Philadelphia Texting While Driving Accident Attorney
Experienced litigators take on the newest form of vehicular negligence to protect injured victims
Texting while driving is reckless. It is a form of negligent action that can seriously harm you, your family and innocent victims without any warning. Texting while driving has quickly become a serious epidemic, even more than drinking and driving. The aggressive Philadelphia accident injury attorneys at van der Veen, Hartshorn and Levin have been winning texting and driving lawsuits for more than a decade. We are the best at what we do because we don’t back down when it comes to recovering the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Pennsylvania texting and driving laws
While there is a statewide ban on texting while driving in Pennsylvania, there is no statewide ban on cell phone use without a hands-free device. On the other hand, there is a ban in cities like Philadelphia against using a cellphone without a hands-free device. The laws that the at-fault driver broke in the moments leading to your injuries are additional evidence that our tenacious accident injury attorneys will use in court. Juries do not like drivers that negligently break the law and harm others. Trust our accident lawyers to use this evidence to maximize the damages you recover for your injuries and deter others from texting and driving. We take a firm stand against those who text and drive causing injury to innocent victims.
Fierce legal advocates you can trust
Our Philadelphia accident injury attorneys have seen the horrors that arise when people are distracted for even a moment by texting and driving. We have recovered more than $100 million in verdicts and settlements because we always fight for maximum results. Seeing the aftermath of horrific accidents – the long, painful recovery, the stress of lost wages and the strain of long term care or disfigurement has only strengthened our resolve to take an aggressive stand for accident victims. The extent of your injuries and how long recovery is going to take sets the baseline for what damages you are entitled. Our Philadelphia accident lawyers establish a clear record to demonstrate the full cash value of all costs, both tangible and intangible. We eagerly go to trial if we do not get the maximum amount through a settlement.
The types of damages we attempt to recover for you include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Damage to your property
- Compensation for disfigurement or disability
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages (in some cases)
