Imagine that you leave work one day and you get into your car. You mentally prepare yourself for the commute home -- the long one that it is, it may take your favorite album or song to get through it. As you get on the highway on your usual route home, you come across another driver who seems oblivious to the other vehicles all around them. You soon see why: they are looking down at their lap because they are sending a text on their cellphone to their friend.
And then what happens next truly ruins your day: the distracted driver swerves into your lane and clips your car, causing a motor vehicle accident. You suffer injuries as a result, and now you'll be dealing with the aftermath of this accident for weeks, if not months. All you were trying to do is get home to your family. Instead, you're injured, hurt and paying thousands of dollars in medical costs and auto repairs.
Holding negligent, irresponsible or distracted drivers responsible is really important nowadays, not just for your personal well-being and for a sense of justice, but to also uphold some semblance of safety and respect out on the road. Reckless drivers are a danger to everyone.
At The Law Offices of Vincent J. Scotto, we have the experience and the desire to help victims of motor vehicle accidents hold their offending drivers responsible for what they did. If you are in need of legal representation after a car accident, don't hesitate to consult with us.
