Texting While Driving And Other Distracted Driving Accidents


Statistics show that distracted driving is a leading cause of car accidents nationwide. There are many ways that drivers can be distracted while behind the wheel. They talk on cell phones, text, attend to passengers in the backseat and complete other activities that take their focus off the road.

Drivers should know that they have a responsibility to pay attention behind the wheel. When they fail to do so and when they hurt someone else, they must be held accountable for the harm they cause.

At Ellis Law, this is what we do. Our law firm uses years of experience to hold drivers accountable for negligent, reckless or careless actions behind the wheel. Over the years, we have recovered many millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of injury victims.* We know what actions to take and how to get you the full and fair compensation you deserve. Our legal team has the experience, resources and commitment to protect your rights.

Experience has taught us that distracted driving may take many forms, including:

  • Texting and driving
  • Talking on a cellphone
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Arguing or talking with passengers
  • Grooming or applying makeup
  • Use of GPS and other electronic devices
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol

If you or a loved one has been injured by a distracted driver, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at Ellis Law. We are dedicated to protecting your rights. We have several convenient offices throughout New York, including Albany, NYC and Poughkeepsie.
