Over 60 Years In Queens County

Experienced Legal Help Following A Car Accident Caused By Distracted Driving

The bumper sticker “Hang Up and Drive” illustrates the public’s frustration with drivers who drive carelessly while talking on the phone. Talking on cellphones behind the wheel is extremely dangerous, however, texting while driving is probably even worse.

In 2009, the New York Times reported that people who text while driving are 23 times more likely to cause an accident than those who do not text. Drivers who cause accidents, injuries and fatal injuries because they take their eyes off the road to text, then, are guilty of negligence. Accident victims should hold negligent drivers accountable for their losses, which can include lost wages, medical expenses, damage to a vehicle, diminished earning capacity and pain and suffering.

Longtime Representation Of Car Accident Victims

At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have provided legal help to car accident victims for 60 years and can provide the aggressive, caring and knowledgeable representation you need following a motor vehicle crash. We have the casework experience, resources and medical expert network needed to effectively pursue your full compensation.

We tailor our services to respond to and address the unique circumstances of each case we handle. In cases involving texting while driving, our services will involve a full investigation into the circumstances of the case, including the likelihood that the driver was texting when the accident occurred. We will also pursue phone records to document the inappropriate phone usage. This will allow the judge to charge the jury with the law which prohibits the use of cellphones while driving (with certain exceptions).

Our six decades of car accident law legal experience means we are highly skilled in uncovering all relevant facts in motor vehicle accidents and in working effectively to win the compensation you deserve. For more information about our firm and your rights following an accident, please contact one of our offices.
