call, send a message, or just check the weather—puts those around him or her in serious danger.

The team at Hoggatt Law Office, P.C. believes that most distracted driving crashes are entirely preventable, especially when a digital device like a cell phone or tablet is the main source of distraction. We also believe that those who allow themselves to be distracted must be held accountable when someone is injured as a result. Our lawyers are familiar with the applicable laws regarding the careless use of a digital device, and we have the knowledge and skills to help you recover fair compensation.

Other Types of Driver Distractions

While they may be the most talked about, electronic devices are not the only causes of distracted driving. A driver could easily be distracted by:

  • Talking to passengers;
  • Tending to children;
  • Eating or drinking;
  • Reaching for objects or items in the car;
  • Adjusting the radio or playing music;
  • Applying makeup; or
  • Daydreaming or thinking about other things.

It only takes a moment or two of distraction to cause an accident—a moment or two that could change your life forever.
