Los Angeles traffic can be a nightmare. Many people spend hours in their cars commuting to and from work. When people use drive-time to catch up on emails, make phone calls, text message friends and eat meals, they are not paying attention to what is happening on the road. The result: serious accidents.
At The Law Offices of Hiepler & Hiepler, we have been helping accident victims throughout California for more than 20 years. We stand up to insurance companies and hold distracted drivers responsible for the injuries they cause.
Car Accidents While Texting, Emailing Or Doing Other Distracting Activities
Multi-tasking behind the wheel puts everyone on the road in danger. Common distractions include:
- Texting and driving
- Making phone calls
- Eating food
- Applying cosmetics
- Using a GPS system
- Talking to passengers
- Surfing the Internet
Distracted driving accidents can cause serious, life-threatening injuries. In addition to extreme pain and suffering, financial strain can also result. Missed work, lost wages and expensive medical bills, can make it hard to make ends meet.
Insurance adjusters will try to settle your claim for as little as possible. You shouldn't be stuck paying for the damage caused by a distracted driver.
Our attorneys stand up to large insurance companies and fight for compensation that reimburses our clients for their lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, medical bills, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.
If your insurance company is refusing to cover needed medical treatment, we will fight to get you the health care services you need to treat your injuries. We also represent families who have lost loved ones due to distracted drivers.
Attorney Mark Hiepler has extensive personal and professional experience with distracted driving. For more information about distracted driving, please read his blog regarding this topic here.
