Thousands of Americans are injured each year by distracted drivers. Whatever
the case may be, just like the news story we reported, distracted driving
can be caused by a number of issues. Unfortunately there were two different
incidents due to the distracted driver in Fresno. Whatever the case may
be, it is always important to be aware of your surroundings when others
may not. Injuries can be painful and cause victims to lose time and wages
from work, possible physical therapy, suffer from stress and can face
large medical expenses for their injuries. Always contact a personal injury
attorney if you are injured in an accident. A skilled attorney can assess
your legal options and help the victim retain compensation for their injuries.
