Were You Seriously Injured by A Distracted Driver?

Truck drivers are required to keep their eyes on the road and remain free of distraction – failure to do so can easily lead to a serious crash. Truck drivers have the added responsibility of operating some of the largest vehicles on the road, many of which weigh up to 80,000 pounds. These vehicles can cause catastrophic damage, even in relatively minor collisions. If you were seriously injured by a distracted truck driver, you may be able to take legal action to secure the compensation you need.

Call our firm at (440) 252-4399 to discuss your case with an experienced attorney today.

Distracted truck drivers are among the most dangerous hazards on the road, and cause far too many injuries and deaths every year. Lawyers at The Becker Law Firm have a long history of representing people severely injured on the roadways and we are committed to securing our clients the maximum compensation available. If you were seriously injured by a truck driver, contact our Cleveland truck accident attorneys today to discuss your legal options.

How are Distracted Drivers a Danger to Other Motorists?

Truck drivers who look down at their phones on the road are approximately six times as likely to be involved in what the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) calls a safety-critical event. These incidents include near-crashes, crashes, and unintentionally deviating from a lane. The FMCSA reports that the average person looks at a cell phone for almost four seconds when checking it, and that amount of time looking away from the road is incredibly dangerous. A driver traveling at 65 mph can cover approximately 300 feet in that amount of time, essentially blind to the road.

Truck drivers have a number of restrictions in place for how they are permitted to use their mobile devices on the road. According to these regulations set by the FMCSA, a truck driver must either use a hands-free system to use a phone, or press a single button. However, negligent and reckless drivers continue to ignore these regulations, putting the lives of their fellow motorists at stake.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
