We will use our experience dealing with insurance companies and at-fault drivers to make sure you get everything you need to allow you to pay your medical bills, restore your quality of life, and reduce the stress and anxiety that come from being hurt by someone else’s carelessness.
We will also fight to get you money that you have lost from time off from work, vehicle repairs or even a replacement vehicle if your car is totaled.
Do your best to avoid accidents all together. Stay vigilant and look for other drivers doing the unexpected. This is more important than ever: In 2011, 3,331 people were killed in the United States in car crashes involving a distracted driver. An additional 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents involving distracted drivers.
Tragically, of the teenage drivers involved in distracted driving fatalities, 21 percent were distracted by the use of cell phones.
As a result of these developments, Vermont has changed its laws. Now:
- All drivers under 18 are completely banned from using cell phones while driving.
- All drivers, regardless of age or license status, are banned from texting while driving.
If you have been in a car accident, there are certain things you can do to increase your chances of getting the compensation you need. For example, you should always look to see if there were any witnesses to the accident, and if so, take down their contact information. It is also very important to take down the contact and vehicle registration details of any other people involved in the crash.
