NJ Distracted Drivers Lawyers Who Get Justice for Car Accident Victims

Our Ocean County, NJ car accident attorneys get you compensated

Every day, millions of drivers multitask — eating breakfast in the car, changing radio stations, sending a quick text message. It only takes a moment of inattentive driving to cause a motor vehicle accident, leaving victims with lasting injuries or even the death of a loved one. If you have been the victim of a distracted driver, Ocean County car accident lawyers at the New Jersey law firm of Berry, Sahradnik, Kotzas & Benson will get the justice you deserve and the compensation you need to recover.

Forms of distracted driving

While technology continues to evolve, there are an increasing number of reasons for drivers to take their eyes off the road and potentially cause a disastrous or fatal accident. These include:

  • Eating and drinking
  • Cell phone use
  • Texting while driving

 

  • Using the radio
  • Other passengers
  • Inattentive driving

 

Driving is a responsibility that many people do not take as seriously as they should. Making a phone call or inputting an address into a portable GPS system may seem like inconsequential actions, but by distracting the driver, they can become deadly. NJ distracted driving attorneys firmly believe in holding motorists accountable when their careless behavior causes injury or wrongful death.

What to do after an accident

If you have been involved in a car accident that you believe was caused by a distracted driver, there are several important steps you should take immediately.

  • Call the police. After an accident, you should alert the police or dial 911.
  • Collect contact information. Write down as much information as possible from all drivers involved in the collision and any witnesses. This includes license plates, phone numbers and insurance information.
  • Gather evidence. Take pictures of the cars, the injuries that have been sustained and the location of the accident. These may be helpful if your case goes to trial.
  • Contact an attorney. A skilled attorney can build a strong case against the responsible party in a car crash caused by distracted driving.
