Despite knowing the risks, many drivers continue to text and drive. Drivers who text while driving pose a tremendous danger to themselves and others on the road.
For years, bikers have struggled to make drivers aware of inattentional blindness. Inattentional blindness, or the inability to notice motorcycles on the road, even when they see them in their field of view, results in thousands of crashes. But worse still is the lack of attention drivers pay when they text, answer phone calls, or otherwise play with their cell phones.
As Kass & Moses motorcycle injury lawyers, we are here to help you seek justice. We help victims injured in accidents caused by texting and driving. Our lawyers use our expertise and experience to make sure justice is served.
How to Watch for Texting and Driving
Bikers need to be especially vigilant and alert on the roads today. Look out for vehicles that don’t maintain a proper speed or seem to have trouble staying in their lane.
Drivers who text while driving often fail to use turn signals and can miss important road signs. You may see them tilt their head down or to the side to gaze at their phone. These are signals that drivers are texting and you should be extremely careful around them.
In the blink an eye – or perhaps, in this case, the chirp of a cell phone – crashes can occur. The motorist is largely protected by their vehicle, but as a biker, you are exposed. You will be the one to face the pain, injuries, and damages incurred. But you don’t have to go it alone.
Kass & Moses believes in fighting for justice, especially when bikers are injured by inattentive drivers.
Texting drivers and otherwise inattentive drivers are just as bad as reckless or intoxicated drivers. They are blatantly breaking the law and putting others at risk. And when crashes occur, we believe they must be held responsible. This begins with a phone call to Kass & Moses.
When you speak with one of our motorcycle lawyers, we will quickly assess your case and then begin an investigation. We will collect data and details reported at the scene, speak with specialists, and search for and analyze any available footage.
We will do everything in our power to tilt the bias in your favor and call out these distracted drivers as the law-breakers they are.
If you have been in a motorcycle crash caused by someone who was texting and driving, you are likely in pain and anxious. Injuries from motorcycle crashes are notoriously heinous, and even with the best medical treatment, you could face years of pain and disability.
Fractures, severe road rash, torn ligaments, concussions, and soft tissue injuries are all very common in motorcycle crashes. These are all complex injuries that require competent medical care. This medical care is expensive, and in a matter of days, medical bills will begin to pile up. This only compounds the fact that money may be tight if you are unable to work while you recover.
No one should face this situation, and certainly no one should go it alone. Kass & Moses is here for you. We allow you to focus on your family, your medical needs, and your own wellbeing while we work for justice in your case and compensation for damages, injuries, lost wages and pain and suffering.
