If you’re hit by a drunk driver, or a driver who is texting or checking email, they all have one thing in common: they are engaged in “distracted driving.”
According to AAA, distracted driving accounts for almost SIXTY PERCENT of car accidents involving teen driving.
Distracted driving across all groups led to nearly 3,200 deaths in just one year.
Insurance companies don’t want you to know these laws about accidents with drivers who are drunk, texting, or emailing:
- You may be entitled to punitive damages, which are designed to protect your community;
- Even if you aren’t physically injured, you may be entitled to punitive damages just for property damage; and
- If a drunk driver is involved, you may be entitled to pursue a claim against a bar or restaurant where they were drinking.
