Greenville Distracted Driving Attorney

Injured? We can help you.

Let's go get your money

You or a loved one have been injured in a distracted driving accident, and you need the help of a Greenville car accident attorney. Failing to focus on the road while driving could lead to a devastating injury crash. Victims could be forced to deal with significant injuries, extensive treatment and rehabilitation, lost income from not being able to work, and ongoing mental and emotional pain. The financial and emotional toll these accidents can take could be wide-ranging, affecting not only the victims of distracted driving accidents but their families as well.

If a distracted driver is responsible for your injuries, they should be held accountable for their carelessness. Hammack Law Firm can help if you suffered severe or catastrophic injuries as a result of a distracted driver in the Greenville area.

Our experienced personal injury attorneys will review all the details of the crash and build a strong case for compensation. Your lawyer will first seek a settlement that takes into account all of your current and future costs associated with the crash. If the person’s insurance company refuses to offer you fair compensation, you could file a lawsuit, and your attorney will fight for damages in court.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer for a Distracted Driving Accident?

When you are in a car accident, including one caused by a distracted driver, properly gathered evidence from the crash will be the key to getting the compensation you deserve from the injuries (or death), pain, and suffering that you and your family are experiencing.

To obtain the evidence needed to prove your injury claim, you need to know what questions to ask and where to look. The truck driver and the trucking company might try to conceal or destroy any evidence of negligence or wrongdoing, and it is crucial to secure it before it is gone. This is where a lawyer with experience handling distracted driving claims can help you. Our attorneys will take swift and decisive action to investigate the crash, identify and secure evidence, and build a persuasive case on your behalf.

A significant hurdle in many distracted driving cases is trying to negotiate a fair settlement with insurance companies. While the insurance adjusters may seem very friendly and sympathetic to your situation, their job is to ensure that the company pays as little as possible for any injury claims.

You’ll want to have a skilled attorney on your side to handle any settlement negotiations with insurance companies. Most insurance companies are aware that individuals without legal training and experience don’t know what’s involved in negotiating a fair and just car accident settlement. They count on claimants to be unaware of the process and willing to accept anything they offer. Or, they hope that the victim will be desperate for a payout and ready to take a lowball settlement offer.

Victims of distracted driving accidents are often willing to accept a quick settlement to get the money they desperately need to pay for mounting medical bills and other expenses. Unfortunately, many don’t realize that the settlement is final. They might find out later that they are not eligible for any more compensation once the settlement money runs out. From that point on, any expenses associated with the crash will have to come out of their own pocket.

Make sure you have an experienced truck accident attorney in your corner to protect your rights and to make sure that you receive fair compensation for all the effects of the distracted driving accident you were involved in.

Distracted Driving Explained

Distracted driving is classified as any action that takes a driver’s attention away from driving. Distractions endanger other drivers and passengers riding with them, pedestrians, passengers in the distracted driver’s vehicle, and even the distracted driver themselves.

Today’s most frequent distraction is smartphone usage while driving, but there are other types of distractions as well, including:

  • Eating and drinking
  • Changing the stereo
  • Using navigation devices or apps
  • Talking on the phone (even in hands-free mode)
  • Rubbernecking
  • Daydreaming
  • Grooming

Distracted driving is entirely preventable, but devastating accidents are caused by distracted drivers every day. If you are the victim of a crash caused by a distracted truck driver, you deserve compensation for your injuries and other damages that you have suffered. At Hammack Law Firm, you can get the help you need to take legal action against the parties responsible for harming you.

Distracted Driving Types

Distracted driving infractions can be categorized into three main areas:

  • Visual Distractions: These are any types of distractions that occur within the driver’s line of sight and cause them to shift their attention away from the road.
  • Manual Distractions: These distractions are any situations requiring a driver to move their hands away from safely operating their vehicle. This means their hands are not on the steering wheel, the gear shifter (for trucks with manual transmissions), lights, windshield wipers, or other critical driving operations.
    Manual distractions often include texting, talking on the phone, using social media, adjusting the stereo, using GPS systems or navigation apps, or other common distractions within the truck’s cabin.
  • Cognitive Distractions: Daydreaming, fatigue, stress, or listening to music are all examples of cognitive distractions. While these are more difficult to identify in some cases, they are still quite dangerous and could directly lead to a severe injury or fatal crash.

No matter how or why the driver was distracted, there is never an excuse for hurting innocent drivers, passengers, cyclists, pedestrians, or anyone else. An experienced truck accident attorney will make sure that the driver, their employer, and any other potentially-liable party is held accountable.

Distracted Driving Injuries

The injuries caused by distracted driving accidents can be severe and even life-threatening. Distracted driving accident injuries can include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Ligament Damage
  • Soft Tissue Damage
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Wrongful Death

Distracted driving accidents can cause any of these injuries and many more. If you have been injured in a distracted driving accident, contact Hammack Law Firm to find out how we can help you. We will seek full and fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, repairs (or replacement) of your vehicle and other damages.

Call Hammack Law Firm Today for a Free Consultation

Any type of car accident is devastating, but distracted driving accidents are some of the most challenging to accept and cope with. Victims have a right to be angry and demand answers, mainly because the crash could have been prevented entirely if the driver had been paying proper attention to the road.

The skilled 18-wheeler accident lawyers of Hammack Law Firm can help you get the compensation you’re owed. Our goal will be to recover the money you need to rebuild your life and move on from the crash.

Testimonials

I am so thankful for Paul and his team! My wife was hit by a car over a year ago while standing watching our kids at a field day. Paul and I discussed the situation and it was clear because of the significant liability on the part of the person driving the car that we needed to pursue an insurance settlement. We made one phone call to the hospital and insurance company and knew we were in over our heads. After that I knew that HLFs expertise was necessary to navigate these waters. They did a terrific job and exactly 7 months after the incident, all was settled. We are extremely satisfied and thankful for their work.
Did I mention Lynn? AMAZING. So refreshing to watch pros navigate what could be a stressful and drawn-out process with elegance and efficiency.

Well…I guess in my eyes a Testimony is more valuable than a Review! My wife has been involved with her case with the help of Hammack Law Firm. I was not involved nowhere near as much as my wife but yet I witnessed the struggle. Paul doesn’t make promises and guarantees that he can’t keep but the one promise and the one guarantee is that he will do everything he can to help you and be there for you! The measures of this man is immeasurable because he’s a man of Faith. My wife and I witnessed that first hand. Paul’s staff shows what his expectations are to be which makes them great at what they do! Now some of you may not post such praises and positive vibes but one can only speak from one’s experience and ours was Highly Favored! Stay Focused Paul you and your staff are continued to be destined for Greatness!

When I had my car accident, my life suddenly and radically changed. Instead of running my company and traveling all over the country to see clients, I found myself in bed for weeks, unable to move, facing multiple surgeries and procedures, and fully at the mercy of family and caretakers. Paul took our case and helped us through the emotional and financial strain of the situation. He helped us get the full insurance settlement quickly and efficiently, which helped get our life back on track.
