Pursuing Compensation After A Distracted Driving Accident

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 25 years. We stand up to insurance companies and hold distracted drivers responsible for the injuries they cause.

A Strong Track Record Of Results

Our attorneys have achieved record-setting verdicts and settlements for our clients, helping them to move forward after a serious accident or denied insurance claim. Some of these results include:

  • $5.9 Million — Quadriplegic injury, truck collision — Riverside Superior Court
  • $4.9 Million — Serious injury, tractor-trailer collision — Ventura Superior Court
  • $2.9 Million — Catastrophic injuries, road rage rollover car accident — Santa Barbara Superior Court
  • $2.9 Million — Wrongful death, tractor-trailer accident — Ventura Superior Court

Car Accidents While Texting, Emailing Or Doing Other Distracting Activities

Multitasking behind the wheel puts everyone on the road in danger. Common distractions include:

  • Texting and driving
  • Making phone calls
  • Emailing
  • Eating food
  • Applying cosmetics
  • Shaving
  • 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.
