Chicago Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers

Distracted drivers pose a risk to themselves and everyone else on the road. Eating, drinking, talking, putting on makeup, tending to children and looking at maps continue to be sources of distraction for drivers. In the past 10 years, the electronic distractions to drivers have changed in a fundamental way. Now drivers are tempted to watch videos and send text messages while driving.

Injuries and fatalities caused by distracted driving are 100 percent preventable and 100 percent caused by negligence. That is why our Chicago car accident attorneys seek 100 percent compensation for the damages our clients suffered at the hands of a distracted driver.

The Chicago distracted driving accident attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group stay up to date on the latest laws and regulations designed to curb accidents caused by distracted driving. Holding distracted drivers financially responsible for the damages they cause to others provides justice for the injured. It can also help achieve social change by showing that distracted driving is an expensive mistake in terms of lives as well as dollars.

Driven to Distraction: Actions That Put Others at Risk

Each Chicago personal injury lawyer at The Horwitz Law Group represents clients who were harmed when other drivers caused accidents because they were distracted while driving. Examples of distracted driving include:
