The Villages Distracted Driving Lawyers
There are numerous reasons car accidents occur, but one of the most common is distracted driving. According to the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey, about 40.6 percent of all motor vehicle accidents are caused by distracted driving. From checking a cellphone to changing the music to speaking to someone else in the car, many distractions can cause a driver to lose focus. Losing focus while driving, even for just a few seconds, is hazardous and can cause devastating car accidents that often result in severe and life-threatening injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, 3,450 Americans died in 2016 and 391,000 people were injured in 2015 as a result of distracted driving
If you have been injured or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident caused by the negligence of a distracted driver in The Villages, you deserve justice and compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You should not be financially responsible for the careless actions of another person. A Villages districted driving lawyer at Glover Law Firm can help you recover funds to pay for your losses from the responsible party.

Do I Need a Distracted Driving Lawyer?
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can change your life forever. The crash may have left you with serious injuries, and now the hospital bills are piling up. If your car isn’t a total loss, it’s damaged significantly, and you don’t know how you’re going to pay your bills while you can’t work. You’re traumatized and afraid to even go out on the road again. You don’t know what steps to take next.
If your accident was caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. In Florida, which is a no-fault car insurance state, the compensation you can recover and the party you can recover it from will vary depending on the circumstances of your crash and the severity of your injuries. If your injuries are permanent, you can sue the at-fault party. Otherwise, you will need to file a claim with your own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.
A lawyer can help you gain the compensation you deserve, no matter the circumstances of your case. A lawyer can investigate the accident and gather evidence to help build the most persuasive case. Sometimes, our firm even discovers facts overlooked by the police. On average, people who work with a lawyer in their injury cases earn around three times more compensation than people working on their own. Because the legal process involved with distracted driving cases, including Florida insurance laws, can be complicated and confusing, the last thing you want to do when you’re dealing with a serious injury or the death of a loved one is to navigate legal jargon and paperwork. You need a lawyer who can handle all the complicated legal processes and communications with the insurance company so that you don’t have to. In a difficult time like this, you should be able to focus exclusively on healing. Our team at Glover Law Firm is dedicated to helping you do so.

Types of Cases We Handle
Any action that takes a driver’s attention away from the road, even for just a few seconds, can cause deadly accidents. Drivers who are not paying attention may lose control of their vehicle, fail to notice a hazard on the road in time, or simply make poor decisions.
Distractions generally fall into three main categories, with some distractions fitting multiple categories. These categories are:
- Visual distractions — Anything that takes a driver’s eyes off the road. People outside of the vehicle, people inside the vehicle, other cars, accidents, and billboards can steal a driver’s attention away from the road.
- Physical distractions — Anything that takes a driver’s hand off the wheel. Checking a cellphone or texting, changing the radio station, eating, drinking, applying makeup, and reaching for something in the passenger seat or back seat are all things that can distract drivers and cause accidents.
- Cognitive distractions — Anything that takes a driver’s focus away from the process of driving. Daydreaming or thinking about something other than driving can distract a driver and cause an accident.
Our lawyers are prepared to tackle cases involving these distractions and others. If any of these factors caused your crash, our lawyers will use them to strengthen your case and will fight to get justice for you.
